Chinese New Year – NO Monkey Business : Mac Cosmetics


Year of the monkey, Chinese New Year is February 8th 2016.

Let’s talk about “imagination, creativity and identity”.

Mac Cosmetics had recently introduced their 2016 collection which was inspired by Chinese Opera. Chris Chang puts a twist to Mac Collection featuring a vivid cutting edge color which I personally find them lively and stunning.

Brings my memory back to when I was little girl watching the Chinese Opera playing on stage. The elaborate costumes and makeup of the actresses, so bright, vibrant coupled with music and dance. And with Mac launching their newest 2016  collection, that’s so cool.

One of the female opera actress with full makeup and costume. Look at the headdress, I want to try wearing it. But you know me, I look horrible, ya I know, I know (bahaha!)). I should stop pretending to imagine that I’ll look like them.

History: I’m no historian but I got this from my google search and share it here:

“Kun opera orKunqu Opera, is one of the oldest extant forms of Chinese opera. It evolved from the Kunshan melody, and dominated Chinese theater from the 16th to the 18th centuries. The style originated in the Wu cultural area.”

Now, now! Who needs this in your collection? Don’t forget to leave your comments in the comment section.

Happy Chinese New Year to all friends who celebrate this special tradition, old and young, near or far! 😀
