You better believe these stars know their way around the ballroom and a bronzing stick.
After Dancing With the Stars wrapped up its debut season on Disney+ in November 2022, much of the cast including Emma Slater, Kateryna Klishyna and Alexis Warr Burton continued moving and grooving all over the country by participating in the show's live tour.
Without a professional hair and makeup team along for the ride, they became just as adept with their glam as they are with the fox trot. Among the techniques they have to share: less can be so much more.
"It's not about a huge amount of beauty and makeup products on the face," Kateryna shared with E! News in an exclusive interview. "You just need to find those that works perfect for you. Sometimes I can do make up in 30 minutes with minimum products and it's going to look amazing on stage."
For Alexis, she believes it's best to start with the eyes when getting ready for a show. Fortunately, her co-star Emma has a game-changing product to help.
"A lot of us on the tour use the Brow Freeze by Anastasia Beverly Hills, which is a brow styling wax in a pot," she said. "We just use a brow brush to shape them in place and voila! I love brows and I'm so happy that thick brows made a comeback."
Once you move to the whole face, Emma recalled a tip she received from Dancing With the Stars alum Gabby Windey "that spraying your makeup lightly—from a safe distance—with hair spray is actually a great hack for setting your makeup if you don't have setting spray handy. I actually tried it one night for the tour and it totally works!"
And if you do find yourself on a big stage, wanting to grab the attention of fans in the front row to the last seat in the house, Emma has some tips.
"When I'm on stage, I like to do my makeup a lot stronger than I would if it were an everyday look," she said. "Because of that, I like to use really pigmented and shimmery eyeshadows and dark liners that show up from further away and in stage lighting. I start my makeup with my eyes first and foundation second, so that any shadow that drops down onto my cheeks I can wipe away using a cotton pad and micellar water."
Regardless of if the spotlight is on you or you want to trot to the store for errands, Kateryna urges women to protect their skin. One important step for every routine is to invest in good makeup removal.
"The health of my skin and an easy way of removing makeup is so important for me," she shared of her pick, Farmacy's Green Clean Makeup Meltaway. "My skin is sensitive, but this cleansing balm so magically soft and effective on my skin. I can't image my everyday without it."
