  • Depends on the parts they're playing. Kids playing kids, I would do a bright cheek and an eyeliner. Kids playing adults I would skip the cheek. Because of their age, I don't think parents are looking to see their kids spackled over. A little emphasis for eyes and lips for the girls, and just eyes for the boys.

  • really? none. i've been in school plays and the only "make-up" we had was the Halloween stuff. Real make-up usually contains hormones that are bad for little kids.

  • I'm sorry, what make-up do you use? I have never seen any make-up with hormones in it. LOL

  • Are they sure make up is required ? My son did several plays in school and NOT one kid wore make up. I would not have allowed it personally, because it seems not needed.

    I think if you are required then go with pink cheeks. I would avoid eyes and mouths, just a way of spreading colds and pink eye. Not a great idea.

  • I would just use regular make up and get some q-tips to put it on, that way you are not spreading germs from one child to another.
