Foundation, eye shadows, powder, blush… Gymnasts always wear beautiful make-up during competitions.
The style depends on the choices of the gymnast, since there is no regulation about make-up for competitions. In Aesthetic Gymnastics, make-up has become relevant as a way of expression.
Some of them choose natural make up such as Anna Rizatdinova or heavy smoky eyes such as Yanika Vartlaan. Even a cosmetics brand, GOSH cosmetics, is promoting Belarusian team. Spanish former gymnast, Almudena Cid, filmed a tutorial about Rhythmic Gymnastics Makeup.
Russian team is including in their summer camps make-up lessons.
The Ukrainian smokey eye
Yanika Vartlaan and Vlada Nikolchenko are inspired on Tamara Yerofeeva’s early 00’s smokey dark make-up. You can do a similar effect using this Urban Decay “Naked Smoky”
This item makes your eyes look bigger. You can draw it with a pencil eyeliner or a liquid one. Kat Von D “Tattoo liner”, is very precise.
As simple as that. If you don’t want to wear heavy makeup, this lipstick colour has to be on your basics. This one by MAC “Russian red” is one of the most sold lipsticks all around the world.
Silviya Miteva and Katsiaryna Halkina use a cast of blue tones on their eyes. Another example of palette that suits these colours is a limited edition HUDA BEAUTY “Sapphire Obsessions” Eyeshadow palette.
That’s a question with a controversial answer. Since its inception, rhythmic gymnastics has typically been a sport only practiced by women. We were not used to seeing boys performing rhythmic exercises.
In 2005, the Royal Spanish Federation allowed men to compete at the national level, but in a special category, called “Open”. Later in 2013, men were allowed to compete in National Championships.
Since its inception, rhythmic gymnastics has typically been a sport only practiced by women.
Currently, F.I.G. approves Men’s Rhythmic Gymnastics (Men’s RG, MRG), which is an artistic sport that combinates acrobatics synchronization moves. These sport doesn’t include the same apparatus as female Rhythmic Gymnastics. Particularly in Europe, some male rhythmic gymnasts who perform in the same way as their female counterparts. They are, however, not eligible to participate in any major competition. There is also a increasing number of international Rhythmic Gymnastics judges which are men.
L’Association de Défense de l’Égalité Hommes-Femmes en Gymnastique Rythmique (GR-ADE) is a french non profit organisation created on August 2018.
This project was suggested by the presidency of the Île-de-France region (the organizing region of the Paris Olympics 2024) and supported by the french State Secretariat for gender equality and the Fight against Discrimination. It was then Implemented by Peterson Ceus (french masculine rhythmic gymnast).
Its missions :
– Defend gender diversity within Rhythmic Gymnastics (now closed discipline to men), allowing access of boys at all levels of competition (national and international).
– Fight against discriminatory behaviors in this sport.
– Convince institutions, medias, and broadly speaking, the public of the interest of establishing equality between men and women within Rhythmic Gymnastics.
The ultimate goal is to ensure an official gender equality in the competition programs of the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) and, to promote the opening of the discipline to men at the Olympic Games, in particular those of Paris in 2024.

Russian rhythmic gymnast, Yulia Bravikova, have just announced her retirement due to a foot injury.
Yulia is the European Champion in 2014 with hoop and winner of the Summer Universiade in 2017. A few months before Youth Olympic Games, she suffered a leg injury so that Yulia could not compete. She was withdrawn and replaced by Irina Annenkova, who won gold.
In her senior season, she had a new coach, Daria Kondakova. 2017 was maybe the most succesful year for Yulia: 5 Golds (clubs, ribbon, hoop, ball and all-around) at Grand Prix Eilat (ISR), and All-Around winner of Summer Universiade in Taipei.
In 2018, Bravikova began her season at the 2018 Grand Prix Moscow, where she got injured again.
“Since 2013 I suffered an injury in my left foot, and then, my recovery was really tough. Right now the doctors advise me to stop doing gymnastics. Thank you so much to all the people who believed in me.
