Rumer Willis has been declared the one to beat on this season's Dancing With the Stars, so we had a quick chat with the show's makeup artist, Zena Shteysel, to hear how she helps the 26-year-old get ready to conquer the ballroom!
Read Zena's tips below and make sure to tune in to tonight's episode at 8/7c on ABC!
"'DWTS' is about variety and different styles of dancing so we create looks every week that compliment the style and story behind the dance. We're not aiming to necessarily replicate looks, but create new ones. Rumer may be strong and edgy one week, and innocent and doll-like another week.
This week, Rumer is dancing a Samba and it's disco-themed. I created a gold glittery eye using Scott Barnes Eye Ice in Glitterachi on the lid, and Unum's (a new brand on the rise) gorgeous Copper in the crease and under eye. We topped it with Ardell's 110 and 206 lashes. To complete the '70s disco look I applied a pale peach lip using Makeup Forever 23C lip liner and Stila's Convertible Cream in Petunia on the lips. I place all products in a Z Palette for quick and easy touch-ups on set."

"Rumer hasn't specified anything she HAS to have in her look. She is very open to creating new looks and allowing me as an artist to do my thing."
"The Foxtrot is a Ballroom dance and the Cha-Cha is Latin. We typically create very clean, glamorous looks for ballroom dances that focus on pops of shimmer on the eyes, lots of lashes, and nude or bright lips. Latin dances are sexier and sultry so you'll see darker eye shadows, cat eye liner, and darker lip shades."
