NYCB Ballerinas Spill Their Nutcracker Makeup Secrets

If there's one thing we can't get enough of, it's ballerina makeup tutorials. And this Christmas, Elle has gifted us with an amazing look at five NYCB dancers' Nutcracker looks. Unsurprisingly, these ladies are pros—after all, they dance in around 50 performances, which means lots of time to perfect their looks! From Sugarplum Fairy to Snow, watch these dancers transform before your eyes.
