Stage makeup for kids might be a little challenging. Make sure their makeup isn't too heavy or too light so that it washes them out in the spotlight or makes them look too old. It's important to strike a balance, and we have some suggestions for doing so.

You want to ensure that your child looks their best, but you also don't want them to look too made-up. In this blog post, we will discuss how to apply stage makeup to enhance your dancer's features!

Subtle and stunning dance makeup

But, what is stage makeup for dancers and why do children need it?

There are many different types of stage dance performances that require children to wear makeup. It could be ballet makeup, recital, gymnastics or even stage production. In most cases, the stage makeup is meant to help the child's features stand out so that they can be seen from far away. It also helps to create uniformity among the performers and makes them look more polished and professional.

This can be a fun and creative way for them to express themselves. It is also a great way to get them involved in the performance and help them feel like they are part of the show. The dancer's makeup is an essential part of their performance. They need to make sure they are seen and heard, even when the stage lights go up!

Dancers wear makeup for a variety of reasons. For example, when they need to make sure that their dark markings stand out against the bright lights of an onstage audience. It can help to set the tone and mood of the dance, can even be used to tell a story, can also be used to express themselves and connect with their audience.

Use a natural foundation to prep the face first

Always start makeup for kids with a natural foundation to prep the face. BB creams and tinted moisturizers are perfect for prepping your tween face. They provide a light layer of coverage that evens out the skin tone and hides minor blemishes. In addition to containing SPF, BB creams and tinted moisturisers are normally designed for the sensitive skin of tweens and teens.

This process will help to even out the skin tone and give a healthy, natural glow to your little one. You want your child to look like themselves, just with a little coverage, isn't it?

If your child had any dark circles under the eyes, you can use a light concealer to brighten up the eyes. Be sure to blend it in well so there are no harsh lines.

Once you have their base sorted, it’s time to start thinking about eyes, cheeks, and lips.

Apply a naturally shaded eyeshadow on the lids

Now that you have prepped the eyes, it's time to move on to eyeshadow! For a natural look, using the Twinxie Girl eyeshadow brush, apply the Twinxie Girl light brown eyeshadow, Moonstone Magic, all over the eyelids. To add some depth and dimension, apply the darker shade, Twinxie Girl natural eyeshadow Midnight Sun, in the crease of the eye. Then use a brush to sweep it across your lower lid. Finally, use a clean brush to blend the edges of the shadow for a soft, seamless finish. Make sure to blend well so there are no harsh lines.

For the eyes, we like to stick to light colours and shimmery finishes. Excited to try out those new eye shadows? Here's a pro tip: use the stunning and versatile Twinxie Girl light, Moonstone Magic, and darker, Midnight Sun, eyeshadow colours for a healthy and natural look. This also makes a beautiful regular look for any special occasion.

Finish off the eye makeup with eyeliner and a coat of mascara and I bet she is already looking amazing and very excited to show off her look!

Dab a blush on the apples of the cheeks

Before you reach for that rosy blush, let's consider if it's the right shade for your beautiful princess. The last thing you want is a colour that's too dark or light for her complexion. A good rule of thumb is to choose a hue that's two shades darker than her natural skin tone.

After selecting the right shade for the blush, using a makeup brush apply it to the apples of her cheeks for a healthy, rosy glow. Swirl the brush in a circular motion and enjoy the beautiful flush of colour and the beautiful smile of your little dancer.

Oh, and did you know that you can use Twinxie Girl eyeshadow as a blush? Yes, it's true! Just dip your brush into the eyeshadow and apply it to the cheekbones for a healthy, flushed, and radiant look using all-natural products.

There's no need to buy separate products when you can use Twinxie Girl eyeshadow to achieve two different looks. Now you know! And Twinxie Girl Aurora Glimmer and Cherry Blossom natural eyeshadows are very good picks for a rosy blush effect.

Finish with a lip gloss and she is all set to go

To complete the dance look, add lipstick for colour and add the Twinxie Girl Northern Light lip gloss shade. Northern Light is one of our absolute favourite shades for performances (although, y’know, you can wear it whenever!) It’s a fab bubble-gum pink gloss that’s just deep enough to see on-stage without being too in-your-face off-stage. Swipe on the lips using the in-built applicator for a nourishing, hydrating sheen. Then she is all set and ready to go to take on the world.

Use this opportunity to teach your child about the makeup removal routine

This is the perfect opportunity to teach your little one about the importance of a good skincare routine. Help them remove their makeup gently, using a cotton ball and a natural remover. If you don't have any remover on hand, you can use baby oil or olive oil to remove the stains from your child's face. Afterwards, follow up with their regular skincare routine to ensure that their skin stays healthy and hydrated.

Makeup remover is an important part of any beauty routine. It removes all traces of makeup, dirt, and oil from the face, leaving the skin clean and healthy. If they don't remove it, they can clog their pores and cause skin problems.

So there you have it, makeup for young dancers. A little bit of shimmer can go a long way in making your dancer look their best on stage. While we don’t recommend wearing makeup all the time, it is nice to have a few go-to tricks up your sleeve for special occasions. And, as always, be sure to teach your children about proper makeup removal techniques so they can keep their skin healthy and happy!
