Even if cheerleading isn't your thing, you can still steal their beauty secrets -- and we're not talking flashy bows and rhinestones
When it comes to cheer, profuse sweating is a beauty no-no. So how do we stay fresh-faced after a four-hour football game in the hot sun? It's called sweat proof makeup. Nikki Khayat, founder of Fancy Face Cosmetics, first established this sweat proof line of makeup in 2008 for cheerleaders and dancers. Now, everyone from brides to businesswomen use it.
Khayat says, "All our products are mineral-based and we use a hypoallergenic formula to make it so your makeup doesn't drip down your face." I can attest to that. After performing for several hours in a dry open field near Las Vegas, I felt like I was sweating like a pig, but you couldn't see a drop on me. (My favorite product? The Sweat-proof Mineral Powder, $22, that comes in four different shades depending on your skin tone.) Khayat says the super-finely ground minerals let air get into your skin through the makeup, so the sweat doesn't stay on your face and you don't get breakouts from the makeup seeping into your pores.
