The Ox loves comfort and coziness. If there is such an opportunity, it would generally stay at home. It is so nice to sit by the cozy fireplace with an interesting book and a cup of tea or coffee. Even outside its house the Ox creates a cozy atmosphere around itself. It is happy to wear comfortable shoes without heels and clothes of a "casual" style.
The Ox treats bright colors ambiguously. On the one hand, it may not like vivid colors in makeup. Everyone knows the expression, "red rag to a bull," which means that something has awoken bad feelings. On the other hand, all of us periodically need to let out our emotions. Therefore, it's up to you to decide whether to wear red or not.
Makeup in the year of the Ox is a minimal and all-conquering naturalness. Yet it is also bright "war paint" for the brave, temperamental persons. These two areas are completely opposite to each other, you have to think carefully about what to choose.
It should be noted that the Year of the Ox makeup places increased demands on the state and appearance of the skin. The Ox is thorough, purposeful, and responsible. It wants to be the best at everything.

Top manufacturers pleased women of fashion with wide color palettes for eye shadows, lipsticks, and lip glosses. There were a lot of innovative tools for the care of the eyebrows.

The Earth Element enhances the practicality and validity of the Ox, who prefers to consider any question comprehensively, in close connection with the others.
