It's Chinese New Year this week! Pardon us for some inactivity as we are stuffing ourselves full with lots of festive good food. Meanwhile I think it's a perfect time to share these photos of a 1930s Shanghai poster girl inspired look I did on myself.
As I admire the ladies in the posters, I could almost imagine myself in the lusty vibrant Shanghai of that era. The ladies looked largely similar, with a subtle glamorous air surrounding them. The main features of the look - high collared cheongsam, the classic finger waves, porcelain pale skin, thinly defined brows, heavily rouged cheeks and red lips. Did I nail the look?
Happy Chinese New Year to all! Gong xi fa cai!
