Makeup For Performers at the ABDF
1 October 2017 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm
Makeup Skills to set the Stage.
True stage makeup is done with a little *more*.
More colour, more shading, bolder lines, larger than life and sometimes a little extra sparkle.
This is so that from a distance on stage, our features are still visible and the audience see your expressions and the emotion you are conveying while you perform.�
Just like dance, there are many ways to approach your makeup, and countless techniques to learn. �
Amanda is offering an introduction workshop, on makeup for performers, during the Adelaide belly dance festival that is essential knowledge for every dancer.
Hone your existing makeup skills and learn new tips and techniques to bring your face and your performance to life. Bring your make up, some essential basics and don’t forget your face!�
You’ll learn how to create the all important base of your makeup, from foundation, to adding dimension and colour back into the face. We’ll talk about different products you can use and what kind of tools you can use for your makeup application.
As the window to the soul, the eyes can truly bring a dancer’s story to life. You’ll also learn an enchanting eye look and how different techniques give different effects, by learning how to use colours and textures to add drama as well as lustre and sparkle to catch the eyes and imagination of your audience.
A professional Makeup Artist for over 6 years in the ﬁlm, photographic and bridal industries has given Amanda a wide range of knowledge and experience in many different environments and styles of makeup.
As well as TV commercials screened nationally and internationally, her photographic and editorial work has been published around the world.
Amanda has also been dancing and performing for over 10 years. Beginning her performance career with Red Belly Black in Melbourne, she later joined Bodhaia Tribal while living in England. �
She is a founding member of Melbourne based troupes Antaresia Tribal and Semra and regularly performs at local and interstate events doing mainly Tribal Fusion and some ATS.
Her years of performance experience on many different stages and in different environments have given her a unique insight into how dancers can use makeup for the best effects – not just on a stage with strong lighting but also in clubs, restaurants, and outdoor environments.
