This Olympic season, I’m drawing my makeup inspiration from the gorgeous women who inspire us through their competitive spirit, dedication and courage to achieve their sporting dreams. To start off, here are the William sisters.
I have been cheering them on since the 2000 Olympics, they sparked my interest in tennis and my short lived attempt on the sport. They have come a long way together and they still make a powerful team. Even though they share the court in the Olympics women’s double, each makes a unique fashion statement.
Venus has been spotted looking bold in red lips and blue winged eyeliner (to compliment her braids) in a press conference but she has pulled off a bare face on the court (I bet she wears mascara or semi perm inserts though, her lashes always look camera ready) where as in the same press conference Serena wears black winged eyeliner on the upper lid and a vibrant purple on the lower waterline with nude glossed lips unlike her sister she keeps her black eyeliner on the court. We would however comment on Venus’ eyebrows, even though the trend has gone to a more natural fuller effect, her own brows seem to be a bit lacking in the definition department. Perhaps she should take a few tips from her sister who’s brows are beautifully groomed. It takes a brave dark skinned woman to try blue liner with red lips and she’s managed a decent attempt, but we would have preferred to see either a sheer semi transparent red gloss or bold defined luscious lips. If you’re going to do it, do it well. Sitting next to her sister she seems slightly tacky in comparison not what you would expect from a sporting personality of her calibre. But we give her a nod of approval for taking on this daring look.
We have seen cat eyes, vibrant eye shadows and liners as well as nude and red lips trending in the cat walks and various red carpet events so these two girls are in the right fashion court.
Get into the Olympic spirit the William sisters’ way, they are acing the trends:-)
