For an oc­ca­sion as big as the Lu­nar New Year, you’ll need a true work­horse beauty look to sur­vive. Choose one that strikes the per­fect bal­ance be­tween prac­ti­cal and In­sta­gram­wor­thy—no com­pro­mises!

Make Up For Ever artist Lei Ponce has some tips to cre­ate a fes­tive look to start the year with a bang: Fo­cus on the eyes and go min­i­mal on the skin. “This look suits the Lu­nar New Year per­fectly be­cause you can wear it any time of the day with­out look­ing over­done,” he says. To look even more fes­tive, add a few el­e­ments in­spired by tra­di­tion: glitter and red to match all the dec­o­ra­tions.

1. start­ing with clean and oil­free skin, be­gin build­ing a fresh and dewy base. for a nat­u­ral glow, ap­ply make up for ever’s Ul­tra HD Skin Booster (P2250, sm mega fash­ion hall). then ap­ply the Step 1 Smooth­ing Base Primer (P2450) to blur pores and help foun­da­tion glide on smoother. choose a light-cov­er­age foun­da­tion with a lu­mi­nous fin­ish: the Wa­ter Blend

Face & Body Foun­da­tion (P2700) will even out your skin tone while let­ting your nat­u­ral skin tex­ture show through.

2. fill in your brows with make up for ever’s Brow Gel (P1200) while you wait for the foun­da­tion to set. Prep the lips with a gen­er­ous layer of the Ul­tra HD Lip Booster in Cin­ema (P1500) for hy­dra­tion.

3. sculpt and high­light your base with the Sculpt­ing Pal­ette (P2550) to de­fine your fea­tures, and for a long-last­ing flush, layer a nude­hued cream un­der the Sculpt­ing Blush (P1850).

4. Now, the eyes: Be­gin by cre­at­ing a sharp cat eye with your fa­vorite black liner. once it dries, out­line the wing with a gold line. for a hint of red and bright­ness, smoke out a red lip liner on the lower outer corner of your eyes and high­light your in­ner cor­ners with the Pro Light Fu­sion in Golden Pink (P2350). Line your wa­ter­line with a nude eye pen­cil to open up your eyes, then fin­ish with a gen­er­ous coat of mas­cara.

5. for the lips, Lei rec­om­mends a red gra­di­ent lip topped with gloss. the aqua Lip Water­proof Li­pliner Pen­cil in #1C (P1350) will serve as the long-last­ing base that’ll last through a meal, but the Artist Plex­igloss (P1200) will make your lips look amaz­ing.

6. to seal the look, spritz an even layer of the Mist & Fix (P1650) all over the face.
