29 February 2012

With five months to go before the 2012 Olympic Games, all eyes are on the athletes who are going for gold in our fair capital. Step forward Victoria Pendleton, Jessica Ennis and Keri-anne Payne — three beautiful British ladies who are set to take the Games by storm this summer. And each one has the helping hand of some of our favourite beauty brands: Pantene, MaxFactor and Olay. So what better time for Grazia Daily to grill the lovely ladies in the lead up to their Big Moment...

Victoria Pendleton

Victoria Pendleton, the British Olympic and World Champion track cyclist, has been signed up by Pantene Pro-V to champion their briliant Smooth & Sleek range —and with such a luscious head of hair, who can blame them? 'When you're concentrating on your training, the last thing you want to be concentrating on is your hair and your makeup,' Victoria tells us. 'You want to look good, but it's got to be easy so it's important to use the right products to make it as straightforward as possible.'

And three cheers for Keri-anne, Olympic open-water swimmer and London 2012 Olympic Games contender, who is the new face of Max Factor's award winning mascara, False Lash Effect Gold. 'A massive part of my routine is putting on a lick of mascara so it's brilliant to have Max Factor's mascara,' she says. 'It looks like you've spent half an hour putting false lashes on!'

Meanwhile, Olay is supporting Jessica Ennis, world champion heptathlete 2009 and one of Britain's brightest hopes for this year’s Games. 'I shower a lot with all the training so my skin can get quite dry, but also oily because I sweat a lot so it's nice to have a light moisturiser that keeps everything fresh.'
