One our favorite athletes who participated in the 2012 Summer Olympics is the redhead gold medalist summer, Missy Franklin.

Not only is Missy an amazing athlete, but she is an excellent role model for all gingers. Her fiery confidence is contagious and inspiring and we couldn’t ask for a better ambassador for redheads on the world stage.

No matter if Missy is having a last minute interview or hitting the red carpet, she is always sure to look beautiful but still sporty. Get her look with easy, do-it-yourself steps:

 

1. The Natural Look: Missy always has a flawless look and it’s so easy to look the same. Choose a loose powder that will cover up any skin imperfections, fits perfectly in your sports bag and one that is great for light complexions, like Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose PowderAlso, opt for a lipgloss that will make your look complete and beautiful. We love Bare Escentuals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss because it is natural looking but adds a great sparkle.

2. Gorgeous Teeth: Missy’s teeth are always sparkling white and it’s a good thing because it is the one thing the audiences around the world notice (besides her amazing swimming skills)! Do you want to make your teeth white like hers in a matter of days? Use Crest White Strips Premium. You’ll notice your red hair will stand out even more because of your beautifully white teeth.

3. Add Some Spunk:  Missy is always sure to wear different nail colors and pearl earrings in order to add some femininity and style to her look. Choose some awesome nail polish colors to spunk up your look. Choose colors like OPI Blue My Mind and RGB Nails Too Red. And rock some gorgeous pearl stud earrings that are sport friendly.

4. Protect That Skin: As a redhead, Missy is always sure to apply sunscreen (especially when she swims outside!). Choose one that is great for athletes like the Banana Boat Sport Performance Sunscreen in SPF 30.

Thank you Missy for not only representing our nation, but all awesome redheads around the world.

Keep Rocking it like a Redhead, girl!
