Inspiration: Model Call

A Day in the Life
of Misty Copeland

Misty Copeland takes us behind the scenes of her daily
routine and reveals the foundation that takes her from
morning to night.

“Iwant to look like me, and I think that’s beautiful.” And Misty Copeland, Estée Ambassador and American Ballet Theatre principal ballerina, is no stranger to disguise—in fact, she embodies a different character every night of the week when she’s performing. But when it comes to the foundation of her look—literally and figuratively—Copeland explains that she always reaches for Double Wear, shade 4W1 Honey Bronze. It not only captures her exact skin tone (so she can feel like herself even when she’s playing someone else), but it stays with her from morning rehearsals through nighttime performances, giving her the confidence that her makeup is one less thing she needs to worry about.

Beauty means acceptance. It’s strength, vulnerability and just being comfortable with being you.

Watch above as she takes us backstage from dance class to press photos to
performance-ready. No matter what she’s doing, her true self takes center stage.
