Get Lucky In 2018 With These Makeup Looks

You're gonna love these lucky looks


As beauty junkies, we can already attest to the power of cosmetics in warding off bad vibes. Even just a swipe of our favourite lippie can already improve our mood. But did you know that your beauty look can also help in attracting good fortune? It's as simple as wearing your lucky colours in your beauty look. 


We consulted with New Trend Lifestyle on what lucky and on-trend colours we can consider to improve our luck in 2018, the Year of the Dog. Read on as we recommend the beauty style you can try according to your zodiac sign.


Blue Under Eyeliner for Rat (鼠)

Blue is one of your main lucky colours for 2018. Instead of using the regular blue eyeshadow, why not spice it up a bit with blue under eyeliner instead? It’s just a little icing, but it goes a long way in making your eyes pop.


Black Lipstick or Smokey Eyes for Ox (牛)

Black and coffee are your best bets for next year. If you’re up for a daring look, then go ahead and try wearing a black lip colour from time to time. Alternatively, you can go for a smokey eye look using black and coffee colours as your main shades.


Bold, Red Lip for Tiger (虎)

Everybody can wear a red lip and sport the confident attitude that comes with it. You can try popular red lipsticks that are known to be flattering for all skin tones, like M.A.C's Ruby Woo or the new Fenty Beauty Stunna.


Light Green Eyeshadow for Rabbit (兔)

Green eyeshadow can be tricky; the key to making it work is to only add to areas you want to emphasize like your lids. With practice, you’ll perfect this look just in time to welcome the new year.


Drunken Blush for Dragon (龙)

Drunken blush is a trendy look — and colour — right now, and pink is the shade of choice to achieve this natural-looking makeup. It just so happens that it’s also a lucky colour for Dragons this coming 2018.


Silver Nail Polish for Snake (蛇)

Give your matte polishes a rest and paint your digits with metallic hues next year. Silver is a favourable shade for you.


Orange Lips for Horse (马)

Attract fortune and catch eyes at the same time in a bright orange lipstick. As a general rule, fair-skinned ladies should go for deep and peach-orange while those with medium to dark complexions can wear plain orange and corals.


Gold Eyeshadow for Goat (羊)

Go for the gold this 2018, literally and figuratively. Add a little shimmer to your makeup style with gold-coloured eyeshadow.


Purple Hair Or Purple Polish for Monkey (猴)

As someone who is born under the Monkey sign, being eccentric and playful are some of your prominent traits and they reflect on your beauty choices. So if you’re considering another hair revamp next year, take note that one of your lucky colours is purple. Then again, if circumstances won’t allow you to experiment with hair colour, you can go for a purple manicure instead.


Yellow Eyeshadow for Rooster (鸡)

It can be daunting at first, but yellow eyeshadow can work when combined with a darker, complementary colour like orange. The intensity of the look can be calibrated depending on the occasion. For example, yellow can be added just to the lids for more formal events.


Fuschia Lips for Dog (狗)

Ditch the light pinks and instead pick some darker pink variants like fuchsia and mulberry. Both colours are your lucky charms next year.


Nude Lipstick or Nude Nails for Pig (猪)

Beige is a great choice for you in 2018. If you haven’t found the perfect nude lippie for you yet, then give the colour beige a try. If it doesn’t suit you, clean, nude beige nails are also an option.
