oh yeah, here you go, everything about her — the gorgeous indigo and white striped vest, the white shirt and tasseled earrings (like Chinese ‘ghost’ hair), the eyebrows, liner, and lipstick all precise — like she’s following a particular etiquette or giving a specific, coded message…but it’s all from another planet. Literally fantastic. Love it.
“Trying to hard” just means being brave enough to take your effort to its completion. The sad thing is that most people don’t try hard enough. I am nearly sure she is a model in a show. It would be doubly cool if she just decided to do it.
Geisha, kabuki? …well, not exactly, I guess.
Probably this type of make-up should trace back to the court nobles (can you see the short and round-shaped eyebrows? that’s it).
Interestingly, it wasn’t only for women. Men in the court would also enjoy this make-up.
…Now, you see something androgynous about her, don’ t you :)
