Learn to apply make-up for performance
Total newbies welcome

Learn the secrets of stage-worthy make-up for belly dance. Perfect for belly dancers, burlesque dancers, cabaret singers and other performers, as well as lovers of glitter who just wanna dress up.

Make-up can do otherworldly things, from deepening your eyes to changing the shape of your face. It is the means to an expressive end. Your face must be as fancy as your costume--and your features must be enhanced in order to reach your audience.

Basic application techniques will be taught--so don't worry if you've never touched an eye pencil before.

Rosa will provide step-by-step demo and verbal instruction, and help each person one-on-one to find the right techniques for your own face and performance style.

Participants will learn to effectively apply eyeliner, use different shades of shadow to add depth & mystery to your eyes, contour your face, color your lips without "bleeding" and refine your performance face. You will also learn to apply false eyelashes!

This is a BYOM workshop--bring your own make-up. A list of supplies will be provided when you sign up.

"The workshop was fantastic. I really liked how we were given a handout on what she was going to teach so we could make our own notes in the margin. She also made sure that photos were taken at each critical step so we could be sure of being able to reproduce the look on our own once we left her studio. Beginners will really have a great base to work with and the more experienced can take their makeup application to the next level." — Sheryl B.
