How To: Stage Make-up

What you will require to get the dancers look:

  • Red Lipstick
  • Black Eyeliner
  • Pink Blush
  • Loose Powder (matching skin tone)
  • Liquid Foundation (slightly darker than skin tone)
  • Dark Brown eye shadow
  • White eye shadow
  • Fake eyelashes



  1. Apply your liquid foundation all over your face including eyelids and under the jaw blending towards the neck
  2. Apply your blush generously to your cheeks, sweeping up towards your temple
  3. Apply your loose powder to your face making sure to press it in to set your foundation and blush
  4. Apply your white eye shadow to the whole eyelid (eyelash line to under eyebrow)
  5. Apply your dark brown eye shadow to the crease of your eyelid swooping the outside up towards the outer eyebrow
  6. Apply your black eyeliner in a thin line swooping the outside line up towards the eyebrow creating a ‘wing’
  7. Apply your fake eyelashes (they might have to be trimmed to fit your eye shape or size)
  8. Curl eyelashes with the fake eyelashes using an eyelash curler
  9. Apply one coat of black mascara to eyelashes, powder with loose powder to thicken your lashes, apply another coat of mascara
  10. Apply your red lipstick to your lips, powder with loose powder to set lipstick, apply another layer of red lipstick and blot (close your lips over your pinky finger and pull your finger out. This will remove any lipstick that may transfer to your teeth)
