Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo
An innovative powder blush duo palette with two shades for customizable color that delivers foolproof radiance all day.
What it does:
Air Blush Soft Glow Duo features two shades that merge together so you can customize your color for a sexy, natural-looking glow. Achieve a dance-floor flush with this blush that’s infused with Japanese air powder for the ultimate cheek look. This ultra-lightweight, radiant powder is nearly undetectable to the touch, and gives your skin a radiant finish. Air Blush is created using a process called soufflage (French for "air-whipped") for a silky-soft, cream-like texture that blends effortlessly with the complexion.
The unique striped pattern on this powder blush is inspired by a Marc Jacobs dress. An innovative process allows every shade band to extend beyond the surface, for even color with every brushstroke. Two glowing shades complement each other: the lighter shade highlights and the deeper shade contours. Customize your color by layering and blending as much as you desire to tailor your look for the occasion or the season. Air Blush delivers 24-hour blush wear, for glowing radiance from day to night.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
What else you need to know:
Air Blush is inspired by the first celebrity makeup artist, Way Bandy, a friend of Marc Jacobs. Bandy rose to fame during the era of Studio 54 and he embraced the concept of "color glow" as a way of bringing out the natural "drape" of the face. The sleek, palm-sized compact is modeled after a vintage cigarette case.
-For best results, apply Air Blush with The Blush Angled Blush Brush.
-To increase color payoff, sweep the brush vertically through the lighter or deeper shade. To blend the shades sweep horizontally.
-Use Air Blush for a new blush technique: #draping. Air Blush and #draping let you lift, sculpt, volumize, or balance the face.
For a lifted glow:
-Blend both shades together.
-Place at the high of the cheekbone.
-Blend along the length of the cheekbone.
-Blend at the jawline and sides of the neck.
-For a more editorial look, wrap air blush from the eye to the temple.
For a sculpted glow:
-Pick up the deeper shade of blush.
-Apply it just below the apples of the cheeks, low on the face to counterbalance roundness and create a visual oval.
-Next, swirl the lighter shade on top to blend the edges away.
For a volumized glow:
-Blend together both shades.
-Smile, and swirl air blush on the apples of the cheeks.
-Blend for a full, youthful, and subtle look.
For an advanced, balanced glow:
-Blend the shade of your choice: over the peak of the brow at the temples, bridge of nose, tip of the chin, and along sides of neck, near the ear lobes.
