Yes you do! All actors, male and female, need to have a hair and make up kit.
Wearing stage make up is a must. Under stage lights without make up your features may appear flat, dull and washed out. Stage make up enhances your skin tone and allows the audience to see you more clearly!
Overwhelmed? Don't be! If you've never put on make up before the BEN NY PERSONAL CRÈME KIT is a great starter stage make up kit. For only $20 it's an inexpensive investment and comes in a wide variety of skin tones. Make sure you have your kit ready for your production's hair and make up session. Schedule TBD.
322 West 49th Street
Between 8th and 9th Aves
Monday-Saturday 11AM to 6PM
You can go in person or order directly from Alcone on-line.
Yes, both men and women need to have hair styling tools and products in your Hair and Make Up Kit. Combs, brushes, styling products, hair pins and elastics are just some of the items necessary to help create the hairstyles for your character. These items can be purchased at stores like TARGET, CVS or DUANE READE. Beauty supply stores like RICKY'S will also have these items.
