Donuts and Makeup!
The mouth watering and highly entertaining Donut Showdown on The Food Network Canada began on April 2nd 2013!
It’s 7am and Victoria Fedosoff, Maggie Ng and I (Jenna Sardo) set up our makeup stations to get the 4 fantastic talent ready for a wild day of donut judging!
First things first: we never forgot to matify the talent’s faces with both Pur Minerals oil control gel and Lise Watier or Urban Decay eye primer! The hot lights and detailed HD world will not be forgiving for us makeup wizards. We never went a day without these products because we knew we would be squirming with frustration behind the camera if we ever saw shine on our talent’s faces!
Our second ‘must-have’ item was blotting powders! In the 30 seconds we had (not even) to run in and blot the judges faces to make sure they looked spectacular we didn’t have the time or the patience for a blotting powder that we couldn’t rely on 100 percent! This led Victoria and I to make sure we used one of 3 of these high performance blotting powders:
Pur Minerals ‘Balancing Act Oil Control Powder’
Glo Minerals rice starch oil absorbing powder in ‘matte’ and ‘perfecting powder’
Cover FX blot powders in light and medium.
We definitely loved to bronze our talent! We only used Hula bronzer by Benefit for the men and Glo minerals bronzers in Sunkiss and Sunlight! These bronzers do not turn orange with the temperature and acidity of the skin and looked thin and flawless all day long.
My go-to lipstick for Judge Maggie McKewon (Recipe to Riches and….) was Dior’s Rouge Dior #555 Dolce Vita Pink or Nars’ ‘Niagara’.
The stay-in-place and trustworthy eyeliner I would rely on was either Dior’s ‘black waterproof’ or Mac’s ‘Engraved’. I always set this eyeliner with Makeup Forever’s dark brown eyeshadown in matte espresso #166.
The Set was so fun on Donut Showdown. Donuts, Makeup, lots of laughs, good company and cafe mochas! Who could ask for more?!
This season of Donut Showdown has wrapped but stay tuned for rerun’s Tuesday’s at 11pm on The Food Network Canada!
