Transcending Traditions to Love Ourselves this CNY

Transcending Traditions to Love Ourselves this CNY

Dear Lovelies,

Have you heard of the ancient Chinese Legend? Once upon a time, there was a ferocious monster by the name of “Nian”. Every year on New Year’s Eve, it would emerge from the dark sea and hunt villagers and their livestock. This catastrophe was overturned when an old, wise man came along the village and instructed the villagers to light their homes with candles and paste red papers on their front doors. Since then, people would dress in new clothes and set off fireworks to ward off evil spirits. Gone were the times when the village was dark. Chinese New Year gained its term “Guo Nian”, symbolizing the survival of Nian’s attack.

The AVALON Beauty Team would like to commemorate this ancient legend and keep it close to heart by recommending ways we can ‘Guo Nian’ together this year!


Dress in Pastel Tones to Start the New Year Bright


What I love about the online retail space is that there are just so many options available! One example would be the pastel collection by Fayth! Flaunting a variety of timeless pieces, ranging from playsuits to sweet dresses, this apparel store does not disappoint. The pastel collection is absolutely lovely, perfect for a bright sunny day when you want to look elegant yet playful. Check them out to ‘Guo Nian’ brightly!


Be Bold with that Eyeshadow Palette – Have fun experimenting!


Of course, how can we forget makeup. It’s that fun time of the year where cosmetic brands come up with funky themes to match CNY. Oftentimes decked in red or sporting the zodiac animal of the year, brands like COLOURPOP show us how to have fun in the Year of the Ox! Check out their cute punchline, ‘the lunar the better’. Got to love their beautiful palettes. Go big this CNY and have fun painting away!
