Wow. Iv'e always loved Chinese Opera make-up. It just looks so dramatic, and....erm....edible. lol. I just love the way it's blended. It just looks so creamy and makes me want to eat a peach.

Love Kabuki too :)

Would also love to see you so inspired that you copy the look and post photeys ;)

I really love this makeup as well. I would love to be able to copy that myself, but unless there is a cure for RP my days of applying makeup are over. Maybe I will persuade someone to slap in on for me one of these days, who knows.

However here’s a photograph from my able bodied days. This is the closest I got I think. Somewhat annoying, but the days when I did the makeup the best were never photographed!

What beautiful pictures! I also meant to thank you for the makeup gallery link. I think I looked at that once before, but I missed some that time so a refresher was nice.

They are indeed. I do hope that we get the opportunity to see Chinese opera in London at some stage.

It's good to hear from you again.

I'm fine. I'm looking forward to my mum and sister no 1 coming down to visit next month.
