Geek Out with Princess Farhana and DeVilla


Makeup for Belly Dance

Belly Dance Geek Clubhouse Episode 50:
My guests, Princess Farhana and DeVilla will talk about makeup looks and application tips for belly dance.

No matter your chosen style (or styles) of dance, cosmetics help performers achieve an overall look, enhance our persona, and help us communicate with the audience using our facial features.

But not everyone comes to the dance with personal experience applying stage makeup. Many of us have had to learn by trial and error, discovering only when we see performance pictures that basic, everyday application isn’t enough!

Princess Farhana and DeVilla will be joining us on the call to show us – via a live web conference – some tips and tricks for challenging elements of stage makeup, like false lashes and making small, deep set, and hooded eyes look larger!


You’ll learn:

  • What distinguishes stage makeup from an everyday look
  • The importance of venue size (small restaurant vs. large theater stage)
  • When to scrimp & when to save on beauty products


Get personal help with your makeup

In addition, Clubhouse members may submit a photo of themselves in stage makeup to get personalized feedback from our guests during the episode! To submit, an email to with your photo (a close-up is best!), your stage name and city/state/country.

And as always, we’ll have some discussion time, so you can ask them your questions.


This free call will take place on Tuesday, May 9 at 6pm Eastern Time.
(see that in your own time zone)

In honor of our 50th episode, we’ll be doing a special video call, which you can stream live in any web browser.

If you can’t attend live, don’t worry!
The call will be recorded, so you can listen later.

  1. Darn you all straight to heck. I’ve never been a makeup person and rarely wear more than mascara and eyeliner on a special occasion.

    But thanks to you, I have an Amazon wish list now that contains everything from primer to false eyelashes to cosmetic glitter, and I’m even considering a trip to *gasp* the cosmetic counter to get foundation.
