Favorite Products of Real Burlesque Performers

We asked our featured burlesque performers to share their favorite and go-to products for self care, costume creation and otherwise preparing to rock in on stage. It’s a lot more than glitter and pasties (but, of course we love those too!).


Ladie P. Cumeleon's Go-to Products

Pooplunch False Eyelashes

Pooplunch False Eyelashes

I really like these lashes! I found that they are easy to put on and super fluffy and open. Great for the stage and also super affordable.

Elmer's Craftbond Multi-Purpose Spray as a Pasty Adhesive

A go-to for many burlesque dancers, it’s cheap and easy to use. When it comes to putting pasties on this is what I use. I stand by this. They do not fly off when twirling, at least from my experience.

Pro tip: once you spray it on let it get “tacky” for about 20 seconds then place the pasty on.

Aneco Plus Size Fishnets

Fishnets are a fun addition to the costume to show off your legs. I like to spray my legs with a little spray adhesive (very lightly) right before pulling up the fishnets. Then to finish i usually spray glitter hairspray over the fishnets and my legs. It adds a little extra sparkle when on stage. 


Corsets are hard to buy online sometimes. Make sure you have your exact measurements and that the seller offers a size chart with more than just standard sizing such as L or XXL. 

NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Lip Lingerie XXL Matte Liquid Lipstick

For me a matte base lipstick is the perfect foundation for layering. I like to start my matte lips with a lip liner that matches. Once I have the liner and lipstick on, I will apply glitter glue to my lips and add the glitter to the glue. This matte lipstick brand is affordable and lasts!

MAEPEOR 4 Colors Glitter Lip Kit

Glitter lips are almost a must have in burlesque. Not only do they make your performance fun, but really make your photos stand out. 

KISS Strip Eyelash

Eyelash glue is a must when it comes to applying lashes before performing. No one wants their lashes flying off halfway through a performance! I have used this one many times and it never lets me down. 


Wigs are always a must when it comes to my performances. It’s part of the fun in embodying another character and it makes for a quick, but dramatic change of looks between acts.

Wisteria LeWicked Favorite Burlesque Products:

Neutrogena Gentle OilFree Eye Makeup Remover Cleanser

After applying all of that glue and glitter you’re going to want a nice cleanser to wash it off with. I like this Neutrogena eye makeup remover that works like a charm in removing false lashes after a show. 

Origins Ginzing Gel Moisturizer

I love using this product as my morning moisturizer because it makes my skin feel hydrated and refreshed while also waking up my senses.  

NYX Wonderstick Contour

It makes contouring so easy and quick while leaving a beautiful seamless blend. It looks natural while accentuating the natural shapes in your face.

MAC Macstack Mascara

The shape of the brush allows you to get every part of the lash without it getting all over the lid. It's also a great formula that doesn't clump easily.

The Ethereal Peach Phryne Favorite Products

Velamo Advanced Eyelash Growth Serum

I just found out about this a few days ago, but if you're having trouble growing your eyebrows or eyelashes, consider investing in an eyebrow serum. I had no idea that they existed, but they really do work! I like the brands NourishBrow and WooLash.
But, if you’re looking for a more affordable product, I’ve also heard really good things about VELAMO ADVANCED Eyelash Growth Serum, which is less than $20.00 on Amazon but has amazing reviews! Like this one: “I bought this because I was so desperate to grow back my lashes after having them completely damaged by a lash extension tech. I honestly didn't have high hopes for it for some reason. I bought it after my new lash lady suggested I get a lash serum. I started using it immediately every day after my visit with my new lash lady. Fast forward to 2 weeks later when I went to get a fill. She said not only do my lashes look longer and stronger but I have a ton of new growth. Im very impressed with this lash serum and I 100% recommend… I will also let you in on a little secret. I’ve been using it on my eyebrows and I have noticed them getting fuller too. 😃”

Burlesque Performer Ivory Woodpecker Favorite Product

Eminence Stone Crop Hydrating Mist

I’m not at all knowledgeable about makeup and beauty products (I just learned how to fill in my eyebrows last year) but the Eminence Stone Crop Hydrating Mist feels and smells so good that I use it almost every day!
