The Competition Day

The key to a good and successful competition is a well-planned day. First of all, you have to know you and your partner’s habits, your needs, routines, etc.
Then allow yourself enough time in the morning for a healthy breakfast because food will be your fuel for the day.
For your hair and makeup you need at least 1-2 hours prior to the start of the competition and remember that you also need time for warming up, getting dressed and checking your heats.

Arunas-Bizokas-and-Katusha-Demidova-dancing-at-Blackpoool-2012-2Another thing to consider is, if you prepare yourself in a hotel room that you’re sharing with your partner, then your preparation time for your dance look might increase significantly. Just keep that detail in mind. Actually the difference between 1st place and last place is in the details. The top couples in the world know that their look is a big part of their performance and can dramatically affect their outcome. That's why they always spent a sufficient amount of time doing their hair, makeup and dress perfectly. Let's face it: if you want to win the competition, you have to look like a star!

If you avoid stress in the first part of the day because of good organization and skills, then the whole competition will be more pleasurable and successful. There is a very good book for ballroom dancers called "Dance to your Maximum”, written by Maximiliaan Winkelhuis, where you can find important information about the competition day and many other subjects.

Scene1We hope you find this article interesting and it will help you make a good plan for your next competition. If you need information about how to do your hair and makeup, don't hesitate, just subscribe and learn from the Dancelook tutorials which were specifically designed for you to learn fast and easy. You will certainly need these skills to become a well-rounded dancer.

Makeup – A must-have list for a lady dancer

Each competition is something exceptional. It does not matter if it is a small, intimate event or global occasion with first class participants. We always want to feel special and unique and first of all beautiful. Undoubtedly, proper choice of beauty products can help with that and it will make everybody at the dance floor look only at you.

Probably it happened many times that you were wondering what to pack into your vanity case and then, at the competition, it turned out that you had forgotten the most important item. Based on our own experience we would like to recommend a truly reliable set of cosmetics which would work in practice, in every place and all conditions.

It is absolutely necessary to have:

1. Foundation

2. Powder

3. Concealer

4. Blusher

5. Eyeshadows

6. Lipstick and liner

7. Eyebrow liner

8. Eye pencils

9. Eyeliner

10. Mascara

11. Accessories for cosmetics’ application

FACE

The absolute basis here is a well-matched FOUNDATION which will give you perfect and flawless coverage for your face, lasting all day long. While making your choice remember to choose the one which has long-lasting effect. From practical reasons both compact and stick work well.
P1100633

Our number one is DermaBlend Professional Cover Crème which ensures ideal coverage for nearly 12 hours and thanks to a wide range of shades each of us will find something suitable. What is more it is odorless and it does not block pores.

 

 

Other products worth recommending:

sleek- creme to powder

 

Sleek - Creme To Powder – Delicatecream consistency ensures full coverage and at the same time a feeling of lightness.

 

 

 

 

Mac - Full Coverage Foundation, Mac - Pro Longwear Foundation – Perfectly hides all imperfections, moisturizes and gives natural look.

 

 

clinique foundation

 

 

Clinique - Even Better Compact – Oil free, delicately
illuminating, very good compact, comes in an elegant case with a mirror.

 

The prices of these products are different and suitable for different skin types so we are sure that everybody can find something customized for themselves.

In order to set and finish our make-up and to give it final touch a good POWDER is necessary. It will give our skin matt finish or if we prefer it will illumine our face, hiding the differences between concealer and foundation.

MAC Studio Fix

 

 

DANCELOOK recommends Mac - Studio Fix which combines the easiness of application with perfect coverage. In spite of passing time your skin is ideally smooth and dry.

 

derma blend setting powder

 

DermaBlend - Setting Powder –in a powder form, of high durability, transparent without any odor. It is especially recommended for dancers with sensitive skin.

 

 

 

Bobbi Brown: Sheer Finish Loose Powder – perfectly finishes your make-up, prevents shining and even hides fine wrinkles, as the previous one it is colorless.

 

 

egyptische-erde-aegptische_kl

 

Egyra Egyptishe Erde – original Egyptian soil makes this offer interesting and unusual. Apart from great aesthetic effect our skin gets a shot of nutrients hidden in this powder. Vitamins A and E, jojoba oil or Karite butter will additionally pamper our skin.

 

 

Each of you has at least once been annoyed with unbearable spots which would appear on your face despite all the efforts. The effect was that all the face was covered with cosmetics but the things that we wanted to conceal were still visible.

Fortunately, now we have a whole range of CONCEALERS which are 007 secret agents for special tasks. However, you have to choose carefully so that they play their roles and do not spoil the whole makeup.

In this regard DANCELOOK recommends

P1100665

 

 

Dermablend - Quick Fix -  as the name suggests fast and painless

 

 

 

 

Clinique - Line Smoothing Concealer – it conceals literally everything !

 

 

 

 

Sleek - Corrector And Concealer – it covers every red spot

 

 

 

Next important and obligatory aspect of our makeup is a BLUSHER. When smartly used it will model the oval of our face or highlight the cheekbones. Intense and strong colors ideally match dancing competitions.
P1100549   

It is worth experimenting and buying something really exceptional. If you accept this option it is a good idea to select something from a vast offer of Inglot company and we are sure you won’t be disappointed.

EYES

If we want our eyes to be striking, sexy and attracting attention of every judge, they must be properly prepared. EYE SHADOWS in the shades of black, brown and white are here an absolute must-have.P1100553

 

It is difficult to choose the ones which are the best but it is a good idea to browse through the products of Urban Decay - Naked, Inglot or Mac.

 

In order to boost the effect and make our look more seductive, an EYELINER should be used. It will highlight and sharpen your glance. It is necessary to choose a waterproof one so that after winning a competition your tears of joy will not wash it away.

 P1100577DANCELOOK uses  Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner.

 Do not forget about MASCARA  P1100571
And FALSE LASHES.  P1100668

 

From our experience we know that EYEBROWS are often ignored or done in a hurry. Let’s not forget that eyebrows which are properly modelled and match the oval of our face can change a lot!inglot eyebrow pencil 503

We personally use EYEBROW PENCiL Inglot 503 which works well for both fair and dark hair. We recommend it!

 

The last elements for the eyes are EYE PENCILS one black and one white.P1100565    maybelline-master-smoky-shadow-pencil-smoky-black

LIPS

Lips are the last remaining part to be beautified. We use a LIPSTICK and a LIP LINER in classical and charming shades of red and pink.

Again Inglot products help here with very good value for money and a vast range of shades.

P1100578 P1100659

 

 

 

 

With this set of beauty products and foundation, powder and eye shadow BRUSHES as well as Beauty Blender i.e. a special SPONGE for makeup, we can go to any competition and always look beautiful and feminine and what’s the most important natural.

The power of image in a few words

Ricardo iulia

All dancers know how much money they need to invest in their look for a competition or performance. It's important to know how to make the best first impression on the adjudicators.

During their careers, dancers are often praised and critiqued on their style. That is why they search for the best solutions to improve their image.

At the biggest international competitions, we can always use the help of the best stylists like Boyko and Lella, but what about other events? Of course, we want to look our best at these as well. That's how the idea for this website was born.

Dancelook wants to show you the secrets of dance style through short training videos. We want every dancer to look like a world champion, even if they aren’t one yet.
