What makeup do you put on in concerts? There are only two boys at my school (myself and another boy) and we both put on the same sort of makeup but I'm just wondering if this is right. Foundation, eye liner and lipstick. Is that all I need? Is that too much?

Depends on the lights in the place where you're dancing. In most school theaters, the stage is lit more like a speaker's platform, and you don't need a lot of makeup for features to be apparent. Also, many auditoriums aren't that large, but if you're dancing in some huge barn, you may need a lot of makeup just so that your face shows from the stage. At any rate, you'll almost certainly need a little highlight on your cheekbones to keep your face from appearing flat.

That's a good general practice anyway, Dick, and holds all through every sort of makeup.
