Depends on the comp. the comps I dance at don't have the hot lights. There are things you can do to make your makeup stay on a lot longer...a mary kay lady did my makeup for my wedding and it looked the same in the morning at 8 as it did at midnight. Maybe someday I'll need to upgrade to something totally immovable, but I have pretty sensitive skin and I worry about what would happen if I use something my face isn't used to. One way or the other I'll find out what colors I need, which is really the goal. And I'll have expert help picking it out.
