WHAT YOU NEED
White Powder Makeup*
Black Powder Makeup*
Makeup applicators (eg wedges, brushes, etc)
Blush (any pink or red shade)

*The white and black powder makeup are the only two things you may not already have. Everything else is standard in a dancer’s stage makeup kit.
STEP ONE - White Powder
Using a makeup wedge (or something similar), apply white powder all over face and neck.
STEP TWO - Black Powder
Using a makeup wedge or brush, apply black powder to the following places:
Eyes: All around the eye going all the way up to the eyebrow.
**The eyes should be the place you apply the most black powder. The rest should be a little lighter.**
Cheeks: Should be applied UNDER the cheekbones, starting at the cheekbone and brushing back toward the ear.
Temples: Brush a small amount just on the temple area in a circular motion
Nose: Brush a small amount on the sides of the nose
Jaw & Neck: Brush a small amount just UNDER the jaw bone and down the soft parts of the front of the neck.
STEP THREE - Blush
Using a blush brush, apply pink or red blush to the area on the cheeks just over where you put the black makeup. You want a nice blended look of mostly black with a pinkish hue to it.
STEP FOUR - Finish Eyes
Apply black eyeliner and mascara to top and bottom of the eye as you normally would with regular stage makeup.
STEP FIVE - Finish Face
Take your white powder and go over the parts of your face where the white should be especially highlighted: 1) The space between the eyes and the cheeks, 2) the front of your nose, 3) the forehead, and 4) on top of the jawline. This will help pull out a better contrast between the white and the black makeup on stage.
STEP SIX - Finish Lips
Use your black eyeliner pencil and apply to lips like you would a lip liner. Stay within the natural line your lips make. Using your finger, blend the black into the center of your lips. The darkest part should still be the outline. Then, apply red lipstick as you normally would for the stage and rub lips together to get the colors to blend.
Finished! If you practice, you can complete this look in about 10 minutes. Be sure to practice putting it on, and email us if you have any questions! GottaDanceNJ@gmail.com
