Max Factor and Caroline Barnes' Olympic Makeup Design

This week I popped to an Olympic event!! A makeup one! Max Factor and Caroline Barnes have created the official ‘Sports Chic’ makeup design for the London 2012 Victory Ceremony podiums, and this is it..well half of it!

Caroline shared her tips on creating the ‘Sports Chic’ beauty look:

Start with a flawless, glowing base by using Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation. To perfect blemishes where you need extra coverage or for top up perfection, use Max Factor Miracle Touch Foundation

Add a touch of Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush across your cheekbones towards your hairline to create a sophisticated glow

Next, use Max Factor Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel to add definition to your brow. The brush on the end will help shape your brows and remove any excess foundation

Use Max Colour Effect Trio Eye-shadow in Coco Crazy to play with light and dark tones. Place the darkest tone in the socket for wide eyes, or underneath the lower lashes to make small eyes bigger

Use Liquid Effect Pencil in Violet Voltage on the outer corners of the top and bottom lashes; blend outwards with the rubber end to create a feline shape to your eyes

Gorgeous isn't it?

Caroline did a fabulous demo and has created a look that is really easy to achieve, even though she is still desperately trying to show me where my cheekbones are!!! Even after all these years looking in the mirror, I still can't find them!!

So what do you think to Sports Chic? I am going to create it at home soon and I'll show you.

  2. Wow, that is such a gorgeous look! The pictorial breakdown was great. I'd like to pretend that I could pull this one off before a run but sweaty beetroot face is definitely not sports chic ;) xx
