USA Rhythmic National Team Gymnast, Stasya Generalova’s exotic look and creature-esque performance style has earned her the nickname “Black Panther” among her peers. So, when she popped over to RÓEN HQ one afternoon, Nikki was excited to create a dramatic, performance-ready look, using none other than our 52° Cool Palettes’s gunmetal-metallic shadow, MEOW.
Shockingly, none of us at RÓEN HQ are Olympic gymnasts, and subsequently had had no idea how significant of a role Stasya's makeup plays in her performances. We were so impressed to learn that because she began traveling for gymnastics at 11 years old without her parents, she would have to apply her makeup by herself. She and her mom would create her looks together at home, and Stasya would bring photos of herself on the road to use as a reference. After nearly a decade, she has definitely developed a true mastery of applying liquid liner and a fiercely, fiery, eye look…. and all under twenty minutes.
