Make-up tutorials for The Legend of Zhen Huan

Chinese DramasMisc

I have no make-up skills whatsoever…what can I say, I’m a total himono-onna!  But that doesn’t stop me from noticing all the concubine’s wonderful make-up looks in the Legend of Zhen Huan.  I even thought to myself, HMM it’d be nice if someone did a tutorial on this.  And what do you know, today I stumbled upon a few make-up tutorials made specifically for the LZH!  It’s awesome to see what drama fans can come up with. 😀

I found these tutorials on a make-up blog: Ms Nancy’s Fancies.  She covered 3 looks, two of which are for Zhen Huan and one for Hua Fei!  The links are below:

1.  Zhen Huan: Minimal, natural look (when she first entered the palace)

This is pretty much your classic “natural look” with light eyeliner/mascara and hardly any eyeshadow.  I think the tutorial pulled off the eyeliner perfectly. 

2. Zhen Huan: More extreme, dramatic look (after she became Gui Fei)

Of course I also like Zhen Huan’s later look, which is much more severe and dramatic.  It’s kinda hard to tell in the overall picture, but if you look at the close-up tutorial pictures, you can see that the eyeshadow is spot-on! 

3.  Hua Fei: Overall look

Last but not least, I’m glad that there’s a tutorial for Hua Fei’s make-up.  I love her light-pink eyeshadow as well as her lip-stick colors.  The tutorial has a different take on Hua Fei’s look, with a bit more of a light brownish eyeshadow. 

If you really think about it, the make-up for all the ladies in the Legend of Zhen Huan is amazing.  It’s subtle and moderate but still shows each character’s personality.  It’s not always eye-catching at first, but when you take a closer look you realize it’s beautiful and tastefully done.  Of course, even modern dramas tend to go for the natural look, but I think the LZH takes it to a whole new level.
