Bottom right radical is 'cloth'. Left/top radical is a  character only found in Chinese, combining 'food' (食) and 'person' (人), meaning 'feed (a person)'. In this character it acts phonetically to express 'rub'.  To 'rub with a cloth' means 'to clean', and by extension, 'to make prettier', or 'to decorate'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Person uses decorative cloth when eating.'
