A Lesson in Stage Make Up

 Many moons ago, I was active with my high school drama group.  Sometimes onstage, sometimes backstage.  I always loved all the vibrant makeup and costume options!  Hmmm...  I wonder where those photos from long ago might be hiding?  ;-)
 Recently, Twisted Flight Fitness, a local dance studio / fitness center, offered an amazing class in stage make up!  We have plenty of time to practice our new skills for Halloween!  I'm sharing the creativity of the awesome group!  (Please ignore the wild hair.  We were focused on our make up!)


You can see the theme was half glamour and half ghoul!  HOW FUN!

We were asked to bring our regular make up kits along with a small Halloween palette.  I found my palette at a local retail store for $6 and some change.

We were then taken, step by step, through the process of creating each look!

On one side we are all smokey-eye and red lipstick gorgeous,

and on the other side, it looks like we've had a really bad day!  ;-)  YIKES!  ;-)

Even though the participants in my class were adults, you can just imagine all the giggling and silly jokes!  We had such a good time!

 I am so glad to have spent the afternoon "playing make-up" with this fun group!


 Hopefully, it will be offered again!

Do we look scary?  ;-)

 Do you like being creative with make up?

  1. Wow---that's kinda crazy, but I love it!!

  2. Oh boy, you sure look scary! And all set for Halloween!

  3. Whoa!
    While it looks like y'all had fun... (love the smile photo vs. grim photo)
    It's not my thing. I'm not even much for glamour make up!
    I wear base and mascara... hmmm.
    come to think of it, I might look a bit ghoulish already!
    Well, it was interesting see how each of you turned out so different!

  4. Your makeup looks amazing Marci! Wild hair and all! Could be great for a witch! I bet everyone had lots of fun with this class!

  5. wow, those looks are great, well done :)

  6. Wow, this is pretty awesome looking and so much fun. Thank you for sharing at Dishing it and Digging it link party. We love having you and hope you will link up again this coming Sunday. Have a great week.

  7. OK, that's a class I never would think of taking but how fun!!

  8. I wonder if there's any place around me that would do a class like this because I'd be all over it! You all look great :) Thanks for sharing with us at Funtastic Friday!

  9. Wow, that is really something! Any tips for budding make up artists?

  10. Wow, looks like fun and perfect timing for Halloween. Thanks for sharing on Sunday's Best.
