It’s safe to say the majority of us have a little more spring in our step when we are exuding a sunkissed glow. Welcome: the return of the bronzer. Bronzer became somewhat of an underdog in recent years, as complicated contouring swept the beauty world by storm (in one neverending muddy brush stroke), followed by the return of dewy skin and rosy cheeks. The good news for those of us who can’t master the art of contouring and don’t do well with the pale, yet interesting approach, is that the SS’19 catwalks decided that a glow is golden this season.
Confirming a fresh direction from contouring, the spring/summer make up artists opted to sweep the bronzer along models’ cheekbones, not beneath them, moving away from the chiselled effect of years gone by. Nineties nostalgia, blended with seventies-style sunkissed skin was the inspiration this season, as seen at Alberta Ferretti, Altuzarra, Badgley Mischka and Molly Goddard, to name a few.
Alberta Ferretti adopted a soft, subtle approach of all-over bronzer paired with a pretty pink lip. Altuzarra continued the peachy glow into the eyeshadow palette, matched with a hint of highlighter. At Badgley Mischka richer tones of sun-soaked browns and pinks warmed up the runway, while make up artist Hiromi Ueda, for Molly Goddard, created ultra-bronzed cheeks with a bold blush.
