Dancers, even young ones, wear makeup on stage in order to make their faces and expressions visible to the audience. Makeup can emphasize facial features that would otherwise be washed out by stage lights.

Follow these simple steps to create a stage-ready face.

1) Foundation is used to even out the complexion and reduce shadows from stage lights. Always apply foundation to a clean face. Choose a shade very similar to the color of the face. Using a makeup sponge, apply an even coat of foundation to the entire face, including under the chin, onto the neck, around the ears and up to the hairline. Blend carefully to ensure an even application. Set the foundation with a small amount of powder.

2) Blush adds color as well as definition to the face. Choose a blush color similar to the natural color of the cheeks. Smile and apply blush to the apples of the cheeks, sweeping up and out toward the hairline.

3) Apply eye shadow over the entire eyelid. Pick a color family that will make your eyes stand out on stage, as stage lights tend to make the eyes appear smaller. The color will depend on the color of your eyes as well as your skin tone. Choose three complementary colors, applying the darkest shade near the eye, the medium shade above the eyelid crease, and the lightest shade under the eyebrow. Remember to slightly blend the colors together.

4) Lining the eyes with black eyeliner makes them really stand out. Use eyeliner on the top lid and bottom. To line the upper lid, apply a thin, straight line starting from the inner corner. To line the lower lid, start at the outer corner of the eye and draw a thin line under the lower lashes. Liner should start where the lashes begin and stop where they end on both eyelids.

5) Using black mascara, gently sweep two coats on upper and lower lashes.

6) Carefully apply a bright shade of red lipstick (or preferred color) to the upper and lower lips. Blot softly with a tissue.

7) Break a leg!

HAIR – How to make a proper bun:

What do I need?

• Hair brush
• Large, covered hair elastic
• Nylon hair net (matching hair color-available at most drug stores) • Hair pins and/or bobby pins
• Hair spray
• Hair gel

How do I make the bun?

1) Brush hair smooth and free of tangles.

2) Pull hair back neatly into a ponytail at the back of the head or higher, using a brush to avoid "lumps and bumps". A tidy ponytail with hair drawn snugly back is the key to making a goodbun. Placement of your ponytail determines placement of your bun.
Ballet buns should be either right above the neck (low), at middle of the head (mid- height) or at the crown of the head (high) depending on role.

3)  Secure ponytail tightly with hair elastic.

4)  Use hair spray to eliminate any "whisps" around the head, smoothing any remaining

bumps of hair on the head.

5) Twist the ponytail as you gradually wrap it around the hair elastic, creating a tight, coiled circle, inserting hairpins as you wrap. Be sure that your hair pins contain hair from both the head and the ponytail. This will hold your bun close to your head. Be sure to use plenty of hair pins (12-16 on average).

6) The idea is to have your bun tightly coiled around your elastic and secured to your head.

7) Once you have created your bun, wrap your hair net around it as many times as it will allow for a snug fit.

8) Hold the hair net in place with a few extra bobby pins, and hair spray or gel any "whisps" that are remaining.

Short Hair

1) Short hair must be secured with a headband or bobby pins 2) No hair may be hanging in the face
