Effortlessly cool Cali girls were the inspiration backstage at BCBG’s Spring/Summer 2016 show — a fashion week trend that easily translates to real life. Get the details on the behind-the-scenes hair and makeup tricks to rock the look for yourself!
Fashion week is usually full of hair and makeup trends, that while totally cool on the runway, don’t exactly make for practical looks in real life. Then there are gorgeous looks, like the California babes at BCBG, that are so wearable, celebs like Pretty Little Liars’ Ashley Benson have already sported something similar. Get the exact details on mastering this casual, cool look for yourself.
To get the dewy, airbrushed-to-perfection skin we saw backstage, beauty genius Val Garland worked with the just-released TEMPTU Air. The new, cordless airbrush device gives you the same makeup power beauty pros use in the simplest way possible.
After applying the TEMPTU Base Smooth & Matte Primer on models’ skin, Val used the new TEMPTU to airbrush on foundation, then added highlight with the Airpod Highlighter in Champagne and a sunkissed glow with the Airpod Bronzer in Warm Glow. “It’s such a light film, that you can build it up,” Val said of the makeup mist the TEMPTU evenly covers skin with.
BCBG Beauty At Fashion Week — How To Get Glowing Skin & Beachy Waves
When it comes to getting those California beach babe waves, Orlando Pita, working with Tresemmé, brought back an old method for getting the look. On towel-dried hair, layer Tresemmé Make Waves Shaping Gel Cream and Tresemmé Make Waves Shine Enhancing Cream into your hair. Divide your hair into two-inch sections and twist into tiny buns (think ’90s era Gwen Stefani). Either let your hair dry naturally or blow dry, and when you take the buns out, you’ll be left with gorgeous beachy waves.
