How to apply Cheer Competion Makeup
Cheerleading Makeup is your best accessory to your uniform during competition. Coordinating the colors of your uniform, cheer bow, and makeup is critical to highlight your facials for the judges. Talk to your coach to make sure you have the required colors and products that are needed before competition day. Always take the time before competition to experiment with your makeup. Cheerleading competition day is stressful and the last thing you need is a makeup meltdown!
Begin with a clean moisturized face and apply a base foundation to match your skin tone. Do not use bronzing powders. This will make your facial skin tone darker than the rest of your body. Use a mineral makeup to give your that flawless skin texture. Mineral makeup absorbs moisture as well.
Apply eyeliner first. Use liquid eyeliner or pencil for a smooth defined line around your lash line being careful not to apply to much. You will need room for eye shadow or shimmer shadow. Using black, gold or silver are the most dramatic colors to line your eyes with. This depends upon your team colors.
Eye shadows and eye glitter are the most popular finishes. Choose products by how much you want your eyes to glitter or shimmer. Be careful, glitter products are sometimes not allowed at cheer competitions.
Shimmer powders on the eyes give a soft hint of color and shimmer while glitter products are bold and stand out. When applying shimmer powders or glitter, layer colors starting from dark to light going toward the brow. Two colors are more than enough otherwise your eyes will be two busy. To apply glitter properly, ensure you have effective glitter glue. Glitter in the eyes is not a pleasant experience. Keep your eyes closed until the glue is dry and you can brush of the excess glitter or shimmer powder.
Purchase blush darker than you would normally wear for your daily wear makeup. The effect is more dramatic. To not apply to much or the application will look unprofessional. Blend the color with a brush from your cheekbone to your temples.
Apply your lipstick last and right before you hit the floor. Use a bold bright color, such as candy apple red, and apply a clear shiny lip gloss over it. You can add glitter layer over the lipstick or lip gloss for a dramatic effect.
Enjoy, and don’t forget to smile for the judges!
