16 Lunar New Year beauty products to bring prosperity to your makeup collection
Lunar New Year falls on February 5th this year, ushering in the Year of the Pig. A cultural festival that spans across various Asian countries, Lunar New Year (also referred to as the Spring Festival) marks the beginning of a new year on the traditional lunisolar calendar. The pig, which resides as the 12th animal on the zodiac, serves as a symbol of wealth. And obvs, we’re all about getting that bread this year.
Among the hoopla of Lunar New Year festivities—exchanging red envelopes, indulging in new year feasts, and lighting incense—perhaps our favorite unorthodox tradition is the limited-edition products that drop from some beloved beauty brands. Who says you can’t indulge in mooncakes and sticky rice fillings while rocking a Year of the Pig highlighter, too? You’ll definitely need some luxe beauty products to complement your Lunar New Year look.
