Today’s mini post is an insight into the makeup design for Scottish Ballet’s Hansel and Gretel.

Helping to bring the magical beings of Hansel and Gretel to life is make-up sponsor M∙A∙C who have worked with costume designer Gary Harris to create the fantastical looks of each character.

“I loved Gary Harris’ designs, it was clear that make-up would play an important part in his vision” explains M∙A∙C Senior Make-Up Artist Caroline Donnelly, “with so many characters and some dancers performing more than one role, my challenge was to create looks that could be adapted easily, quickly and still look incredible.  I’ve created special M∙A∙C face charts (like paint-by-numbers for the face) and will be teaching the dancers how to recreate these looks themselves for each performance.”
