Alicia Sacramone Talks About Gymnastics Beauty

Meet Alicia Sacramone, Olympic Beauty


The 2012 London Olympics kick off on July 27, but the US team members are already in game mode. We caught up with gymnast Alicia Sacramone, Team USA's vault expert, to find out what it's like to be a professional gymnast day to day. "A lot of people think we’re younger than we are because we’re in spandex and we’re little," Alicia says. "So all the time people are like, 'How old are you? Are you 14, 15?' And I’m like, 'I’m 24.'"

When it comes to the makeup gymnasts are known for, the shades aren't a spur-of-the-moment decision, and not every beauty product is welcome. "We’re not allowed to have colored nail polish when we’re competing," Alicia told us. As for color palettes, "It’s kind of a process," she admits. "You pick out your leotard and your warm-up suit a couple months in advance. Then I base my makeup off that." Typically, the P&G Beauty spokes-athlete can be seen wearing the brand's makeup, especially their lip gloss and stain, on the mat. "I try to have my eye shadows matching my leotard," Alicia adds. "That's one of the big things."
