He was on yesterday’s list of the first batch of special talent to be given hukou, or permanent residency, in Shanghai this year.

For those seeking to settle in Shanghai, a hukouis necessary as it provides you convenience and benefits in areas such as house purchase, pensions and children’s education.

Born in 1992 inYueyang, central China’s Hunan Province, Li began work as a beauty consultant for L’Oreal after graduating from college majoring in art design. His career took off in 2016 when he was signed as alivestreamer on Alibaba’se-commerce platform Taobao selling beauty products. By 2019, he had nearly 50 million followers on major social media platforms.

He holds the Guinness world record for trying the most lipsticks within 30 seconds and even outsold Jack Ma, the co-founder of Alibaba Group, in lipsticks during the 2018 Double 11 shopping festival organized by Ma. In 2019, he was on Forbes China’s “list of elites under 30.” Li holds 99 percent of the shares in ShanghaiQishengManagement and Consulting Co, which was founded in June 2019 inChongming.
