We wear tons of pretty costumes in ice shows, and it's our responsibility to make sure we treat them with respect and don't mess them up. Want to know the easiest way to mess them up? Getting lipstick all over them. That's why I always blot my lipstick.
It's so ingrained in my head that I thought everyone did it, but at my current show one of our new girls kept getting her lipstick all over the place. I asked her if she was remembering to blot, and she didn't know what that was! So that's why today's Showgirl Beauty Tip is about blotting, blotting, blotting.
To blot your lips, all you have to do is fold a tissue in half, place it between your lips, then gently close your mouth onto the tissue. Don't rub your lips around, just press them against the tissue and then release it, leaving a perfect lip mark on the tissue.
All the extra lipstick that came off on the tissue is the same lipstick that would have ended up on your clothes, on your teeth, or on your coffee cup. Now you'll be keeping your lipstick to yourself!
