Chinese Doll

Not to be confused with my previous post, ‘China Doll‘. 

Makeup for today.

I pulled out my denim cheongsam, which I’ve not worn in a really long time, which is a pity, because it’s such a beautiful dress. Did a really simple look to go with it to bring out the Chineseness of the features and highlight the dress.

If you look at photographs of pin up girls or women wearing the cheongsam, eye makeup is always kept simple. Eyeshadow (if used at all) isn’t really discernible, but the thick eyeliner (upper lashline only) and lashes are there to define the eyes. Eyebrows are perfectly groomed, usually with a pretty defined arch. And the focus of the look is always on the lips, which are always round and full, and painted a bright colour.

I used a stronger blush than I would normally do to get the doll-like image for this look. Also skipped using white eyeliner for the lower lashline.

Lipsticks are just great.
