'Mulan makeup challenge' is going viral in China


Following the release of Disneys trailer for its live-action remake of Mulan, fans all over the world have begun recreating the image of the titular Chinese heroine with particular attention to her traditional beauty.

In China, the hype comes in the form of a now-viral makeup challenge, which has already attracted more than 300 million views.


The challenge, which uses the hashtags Mulan Imitation (##) and Mulan Imitation Contest (##), has netizens mimicking the characters betrothal makeup, which happened to be popular back in the Tang Dynasty (618-907 C.E.).

In a YouTube video, makeup vlogger Emma Zhou explains that the look is basically achieved using rice flour and pigments from strong-colored flowers.

The makeup, which aims to emphasize the roundness of the face, uses rice flour for a truly blank canvas and pigments for blush on the cheeks, tint on the lips and a floral decoration on the forehead.

Additionally, the look features a yellow aura on the forehead, also known as Buddhas makeup, as many practiced Buddhism at the time.
