So do I...I look at my eye makeup close up (even when it's just eyeliner...ha!) and think 'ew ew, I am never wearing eyeliner again' but then I go even as close as 5 metres away and it looks better.

I'm still not wearing eyeliner to my next comp though.

I think, you can wear anything you like.

Do however remember, that you will be seen at a distance and not close-up. So what you think looks good in the mirror in the bathroom or the hotel room will be watched from a much greater distance then that.

Dora-Satya Veda

In theater, this is called the "30-foot rule," and I think it applies perfectly to ballroom competitions too.  Basically, you have to look at (or think about) whatever makeup/hair/jewelry/costuming/etc. you're wearing from 30 feet away, where the judges/audience will be seeing it, to realistically evaluate whether it's appropriate or not.  Is it big enough to be seen from 30 feet away?  Is it bold enough?  Strong enough?

Or, on the flip side, if there's an imperfection somewhere, can it even be detected from that far away?  If a stone is missing from the dress, for instance, or if your hair isn't as perfectly slicked down as you'd like it if you were being photographed close-up, is it noticeable from a distance or is it okay to let it slide?

You have to suspend your judgment of what's tacky, gaudy, oversized, etc. a bit when you're dealing with performancewear, LOL...

Thanks for this

You are a Social dancer and you are not expected to wear the same in make-up...I think this is something that will grow as your dancing grows.

If you dance only socially, I agree with you that no eyeliner necessary; but if you do decide to compete, eyeliner is important, it makes your eyes appear larger and gives a more dramatic look, looks better on pictures too;)

Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels.

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

I should teach my partner how to do makeup - just for fun. It wouldn't surprise me if he was better at it than I am.
