The other day I got the awesome opportunity to do makeup for a dance act opening for Sarah McLachlan at the 2010 Olympics One Year Countdown Concert at the Queen Elizabeth Theater in Vancouver. The world will be watching the city of Vancouver one year from now during the Olympic Winter games. It's going to be the most exciting 2 weeks the city has seen in a long time.
The dance act I had the pleasure of doing makeup for was a mix of traditional Chinese and Aboriginal dancers. They performed traditional dances representing their cultures. The Chinese and Aboriginal communities are a big part of Vancouver's culture so it's appropriate that they represent us in the 2010 Olympic games.
The makeup for the Chinese dancers was a strong red lip and really defined black eye liner, winged out.
The makeup for the Aboriginal dancers was a mix between warm golden tones on the eyes, cheeks and lips.
For both groups, I did a lot of contouring to really emphasize their features while they're on stage under the bright lights.
The dancers put on an amazing show!
I can't wait for the games!!!
