Dancing With the Stars Uses A Lot of Fake Lashes in a Season

Some people watch Dancing With the Stars for the celebrities, the cha cha cha, and Bruno Tonioli’s enthusiasm. We, on the other hand, have a soft spot for the elaborate costumes and makeup. According to People: Head makeup artist Zena Shteysel has been giving the pros and their celeb partners the super-tan, super-sparkly and super-bright beauty looks for years (even winning an Emmy for her work) and once again, she takes us behind the scenes for a peek at what she’s up to already — and what to expect this season. This time, she gives us an up-close look at pro Cheryl Burke’s makeup from last week, and shares how to get it.

For her foxtrot with new partner Drew Carey, Burke wore a green-and-gold dress, which Shteysel wanted to reflect in her eye makeup. After prepping Burke’s skin with a blend of Stila’s “Stay All Day” foundation (“The best foundations I’ve found to withstand the sweat from rehearsals throughout the day,” she says), she sculpted the dancer’s face by highlighting with Clé de Peau concealer in “Ochre” and contouring with Ben Nye’s “Medium” shade. This “creates dimension to Cheryl’s face under the heavy stage lighting,” Shteysel says. Next, she applied a mix of Nars “Night Porter” and Makeup Geek “Cocoa Bear” and “Beaches & Cream” around the outside of the eye, then to make the center pop, she applied Too Faced Glitter Glue and applied MAC glitter in Reflects Bronze on top. For the pro number, Burke wore Kevyn Aucoin “Forever” fuchsia lipstick (above), then switched to MAC “Cyber” (below) for a moodier feel during her competition dance.

And who can blame them, with a process that can take about 80 minutes from start to finish, body makeup included? Over the next few months, Shteysel estimates she and the other makeup artists will go through four to five gallons of spray tanning solution, 20 to 30 bottles of bronzer, 10 large containers of glitter and 200 tubes of mascara. She keeps herself organized with her Z Palette (you can see it in the bottom right corner, above!), invented to keep her many different pans and pots organized and at hand — and now used by all the show’s pros and sold at stores including Sephora. So the answer to the question is about 500 pairs, WOW.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
