Make-up lets Peng Liyuan down at London banquet

Even presidents’ wives have bad make-up days.

China’s first lady, Peng Liyuan, suffered an unfortunate make-up mishap as she arrived at the Lord Mayor’s banquet Wednesday night, the Mail Online reported.

When Peng and her husband, President Xi Jinping, arrived at the lavish banquet held in Xi’s honour at the Guildhall in London’s financial district, she appeared to have white powder on her forehead and nose.

It’s an unfortunate look that many celebrities have fallen victim to, including Angelina Jolie, Kate Winslet and Drew Barrymore, the report said.

It said the culprit is believed to be loose silica powder, which can create a flawless look in person but, when hit by a camera flash, it bounces enough light to show up in photographs.

The event, hosted by London’s Lord Mayor, Alderman Alan Yarrow, was attended by guests including Prince Andrew.
