Everyone seems to covet the ballet dancer look. From ballet bodies, the show BunHeads, and pretty in pink accessories, the ballet chic look is here to stay. It’s classic, timeless, and lets you indulge in feeling beautiful and girly. Not sure how to create the look yourself? Here are some great tips and pretty products to get you started:
The ballet look is all about subtle elegance. First thing first, sweep your hair back into a simple bun, use lots of bobby pins to make sure it stays in place, or opt for a simple ponytail accented with a pretty hair tie. We like these Double Wear Elastics from Goody, when they’re not in your hair they double as a bracelet! Once your hair is perfect, make sure your makeup matches. Opt for subtle pinks and chocolates; create a perfectly neutral eye with a slightly smokey look using your 6 Piece Eye Brush Set. Check out our blog on the perfect neutral eye for step by step instructions. Finished with your eyes? Sweep on a pink blush with a soft blush brush and create lips to match with a smudge proof lip stain. Products we like? Clinique’s Totally Neutral Color Surge Eye Shadow Trio, Physician’s Formula Happy Booster Blush and Tarte’s Lucky Light Pink Lip Tint.
Feeling like you want to take the next step and start working out like a dancer? Check out the new book Ballet Beautiful by Mary Helen Bowers (she helped Natalie Portman get in shape for Black Swan) before you head to your first dance class. Don’t forget to pack your dance bag too! Toss a reusable water bottle into your chic gym or yoga bag. Don’t forget your EcoTools brushes and makeup for post work out touch ups. We like stashing our brushes in our Deluxe Pencil Case designed by Alicia Silverstone. It has lots of compartments for your brushes, makeup, and miscellaneous essentials on the go.
