beautyblender® gives Miami Swim Week 2015 a #flawlessallover look
Lights, glam and…action! The beautyblender® team took over Miami Swim Week in South Beach a few weeks ago working backstage with our new product bodyblender on 19 shows! Yes, 19! With glistening, glowing bodies donning the hottest swimsuit collections of 2016, Miami Swim Week was the perfect place for us to go to create a #FlawlessAllOver look using bodyblender.
We partnered up with Celebrity Makeup Artist Mario Dedivanovic and Benefit Cosmetics for the Frankie’s Bikinis show. As the Lead Makeup Artist, Mario created the look for the show and demonstrated the application for the team before the show. While backstage before the show, he prepped the model first by creating a natural, beachy look using the original beautyblender® to apply foundation, then applied Watt’s Up highlighter using micro.mini to the temple area and cupid’s bow. “I love micro.mini because it’s the perfect size for a seamless highlight,” says Mario.
He topped off the look using bodyblender to apply Bathina to create a silky, glimmer on the skin. (Skin Glow Tip: Mix Bathina with Watt’s Up to create the ultimate shimmer on the skin.) To see the complete Benefit product breakdown, click here.
Did we mention that we worked on 19 shows? Our beautyblender® team was in full force as our team of pro makeup artists used bodyblender on all the models prepping them for each show. Some of our biggest shows included Mara Hoffman (sponsored by Sephora Pro), Belluso (sponsored by Stila) and Mikoh.
One of the major highlights of Swim Week was our own beautyblender® event! If you can picture it, we had a custom-built ball pit made but instead of being filled with plastic balls it was chock full of pink beautyblenders®! Can you even imagine it? Just the thought of jumping into a sea of pink beautyblenders® is a beauty junkie’s dream! We started the event having models Bianca Palmerin and Ivana Korab pose with a bodyblender in hand while lying in the pit surrounded by a mass of plush pink beautyblenders®. Then, we invited a select group of fans to join us in the pit where they could pose and give their best ‘blue steel’ as their pics were posted instantaneously onto their social media accounts. You can check out all of our postings from Swim Week and from our fans by following the hashtag: #FlawlessAllOver.
*A special thanks goes out to Mario Dedivanovic and Frankies Bikinis for making this year’s show an amazing and gorgeous success. And to the friendliest hotel – One Hotel and the W Hotel South Beach for being an incredible host for some of Swim Week’s shows!
