S2S Stage Makeup Method: Step 1 – Face

Most common questions that I get regarding foundation for stage makeup:

Do I really need to wear foundation?
The answer is a big YES!  Using a good foundation not only makes your makeup last longer, it also protects your skin.  We also want a fresh, clear, clean canvas to apply our stage makeup look to.  A good foundation does this.

What kind of foundation should I use for stage?
I recommend a full coverage (avoid sheer or medium coverage), water-proof/water-resistant, hypo-allergenic, non-comedogenic (non-clogging to the pores) stick foundation.

How do I choose the right color foundation for stage?

How do I apply my stage foundation?
Apply with a triangle makeup sponge…after you have cleaned and moisturized your face!

How do I remove my makeup?
I love Pond’s Makeup Remover Wipes with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. The cleanser doesn’t need water to remove makeup. You apply the cleanser to your face in circular motions and then remove it with the makeup wipes. Easy to keep both of these items in your makeup kit so you can quickly and efficiently remove your performance makeup once your numbers are over.
