    where do you buy tanner?

    ok I've got a competition coming up and I usually buy a bottle from a teacher, but that is not an option right now. I live in a town that does not seem to sell any tanner that works for me so It's going to have to be mail order. The tanner I'm familiar with is Pro tan. Does anyone know who sells that or if there is another tanner that works better?

    Try danceshopper . com They're a very reliable online ballroom shop, and the last time I was on the site, I remember seeing pro-tan for sale. Their prices are also quite competitive too.

    I go to the Stephanie Make Up Store, the actual store and purchase St. Topaz mouse. It's instant, literally no smell and takes one minute to dry.
    If your desperate you might try mixing bronzer powder into your favorite moisturizing lotion and applying. - therefore no streaks and such when applied.

    I usually use Neutrogena Micro-Mist. The other tanning product I used to use gave me awful allergic reactions :( :(

    It wasn't Pro Tan though. ;)

    where do you buy tanner?

    well I found some online site that had it. Funny thing is it was a health/ beauty store. I am crossing my fingers that it works out.

    I've found the best price for ProTan on BodyBuilder dot com. Their shipping is pretty quick too. I haven't ordered from them in a while, but your should def query bodybuilding web sites for ProTan.

    Sorry, know this is kinda off topic but, why not get a natural tan rather than use a tanner? Seems rather better to me ><

    yes, off topic...but how 'bout skin damage and skin cancer?

    now back to our original topic...

    I like Sun by Gisele (?). I can buy it at my local Ulta store, but also on line.

    Competition/ Performance Makeup

    I really LOVE putting on comp/ performance makeup! It's like working with art materials, except it's on your face :D

    I'm curious to know how other people apply their makeup, what products they use, etc. Maybe I can get some new ideas!

    I'm a fan of Sugarpill Cosmetics. They have extremely bright and sparkly pigments that are fairly cheap. It's about $8 per compact of color, and this stuff is so pigmented that it would last you a year or two if you used it EVERY DAY. I love it! Hottopic sells bright pigments too, but I prefer Sugarpill (unfortunately, Sugarpill isn't sold in stores).

    I usually line my eye with black eyeliner (the best liquid I've ever found is by Body Rage, and I bought it at Spencers), and then line that with some glitter or bright pigment. I usually pick a color scheme of 3 or 4 colors, and make a gradient from my eyelid to brow-bone, and then of course dust it in glitter, because life is better when it sparkles. I also use lash glue to apply rhinestones sometimes to the outer corners of my eyes.

    I also love wacky eyelashes. If anyone is interested in some really cool ones, check out Sephora's line of false lashes. Also, NYX has some pretty cool ones too that are a bit cheaper than Sephora (you can get them at Newbury Comics or Ulta).

    Most of you guys probably use M.A.C products or something similar, but, being a teenager, I tend to shop at places like Spencers and Hottopic :)

    I also dust my eye-shadow with glitter too. Guess if we are ever at the same competition we will recognize each other. :)

    On one of these older make up threads (I can't remember which one!), people were looking for pcitures of comp makeup. While looking for something else, I came across this website: http://en [dot]

    While it's not ballroom specific, there is some very crazy makeup that might spark eveyrone's imagination for color and shape.

    There's also some interesting hair dos.

    Wow thats so much preparation!

    All I do is this:

    Morning two days before the comp - exfoliate in the shower.
    That night apply first coat of tan.
    Shower off excess in the morning.
    Second coat night before competition
    Shower off excess in morning.
    Apply bronzer to give a nice gold sheen

    Off I go - I am naturally very very pale skinned and I come out VERY dark

    I buy bottles of solution that are used for professional spray tanning (like your mystic tan I think) and apply it myself at home with a plastic bowl and a sponge. Works like a dream.

    MissKitty, where do you buy your tanning solution? What kind of bronzer?

    what brand do you use? And what's the price range and size of each bottle? I've been looking for a good base tanner... and L'oreal ones aren't doing the trick...

    If anyone knows what Natalie Paramonov uses on her legs, please share! I was at OSB and watched pro Latin. Her legs were Goddess-like! The combination of good genetics and the product(s) she used on her legs made them look like sparkling rivers of gold.
