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
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.
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!
