Character Brief:

Cao Bao was a character in the Investiture of the Gods. Together with Xiao Shen, they were idle people in Mt. Wuyi. There is a funny anecdote about them. One day Zhao Gongming was running after an enemy and encountered them. It is said that Xiao Sheng seized Zhao Gongming’s weapons, but dramatically was killed by the weapons.

As recorded, Zhao Gongming shouted to them that: “Monster, you dare to take my weapons!” Then he took out his secret super tool called whip to fight against Xiao’s Luobao Jinqian, and finally killed Xiao. Cao was very angry and went downhills to join the team fighting against Shan. Unluckily, he was killed. After his death, Cao was appointed Nazhen Tianzun.

Introduction of Facial makeup:
Facial makeup, or Lian Pu, refers to facial designs for Jing and Chou roles. It originated from daily life experience, describing such changes of expression as white for fear, red for shyness, dark for suntan, and sallow for illness. Most facial designs attach great importance to the eyes.  The facial designs for the Jing roles are made by painting, powdering and coloring in the basic forms of Zheng Lian (keeping the basic face pattern), San Kuai Wa Lian (three-section face) and Sui Lian (fragmentary face). These types are widely used to represent generals, officials, heroes, gods and ghosts. The Chou actors can be recognized by the patch of white in various shapes painted around the eyes and nose. Sometimes these patches are outlined in black, hence the term Xiao Hua Lian (partly painted face). The Chou roles fall into the following two categories: Wen Chou and Wu Chou.

Features:
Facial makeup bears three main characteristics. Firstly, it is the unity and contradiction of beauty and ugliness. Secondly, it is closely related to the personality of the characters. Lastly, the patterns are stylized.

Beijing opera is one of the most popular drama widely welcomed and loved, no matter home and abroad. It is now acknowledged as a sign of Chinese traditional culture. The photos of facial mask can be found on large buildings, product packages, various porcelains and clothes. It has gone beyond the stage, from which we can see the deep influence of facial makeup. More and more foreigners have interest in it and begin to explore the secret of facial makeup.

I pretended to buy toys to spend time aimlessly and asked the customer center lots of questions, which are all answered in time satisfiable. I felt guilty and decided to buy a toy there to end up the farce. But after i handed out the order, they communicate with me to tell me the condition of my package. I am so thankful.
