The Monkey has a good character, so it's not hard to please. You can constantly change the images, applying your makeup according to your mood and circumstances. The Monkey reacts favorably to any of your choices; the most important thing is not to be dull and boring.
The active Monkey does not tolerate boredom. Whether in long trips or short walks, hikes in the woods, trips out of town, or just visits to friends, it is clear that in such circumstances makeup should not be overthought. The priority is convenience and comfort, a reasonable minimalism.
At the same time, the monkey loves unusual and bright elements. Therefore, for special occasions you should try a complex, dramatic makeup look. Emphasize your personality using colored eyeliner and mascara or a variety of shades of pearl eye shadows. Their magic shine will delight the Monkey and bring you good luck.
