We recommend a simple application of blush, mascara and lipstick. A little bit of make-up keeps the dancers’ faces from being “washed” out by the bright stage lights. Make-up should be worn for the performance only, not the dress rehearsals. We recommend that the make-up for the performance be applied at home.
