Ready for Rio? I am looking forward to all the festivities the Olympic Games bring, and cheering on my favorite teams and athletes all summer long. Sports and makeup aren't usually associated, but it's a new world, right? I love bending the office rules and wearing some colorful makeup to cheer on my favorites. So here's 15 patriotic beauty tutorials to rock in honor of the Rio Olympics.
Whether or not you're a sports fan, chances are you'll be following along with what's happening in Rio this summer. It's a welcome, worldly group activity that promotes healthy competition and fierce determination.
