SHOW MAKE UP

Step-by-Step Guide

Do not fear if you cannot do make up, there will be people on the day to do the make up for you.

Please just make sure you arrive early to allow time for this to be done!

My First Ballet Class

Baby Class

It is not compulsory for the My First Ballet Class to wear Show Make Up. 

However we do encourage a little as the bright, flashing lights can distort facial features making it harder to identify your child.

If you are happy for your child to wear make up please follow the Mini Make Up instructions.

If you only want your child to wear a little we suggest wearing a foundation that matches their skin tone.

For those with permission, each My First Ballet Class chaperone can put on a little red lipstick just before they go on stage.

Make Up Guide

Intro To, Mini  & Junior

1. The Essential Products

The following items are needed for show make up:

  • Liquid Foundation (to match the colour of skin - please make sure it is blended into hairline & under the chin)

  • Brown Eye Shadow – for young children I would suggest a medium brown that is not too dark

  • White/Cream Eye Shadow – needed to blend on top of the brown

  • Black Liquid Eyeliner – personally I prefer the Rimmel Liquid Eyeliner as I find the brush easier to control & to match along the eyelash, however there are liquid eyeliner pens that can also be used

  • White Liquid Eyeliner – this can be hard to come by, I bought mine from Amazon. I have one if people cannot source one but they last for years & are great to have in the show make up bag

  • Black Mascara - any kind

  • Pink Blusher - try to use a nice rosy colour to add plenty of colour to the cheek bones

  • Dark Red Lipstick - I personally find the Rimmel Alarm is the best kind of red show lipstick, it's dark & lasts well

  • Make Up Wipes - I personally love Simple Make Up wipes but any kind is fine

  • Cotton Buds - helps to wipe away any excess make up

All these items can be found in Superdrug/Boots/Online & are an essential use in a dancer’s life. They can be stored in a box & used for future exams or shows.

All make up needs to be brought with them to the show in a labelled make up bag incase a top up if needed during the show.

2. Foundation

Apply foundation to the skin - please blend into hairline & blend into neckline.

3. Eyeshadow

Using a brush - put the brown eyeshadow over the lid. Make it nice & rounded. 

Take the white eyeshadow & blend the top of the brown eye shadow (nearest the eyebrow) to create a smooth edge & white glow.

4. Eyeliner

4. Eyeliner

Starting with the black liquid eyeliner start in the middle of the eye & draw a line as close as you can to the eyelash. If you make a mistake use a cotton bud to remove or thicken up the line. Draw a flick near the outside of the eye. 

It is best to make sure you blend with the eyelash. Younger children do not need the line across the whole of the eyelash but if you manage to, this makes the best finished look.

Take the white eyeliner & draw a line underneath the black flick. Try to make it blend in with the black line & the edge of the eye.

5. Mascara/Blusher

Add mascara to the lashes.

Add pink blusher to the cheek bones.

6. Add Red Lip Stick

This is probably best left to the chaperones to put on as it can be messy & get on clothes.

Less is more.

Please place the red stick alongside their other make up incase they need any touch ups plus make up wipes & cotton buds in their box.
