Make-up time at the Wayang   1 comment


Make-up time at the Wayang

Make-up is an integral part of the Wayang or Chinese Street Opera. This is also the favourite composition of most Wayang photographers like myself but I am too modest to disturb these actors and actresses but many of them did not mind at all. Sometimes it was extremely to identify the face behind the face of the character played at the Wayang.

From Wikipedia:-

Cosmetics, also known as makeup or make-up, are care substances used to enhance the appearance or odor of the human body. They are generally mixtures of chemical compounds, some being derived from natural sources (such as coconut oil) and many being synthetics.

In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates cosmetics, defines cosmetics as “intended to be applied to the human body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance without affecting the body’s structure or functions.” This broad definition includes any material intended for use as a component of a cosmetic product. The FDA specifically excludes soap from this category.
