According to Euromonitor International’s estimates, retail sales in China’s male skincare and cosmetics products market will grow at an average annual rate of 13.5% during 2016-2019, much higher than the global average of 5.8%, to top RMB1.9 billion in 2019. With the increasing number of male consumers, the growth potential of the mainland skincare and cosmetics products market should not be underestimated.
Makeup start from a long time ago,so the concept also for men,is hardly new.But for generations,makeup has been seen as a "girls-only" enterprise,so now we need to talk about that makeup is not just the right for the women,men also can make up.
Although nowadays,more and more people accept the phonomenon of men make up,if you hear that one male celebrity,you can accept,if you see a man make up in the street,we believe that most poeple will think he is “ladyboy”.Why?Because people think,the reason of male celebrity make up is it’s their career needs,so actually,still have most poeplt don’t think men can make up.
Actually,For millennia, stretching from 4000 BC through the 18th century, men traditionally used makeup in myriad ways. It wasn't until the mid-1800s that makeup was relegated to one end of the gender spectrum.And in China,men begin make up early.
Like the son of Cao Cao--Cao Zhi,is aslo a person who like beauty,very like to apply the powder to his face,once a man named Dan Chun suddenly came to visit,and he happened to be taking a shower,unexpectely he still want to apply the powder to his face after shower,to let the guest to wait in the lobby for more than an hour.
During the Southern and Northern Dynasties,men like to incense their clothes,to the Tang Dynasty,men even like some skin care products,and lipstick is aslo popular in Tang Dynasty.The emperor even issued lipstick to reward officials.During Song Dynasty,The Flower Headwear is popular,and is a symbol of high society.This is also the origin of the “Tanhua Lang”.
Before the Qing Dynasty,The phenomenon of men make up is common in during life,but after Qing Dynasty,men to make up seems special,and since the Qing Dynasty was the last dynasty in ancient China,so the concept is deeply rooted in the minds of many people.Till now,still have many people think men is not allowed make up.
But with the development of the times,we believe that people will gradually accept this view,ordinary men can make up like a male celebrity,and people will don’t think he’s “ladyboy”.
