Great post! I had no idea what color eye shadow I should use, but this helped a lot.

OK, as someone who has worked extensively on the stage, I applaud your efforts here. My only rebuttals are this:

1. Never ever ever share makeup, especially among a large group. Bacteria, germs, ick!

2. Eye shadow should not match the dress. Eye shadow should compliment the eyes. For ex: a blue eyed girl wearing a blue dress should NEVER wear blue eyeshadow (actually, no one should ever wear blue eyeshadow on stage!). Think opposites: Blue eyes: brown and pink shadows, brown eyes: green and bronze shadows, green eyes: purple and plum shadows. Always mix your accent colors with a great neutral.

3. Bronzer should be used sparingly on those areas where the sun naturally hits the face. It can also be used to create cheekbones. Be careful on stage with putting blush directly on the apples of the cheeks - sometimes it can get heavyhanded.

4. A natural color lipstick is usually best. Very few people can pull off red lipstick on stage, and is best left to Sr. Ladies with very dark hair and a dark complexion. Use a long-wearing lipstick the color of your natural lips or one shade deeper and top it off with a gloss.

5. Makeup for feisanna is different than makeup for Majors. Feis makeup should be slightly heavy street makeup, with an emphasis on cheeks and lips. For major competitions, go all out!
You can have fun with your makeup! During Oireachtas, NANS, Worlds, etc, bring out the glitter, just use it carefully. Pageant makeup is not too much on a large stage.

My DD is 12 and in PreLim. She has very light skin. We just use bronzer and blush on her face (in addition to eyes and lips). She is young enough that she is not dealing with uneven skin tone yet so all the concealer and foundation is not necessary for her.

I really LOVE this post and am glad it was made a sticky! I've always had some problem with the placement of make-up, and I'm just more of a visual learner in general, so I checked on YouTube and found a FANTASTIC make-up artist! She has so many different looks (dramatic, costume, subtle, etc.) and I found a great purple look to go for dance. Her name on YouTube is MissChievous. Here's her link to her page: www.youtube.com . . . Maybe for some people that are curious about how to apply it-this will be really helpful. She also has videos on how to apply the basics like foundation and blush!

To get the really dark eyes you need to use a liquid or cream eyeliner, not a pencil. For my Feis makeup I do a dark smoky eye with grey and charcoal eye shadow. Then I do a think liner using a cream liner (it comes in a little jar and you use a small brush to apply it) - bringing it out a bit at the ends for a cat-eye effect. I add a bit of sparkle with a silver glitter liner (just above the black liner). Then I finish it off with a black mascara.

Does anyone have tips on how to apply foundation thickly?

I have good-quality foundation, but once I've been wearing it for a while it doesn't look like I'm wearing make up at all. Also, my face gets really red when I dance and I have yet to find a way to effectively keep my redness under control. It's kind of embarrassing, because even though I'm in pretty good shape I always look like I'm really out of breath because my face turns bright red!

I've heard that applying foundation with a brush (right now I'm using foam make-up sponges) can help it go on thicker, but when I do that it always seems to have lines from the brush, and it doesn't look even at all.

I have the same problem with eye make-up...I apply eyeliner and mascara but I never look like I'm wearing any! I think part of the problem is that I don't use cream eyeliner, but when I try to apply black cream eyeliner it looks way too harsh. My eyelashes are light brown and my eyes are blue. I've tried brown eyeliner, but it looks kind of weird and doesn't provide much definition.


Any tips?

i know they sell "Physcian's Formula" foundation with a greenish undertone (very slight, unnoticiable) to counteract a reddened skin tone. Maybe try that?
