Picks to match your CNY glow up

A new year means new plans, new beginnings, and of course, makeovers. And for those of us who feel like January flew by so fast that we weren't able to make the changes we hoped for, thankfully, the Lunar New Year gives us a great do-over opportunity. Along with our own routines, wardrobes, and overall lifestyle getting a revamp, our favourite beauty picks are also heading that route. Ahead, check out how your favourite products got a Lunar New Year makeover.
