Do you feel that time flies even faster after Christmas? New Year's Eve and Chinese New Year's Eve are coming up after annual company dinners.

You will likely spend a lot of time and effort preparing your various outfits before Chinese New Year because you want to let your friends and relatives know that you’ve been doing very well outside your hometown. You refuse to let your friends and relatives see the side of you working overtime daily; therefore, you must up your game on the makeup and skincare routines. Make sure to cover the dark circles under the eyes and the lack of sleep associated with those.

The Two-Pronged Approach to Skincare and Beauty!
Starting with skincare, the fastest and most effective way is a beauty face mask. The hydrating essence that comes with the mask should also be used seriously. Make sure to put the Abloom Green All Purpose Mask and Snow Fox Natural Moisturizing Mask Series introduced in the previous articles to good use!
Your skin will glow if it is moisturized enough. Additionally, I would like to share my opinion based on my experience using face masks regularly. I usually put on the mask and then go into the shower. The steam in the shower will open up pores and allow better absorption of the face mask essence.
The next step is to put on makeup. To look natural and colorful, the base of your makeup must be light enough. If you have dry skin, add one or two drops of Abloom miracle oil to your foundation to increase your skin's moisture level.
For normal or oily skin types, if you feel that the base of your makeup is not moisturizing enough in winter, you can mix it with a moisturizing lotion and set it with a heavier foundation. For the T-zone (the sides of the nose and eye area) use a finer powder to set the makeup. If you think it's not bright enough, pat on liquid or cream on the cheekbones and nose for highlighting.
Choose a liquid or cream blush and mix it with your foundation to strengthen your cheeks, then finish with a powder blush for a longer-lasting blush. Of course, you can choose a lipstick you regularly use as a blush.
The new year, choose a red lipstick to match your skin color! Remember to choose matte or slightly glossy lipsticks to create textured and sophisticated red lips. You should also pay attention to moisturizing your lips with matte lipsticks. Apply lip balm for 10 minutes before putting on lipstick, and then apply lipstick after lightly pressing it with a tissue.

After applying this makeup, I hope you will receive more red envelopes! I hope we all “make” good colors and impressions in the new year of 2023.
