Stage Makeup Kit
Your Stage Make-up Kit For Dance
“Caboodle” is the popular term that dancers use to describe their make-up kit. Here are the basics and brand of great products that should be included in your caboodle.
|Foundation: for stage, we highly recommend a “full coverage” foundation. M.A.C. makes an excellent one, available in all shades. This foundation is very thick compared to regular foundations.
It is preferable to use this type because it looks better under bright lights and stays on longer. Try to match the shade as close as possible to natural skin tone.

|Loose Powder: Powder is great for sealing the make-up and to freshen up throughout the day. Any brand will do.||Exclusive By MAC Select Sheer Loose Powder # NC40 8g/0.28oz|
|Loose Powder 2: An alternative to the powder above.||MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation NW20|
|For your eyes, we recommend:|
|Shadow: M.A.C. White pigment powder for a base (or eye shadow in “Gesso” or “Vanilla”)
M.A.C. “Espresso” or “Cork” for framing the eye.

False Eyelashes: “Ardell” eyelashes are great and available at Walmart and Zeller’s stores. Shoppers Drug Mart carries “Quo” brand. Some eyelashes come with a tube of glue, otherwise purchase glue tube separately. (M.A.C. also carries a line of lashes).

|Eyebrow Pencil: To darken the brows, any brand will do. Colour should closely match the brow colour.|
|Eyeliner: L’Oreal Superliner is great and quick drying, or M.A.C. liquid cake liner or liner that comes in a small pot or tube with a brush called “boot black”. Colour should be black.|
|Mascara: Black – brand of your choice. Apply to both upper and lower lashes once false eyelashes are applied.|
|Blush: M.A.C. “Desert Rose” for light, light-medium and medium skin tones. M.A.C. “Coppertone” for medium-dark and darker skin tones.|
|Lipstick: M.A.C. lipstick is most popular and stays on quite well. “M.A.C Red”, “M.A.C. Girl About Town” (more of a pink colour) and “M.A.C. Retro” are all excellent choices.|
|Lipliner: M.A.C. “Cranapple” and M.A.C. “Brick” are both liners that can be used with both lipstick colours. Line the lips before applying lipstick for a professional, polished look.|
|Make-up Removal Wipes: Any Drugstore brand, handy to have on hand.|
