Spring Concert Prep: Make-Up
Wearing dance recital make-up is a unique milestone in a dancer’s life! It can be a fun adventure or can seem daunting if it’s a parent’s first time to apply make up on their child.
Keep in mind that the goal of make-up for the recital is to ensure that your dancer’s features are visible from the stage. Bright stage lights wash out features, and when make-up is applied in the correct colors, it highlights the eyes and smile. (Remember to leave the shimmer and glitter at the store!)
Finding colors and kid-friendly formulations that are also pocketbook friendly can be a challenge. We’ve pulled together a list of great shades to look at for your dancer that won’t break the budget! These products may be purchased at stores like Wal-Mart, Target, Ulta, Amazon, and etc.
New this season: you can sign up for SDC’s make-up and hair workshop here. It’s FREE to attend!
