FSU vs Miami
MAKEUP... AND FOOTBALL? OH, YES!
Okay, makeup, fashion and beauty fans, you're probably thinking, "Oh man, it's that time of year again," while football fans - especially college football fans - are thinking, "Thank God football season is BACK!"
Now, you are probably wondering why I, makeup artist SAMELIA, am writing about college football? What's the connection?
Well, it is because I want to inform everyone that it is because I would like to inform everyone that there is more makeup preparation then you can even imagine when it comes to football!
From the Marching bands playing their music, players practicing intensely for weeks prior to the season opening game, cheerleaders cheering, and fans figuring out how they can show the most spirit possible, college football is a full-fledged PRODUCTION on game day! All of which is on display on game day, with fans and cheerleaders - even players - making up their faces (and bodies in some instances) through tattooing, body painting, character and beauty makeup faces. It does not matter if you're male or female, on the big day, people come together in spirit, love for their team, and it's all expressed through makeup!
Now, for the college football enthusiast (well, any sports fan for that matter), rivalries run deep, and this weekend we get one of the best ones at the start of the season, Florida State University (FSU) and University of Miami! When it comes to THIS college football rivalry, this Miami-born and bred gal happens to be an FSU alum and if anyone understands major theater production played out in a major college football stadium, I do!
Just take a look:
These photos are from one of FSU's biggest Rivals the Miami Hurricanes. If you want to see makeup and possibly feel how intense and passionate the fans are at these events, be sure to tune into ESPN this Monday, September 7 at 8pm ET, and check out the latest installment in this storied rivalry. And for those of you who have never watched or do not follow football, it will be time well spent and broaden your thoughts surrounding how makeup and football collide!!!
GOODLUCK TO THESE GUYS...
