It takes a strong woman to propel herself into the air and fly across an ice rink on nothing more than two razor-thin blades. Just ask Tanith (Belbin) White, a five-time U.S. champion in ice dancing. Similar to ballroom dancing, the pairs sport involves White jumping, twirling, and hurtling across the ice whilst also being carried or flung sky high by her partner. And somehow, she makes it look easy.
While she may have retired from competitive skating in 2010, she’s still showing that same poise as a TV commentator. And, of course, she continues to skate professionally for performances at ice shows while also being a dedicated wife and mother.
Since she’s constantly performing and appearing on camera, White needs to look the part. That means some pretty involved beauty moves. “Makeup plays a bigger role in both of my jobs, maybe more than it does for the average person,” she explains. As an on-air host, she has to look professional with makeup that can stand up to hours of filming under hot, bright lights.
“Everything that I wear has to be long-lasting and waterproof,” she explains. “I don’t have time from the start of my day to the end to start over with my makeup.” Since foundation is one of her ride-or-die products, it’s no wonder she’s a fan of Maybelline New York Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation. It takes your makeup to the next level with high-pigment coverage in a concentrated formula that stays put for hours on end. Or more specifically, 24 hours of long-lasting coverage — something White relies on during her days that can bounce from early rising, on-camera assignments, and the occasional workout (when she can fit one in).
