Ballerinas are trending on TikTok, but not for their dancing. It's all about the ballerina aesthetic called balletcore. Sleek buns, fuzzy pink cardigans and soft pink makeup are part of this vibe. It's soft and feminine, but also sculpted and athletic, just like a prima ballerina.
If you want to recreate this ballerina look at home, follow this tutorial by professional ballerina Luna Montana as she shows how she gets ready for ballet practice. It's très chic, but also a perfect everyday look that doesn't take long to do. You'll have a polished glow for work, but also a romantic shimmer for date night. Let's begin!
2. A flawless start.
Start with impeccable skin thanks to Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, an illuminating complexion booster and foundation.
3. Sculpt your angles.
Next sculpt your face with a light, blendable, cream-to-powder formula like Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Match Stix Matte Contour Skinstick, which will make cheekbones pop.
4. Get cheeky.
Next, dot cheeks with a pinky cream blush like Beauty Light Wand from Charlotte Tilbury. This is key as it will give you that ballet-flushed rosy glow, like you've been plié-ing for hours.
5. Groom the brows.
Brows should be neat and natural, which is easily done with a quick brush and fill from Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer.
6. The eyes have it.
Continuing with that simple pink palette, dab a pinky shade like Pillow Talk or Rose Gold from Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerize Cream Eyeshadow on lids.
7. Highlight the eye.
Highlight the inner corners of the eye with this versatile shimmery highlighter, Cookie Powder Highlighter from Benefit Cosmetics.
8. Glissade across the lids.
Next, line eyes with a brown creamy pencil with a delicate wing at the outer corners. Crunchi Highliner® Pencil Eyeliner glides on smoothly and lasts for 16 hours.
9. Glow without the shine.
Now set all that shimmer with a matte setting powder like Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder. Your natural glow will come through, without the shine.
10. Stay in your (lip) line.
Line lips with a warm pink lip crayon for the perfect pout. Crunchi Everlux Lip Crayon is gentle on lips as it's made with a blend of nourishing organic ingredients, but still packs a pigment punch.
11. Now it's time to really shine!
On top of the lip crayon, layer on a shimmery pink gloss like Essence Cosmetics Extreme Shine Volume Lip Gloss.
12. Allongé the lashes.
Add the finishing touch with big, natural lashes. Essence Cosmetics Lash Princess Curl Mascara will get you there in just a few swipes.
13. Now set it all.
Now set your look with Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Super Setter Pore-Minimizing Setting Spray. It's sweat-proof and smudge-proof to lock in your makeup and minimize pores for 16 hours, through ballet class and thensome.
