Sparkle and Shine: Elevating Dance Makeup with Glitter Girl and Mad Ally

In the world of dance, every movement tells a story, every step speaks volumes, and every performance is a masterpiece in motion. Just as dancers pour their passion into every routine, their makeup serves as an essential tool for expressing their artistry on stage.

At relevé dance collective, we understand the importance of makeup that not only withstands the intensity of performances but also dazzles under the spotlight. Introducing our exclusive line of dance makeup: Glitter Girl Dreamy Dance Palette, Glitter Girl Long Stay Liquid Lipstick, Mad Ally Glitter Spray, and Mad Ally Glitter and Sparkle products. Let's delve into the captivating world of dance makeup and why it's a little more dramatic and bold than regular makeup.

The Essence of Dance Makeup: Dance makeup is more than just a cosmetic enhancement; it's a transformative experience that amplifies the performer's presence on stage. Unlike everyday makeup, dance makeup needs to withstand hours of intense movement, bright stage lights, and close scrutiny from the audience. Thus, it requires formulations that are highly pigmented, long-lasting, and resistant to sweat and tears. Moreover, dance makeup serves as a visual tool for conveying emotion, character, and storytelling from the furthest seats in the house. It's about creating an aura of mystique, enhancing facial features for better visibility, and ensuring that every expression is accentuated, even from a distance.

A Glimpse into History: The roots of stage makeup trace back to ancient civilisations, where performers used natural pigments and dyes to adorn their faces for theatrical productions and rituals. However, it wasn't until the 20th century that stage makeup evolved into a sophisticated art form, thanks to the pioneering efforts of makeup artists like Max Factor and Kevyn Aucoin. These visionaries revolutionised the industry by introducing waterproof formulations, bold color palettes, and techniques to contour and highlight facial features for maximum impact on stage. Today, stage makeup continues to evolve with advancements in cosmetic technology, catering to the diverse needs of performers across different genres, from ballet to Broadway.

Tips for Applying Makeup to Children: When it comes to applying makeup to children for dance performances, it's essential to prioritise safety, comfort, and age-appropriateness. Here are some helpful tips:

  1. Choose Gentle Formulations: Select makeup products specifically formulated for sensitive skin, free from harsh chemicals and irritants. Look for hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic options that are gentle enough for daily wear.

  2. Practice Proper Hygiene: Ensure that makeup brushes and applicators are clean and sanitized before use to prevent bacterial contamination and skin irritation. Encourage children to wash their face thoroughly after performances to remove makeup residue and maintain healthy skin. Don't forget to remove stage make up before bedtime Try our natural make up remover by Mad Ally. The Mad Ally Make Up Remover is the easiest way to save money and cut back on waste. Just by adding water, this reusable make up remover cloth erases waterproof mascara, eyeliner, foundation and gently cleanses your skin of dirt and impurities.

  3. Involve Them in the Process: Make applying makeup a fun and collaborative experience by allowing children to choose their colors and experiment with different looks. Empower them to express their creativity while emphasizing the importance of moderation and subtlety.

  4. Emphasize Natural Beauty: Above all, remind children that makeup is meant to enhance their natural features and boost their confidence, rather than masking their identity or conforming to unrealistic standards of beauty. Encourage self-expression and celebrate their uniqueness both on and off the stage.

  5. Master Your Winged Eyeliner: MAC Cosmetics Senior Artist Kiekie Stanners shows us how to create the perfect winged-out eyeliner look with RNZB Dancer Olivia Moore, in their first of the series of dancer makeup tutorials.
