Friday nights in my small town are something indescribable. There is absolutely no amount of words that could express the thrill, excitement, and overwhelming feeling of home that our football games ooze each week. Being a Varsity Cheerleader is a huge part of my life and one of the biggest commitments I’ve ever made. I feel like I don’t talk about cheer too much which is why I thought a Get Ready With Me would be the perfect way to take you all along and show you what my weeks consist of on a normal basis. I really hope you all enjoy, without further ado lets get on into it.
For our hair we have three options. We can either poof it, french braid it, or leave it in a normal pony tail. We also have the option to curl or straighten the “tail” part of our pony. Most weeks I wear a French braid with a straight, teased pony tail. I usually have one of my teammates braid my hair before pulling it into a high ponytail. I use the Got2BeGlued Hair Wax to keep all of my baby hairs down and in place. Afterwards I put my bow in and then hairspray my braid to keep it in place. I then straighten the remainder of my hair (I usually just touch it up, as it is almost always already straightened). I am then taking sections of my hair and teasing the part closest to my pony tail before spraying it with Got2BeGlued Hairspray. This helps my hair have volume and look higher.
For makeup, we are allowed to wear whatever we would like. I have been doing this same makeup look since my first game of freshman year. I start out by priming my face to ensure that my makeup does not budge throughput the game. I am then taking a matte foundation to keep my face from looking shiny throughput the night. I always apply under eye concealer to brighten up that area and set my whole face with an HD Powder to keep my makeup from having flashbacks while taking pictures. I do a pretty heavy contour and highlight for almost all games (not pictured) this way people from afar can still make out the makeup. I always apply a primer and a Maybelline Color Tattoo to my lids to keep my eyeshadow from creasing. I always always always use Naked One. “Virgin” in the inner corner, “Half Baked” and some sort of glitter on the lid, “Naked” and “Buck” in the crease, “Smog” and “dark horse” in the outer v and dragged under the lash line. I make sure to fill in my brows and apply multiple coats of mascara. i almost always stick with a nude lip, this is a NYX Liquid Lipstick. The only time my Friday night makeup varies is in October, I then usually use Naked 3 and wear a pink lip. I will most likely do an updated version in October.
My school has four uniforms and three bows, so we alternate throughout them as the weeks go on. For shoes I wear Nfinity’s as I feel they are the most comfortable for flying and tumbling. This is a picture of one of them! (yes our mascot is a Hornet lol)
