When I joined my first company I pretty much had no idea how to do stage makeup. Some people have access to make up classes depending on which ballet academy you go to, but for many of us, that just isn’t the case. I guess it didn’t help that I also, wasn’t so interested in makeup either, haha. I had never watched a tutorial video in my life. Looking back, maybe I should have… but what I did do, was observe my coworkers around me who knew what they were doing and understood that the makeup you wear is also a form of art.
That being said, I wanted to open the make-up room with a tutorial from a colleague of mine who always takes the stage, not only with fiery and exquisite dancing, but also with her gorgeous make-up and style. Her artistry is evident from the make up she wears to the roles she so beautifully executes.
This is basic stage make-up with Ana Gergely.
