about this video:

similar to applying makeup for dance and performances, many people think that pageant makeup needs to be a contrast of dark makeup combined with bright makeup (heavy on the blush with bright blue eyeshadow). the thought process is that this type of application will help the model to be “seen” on stage.

this is not the case. in this video, robert will show you how to define, accentuate, and bring out the model’s features in a way that is perfect for pageants…and will not take attention away from what the model is doing on stage.
