Make-up tutorials for The Legend of Zhen Huan
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:
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.
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!
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.
