Performance Make-up
Professional Stage Makeup is an essential part of performing. Stage lighting
and the distance of the audience make the dancer appear washed out,
β€œflat” and expressionless. The purpose of stage makeup is to add color to
the skin and to exaggerate the features, making them clearly visible to the
audience. Proper application will ensure that the eyes and lips are clearly
visible to the audience fifty feet away. Stage makeup that could in any way
pass for regular, daily makeup is unacceptable for the stage.
All students will be required to supply their own make-up for
performances. Students must wear foundation, eyeliner, eye shadow,
blush, and lipstick colors should stay in the neutral family, including grays,
browns, and plums.

Preparation
Start with a clean face and the hair pulled back. Sponges, Q-tips, makeup
brushes, and tissues should be readily available. If you use a moisturizer,
apply it at least one half hour before you put on your makeup.
