Chinese New Year à la Mary Quant

Posted on Posted in beauty, fashion

In a few hard blinks, it’ll be Chinese New Year!! This year, it’s gonna be different because I’m going to be in New Zealand during CNY!

It’s sort of a triple celebration of Chinese New Year, my sister’s marriage and me being able to study in AUT, Auckland for 2 years! Although, I’m still not quite sure if the last one should be considered a celebration.. I kinda miss everyone in Malaysia AND Singapore already..

。・゚゚・(>д<)・゚゚・。 (It’ll be so funny if people actually cry like this..)

Anyway, let’s not get all soppy, shall we? CNY is a happy festival. Celebrate and wish for happiness, prosperity and longevity! We’re celebrating CNY in the most different manner this year, so why not blog about it? Right? RIGHT! I recently got this Mary Quant Lipstick that I want to wear during CNY (And make my mum and sister wear them too). Everyone’s gonna think I’m a walking firecracker.

On the 2nd day of CNY, it’ll be my sister’s wedding. I’d be wearing this retro looking dress. The lipstick matches the dress perfectly. If you disagree with me, I don’t know which planet you come from.
if you’re wondering.. Yes, I took the photos in the kitchen. I like the kitchen very much and everyone associates me and my gaming habits in the kitchen, so it HAS to be in the kitchen since it was the last day in Malaysia for me.

My sister’s wedding will be on the 2nd day of CNY, and guess whose doing her makeup? *Points at myself* YES, she’s gonna be my Barbie Bride-to-be.

My mum’s wearing this beautiful red cheong sam for the wedding and I convinced her to use the same Mary Quant lipstick. What do you know? It pairs perfectly.

Red hot Amber! Tsk. Triple, baby! You could tie your hair into a high ponytail and make the lips stand out more. Makes you look less messy anyway.
The temperature in New Zealand now is about.. 15-20°C, so I’m gonna put this french coat on. So diva right? *flips hair*

The one I have is R-01 (SCINTILLATION). It’s not blood red but slightly lighter which is good for Chinese New Year. Imagine the situation(s)..

You visit your relatives and friends’ houses, yum cha and eat some snacks (And get some ang paos), if you have blood red lips, you would have to keep reapplying to make sure it looks even and still.. Blood red. This Mary Quant lipstick kinda just stays.. While you can just be yourself and make conversations with family and friends without constantly worrying about reapplying your lipstick.

Next blog entry will be on our little family trip to Rotorua OR Laneway Festival. PROMISE!
