MaxFactor London 2012 Opening Ceremony ‘Sports Luxe’ Look

Last Friday night, the most amazing show on Earth was given a kick-start with one of the most amazing opening ceremonies ever seen. The Olympics finally came to London in 2012 and the ceremony was a feast for the eyes… Giant rings being forged from steel, dancing nurses, an inflatable Lord Voldemort, music from The Arctic Monkeys and a journey through the ages with a couple of David Bowies thrown in for good measure. MaxFactor are an official partner of the games, providing makeup for all the athletes and volunteers taking part in London 2012. In preparation of the Opening Ceremony, they made this video for all the participants to show them how to perfect the ‘Sports Luxe’ look in only a few steps. It’s a brilliant video and a brilliant glimpse at what the amazing volunteers would have seen in the build-up to the most exciting day of their lives. Take a look and maybe have a go at getting in the Olympic spirit yourself…
