NEW BEIJING OPERA PALETTES: 3 GRAPHIC LOOKS FOR YOUR MOST DRAMATIC HALLOWEEN YET
A pearl of Chinese art rich with dramatic splendor, this ancient craft combines virtuosic skill with decadent costume to ignite the imagination.
Strikingly beautiful and original, Beijing opera emphasizes beauty in motion. From historical narratives and folklore to avant-garde performances, its rich tapestry of song, dance, acting, and combat remains deeply admired today.
Inspired by its exquisite finery and powerful performance, The Beijing Opera Series is our ode to this ancestral art.
Inspired by Jing (净) roles and the classic opera Farewell My Concubine, Melodic Might represents Xiang Yu, the hardheaded warlord on the verge of defeat. Self-assertive, forceful, and obstinate, this iconic Jing role requires an extrovert's personality and a commanding presence.
As his robust voice carries through the air, his unmistakable swagger only serves to emphasize his oncoming downfall. Always deeply expressive, his painted face symbolizes his bravery and recklessness.
Melodic Might's colors are vibrant and vivid, a Jing role distilled into 9 pigment-rich shades. For the most dramatic and outstanding makeup, Melodic Might is the boost of colorful confidence we all need.
Inspired by feminine Dan (旦) roles, Charming Aria draws heavy influence from Concubine Yu, Xiang Yu's loyal wife. As she realizes the extent of their oncoming defeat, she begs to die with her love. When refused, she steals Xiang Yu's sword and commits suicide.
With a virtuosic mastery of voice, she sings in pure, high-pitched notes. Her small graceful movements are careful and precise, embodying the dignified grace of Dan. Powerful and deeply feminine, flushes of radiant pink, jet black liner, and a pure white visage are her signature look.
Like the ornate beauty of an opera headdress, Charming Aria's 9 versatile shades are suitable for soft days and sensual nights. Just like the multidimensional complexity of Dan roles, Charming Aria strikes a moving note every time.
