I wasn't sure where to post this thread. Admin, please relocate this thread to a more appropriate spot if necessary.
I've recently offered to do the makeup for a production of The Wiz that a local church youth group is doing. I've never had any kind of gig before! (I'm 17, BTW.) The other people on staff have told me that they will write me a check so I can purchase the makeup and other materials that I'll need. Now, I have plenty of makeup for my own personal use, but not much that is really kit-worthy (no range of foundation shades, absolutely no stage makeup, no special effects).
I've made a list of everything that I feel that I need, but the total cost scares me. So I'm wondering: How much money is to much to ask for? What limits should I set? Is there anything that I should try to just buy with my own money?
Thanks in advance!
