Lunar New Year Tết Inspired Make-Up

Hey everyone!! As we all know, tomorrow (23rd Jan) is the first day of Lunar New Year, which is also called 'Tet' in Vietnamese.

Depending on each family, the celebration lasts for 7 to 15 days which means everyone should avoid cussing, being unhappy, arguing and all the negative stuff on those days. It is said that you will have bad luck throughout the year if you don't follow these taboos.

Also, remember not to sweep your house tomorrow! Sweeping out on Lunar New Years will bring negativity to your fortune for the rest of the year since it's believed to be 'sweeping out your fortune'.

Anyways, ceremony's ways and offerings varies from people to people depending on which part of Vietnam an they are from.

My family is from Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) of South Vietnam, so for florals, we prefer to decorate our homes with Hoa Mai (Ochna Intergerrima) which today's make-up look will be inspired of!

For your info, North Vietnam celebrates with peach flowers that are just as pretty!
