Here at Frends Beauty, we love stage makeup. We understand that life doesn't present a lot of opportunities to wear it for everyday, but if you're going to be attending a big costume party or regularly perform in plays and on stage, we invite you to get excited and stock up on some of our favorite stage makeup items.
Here are the products that we can't live without for stage and special effects.
RCMA No Color Powder
Okay, we'll admit it: This one toes the line between being a "stage" product and a daily wear product. After all, it's the new cult favorite darling of YouTube and Instagram makeup stars. This silky powder is spectacular at killing shine and evening out the complexion, especially when used under the eyes. No stage lights are a match for this amazing finishing powder.
Sure, there are ways to adhere prosthetics to your face with items you have around the house, such as eyelash glue or non-toxic glue sticks. However, we think investing in a professional-grade adhesive is totally worth it. Telesis adhesives will help just about any prosthetics to stay on your face, yet wash away easily with makeup remover. They're great even for those with sensitive skin types.
Kryolan Dermacolor Palette Show
We're more than a little obsessed with this palette, which is the last product you'll ever need when it comes to foundation and concealer for the stage. It's perfect for both camera and stage makeup and everyone from Broadway stars to newscasters swear by it for a flawless and smooth finish. It's a little pricy, sure, but you need very little product to do a full face, meaning you get a lot of bang for your buck.
Mehron Cheek Color Palette
This is a product that isn't just perfect for the stage; indeed, it might find a place in your regular makeup stash. This product contains eight beautiful cheek colors that can also be blended to create a custom color that's perfect for whatever look you're trying to achieve. They apply smoothly and are highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way.
Ben Nye Final Seal Setting Spray
No list of stage makeup products would be complete without something from Ben Nye. They truly are the gold standard in makeup for film and stage. If you're new to the brand, give their setting spray a try. No matter what products you've used to create your stage look, this magic spray will ensure that it all stays on, no matter what. We don't know any stage performers who don't swear by this as the final step of their stage makeup routine.
