Sunday night football begins this weekend complete with halftime by the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. Two of the cheerleaders–Angela Rena of Australia and Sydney Durso–offer their tips and tricks for creating long-lasting Farrah Fawcett hair and glowing makeup.
Use sulfate-free shampoo and always rinse your hair in cold water.
For natural-looking brows, first use a brow pencil that matches your current hair color. Follow with an angled-brush dipped in your regular finishing face powder. Sydney uses her daily Chanel pressed powder.
To avoid ringlets and achieve glam curls, vary the size of your hair-sections. Angela uses larger portions below and above her head while reserving smaller sections in the middle.
To achieve HD perfection on the huge screen at Cowboys Stadium, Sydney recommends warming foundation on the back of her hand before stippling it into her pores with a dual-bristled makeup brush.
At the crown of her head, Angela sprays each section with dry shampoo to remove root-oil and guarantee more lift. She cautions against rushing. By curling before applying her makeup, each portion has a chance to cool and last through many performances of a four-hour game.
For a summery glow year-round, use a fluffy brush to dust your bronzer at the temples and under both your cheekbones and chin.
