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.
