Using things like gelatin, beeswax, and eggs, the Chinese stained their nails. In different periods, the royals wore either gold and silver or black and red. Lower castes couldn’t use bright colors. Using acupuncture, the Chinese caused themselves to look more youthful since it helps the blood flow. All adult Han Chinese men had to shave the front of their heads and comb the remaining hair into a queue, basically braiding the rest of the hair into a long ponytail. The two primary female hairstyles were a low tight bun or a braided updo, with hairsticks.
In ancient China, women were made to wear shoes only 3-4 inches long. This was done by breaking the arch and folding the foot. The process was undertaken between 4 and 7 years of age and in the winter when the feet were numb from cold. Shoes were very decorative.

Their practices are most commonly seen in geisha and kabuki. First, the face is cleaned. Then, Abura oil is applied. Taihaku wax comes next, primarily used to block out the eyebrows. Then, the white color, known as Oshiroi (honorable white), is applied to the face. Oshiroi was made of white rice powder and minerals like zinc and titanium.
In geisha makeup, the Oshiroi was applied just below the hairline in very sharp outlines, as well as on the ears and around the neck, forming a giant 'W'. The rest of the make- up is applied based on the age and experience of the geisha. With kabuki makeup, no skin should be visible, and the other colors on the face are for various roles. Deep red on a white face was for anger or rage mixed with cruelty, commonly representing forceful characters with good qualities. Pink was for roles like the charming or amorous fox. Indigo was for villains and ghosts. Brown was for villains among court nobles and by gods. Purple, light green, and gold were rarely used and for very specific characters, like the lion in Shakkyo and the golden tiger in Ryuuko.
