    Chinese New Year Makeup

    • 1 min read

    BY CHELSEA SIMMONS

    This Chinese New Year makeup look was inspired by the year of the Dragon. According to the Chinese Zodiac*, “…the Dragon is the mightiest of the signs. Dragons symbolize such character traits as dominance and ambition. Dragons prefer to live by their own rules and if left on their own, are usually successful. They’re driven, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. They’re passionate in all they do and they do things in grand fashion.” *http://www.chinesezodiac.com/dragon.php.
