For the Love of the Games: Edits for the Olympics Super Fan

23 Jul 2021

The Olympic Games are officially open and we’re excited to watch the athletic excitement unfold. We have no choice but to take in the action virtually, so why not get creative with the way we support our respective countries? Here are a few fun ways you can use AirBrush to rep your national delegation during the 2020 Olympics. Let the games begin…

Cheer them on with Your Hair

Question: Can you really call yourself a superfan if your hair doesn’t match your flag? As a virtual viewer of the games, there’s no need to go the whole nine yards with a real dye job, but with AirBrush your hair can still pay homage to your team. The Hair Dye Tool has 17 different hues to choose from, and we’re pretty confident at least one of them reflects your national colors!

  • Go to the Tools tab and select the Hair Dye Tool 
  • Find a Hair Dye that coordinates with your flag
  • For the perfect application use the Fine-Tune Feature 
  • Zoom in and adjust your brush size to apply directly to the strands of hair that haven’t automatically been dyed.
  • Tap the checkmark to save your edits.

Create a Custom Makeup Look

The Olympics present the perfect opportunity for you to let your makeup do the talking for you. From your lips to your eyeshadow, you want your face to be a visual representation of your patriotism. With the ability to Build Looks, you can create a customized look for you to cheer your team on to victory!

  • Go to the Makeup tab
  • Tap on Build Looks
  • Scroll the carousel and tap on the features you’d like to edit
  • You can customize your Lips, Eyeliner, and even Eyeshadow based on your national colors
  • Tap the checkmark to save your edits.

Real Fans Rock Glitter

If you’re not sparkling, does it really count? Especially since you can’t physically be present at the Olympics this year, you’ve got to go the extra mile to ensure that your good vibes are felt all the way in Tokyo.

  • Find the Glitter Tool in your Retouch Tab.
  • Select the color(s) that coordinate with your flag 
  • Zoom in to carefully apply the Glitter wherever you like. From your clothes to your hair to your eyes, the sky’s the limit! 
  • After every Glitter application, tap the checkmark to save your edit.

Revel in the Spirit of the Games

We know you’ll be cheering your athletes on loud and proud…from a distance. But, if you were in the arena, you’d be surrounded by rhythmic chants and thunderous applause. What better way to replicate that feeling than with a filter that appears to be pulsating with positive energy? 

  • Go to Filters and tap on Retro 
  • Scroll through the collection to get to Revel and tap on it to select  
  • You can adjust the impact of the Filter by sliding the center toggle from right to left
  • Click the checkmark to save your edit

If that isn’t patriotism at its best, we don’t know what is! Now it’s your turn to dive deep into AirBrush and create an edit inspired by your nation’s Olympic delegation. Share your photo using #AirBrushApp and follow us on Instagram at @AirBrushOfficial for more editing tips and tricks!
