Bringing Home the Gold



The eyes of the world will be on The Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games on Friday, July 27, 2012; I was inspired to find my favorite medals… in makeup that is.

For starters, the Eternal Sunshine by L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow ($6.99) is gold and gorgeous. It has a powder-cream formula designed to last and not crease either. If you prefer to bring home the bronze try Trish McEvoy’s Glaze Eye Shadow in Sable Bronze ($16), really makes any color eye pop.


NYX Roll On Shimmer in Platinum ($4.50) This Loose powder has intense shimmer and glitter that you can roll on your eyes, face and body. Use your fingers or makeup brush to blend. If I were wearing a strapless dress, I would use this on the décolleté.

Add a little sparkle with Essie luxeffects. It is a new collection of textured top coats designed to be worn over another polish. Try as gold as it gets which was the one I loved or get in stones($8).


Gold lipstick is beautiful when paired with a bronze eye shadow. Dolce & Gabbana Shine Lipstick #70 ($30) will not disappoint. I would use a nude lip liner before applying and a bit of gloss in the center of your lips to complete this luscious lip.


This summer don’t be afraid to try to shine, you can wear a medal too.
