The Basics of Cheer Makeup
Cheer makeup focuses primarily on having very highly visible eyes and lips. Some blush may be used, but because the cheer leaders are seen from a distance, highly visible, brightly colored lips and eyes are the focus. Many teams encourage the girls to use glitter on either the lips or eyes, some also use things like rhinestones and facial jewelry, and some may make use of team colors.
It’s generally accepted that the lip color will either match one of the shades of color used on the eyes, or if that’s not possible, a bold shade that coordinates with the others. The eyes or the lips can be glittered, but rarely both at once, as this look can get a little overwhelming. If you’ve ever taken a course in eye and lash art, you’ll probably be familiar with how to create numerous eye catching looks on the lids. If not, however, it’s easy to learn how to apply makeup with a professional appearance with just a little bit of practice.
