This weekend has been so crazy because I have been preparing for my company’s production of a Midsummer Night’s Dream. It is so funny because I never imagined myself dancing professionally (on pointe no less) with a ballet company as one of my first gigs, however, ballet is the reason I fell in love with dance. More specifically, my “Barbie in the Nutcracker” VHS is what made me want to start taking dancing lessons when I first saw it at the ripe age of 6 years old!
I didn’t actually take dance until I was 10 (and my first year of dance was not ballet, unfortunately). But anyway, it is so funny how life presents these moments where everything comes full-circle. I am dancing as a demi-soloist, and dancing the roles as one of the lead fairy attendants to Titania, and a lead bridesmaid for the wedding in Act II. The company had a fundraiser performance for our full-length production this weekend, and I wanted to show you all my makeup and costuming I had for the fairy dance!
I used the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette to create this eye look, and the Ciate London Fierce Flicks liquid eyeliner pen. I LOVE how it turned out. My lips are Colourpop Lippie Stix in the color Lumiere.
I used M.F.E.O. and Pooter in the crease. Then I used Faint on the center of my lid, with Hustle blended toward the Outer V. I added the colors Buns and Chip to deepen the Outer V. Then I added Sissy (a pink with gold flecks) as a topper to the center of the lid, and lined my lower lash line with it. I added the color Beem to the inner corner!
I didn’t snap a good image of my eye makeup because the lighting in the venue was so yellow and dim. However, this is a closer look at it.
In the next set of pictures, I’ll show you more of my costume with the other lead fairy attendant. These images were from a performance two weeks ago (where I accidentally didn’t bring my eyeliner, but used the same colors). The lighting in the hallway was perfect for pictures.
And another one!
I am excited for this performance. It is the first time I will be dancing in pointe shoes in front of an audience in a professional ballet performance. It is coming up in June, and I am hoping to write another post in my bridesmaid costume and hair!
This summer is going to be filled with dance, movement, and progress, and I cannot believe it is all coming up so quickly. Also, the first half of 2018 is almost over – WHERE IS TIME GOING!?!
Let me know what you all think of my makeup and costume! I hope you like it as much as I do!
