Chinese New Year Inspired

It's Chinese New Year on Friday, the year of the Horse [which I recently found out I was born in after years of thinking I was a sheep, as the Chinese New Year started after my birthday!]. This is my new years inspired look, using traditional reds and gold. I also tried to draw the Chinese symbol for horse in eyeliner.

The spirit of the horse is recognized to be the Chinese people's ethos – making unremitting efforts to improve themselves. It is energetic, bright, warm-hearted, intelligent and able. Ancient people liked to designate an able person as 'Qianli Ma', a horse that covers a thousand li a day (one li equals 500 meters).

Used: Fyrinnae Scarlet Macaw on the inner corner, Victorian Disco Godric on the outer corner, Shiro Cornucopia on the lower lashline. Revlon Runway lashes Golden Saturn and Collection Extreme liner with Rimmel Jet Black liner on the waterline. Brows are Victorian Disco For The Horde and Helga. Rhinestones from eBay [can you tell I'm obsessed with them?]

Happy Chinese New Year Everyone!
