For those of you Olympic fans who were waiting on pins and needles to find out exactly what the official make-up design would be for athletes and presenter escorts during each of the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games Victory Ceremonies, your wait is over. The design, labeled 'Sports Chic', has been finalized and will be appearing on a TV near you very soon.
And it's not like the Colts fan you see above. This is for real.
The 'Sports Chic' design was created by world renowned make-up artist Caroline Barnes and was created using products by international beauty giant Max Factor. The design was inspired by the official costumes created by Royal College of Art students, Caroline chose purple and gold hues to create a simple, modern beauty design.
"I wanted it to encompass everything the Games are about, so it represents well being; it's natural and fresh and will give each of the wearers a lovely healthy glow," says Caroline.
Items used on this innovative and fascinating design include Max Colour Effect Trio Eye-shadow in Coco Crazy "to play with light and dark tones." According to Caroline, an expert in the products usage, using dark tones in the socket will create wide eyes, while placing the product underneath lower lashes will make small eyes bigger. She also recommends placing the brand's Miracle Touch Creamy Blush across cheekbones towards the hairline to create a "sophisticated glow."
Max Factor, whose parent company is Procter & Gamble and has Worldwide Olympic Partner status, joins other beauty brands on Olympic-themed campaigns for 2012. Global haircare mark Pantene selected female athletes from across the globe such as US swimmer Natalie Coughlin and British cyclist Victoria Pendleton to become health and beauty ambassadors, while world champion British heptathlete Jessica Ennis has fronted commercials for skincare range Olay Essentials.
