Character Brief:

Guan Yu, style name Yun Chang, was born in Xie, Hedong, which is in present-day Yuncheng, Shanxi. He was a renowned general in the late Han Dynasty. He served for Liu Bei from the very beginning of uprising and was one of Liu’s most trustworthy followers. In the long historical novel the Romance of Three Kingdoms, his military achievements are significant. And he is also called the leader of Five Tiger General. His image was deified by posterity and was honored as Guan Gong by people. He was reserved as “Saintly Emperor Guan” in Qing Dynasty, equal to Confucius. Besides, in ancient China, there was a place also called Guan Yu, with the location unknown.


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.
