With springtime on it's way, (and yes, I promise, it IS coming...sometime.) a lot of people are getting their kids ready for dance teams, cheerleading squads, and even pageants. There is so much to do to prepare, like making sure costumes and uniforms fit properly, shoes are in good shape, and of course, that there is makeup worthy for a stage or athletic field.
While I don't have a child in cheer or pageants, I know a lot of you might. So I'd love to share a great makeup brand that caters to these needs perfectly. BA STAR offers a wide variety of products geared specifically towards competition and performance. Their makeup is designed to not only stand out, but to stay on, no matter how active you may be.
In addition to makeup, BA STAR also offers bling, hair accessories, and can even create custom kits to match all those costumes and uniforms. They even offer free samples of their professional quality makeup so you're sure to find the perfect look. Pretty cool, right? Oh, and these products cost a fraction of what you'd expect to pay for comparable, upper-end brands.
I received a great eyeshadow palate to check out for myself, as well as their amazing "glue" eyeshadow primer. The palate I received has some great, shimmery neutrals as well as a gorgeous purple that I absolutely love. Included is also a dual applicator with both a standard eyeshadow applicator as well as a small brush.
I would post pictures of me wearing these products as intended, but I have to be honest...My entire household is sick, and has been for the past week. So I have not been resting, my nose is red and stuffy, and I have some major, major bags under my itchy eyes right now. Not to mention, I really need to wax my brows. I have some weird, Chewbacca looking stuff going on right now, and it's definitely not pretty. So these swipes on my inner forearm will just have to do until I feel a bit better.
As you can see, the colors are very vibrant and rich. I love the broze-ish and golden colors, and the purple is stunning. I also really like the lightest shade, which is barely visible here. This has a light shimmer effect, and makes a great highlighter for the brow area.
When applied on top of the "Glue" aka primer, this makeup has some serious staying power. Since I have been so sick lately, I have really been able to test it out. Somehow, even with itchy, watery eyes and constant sneezing, my eyeshadow staying beautifully in place for several hours.
If you're a Dance or Cheer parent, or you just love fun makeup for yourself, definitely check out BA STAR. These super-affordable products definitely perform as well as those expensive makeup brands, and come in so many fun colors and finishes!
