Roller Derby Makeup Waterproofing Tips

I've written about derby makeup in February 2012 and September 2012, so basically the beginning and end of my rookie season. With another year of derby behind me, I've tweaked the process just slightly.


Face Primer: Smashbox Photo Finish
Foundation: MAC Face and Body Foundation and Tarte mineral powder
Concealer: Cargo OneBase
Blush: None! My face naturally reddens quickly mid-bout.
Finishing Powder: Make Up For Ever HD Microfinishing Powder

Rub a little primer all over clean skin. Apply foundation. Touch up with concealer. Cover with powder. Finish with finishing powder.


Eye Primer: Too Faced Shadow Insurance in Candlelight
Eye Shadow: MAC Paint Pots, MAC/Urban Decay shadows, Bare Escentuals in Queen Phyllis, LORAC 3D Liquid Lustre
Waterproof Mascara: Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes!
Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner: Urban Decay 24/7 liners
Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner: Sephora Waterproof Smoky Gel Liner

Do eye primer first. Then line top and bottom lids with pencil eyeliner. Use Paint Pots as shadows all over. Top painted areas with similar powder colors. Dab Liquid Lustre over color for extra glitter if desired. Then go back over the liner on the top with liquid eyeliner and angled brush. Touch up the bottom liner with pencil if necessary.


Lip primer: MAC Prep + Prime Lip
Lipstick: MAC Viva Glam I or NARS Cruella
Lipliner: MAC Pro Longwear lip pencil in Kiss Me Quick
Powder: Make Up For Ever HD Microfinishing Powder

Line lips fully with lipliner. Apply just enough lipstick to cover evenly. Dust lightly with powder. Reapply lipliner. Reapply lipstick. Do not use lipgloss.

When you're all done, finish with Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix.
