And no, not win. Because we already know they are bada** athletes so how they won the FIFA World Cup is not the real question. But did you get a look at that sweatproof make up and the on-point hairstyle?
How? Just how? After running miles upon miles and sweating and being all Champion-like, I spied perfect braids, cute hairbands, and even a cateye that looked as good as it belonged on the red carpet. Seriously, talk about putting us normal can’t-kick-a-ball-if-its-not-plural girls to shame (yup, went there… its a post on soccer….should have seen it coming). On a good day, I can’t even get my perfect non-wing eyeliner or boring low ponytail to stay put… while sitting at work… all day… barely moving a muscle. So clearly, the U.S. Women’s Soccer team have magical powers or fairy godmothers. Which one is it and how can I get in on that deal?
In any case, I’ve been inpired to up my summer beauty game. Simply put, if they can get their makeup to hold up through such sweat intensive conditions, well than, Texas heat, stressful meetings, long hours in the sun or the after work hot yoga class should be no obstacle. To prove it, I did a little water-proof, melt-proof and long-lasting beauty research and ran across these make up-wins that should be able to withstand whatever dog, dream or boy you’re chasing that day. So much so, I fear the challenge my makeup wipes will face.
Smokey eyes for days
Sunkissed bunny because waterproof bronzer is a thing
Outlast kissable lips
Can’t touch this blowout (and if you do, my hair will still be perfect)
On the real, congrats to these amazing ladies for bringing home the goooooooooooooooooold and proving that real beauty is and always will be the strength you carry.
