Good Quality, Cheap Make Up Options for The Eisteddfod Season

With competition season quickly approaching for our Elite teams and soloists, as well as the end of year concert coming up fast, I’ve decided to put together a few options for cheap but effective make up for everyone who is new to our L.E.A family or is thinking about replacing old make up.

Make up and costuming is a very important part of making sure our dancers perform to the best of their abilities and feel confident up on the stage however sometimes we just don’t have $50 laying around to spend on one tiny bottle of foundation or $30 for some red lipstick, so here are a few options that work just as well
