The life of a ballerina is a sweaty one, and that meant lots of touchups required throughout the filming. Here are some techniques Judy and Margie used to keep the actress's makeup in place:
- "Most people are a bit intimidated by pancake makeup and they dismiss it as 'old fashioned,' but it can be really beautiful if done properly," explained Judy. A spray sealant was used on top of the pancake makeup to set it.
- MAC's Paint Pots ($17), Powerpoint Eye Pencils ($15), and Pigments ($20) were also used for long-wearing results, and can easily be used in the "real world," too.
