Hair & Makeup For Competition Teams

All Competition Team Members will wear their hair & makeup the same.

Hair needs to be pulled up into a high sock bun.  The picture below is how I want it to look, I don't know why they call it a hunny bun.  And you don't need to use a sock they sale the sponge bun rollers at Sally's & Wal-Mart.  They also have blonde or brown ones so they will match your hair.

*Reminder Stage Makeup is different than everyday makeup, it needs to be more dramatic.  So their facial expressions stand out on stage.*

Apply foundation. For stage makeup, a full coverage foundation is needed.

Apply a plum (more purple than red) colored eye shadow. If you choose to, after doing the eye shadow you can use a light powder for the face.  (You want to put the eye shadow directly over the foundation so it sticks better.)

Apply eye liner.  This is a crucial part of stage makeup since eyes should pop from afar.

Apply false lashes and mascara. For young girls, you may need to cut lash strips so they properly fit the eye.  Allow lash glue to reach a tacky consistency for a few seconds and then apply to the upper lash line. Then add your mascara to lower lashes & even to the top to make them blend into your false lashes.

Apply blush.  Apply color to the apples of the cheeks and blend thoroughly. Blush should appear as a wash of color radiating from the cheeks. 

Apply lipstick.  We are using CoverGirl Outlast in Plum Berry.  Apply a hefty amount and let it dry, dry, dry then put on the clear shine.
I wish I could perfect this way of the donut bun, but it nver seems to work out. I will have to keep trying! :)
