The 2012 Olympics in London, England inspire all of us in one way or another. If you are not physically talented enough to be inspired to become a professional gymnast, archer, boxer, etc. then why not get inspired through your makeup by integrating hot new shades in gold, bronze, and silver? You can easily accomplish this feat by adding some Olympic-inspired color to your lip gloss, eyeshadow, face, or even with hair products.
This is a multi-tasking product that gives you a beautiful shimmer wherever you choose. Jane Iredale’s 24-Karat Gold Dust comes in a variety of colors including Gold, Silver and Bronze so you can achieve your Olympic dreams with ease. As a bonus it’s made in the USA, and you can literally use this product anywhere you want some shimmer including your eyes, cheeks, lips, shoulder, décolleté area, arms, legs, and even your hair.
Sometimes Bronze is better than Gold, especially in the world of bronzing powder. This year for the Olympics you can easily reach Bronze status with the help of Merle Norman and their new Bronzing Powder in Beach Side and Pool Side. This bronzer is not your ordinary bronzer by giving your skin a 3D color that reflects lights and looks natural; never fake. It’s absolutely perfect for summertime, but will also carry you through the fall as well as give you a quick pick-me-up in the winter.
When it comes to Olympic Gold and Silver why not add a little shine to your eyes with a pop of metallic eyeliner? L’Oreal makes a really good metallic liner in their HIP line, and you can score it in either Gold (Gold Charge) or Silver (Silver Lighting). You can show your Olympic spirit through your eyes, and what better way to do so than with this liner and a colorful smokey eye?
Yet another made in the USA product from Jane Iredale that offers a more natural product while also giving you a winning Olympic-inspired pout with their golden lip gloss. Of course their Pure Gloss is available in a wide variety of shades, but gold tends to be a hard-to-find shade and it just so happens that they have it available for you in Gold Fling. If you have never used Jane Iredale’s lip gloss before then you are in for a treat because it is not tacky or sticky, gives wonderful shine, and plumps your lips naturally.
Nail polish and quick nail art is the quickest and easiest way to show your support for the Olympic Games. Nails Inc. gives your nails a fun and fabulous Silver with their Trafalgar Square shade, but it also turns your ho-hum silver nails into fun nail art within seconds. The overall color looks like you went to a salon, but the price will tell you otherwise because this nail polish/nail art is far more affordable than a professional application.
Thanks to Maybelline you can celebrate the Olympic Games in Gold, Bronze and Silver hues without breaking the bank. Their 24HR Cream Gel Shadow works to stay on all day and then some while giving your lids a bright and very vivid pop of color. The easy to apply cream formula will have people wondering where you got those peepers. The colors will quickly and easily show your support of the Olympic while also showing off your sense of style through hot metallic shades. And if a smokey eye is your thing then you’ll be able to pull it off even easier thanks to Maybelline.
Add some temporary “Gold” to your locks just in time for the Olympic Games with the help of Hair Flares. Their Yellow Spark shade is perfect for the games, and for showing your support of the athletes. The best thing is that the color is temporary, so you can have a day of celebration and then wash it out the next. This no-commitment color allows you to have fun with your hair for the Summer Olympics, and then lets you go back to your professional look for work the next day without a hassle.
