This year’s 2019 Fashion Palette Australian Swim Collection Show presented a wide variety of swimwear from eight Aussie labels: TJ Swim, Lil and Emm, Nookie Beach, Lahana Swim, Vincija Swimwear, Sage Swim, Sonya Swim and VDM the Label.

The one thing all these up-and-coming swim designers had in common was wanting their models to embody the relaxed, healthy, and bronzed look that beach babes down under are famous for — and in searching for a backstage beauty sponsor, they found the perfect match in fellow Aussie-founded brand, Bondi Sands.

Famous worldwide for their self-tanning formulations, Bondi Sands launched this year into Walgreens stores in the US, and had their first global product reveal at Coachella 2019 to celebrate their newest tanning innovation, Aero Aerated Self-Tanning Foam.

With a weightless, ultra-fast drying formula, Aero aerosol foam absorbs into the skin deeper and quicker for the most controlled and comfortable self tanning experience, perfect for anyone busy and on-the-go (such as a fully-booked model during Miami Swim Week!).

Read on to see how Bondi Sands’ newest innovation — Aero — helped get the Fashion Palette models runway-ready:

How Fashion Palette Models Prepped for Swim Week With Bondi Sands
  1. Upon arriving at their fittings for the show, the Fashion Palette Australian Swim Collection models (including Aussies Natalie Roser, Steph Rayner, La’Tecia Thomas and Georgia Gibbs) were given a bottle of Bondi Sands Aero Tanning Foam and a reusable Self-Tan Application Mitt.
  2. The models were instructed to head home, exfoliate, and apply Bondi Sands Aero liberally to the Tanning Mitt before rubbing it into their skin, using a long, sweeping motion on the body.
  3. After leaving Aero on to develop for at least six hours, the formula was showered off and the models were ready to walk the runway with a deep, bronzed, golden glow, with any skin imperfections smoothed and existing tan lines faded.
