Not all of us want to look like a walking hongbao this Lunar New Year. If red isn’t exactly your colour, or you’ve purchased a rockin’ dress in another colour, don’t freak out. We’ve got some subtle ways for you to rock red without compromising your style ethos.
Rock a red lipstick
Red lipstick is easier said than done. You have to start with the daunting task of looking for a shade of red that’s flattering on you, and then try to master the look. For beginners, we suggest getting a lip liner that matches your red lipstick as well to help your colour within the lines.
Master a red smokey eye
A red smokey eye is something for the braver amongst us. It’s not an easy, or a subtle look to master but you can take it down a notch by rocking a pink smokey eye instead.
Just because nobody else can see it doesn’t mean it doesn’t count. The good thing about Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year being so close to each other is that there are heaps of red-coloured everything in stores.
Channel Dorothy and rock a pair of Sassy-approved red footwear. We know you have to do a lot of walking visiting friends and relatives so a pair of comfy red flats might be a better idea than heels.
If all else fails, you can always turn to red nails. We love this take on red nails – ombre and matte at the same time so you get to shake up the red talons scene a lil’ bit!
