How much make up is to much when dancing?

[FONT="Book Antiqua"]So I was wondering when dancing Ladies traditional buckskin how much make up is to much? (I my self only use mascara and lip gloss) My grandmother has told me she thinks wearing ANY make-up is not a good thing and my mother says a little bit is okay since she has seen it at other powwows.
I know elders and mothers know best but outside feed back would be greatly loved! :)
Also: At some powwows I have seen some dancers putting small symbols such as stars,hearts,and medicine wheels around the corners of their eyes that go with their bead work. Is this "allowed" in the sense that the judges don't mind.
Thanks for your time

I think any makeup that is garish or too theatrical or overdone tends to take away from the dancer's appearance rather than enhance it.

I also think that many women forget that ordinary makeup is not made to stand up to the riggers of hot, humid, summer suns that are coupled with dancing up a sweat. I've seen many women after a Jingle or Fancy Shawl song end up looking like Tammy Faye Bakker when their mascara runs off their fake eyelashes.

I find the grossest part of all the overdone makeup is seeing it caked on the outfit's collar and you know it's from the last time the dancer wore the outfit. ewwwwwww

I think it is too much when someone can't tell the difference between "to" and "too."

I believe that -- if men can greasepaint their entire melons -- women possess quite a bit of freedom as well.

At this point, many buckskins incorporate so much flash, color and beadwork that knocking nearly anything incorporating the face as out-of-bounds merely strikes me as odd.

I remember nearly twenty years ago when someone told me I shouldn't wear Oakleys into the arena. I told him I needed them to not be blinded by his hot pink and neon green hackles...

Perhaps what I'm seeing is from the practical viewpoint of wearing makeup that is not meant to be applied heavily as is theatrical/stage makeup can be. Your average drug store foundation runs off with the slightest of damp brows. Too heavily applied and you have a hot, goopy mess when the sweat level goes up. That is certainly not attractive in a competition way of views.

I have no issues with either men or women wearing face designs as long as it's part of their overall look and is applied with the appropriate materials/products. Runny mascara is not a good look for anyone...
