Dancers, even young ones, wear makeup on stage in order to make their faces and expressions visible to the audience. Makeup can emphasize facial features that would otherwise be washed out by stage lights.

Follow these simple steps to create a perfect, stage-ready face.

(Some dance instructors have special requirements for applying stage makeup, especially for their own recitals and performances, so check first.)
