Saturday Superstition Make-up

Saturday Superstition Make-up

There is a theatrical superstition that states you should never clean your make-up box because it will bring bad luck. Hmmm….Most dancers use fishing tackle boxes for their make-up and all those little cubbies can get pretty grimy, so I’m not sure about this one.

“It is unlucky to carry a makeup box, like an amateur actress. The make up with a new set of grease paints on an opening night is unlucky. Makeup boxes should never be 'cleaned out', as this is said to bring bad luck.”

Personally, I never used a tackle box – or any type of box, so I wasn’t faced with the dilemma of to clean or not to clean. I just kept everything in zippered cases. Problem solved.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Superstition #135:
“Never clean your make-up box.”
