Hello, my friendliest of friendly friends! As you know, my high school show, Fame, just ended and I’m still trying to bask in the glory of the show. I should probably move on. Anyways! When I performed on stage, I wore a lot of heavy makeup in order to be seen under the stage lights and to look like my character. I also needed beauty products that would last on my face through the heat of the stage lights and all the dancing that went down. These are some of the beauty products I used to ensure that I would look like Carmen all night long! These are products that are long lasting and of fabulous quality.
Revlon Colorstay Foundation: This foundation is awesome for performances, because it gives really full coverage and has great staying power. It definitely came in handy!
NYX HD Eyeshadow Primer: This is my favorite eyeshadow primer. My eyelids are really oily and eyeshadow tends to crease on me. However, this primer keeps my shadow on, with no creasing or fading. I love it.
Duo Lash Glue: The lash glue is great! It’s inexpensive, easy to use, and does a great job of keeping my lashes in place for the entire show.
Kiss False Lashes: These lashes are absolutely amazing. They give length, volume, and also look really natural. They add a hint of drama to the eyes, while sitting comfortably on the lash line.
Coastal Scents Revealed Palette: This is a staple in my beauty bag, both for shows and for everyday life. The shadows are really pigmented and smooth-great quality. It’s also great for when I need to create a certain look for a character, because there’s so many shadows to choose from.
Loreal Total Repair Conditioning Balm: Though this product isn’t great for keeping my makeup on, it’s perfect for keeping my hair smooth and soft. I use a lot of heat on my hair during shows, as I need to get those 80s curls, and this product really aids in repairing the damage.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Creating a look for a character is definitely one of my favorite parts of acting and these products help make sure that I can create and maintain that image. Anyways! Have a great day and I will talk to you later!
