estée lauder. We are longtime fans of the Advanced Night Repair Serum ($152) from Estée Lauder. A cult classic for good reason, this serum is suitable for all skin types and visibly tackles the look of fine lines, uneven complexion and loss of firmness. Just in time for Lunar New Year, this skincare staple gets a makeover with a limited edition red bottle with gold detailing depicting dragons throughout.

charlotte tilbury. Look ahead to the new year with the perfect peachy smokey eye. The Queen of Luck Luxury Palette ($70) features four wearable shades that can be applied to create a warm-toned shimmer. This quad boasts a matte brown that can be layered to create a smokey look that can be amped up by topping it with the duo-chrome metallic pink or the golden shimmer.

eau thermale avéne. While we love this time of year for new beginnings, it’s still tough on our skin due to cold weather. Thankfully the Avène Thermal Spring Water Spray ($25) delivers instant soothing relief to irritated or tight pores. Delicate enough for even babies, this aerosol spray delivers a cool mist to instantly rebalance stressed skin.

nars cosmetics. Get the look of a  filter IRL with the NARS Cosmetics’ Light Reflecting Setting Powder Set ($54) with a no-flashback guarantee. The pressed translucent powder offers natural light diffusion while creates a softer look that fade fine lines, wrinkles and pores. Plus, it’s currently available in a red hot compact in celebration of the new year.

u beauty. You can’t ring in the new year without a bold lip. Our choice for the perfect lucky red is the shade Shanghai in U Beauty’s Plasma Lip Compound ($68). This lip plumper and hydrator is consistently one of our go-to lippies, this vibrant red not only packs a punch visually, but also enhances volume and improve texture.
