Stage Makeup and Hair Tutorial
Please follow this easy how to do stage makeup YouTube tutorial for a guideline for doing your dancer’s makeup for the stage as well has how to do a sleek stage ready ponytail or in a bun (if this is your dancer’s requirement for their hair.) https://youtu.be/1LC2aIzpvLg
Suggested Lipstick color is a pinkish/red; Eyeshadow: cream and brown color duo; Light haired girls need some brown shadow to create eyebrows for the stage! Blush shade varies with skin tone; Mascara and Eyeliner needed. (Eyelashes are a great option but need to be trimmed.) TIP: Have young children lie down to be more relaxed in putting makeup on. Cue Tips are great for cleanup around eyes. A Brush does wonders in blending makeup!! (Not the one included in blush and shadow kits.)
Curled Ponytails (dirty hair curls better than clean) There are varied ways to choose from but check out these tutorials. Product makes a big difference. Once you’re done styling cup a hairnet underneath and loop up to the top and clamp in and then just before they perform, remove the hairnet. Or you can also purchase a pre-done curly ponytail and attach it to their ponytail or bun and not worry about curling hair and getting a long lasting style.

If your dancer’s hair is too short to put in a ponytail/bun then have them wear their hair styled and away from their face in a fashion that looks neat and best on them.
