Introducing: Secrets of a Swing Dancer!

I'd like to share with you one of my newest projects, which I have named "Secrets of a Swing Dancer"! Secrets of a Swing Dancer will be a series featuring makeup products under my ultimate stress test- hours of furious lindy hopping.

For your viewing pleasure, here's a lindy video. It's a bit long- about 10 minutes- but I suggest you watch at least the first 4 minutes so you can see some of my favorite teachers in action. Have I mentioned  how excited I am to take classes from several of them at Lindy on the Rocks this year?! They taught me so much last year.

And let me tell you, lindy hopping and I are a sweaty, hardworking, go big or go home kind of team. Maybe it's from my years of serious ballet training, but I give it my all on the dance floor. I love it. As you can imagine, a handful of hours spent lindy hopping tests the limits of my cosmetics. They have to be sweatproof, rub-proof, and make me look like a lindy hop champ. The last thing I want to be worrying about while dancing is if my makeup has dripped down to my knees. (Sexy, right?)

So, I'll be sharing with you products that I know have my lindy seal of approval, and testing some new ones and telling you how they hold up. If there are any products you're interested in having me test out in this fashion, please let me know in the comments! I'll do my best to get as many tested as possible.

Dancing and makeup, two of my favorite things.
