I’m back with another dance post. This weekend was a pretty crazy weekend. I went to my Joffrey audition on Saturday, then had competition late that night. I had to get up the next morning to do it all again. While rushing around, I realized how IMPORTANT it is to be prepared. I have so many things in my dance bag (makeup, hair stuff, tools I use to stretch, yummy snacks to keep me energized etc) so I decided I would share with you What’s in my dance bag: competition style.
my bag is the one everyone in my team has. I cannot show it to you because of privacy issues (it has my name and dance studio printed on it). It’s extremely important to have a big dance bag with many compartments. Mine has a phone pocket to keep my phone and electronic devices safe while I’m out dancing. Also it’s important that it sips up so that nothing will fly all over the place.
I have a makeup bag I use, that is the perfect size for my needs. I know some people have a larger one than this because they have more makeup, but I feel that this one the best fit for me.
In it I have:
*cali tip: always put your costume on first, then apply lipstick to ensure no lipstick gets on your costume.
believe me, I learned this the hard way
Foundation/Concealer/Bronzer/Contour Palette/Blush You never know when touch ups are needed or if some one needs something
False Lashes +glue
*cali tip: when applying the glue, let it sit out for a couple minutes with the glue on it, before putting on your lash line to let the glue become more tacky and less watery
Eye liner and tape
*cali tip: use tape to get the perfect wing and no smudges
LOTS AND LOTS OF BOBBY PINS and U pins you will never have too many bobby pins and you never know when you will need one
Hairspray and Gel *cali tip: also bring a toothbrush and spray hairspray on it then use to pull back fly aways
Extra Hair nets: your hair net can break any time. Unfortunately I’ve had this happen to me multiple times.
snack ideas: my go to snacks
Fruit salad Get a mason jar or other container and fill it with fruit of your choice, this is easy to keep you energized for the whole day
Trail mix a trail mix full of nuts, dried fruit, and dark chocolate chips is a protein packed power snack!
*cali tip: put it in a mason jar
*cali tip: have at least 4 of these types of snacks at all times in your bag as an emergency energy booster.
