As a result, ``point, line, and plane``, the key of formative elements, helped fashion show makeup express a variety of objet illusion by aesthetic technique and visual language and reinforced a design sense of makeup by emotional communication as well as visual- perceptual communication. As the element of point was possible to express feelings according to the methods of use. The element of line varied with thickness, length, and density and showed various expression.
