It's a fact: The ladies of the "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 9 tour are drop-dead gorgeous. (And super-talented, too!) Lucky for us, they shared some of their best beauty tips. Read on for the tricks they use to make sure they always turn heads.
“I love Kiehl's products for my skin. I use the facial wash, toner and moisturizer. My curly hair tends to be on the dry side, so leave-in conditioner is a must, as well as a gentle mousse. I recommend Fredric Fekkai and Paul Mitchell products.” —Eliana Girard
“My go-to look is natural and bright. One thing I really focus on is making my eyes look bright even from the back row. Make sure that the middle of your face is light and the outside has bronzer blush.” —Tiffany Maher
“To help my makeup last longer, I use moisturizer mixed with foundation. It creates a strong base that holds all night.” —Lindsay Arnold
“You don't need a lot of makeup. The less you use, the more it will pop! Simplicity is the key to a healthy, glowing face. Wash your face daily and moisturize afterward. You won't be disappointed!” —Witney Carson
“When dancing on tour you have to remember that your hair and skin need off days too! So when you have a day off, totally take advantage of the opportunity to keep your skin and hair clean!” —Audrey Case

This is it! It's the performance finale and it's time for Eliana, Cyrus, Tiffany and Chehon to show America why they each deserve to be named America's Favorite Dancer (plus the top guy and girl land a spot on the December cover of Dance Spirit!).
With such awesomely talented dancers—and heavy hitter Rob Marshall sitting on the judges' panel—it's hard to nail down just five moments that made us flash our jazz hands at the TV screen. So is it OK if we do something a little different? How about a quick rundown of all the evening's routines, described in Twitter-style 140 characters or fewer? Cool, glad you're on board.
Cyrus and Eliana, Paso Doble: Eliana is technical & gorgeous. Cyrus dragged her around the floor & it looked so fun. Cyrus wore a dress. Mary said "You delivered." Yes!
Tiffany & Will Wingfield, Jazz: Dislike: Tiffany's garter. Like: Tiffany's commitment. Love: Will. Not super exciting, but well executed. Cat said "That was joyful." Agree!
Eliana & Chehon, Ballet: OMG a legit classical ballet routine!!! Pointe shoes! A tiara! Pink tights! Love love love. Fantastic. Standing O from the jidges!
Tiffany & Cyrus, Lyrical Hip Hop: Now THAT'S full-out! T&C killed that Tessandra Chavez choreo! Mary called Tiffany a "little beast" & Rob complimented their "abandon."
Top 4, Group Routine: Each in his/her own style, which is cool. A bit disconnected as a group, but lots of lovely little solo moments. Not outstanding, but cute.
Eliana Solo: This girl is a star. You know that by now, right? Great partner, exceptional soloist, fantastic technique & genuine personality.
Chehon & Allison Holker, Contemporary: It's so hard not to watch Allison, but man oh man, Chehon is worth your attention. And that kiss at the end! tWitch, don't be mad!
Interruption: Mary just said Stacey Tookey was "Nemmy Ominated." She means Emmy Nominated, right? Right. (And well-deserved. Tookster, if we can call you that, you're the best. One-handed lifts? Seriously? Well played, S-Tooks, well played. Now just let me know which nickname you'd like to go ahead with. K good choreography, love you, bye.)
Eliana & Tiffany, Burlesque to Broadway Or Something: Love the girl power. Adore both these ladies. Not sure we needed the pole dancing. Nigel loved it. Naturally. Oh goodness.
Cyrus Solo: Is he the BEST male dancer still on the show? Nope. But does America love this guy? Clearly. And in his element, he's unstoppable.
Tiffany Solo: This girl is a fighter. She's strong, full-out & so invested in every routine. Also, she's stinkin' adorable. Want to put her in my pocket!
Cyrus & Chehon, Jazz?: Love dude duets! So much strength. Nigel said Cyrus is his "favorite person on the show" & Chehon is his "favorite dancer on the show."
Jean Sok, Guest Performance: He only has one full leg. Crazy impressive. Crazy awesome. Crazy inspiring. Jean, I bow down to you.
Chehon Solo: Danny Tidwell 2.0. But a little more charismatic & with the highest jumps EVER. Stellar performer, great technician, truly stunning.
Eliana & Alex Wong, Contemporary: Dream Team reunited! This was AWESOME. Just...awesome. These two together are un-stinkin-stoppable. Wow. Nigel's fave of the night!
OK, Nigel just said Eliana is his favorite of all-time on this series. That's a compliment if I've ever heard one!
Sorry sorry sorry, back to 140 characters.
Tiffany & Chehon, Rumba: Sexy time! The curtains! The white dress! It was so sweet & innocent. These two nailed it.
Cyrus & tWitch, Animation: Madd Chadd cameo!!! Didn't love this one as much as I'd expected to. Oh well. Still love them both!
So basically, last night's episode just made us love every member of the Top 4 even more. What a strong, deserving group. We hope you voted, America—and we'll proudly feature your top guy and top girl on our December cover.
Fess up: Who'd you pick up the phone for last night? Chehon? Cyrus? Eliana? Tiffany?
