|1. For ballet or modern dance,
use a little more foundation than in the basic makeup, but in the same color. On Caucasian
skins a soft, pale gray eye shadow gives a good effect without looking bright and
over-colored. Danker skins look good with a little lilac shadow. To keep it from being
rubbed off, use cream eye shadow and powder it well. On a large stage, add a little
shimmer to enlarge the eyes.
|2. For dancing the eyes need
more emphasis. Draw a top eye line as well as a bottom one with cake or liquid eyeliner,
making sure the color matches the hair. Draw a fine line along the lash roots and extend
it at the outer corner of the eye without letting it turn up. Mascara the lashes and
define the eyebrows.
|3. The blusher position for
dance shows off the cheekbones, using a paler pink or peach. Very small girls should have
their rouge I the natural position. The lipstick should give clear definition to the lips,
but only use red on a really big stage, or it looks precocious on young girls. This
picture also gives a good view of the eye makeup.
