We’re loving the Olympics so far—so many exciting events and tons of American pride. (Ryan Lochte, even though the 400-meter relay didn’t go so well, we still think you’re the bees knees.) But as serious makeup enthusiasts, our attention was totally diverted when we saw this amazing eye look from Brazilian gymnast Daniele Hypolito.
Major kudos to the 27-year-old who rocked an incredibly patriotic flag-inspired design while she was competing. It was essentially a very dramatic smoky eye, with green at the base across the entire lid, yellow as a highlight in the middle, and blue as the blended color on the outer corner. We’re not sure that we could rock this look ourselves (even if we’d like to try it in red, white and blue), but we do love how she added some more personality to her ensemble.
