Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Makeup Look

“Enough with the false lashes. We used to do a lot of fakeness: false lashes, fake tan, blah, blah, blah. This year we kill everything. No more fakeness.” Except for the fake breasts, huh?

Start with your face and cheeks

MAKEUP: face time!
1: Skin was prepped with the VS PRO Airbrush FX Face Primer SPF 20 ($18, victoriassecret.com) to create a supple canvas for makeup to glide on. Any face primer will work, of course.
2: Apply tinted moisturizer (Neutrogena makes a nice one) and then use a concealer for problem areas. (I prefer to use mineral makeup so you only need to use the foundation with a concealer brush. The EcoTools concealor brush is amazing, btw. Perfect for spots and under the eye.)
3: Apply VS Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder in Glitterati ($16, victoriassecret.com) over the face, especially over the top of your forehead, the temples, the cheekbones and your jawline.
4: Pink Blush should be applied on the apples of your cheeks and then swirled upwards towards your temples.
5: To ensure you look like a living angel just dust VS Brilliant Shimmer Shadow in Gold Dust ($12, victoriassecret.com) onto temples and along the tops of your cheekbones. I suspect this might be a step too far if you’re not going to be on a runway, though.

MAKEUP: eyes!
1: Eye shadow primer. Always important to keep your eye shadow from creasing! I use Senna as my winter eyes primer because it’s thick and it works.
2: Liquid highlighter under eyes to cancel out dark undereyes seems like an unnecessary step after concealer, but it’s what the angels had done to them.
3: Sweep some VS Brilliant Shimmer Shadow in Gold Dust ($12, victoriassecret.com) onto your brow bones and the inner corners of the eyes. You can also use any mineral eyeshadow to get the same great pigment and shimmer. Use it wet for evenmore concentrated color.


4: Black liquid eyeliner is applied to your upper lashline, starting at the inner corner and extending slightly beyond the outer corner for a slight upward cat-eye wing. Keep it natural. Less is more.
5: Plenty of volumizing and lengthening mascara in black on top and bottom lashes. I would forgo the bottom lashes, though.

MAKEUP: lips service!
1: Exfoliate lips with lip scrub or your toothbrush bristles. Get the dead skin gone.
2: Use VS Perfect Lipstick in Whisper (a pink champagne nude which looks totally blah until you wear it, I think.) ($13, victoriassecret.com)
3
: Apply VS Lip Gloss is Sublime (a sheer coral) ($12, victoriassecret.com) or VS Sparkling Lip Gloss in Delight (a sheer sparkly pink) ($13, victoriassecret.com), “concentrating on the center of the mouth for added fullness and shine.”

MAKEUP for your body!
1: Moisturize, then mist VS Beach Sexy Flawless Airbrush Instant Spray ($12, victoriassecret.com) over the entire body so you have a healthy glow.
2: Swirl a body brush in a bronzer and run it down the center of legs, on the collarbone and over shoulders for definition.
