To make your nose visible from the balcony, paint a white stripe straight down the middle and blend the edges.
Apply rouge (creme, not powder) at the hairline, especially if you have blond hair, to create a difference between face and hair color. Also, shadow with rouge under the jawline. "Without shadowing, you don't have a face onstage," Osato said.
Never use green or blue eye shadow. Slick with brown instead. Mauve and purple looks dull.
To refresh makeup once the sweat starts, apply powder and use a cotton ball to tap lightly with cold water.
Osato is available for instruction through Career Transition For Dancers, 212.764.0172.
