BA Star Make-Up is professional make-up designed to stand out and stay put; specifically targeted towards dancers and cheerleaders. Why, you ask, am I talking about it with you, as I am neither a dancer or a cheerleader. However I once was a dancer, regularly performing and sometimes competing. Having the proper make-up and making sure you don’t have to continuously reapply it is very important. No one has time for that nonsense. Cameras, whether video or still, have a remarkable effect on what people look like, especially if a professional flash is used. This is a huge goal for those of us that have spent any amount of time in theater, competitive dance and any performance arts. Recently however I have begun to appreciate the value of this type of make-up and application. Occasionally I have the opportunity to spend the day at press events, either behind or in front of the camera. I meet a variety of people and I want to look my best. Having quality make-up that lasts is important. So, I was curious whether or not this make-up would work with an everyday look as well.
BA Star make-up gets that; and by providing deeply pigmented make-up and a eye-shadow glue accomplish that. BA Star has everything you could need for competition kits to create a uniform look that judges like. You can order from them in bulk and create custom kits that include all you need, including mascara, eyelashes and bronzers.
The colors in this palette is remarkable, especially the blue. They are bright and deep, and frankly I couldn’t resist trying them out for everyday. The perfect colors to create a smoky eye.
I decided to create the look recommended for a competition look, created by the BA Star team and uploaded on YouTube. How easy would their suggestion be to recreate without having a professional make-up artist on hand to do it. The look was very easy to recreate with the brushes I had on hand, aside from the glitter, which I didn’t have. I decided to use the shadow glue on one eye so that you could see the difference.
