If you watched the Olympics or are a Dancing With the Stars fan, you’re familiar with the adorable 19-year old Shawn Johnson. How could you not be?
“The youngest ever competitor on Dancing with the Stars, 17 year-old Olympian Shawn Johnson was the gold medalist in balance beam at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing where she also earned 3 silver medals in the team, floor exercise and individual all-around categories. The current two-time National Champion and high-school Junior Johnson appeared on a limited edition Cheerios box in early 2009, led the pledge of allegiance at last year’s Democratic National Convention in Denver, was a headliner of last fall’s Tour of Gymnastics Superstars and was named Choice Female Athlete at the 2008 Teen Choice Awards. Her debut biography Shawn Johnson: Olympic Champion: Stories Behind the Smile was released in December.”
I love her sparkly dresses and sweet makeup. And she’s tiny! Anyway, if you want to know how she always looks so damn cute, read on for her tips for the spotlight.
You can also check out her photos on Flickr for behind the scene going-ons and a peek at her family life.
Shawn Johnsonâ€™s Tips on How to Look Your Best in the Spotlight
1. 1. Wear something that you feel confident in! I love wearing bright colors like yellow since they really bring out my features and compliment my cheery personality.
3. 3. Have a go to hairstyle that you know will last through a long day or night. I love wearing my hair down with my bangs pulled back in a clip.
4. 4. Never let your deodorant fail you! I use Secret Clinical Strength Sport (available at Drugstore.com) because itâ€™s powerful enough to keep me dry and smelling fresh through all of my most important moments.
5. Smile! Itâ€™s your best accessory.
Tips not enough? Well, you ladies are in luck! I’m going to be posting reviews of Shawn’s favorite products, then I’ll be hosting a giveaway for a Gold Metal prize pack containing Secret Clinical Strength Sport Deodorant, CoverGirl Lipstain in Berry, and CoverGirl Lash Blast Mascara (anther of her faves)!
