If I had known about the balletcore trend when I was five, I would have been all in. Obsessed with all things flouncy and pink, but not loving the concept of exercise, you can absolutely sign me up for anything that’s giving the 2000 hit film Center Stage without the bruises and calorie counting. Enter the balletcore trend – a pretty, romantic, pink soft makeup glow as if you’ve been frolicking across a stage. This makeup and fashion trend perfectly combines two iconic vibes, y2K makeup and athleisure.


So throw on some ballet flats and twirl your way to this pink ballet aesthetic starring our Morphe Aurascape Collection.

Set Your Balletcore Base

The balletcore trend makeup base is typically glowy, flushed and youthful – like a workout without the work. Start by misting clean skin with our Continuous
Prep & Set Mist+, then apply Morphe Lightform Extended Hydration Foundation with your fingertips or a damp beauty sponge for a sheer radiance. Follow up with the Morphe 2 Hide & Peak Concealer to brighten and conceal any imperfections.

Flush it Out for Cheeks & Lips

The balletcore trend is all about soft pink makeup and a subtle flush that starts at the cheeks and ends at eyes. No matter what, keep it sheer and ethereal. For the eyes, use the Aurascape 6-Piece Vegan face & Eye Brush Set to sweep on the light, shimmery shades from the Morphe 35Y Aurascape Artistry Palette. Cover the eyelid with Pastel Projection (a matte baby pink), then apply Celestial (a candy pink shimmer) to the outer corners of the lid. Press Simply Divine (a cream shimmer) into the center of the lid to complete the balletcore eye makeup look. For cheeks, buff Pastel Projection into the apples or in a C-shape around your eyes, then top with Simply Divine as a highlighter.

Create a Balletcore Lip

To tie the whole balletcore trend look together, choose a lip shade that matches your cheeks and lips. For the Morphe Aurascape Collection, we created three unique Dripglass Glazed High Shine Lip Gloss shades. Choose from Stargaze, a white shimmer with silver pearl, Frosé Bliss, an iridescent pink-violet shimmer, or Cosmic Coral, a warm coral shimmer with gold pearl. Any of these three juicy, high-shine finished lip glosses would pull together a perfectly pretty balletcore look. Finish off with a final spritz of our Continuous Prep & Set Mist+. Now twirl on.
