When performing on stage, it’s helpful to wear makeup to prevent the performer’s skin from reflecting back the set lighting. Makeup can also help emphasize facial features and expressions, and improve visibility to audiences further away.
Please follow these simple steps to help your child create a perfect, stage-ready face:
- Pink or Rose
- Apply blush to the apples of the cheeks
- Maroon colored
- Apply to the upper and lower lips
- Light shade similar to skin color
Eye Shadow (optional)
- Complementary light colors
- Apply a thin straight line to the upper lid
- Gently sweep two coats on upper lashes
