How to Create Beautiful Ballerina mink lashes Using Dance Makeup

This is the most wonderful time of the year! (click the web find more details about makeup of eyes here )A magical time of brightly lit snow dusted trees and sugar plum fairies. This is a time to reconnect with our friends and loved ones, and to warm ourselves by a crackling fire. And it is, of course, time once again for the most loved holiday ballet - the Nutcracker!

A ballet is a story and the ballerina plays a part. In order to follow the story and connect to the character the audience needs to see the natural dimension of the dancer's mink lashes. Dance makeup for a ballerina should accentuate and enhance the natural shape of her eye. This will allow the audience to follow the ballerina's gaze. The audience needs to see if her mink lashes are open, closed, and where she is looking as she moves through the dance.

As you're preparing for your upcoming Holiday performances I would like to share with you my best tips on how to use dance makeup to create beautiful ballerina mink lashes. Ballerinas are known for being beautiful, and there is something especially stunning in the way dance makeup is used to intensify a ballerina's mink lashes. Eye makeup for ballet dancers can be intimidating at first, but by following a few simple steps you will be applying ballet mink lashes like a professional dance makeup artist in no time!

The first step to creating perfect ballet mink lashes is to understand the basics of contouring. Contouring is using a darker eye shadow to create dimension. There are three main types of eye contouring. Depending on the look you want to achieve you can use these tricks together or separately.


1) Starting at the lash line, blend the contour shadow up past the crease to the brow bone, allowing it to gradually fade along the way.

2) Apply contour shadow in a sideways "c" or "v" shape on the outer third portion of the eyelid.

3) Apply contour shadow in the crease.(If you would like to learn a little more about mink eyelash price you can visit our site at: [axstn] , mink eyelashes this product could possibly be the most appropriate one to work with.)

This classical ballet dance makeup look can be difficult to achieve (especially for those with small lid space), but just like with your dancing, practice makes perfect! There are some important dos and don'ts to consider when creating expressive ballet mink lashes. Make sure you follow these tips whenever doing makeup for dance.

The Dos:

1) DO use neutral/warm earth-toned eye shadow colors for stage performances. They are perfect under all colors of stage lighting and will accentuate the mink lashes and skin.

2) DO apply your dance makeup dark enough to be seen up to the first 8 - 12 rows (approximately).

3) DO use false mink lashes to enhance the shape of your mink lashes on stage!

The Don'ts:

1) DON'T use black liquid eyeliner under the mink lashes! Instead use an eye shadow with an angled makeup brush or, if you must, use an eye pencil.

2) DON'T forget to blend, blend,'re a ballerina not a punk rocker!

3) DON'T use black liner on the inside lower eyelid - this will make the mink lashes look smaller. Use a white highlighter pencil on the inside rim of the lower eyelid to brighten the mink lashes and make them look bigger.
