It’s not just a Bling Thing
We practice 3 hours a day, 6 days a week, four weeks a month, and 12 months a year, all for a 2.5 minutes routine. When you hit the floor for those 2.5 minutes all eyes are on you. It's not just a bling thing! Cheerleaders love to look good while performing those high flying stunts but glitter and sparkle may not be right for squad.
Consider other options that will make your eyes pop. A smokey eye look is classic and can be done in any color to match your cheerleading uniform or dance costume. What you will need is one black eyeliner pencil, eyeshadow concealer and two eyeshadow colors that will complement each other such as a light purple and dark purple shimmer shadow from Pretty Girl Cosmetics.
Your color choices are endless and can be either shimmery shadow or a rich matte depending on your liking.
If you would like to define and highlight your brow line choose a white or pale color to highlight under your brow.
Steps to create a Smokey Eye
- Apply your usual foundation or tinted moisturizer. Once you have your face makeup applied use an eyeshadow concealer on your eyelids up to your brow line. Using an eyeshadow concealer is critical and will make your eyeshadow colors appear much deeper and shimmers will look like liquid metallic eyeshadow.
- Apply your eyeliner around your lash line making it thicker along the upper lash line.
- Apply the lighter base color to your eyelid up slightly over your crease line. Blend your base color with a blending brush.
- With an eyeliner brush apply your darker contour color around your eye blending it well with your pencil line.
- Close your eye and blend the darker contour color in your crease.
- In the corners of your eye blend the darker color into a horizontal V shape to add drama.
- Blend the darker color until you have the smokey eye effect.
- Use your highlight color below your brow.
