We love period dramas – engrossing storylines, lavish sets, but most of all, we love the makeup looks! Here are our fave looks from recent Chinese films and TV shows.
1. Arise, The Golden Sun
Empress Phoenix in The Curse of the Golden Flower
In “Curse of the Golden Flower”, the use of gold and red of the eyes remind us of a sunrise. We think it’s sexy and confident!
2. Scarlet Red
Empress Wan in The Banquet
Red is such a royal colour! We love how confident this makes actress Zhang Ziyi look. The bold red on her eyes is statement-making.
3. Lady Gorgeous
Empress Zhen in Legend of Zhen Hua
It’s all about the contouring here. The use of neutral earth tones helps define her delicate features and bring out her bambi eyes.
4. Plum Blossom Kiss
Empress Wu from Empress of China
A defined winged eyeliner, matte ruby lips and porcelain skin is always classic and looks good on virtually everyone.
5. Pretty in Pink
Empress Zhao from The Queens
Sweet pink lips with a soft wash of pink eyeshadow looks feminine and demure. Perfect if you’re wearing a 50s style fit-n-flare dress this CNY!
