25 Sep The Socializing make-up trend
As a social E-commerce platform, RED gathers a large number of youthful and highly educated beauty users, looking for the latest trends and tips and to share their own beauty experiences. But today, the socializing dimension has reached a new hight where make-up becomes a tool to meet and interact with other people either in the real life or through direct interactions online. Socializing makeup as a buzz trend nowadays is reflected in the following two main areas.

Rather than practicing their makeup skills alone, young girls are now preferring to share their photos on RED and seek advice directly from other users, whether they are professional beauty bloggers or amateur makeup enthusiasts who can provide valuable advice and insights through their comments, share their makeup experiences, and support each other to become a more beautiful version of themselves.

The #Makeup Relay Challenge (化妆接力挑战), has garnered an impressive 12.3 million views on the social media platform RED. Chinese young girls walk down the street and ask chic strangers to do their make-up and make them their beauticians. The whole process is not done in one step, but different people are invited to participate in a make-up relay, each one contributing for one make-up step.

This kind of challenge attracts a lot of passers-by to participate, and also harvests a high topic of conversation, and their make-up is not only highly accomplished, but also has unexpected rewards, and the social enthusiasm shown by interacting with strangers also attracts the attention of many young people with weaker social skills.
