Glitter fever at Strictly Come Dancing – week 9 Tower Ballroom Blackpool!
Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to be asked to provide the makeup for Take That’s fabulous dancers, who were performing on Strictly Come Dancing at the world famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom!
Now, being a massive Strictly fan and of course a huge Take That fan, naturally I jumped at the chance to be a part of this hugely popular show and to experience some of the backstage magic that goes on behind the scenes!
The job itself was to makeup all 14 of Take That’s amazing dancers…the theme was a cool and funky 70’s vibe with plenty of colour and GLITTER! Timings were incredibly tight and it was a very busy backstage area indeed. The dancers looked absolutely amazing in their wonderful outfits, fabulous hair and of course…retro Disco inspired makeup!
I was lucky enough to be able to watch Take That’s performance in the world famous Tower Ballroom and to watch my hard work come to life on the stage. Safe to say I absolutely loved every minute and felt very privileged to watch the show live as it happened! I got to meet a couple of the strictly dancers as well (majorly excited by this)!
The amazing Glitterlips that some of the girls wore, were provided by Glitter Lips by Beauty Boulevard.
These fabulous lip products give the most amazing 3 dimensional shine and glitter look…in a huge array of colours. They are food and drink proof and strictly proof too! Myself and the dancers completely fell in love with them and I will be using them on my Christmas party clients for a special party look! check them out below
below are a few raw, unedited natural shots of the girls and the backstage craziness at Strictly!
Until next time…
