Sometimes when it comes to a theatre trip, you really don't have the time to do anything too fancy with your hair or make-up, as much as you might want to, and other times - if you're going to a matinee as well as an evening or if the theatre you're going to is a more casual venue - you can't really dress up as much as you want to. A good way I have found of making a simple make-up look or outfit feel that bit more fittingly magical for the theatre is the fabulous invention from Barry M which is Dazzle Dust.
One of the great things about having my little pot of neutral dazzle dust to hand is that it saves me a lot of time and gives me a little bit more leeway when I'm going off on a trip that takes me away from home - this is because I know it will match ANY outfit, so it's an automatic first-pack before I've even thought of anything else, and on top of that I don't even have to think in advance about what make-up colours I'm going for with my outfit, I just pop the iridescent colour in and it will go with whatever eyeshadow I choose, so if I decide I don't like the first colour I try, I know I can try some different options without losing out on my little bit of extra sparkle.
My favourite place to buy my Dazzle Dust from is Superdrug, as they often seem to have the best deals and the best prices, but you can also get Dazzle Dust from Boots, so be sure to compare and contrast and shop around so you can maybe afford to get yourself more than one colour so you can have a whole range of new theatre look ideas right at your fingertips.
