Sacred Beauty Police: Olympics 2012 Makeup Wrapped Up

By Raspberry Blush

We saw lots of colors and glitters on the ladies of the Olympic games. We are talking about the makeup trends, some were artistic to compliment the drama of the routine, some were classic with a touch of sparkle and some just left us breathless. Let’s wrap up the Olympics with a look at the makeup trends that made us want to take out our makeup set and brushes to duplicate through an image gallery.

The official makeup was dabbed ‘Sports chic’, created by award-winning make-up artist and Max Factor UK ambassador Caroline Barnes, the ‘Sports Chic’ make-up look will be worn by all female volunteers, medal bearers and escorts to the athlete and presenters during the 805 victory ceremonies at the 2012 Games, where athletes are presented with their medals.

The look was all about very polished flawless skin, full of glow with well groomed brows, lightly blush contoured cheeks with complementing glossed lips and subtle eye makeup in purple and gold. It’s a look you can wear both in the day and the night with ease.

But we also saw the Olympians in bold reds and bright pink lips, peachy and pink blushed cheeks and very dramatic eye makeup. The brows were well groomed arches, thin curves, soft angular and naturally thick. Beauty bloggers were not far from the Olympic scene inspired by the sports, the national flags and the athletes themselves, here is my pick of the best of the beauty bloggers, golden eyelids; red,pink and patriotic lips.

So what do you guys think?

Do we love it …or loathe it?
