Chinese Dancer Stage Look
This stage makeup look is perfect for a Shanghai Doll, Kabuki performer, or Nutcracker Chinese Dancer. The look changes easily from a standard stage makeup.
A very red lipstick is applied just at the middle of the upper and lower lip to create a tiny rosebud mouth. Eyeliner is extended out at the sides of the eyes up. Meet the upper and lower eyeliners at the sides to close and angle eyes for an Asian look. If lids are naturally full they can easily be reduced to a more Asian almond eyed look by using black shadow across the lid. Very red cheeks just on the apples will make the face look rounder. This tutorial is a very dramatic version to create a classic Shanghai Doll look. For a softer effect us brown onto the lid instead of black.
