CAROLINA DANCE FOUNDATION
PERFORMANCE COMPANY MAKEUP
We have compiled a list of items you will need to include in your stage makeup kit this season. We have chosen colors and items that we think are affordable and attractive. We are attempting to streamline the look of all company genres and levels so we are suggesting a more neutral palette. If you are not able to find the exact matches for all of these products, please just find the closest alternative. Most items are readily available at Walgreens, Target or other local area drugstores.
These brands are by no means the only ones allowed. If you have a wide variety of makeup at home you can use, or would prefer to purchase higher quality brands, please feel free to do so! We just ask that you stick to the color families mentioned in the videos below and on the list so that the look is consistent.
If you plan to remain in company for several years, we suggest investing in good quality brushes which will not only last well, but also make makeup application much easier.
If possible, we recommend using higher quality eye shadow because the pigmentation is much stronger, application is easier, and it stays on better.
