Go for the Gold!
As Olympians compete for medals in London, cheer on their quests for gold with makeup, nails and skin to match.
With the Summer Olympics a few weeks away, my competitive nature is in full-gear, and I'm hoping for all golds for my team. In its honor, I've gathered my favorite medal-worthy beauty products to boost your spirits.
Get an instant sun-kissed glow with a swirl of Stila Set & Bronze Powder ($34). This vitamin-enriched, three-in-one compact combines sheer, lightweight setting powders to illuminate, mattify and bronze for the most natural-looking color.
Smooth on Oribe Gold Pomade ($49) for glossy, gold-streaked strands. Formulated with vitamin B5 and Keravis to strengthen, thicken and moisturize, crushed gold minerals leave behind instant glamour.
A slender pencil with an angled liner on one side and a self-dispensing eyeshadow on the other, Susan Posnick Cosmetics COLOREYEDEFINE in Bronze/Copper ($26) will make eyes pop. Depending on your mood, go subtle with just a swipe of liner or add a flush of color to the entire lid for striking drama.
Glo-minerals Gloss in Star Struck ($16) will perk up your pout, and give lips the love they need. An antioxidant blend of vitamins A, C, and E and green tea extract condition while leaving long-lasting shine minus the stickiness.
Give your face the gold treatment with Sephora Tinted Self-Tanning Face Gel ($16). The easy-to-use brush tip ensures an even, flawless looking tan and moisturized, radiant skin.
Go luxe without spending big and swipe on a coat of L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail in Because You're Worth It ($6). In addition to high-wattage shine and color-intensity, Colour Riche keeps nails strong and healthy for up to 10 days.
