5 Chic Team Colours to Work Into Your Makeup

5 Chic Team Colours to Work Into Your Makeup

A new way to cheer for your favourite sports team: coordinating makeup with team colours!

By: Amber Katz

There’s nothing like team spirit! Sports jerseys can be mildly intimidating — even if your game-watching venue is a stadium or a sports-themed restaurant. Don’t fret — there are plenty of other ways to support your team. I’m a firm believer in stacking the decks in your team's favour by coordinating your beauty hues accordingly.

Whether you're rooting for gold, blue, red, purple or orange, this guide will help you cheer on your favourite athletes through your eyes, lips and nails — sans jersey (or perhaps in addition, if you’re hard-core!). Here they are, organized by colour. #winning

A thick swipe of verdant liner on the top and bottom with a glorious ’60s wing in a crayon eight-pack iteration of green is a sophisticated, fashion-forward way to show team spirit.

For a little eye-hand coordination, gloss up your talons with a team-focused green colour like CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Midnight Magic, a medium green shade.

If you’re cheering for a purple team, lucky you! I wear this shade even when I'm not rooting for the home team. Try CoverGirl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Violet Voltage just on the top lashes in a broad stripe for a pretty purple effect. For your mega-supportive manicure, two coats of CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Vio-last is a properly pigmented purple.

Whether your friends are rocking royal, navy or light blue, aqua-hued liners are totally on-trend, so why not show cosmetic support with CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Eye Brightening Eyeliner in Radiant Sapphire (an excellent stand-in for navy) Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Blue Boom or Ink It! in Aquamarine Ink. As for nails, rock CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Out of the Blue (medium shade) or Eternal Oceans if your team's blue skews deeper.

Red is the easiest sports team hue to wear — such a classic! Show your support by slicking on a swipe of CoverGirl LipPerfection LipColour in Hot (lasts so long, you won't even have to reapply in overtime). Add a matching mani in CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Lasting Love.

Go fierce with a little CoverGirl Blast FlipStick Lipcolor in Stunner. Coordinate your digits with a quick manicure (no base or topcoat necessary so you go from bare to "Go team, go" in minutes) in CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Go-go Mango, a hot orange colour.
