It’s definitely recital season and I found a great makeup tutorial on YouTube. This is the same style of ballet stage makeup I have used in the past. The video does a really good job at showing the technique for a novice. Younger performers can also use the double-winged liner, it really opens up the eyes.
As well as she applies makeup in the video, the great thing about stage makeup is that it doesn’t have to be perfect. But practice does make it perfect!
My recommended makeup brand to use is Makeup Forever. It is designed for professional use and it has the best staying power. I even use the concealer for everyday use. It hides those dark circles under my eyes and on the hottest days it doesn’t wear off! Makeup Forever and many of the brands mentioned in the video can be found at Sephora.
You should check out her other tutorials. Most of them are in French but still very useful visually if you don’t speak it.
