Makeup Workshop by Kandi at Glow Beauty Inc. – 2 to 5 pm

Glow Beauty Website

It’s the day of the show and you’re getting ready for your performance. You’ve gathered all your costume items and props in a bag, your hair is set, and all you have left to do is your makeup. As you lay everything out maybe you struggle to find the right brush to apply the perfect shade to accentuate your eyes. Or perhaps those false lashes just won’t sit right. Well, worry no more as Kandi, our professional makeup artist, guides you through all the tips and tricks to the perfect stage makeup application using your own makeup and brushes – you might as well learn to use what you already have! This is a hands-on workshop after which you’ll be ready for your photo shoot should you choose to take advantage of the opportunity. Backlit mirrors will be provided for the use of each participant.

You will learn proper skin preparation, choosing the right foundation / concealer, how to apply blush / highlights / contouring, eye prep for lasting makeup, creating a polished smokey eye, choosing colors / color placement, crease blending, eyeliner application, using pops of color for an added edge, eyebrow maintenance and filling, and false lash application.

Cost for the makeup workshop is $65 per person and each participant will receive an information booklet and a chance to create a personalized shopping list with recommendations from Kandi.

Photo Shoot by Bill Allen Photography – 2 to 7 pm

BA Photo Website

Have you ever wanted professional photos to use as promotion for classes you teach, on your website, or on social media? Perhaps you’ve just never had good luck with capturing a great shot of your dancing during a show. Well, now is your chance to do just that!

Once your makeup has been expertly applied by you with guidance from a professional makeup artist you can choose to participate in a photo shoot for yourself and/or your group. Participation in the workshop is not required to attend the photo shoot. Those individuals or groups not partaking in the workshop can have their photo session between 2 to 5 pm to allow those attending the workshop to have their opportunity in the 5 to 7 pm time frame.

Each individual or group will be scheduled for a 15-minute session (depending on interest). You will be contacted with your scheduled appointment and all the details before the event.

Cost to sign up is $15 for individuals and $40 for groups. Only ONE person should register your group. You may split the cost among yourselves as you see fit. Each individual or group will receive one digital photo for their personal use. There will be a waiver to sign. Additional photos are available at the same cost ($15 – individuals & $40 – groups) directly from Bill.

Buffet Dinner and Hafla – 6:30 to 9 pm

Now that you’re all beatified and had your photo shoot, stick around for a delicious buffet of East Indian food from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm followed by the hafla. Hafla is a belly dance party with food and dancers taking turns performing for each other and/or some open-floor dancing for everyone to get up and enjoy the music. There will be a signup sheet at registration if you’d like to perform. We will also have some dance games depending on the mood.

Members not attending either the workshop nor photo shoot are invited to attend the dinner and hafla free of charge. Non-members are welcome to join the hafla only starting at 7:30 pm for a donation ($2 recommended). Non-members do not need to RSVP, they can just arrive around 7:30 pm.

Registration Closed.
