Ballet Recital Pictures…

My daughter had her ballet recital pictures yesterday, she is having her recital at the Jack Singer Hall next weekend, she is performing in her group which is called “Honey”. There are 11 girls and 1 boy in her group and they are all dressed up as bees!

We were told to buy gold eyeshadow, black eyeliner and orange lipstick for lips and cheeks, no instructions on what to do with it! and curl their hair (we cut her hair off about 1 mos ago). I’m a first time Mom with a daughter in ballet so I had no IDEA what I was doing, after a couple of phone calls I had an idea! It was very hard to find orange lipstick, I bought something close, well yesterday on our way to her pictures I decided to stop at a new make up / hair place called Glamour Secrets hoping to find something a little more “orange” in color, well the young girl there asked if I would like for her to do her make-up, I was a little hesitant, but, she said: “it’s quiet, and I won’t charge you…SOLD! Well I got lots of comments on her hair (which I did) and make-up, the owner / director said that she was perfect and looked beautiful.

It’s moments / events like this that really pull on my heart strings and make proud to be a Mommy!

We get the professional pictures back next weekend…I cannot wait.

    How adorable! Love the curly hair. Thankfully, when my oldest dd (now 9) was in dance (from age 4-8), we didn’t have to do anything but pull the hair back in a bun and use mascara, natural colored eyeshadow and blush and red lipstick. I would have never been able to do the curly hair with my dd’s thick hair!
