Catwalk to the Sidewalk: Airbrush Makeup Looks Fresh from the Spring Runways

Skin is still in, Rock Candy cuties!  The spring 2019 fashion shows featured a wide range of airbrush make-up looks, particularly ones that focused on dewy, glowing skin, pastel pouts, and bright, brilliant lids.  The occasional use of artistically-applied glitter, show-stopping vibrant hues, or graphic eyeliner had their make-up moments, but the overall theme was all about youthful, ethereal celebration with an ode to bare, beautiful skin.

Short skirts and even shorter shorts that show off lean legs and body-baring crop tops that flaunt toned, tanned tummies…ahh…springtime is finally upon us!  And, just like you swap your chunky-knit cardigans and ankle booties for warm weather wardrobe picks, so should you modify your airbrush make-looks using your Rock Candy organic airbrush make-up essentials.  Check out these fresh-faced looks spotted all over the season’s runways and spring into the new season looking fabulously flawless – all using your vegan, cruelty-free Rock Candy brand airbrush make-up system. 

High Gloss Cheeks

The models at Tom Ford’s 70s-inspired show flaunted clean, barely-there skin with a gush of gorgeous gleam on the high-points of cheeks. Copy the look using a single, super-sheer coat of your favorite Rock Candy airbrush make-up foundation, while going a bit heavy-handed on the Rock Candy illuminator to achieve the glass-like look.  Instead of coloring and contouring your cheeks using your go-to Rock Candy airbrush bronzer, opt for contouring with your Rock Candy illuminator to get the mega-watt highlighted look.  Pair with a golden, bronzed smoky eye or just a light coat of mascara on your fluttery fringes, while keeping lids nude/neutral.  Swipe lips with a clear gloss and subtle nude liner to complete the gossamer effect.  If you desire to be a bit more daring, dab a few specks of glitter to your gloss.

Neon Lids

This season, you’re sure to spot bags, shoes, hair, and accessories sporting the vivid tones, and the peepers parading down the catwalks at Christian Siriano and Chalayan were no exception.  Hot tip:  keep the color to a single swipe along lids with shades like electric blue, vibrant orange, magenta, and even neon green.  Be sure to keep the rest of your look dewy and diaphanous with just a single, second-skin coat of your Rock Candy airbrush foundation and Rock Candy illuminator along forehead, tops of cheeks, and down bridge of nose.

Second-Skin Foundation

The “no make-up” make-up/”I woke up like this” trend from the fall and winter is springing ahead into the upcoming sand and sea season.  This is where your Rock Candy airbrush foundation will be the star of the show. While many of the spring’s hottest shows, like Pat McGrath and Lisa Eldridge, opted for completely foundation-free faces, we know that isn’t always realistic for the everyday girl.  However, you can still make your skin “look” like it’s bare and natural by using a super-sheer, minimal amount of airbrush foundation - just enough to even-out your complexion and give you an effortless, flawless finish.  Complement the look with a hint of hue on cheeks using your Rock Candy blush.  And, don’t forget your Rock Candy illuminator to highlight and enhance your best assets. 

Dewy Beauty

You’ve probably realized by now that the make-up of the moment is all about a glowy, gorgeous skin.  To get in on the catwalk-worthy look, simply add a few drops of Rock Candy illuminator in Champagne or Cosmopolitan to your airbrush foundation to achieve satiny, sexy, “lit-from-within” skin instantly.  Models at Victoria Beckham’s show were dripping with dewy, succulent skin and just a flush of blush on the cheeks.  We suggest the universally-flattering Rock Candy blush in Just Blush with its cool, pink undertones just in time for spring.

Beachy Beauty

Fittingly, bronzer is back, beauty babes!  And, it was featured two ways on this spring’s catwalks.  The first was subtle, sun-kissed color ala just-back-from-the-beach glow. Get the beachy-beautiful, bombshell look by lightly contouring cheeks and coloring chin, nose, and forehead with your Rock Candy airbrush SunKissed Bronzer or Refined Gold Bronzer and finishing the sun-soaked look with just a touch of strategically-placed illuminator (tops of cheeks, right beneath hairline, and cupid’s bow). Prettify your pout with a peachy-pink gloss and make those peepers pop with a peach pigment to complete the sizzling summertime trend.  The Alberta Ferretti show featured models sporting an even, allover bronzing with, again, strategically-placed illuminator.  So, if you’re brave enough to don a heavy-handed bronzed glow, this is your moment to do so.  The Badgley Mischka runway showcased strong, hard contouring using airbrushed bronzer, while coloring creases with a touch of taupe/bronzy-brown eye shadow for a more sophisticated take on the sun-tanned trend. 

Purple Pouts

Hey, sexy mother pucker! Pastel, pale-like purple pouts pervaded the spring shows, giving major lip service to this season’s popular pigment.  The Maryam Nassir Zadeh show favored a matte version of the fun, flirty color paired with muted, natural airbrush make-up for the perfect, fresh springtime look.
