Get in the spirit of the games with a little gold, silver and bronze; red, white and blue.

For fans who may have been more excited about the glitzy Olympics Opening Ceremony, than say, the men's 400-meter freestyle, we give you these Olympics-inspired beauty looks.

Because sporting a little gold, silver and bronze, or even patriotic red, white and blue shades, is the least you can do when the world's elite athletes are sweating it out in Rio, right?

Matte lipsticks, vinyl gloss, metallic gold pigment and micro fine glitter ensure maximum gold shimmer impact. Those less inclined to sport a gilded pout can try gold on their fingers in the form of metallic nail polish. And Pat McGrath’s coveted Lip Kits (launching Aug. 30) will keep you going for the gold through the fall.

Here are a few products to wear your Olympic pride on your lips, nails and lashes.
