To give your performance look an instant boost, swipe on one of these shimmering highlighters as the finishing touch to your makeup routine. Made in a range of pearlescent colors from frosty lavenders and pinks to rich golds and bronzes, there's a highlighter to complement every role. Apply the product to the high points of your face (cheekbones, bridge of the nose and cupid's bow) for maximum impact under the stage lights. For more glow when using a powder, spritz your brush (or BeautyBlender) with a face mist first to create a super-pigmented finish they'll see from the fourth ring.
Chalk it up to my years spent dancing onstage with a full smoky eye and false lashes, but I never feel completely ready without some form of eye makeup. Even in class, I always wanted to add definition to my eyes and give them a more wide-awake appearance. To stop flakes and raccoon eyes from ruining your lengthened lashes while you dance, try one of these waterproof options.
Rehearsal days might not require the full face of makeup (and false lashes) you break out onstage, but that doesn't mean you have to go completely bare, either. Still, slathering on a heavy foundation for class leads to streaks of color running down your face once you start to sweat and clogged pores that quickly turn into breakouts. That's where these lightweight formulas come into play. A mix of BB creams (short for beauty balm) and tinted moisturizers, this list combines the best of both worlds when it comes to skincare and base makeup, helping to even out your skin tone and create a more fresh-faced finish. Plus, they melt right into your skin to work with you while you perfect that triple pirouette.
