The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is tomorrow night! Filmed November 13th in NYC, I was fortunate enough to go backstage and check out all of the action. After speaking with Adriana Lima, Toni Garrn and Alessandra Ambrossio, I posted this on their fitness tips (apparently sex counts). Just in, is the complete rundown on how to get the bombshell look from their glam squad – makeup artist, Dick Page and hair stylist, Orlando Pita. Get your sexy on, ladies! MAKEUP
For a fresh and flawless complexion, apply VS Makeup Tinted Moisturizer & Primer SPF 15 all over skin with a foundation brush—this creates a smooth and even canvas for makeup application.
Next, sweep VS Makeup Mineral Blush Duo in Starlet across the apples of the cheeks. Blend up to temples for a warm and natural-looking flush.
Start by lightly defining the inner rims of eyes with VS Makeup Eye Liner in Dark Chocolate. Next, line the top lash line with the same pencil and use the smudger end to blend the line upward and out. Make sure there are no sharp lines; keeping the eye liner soft, blended and diffused creates a smoky effect that makes the eyes pop.
Using the VS Makeup Eye Shadow Quad in Eye Contact, apply the Highlight shade from the lash line up to the brow. Emphasize the inner corner and brow bone for an extra brightening effect. Next, sweep the dark brown Crease shade in a “V” shape at the outer corner of the eye and blend well to create drama. Dust the shimmery gold Lid shade across the inner half of the lid. Hold a tissue under the eye while applying eye shadow to catch any excess powder.
Apply VS Makeup Volume Plump Mascara to upper and lower lashes. Layer extra coats on the upper lashes for a more dramatic effect.
For a nude pout with a hint of shine, use your fingertip to pat on VS Makeup Color Drama Lipstick in Melt.
Apply VS So Sexy Style Body & Hold Volumizing Mousse from roots to ends of damp hair. Section the hair and dry using the ghd air professional performance hairdryer and a ghd round brush.
Starting at the nape, take a horizontal section of the hair and mist with VS So Sexy Style Hold & Finish Hairspray. Place two fingers at the root of the hair and wrap the hair around, tucking in the ends to create a pin curl around the fingers.
Once the section is wrapped, gently remove your fingers. Close the ghd tri-zone styler onto the pin curl, hold for about 5 seconds, letting the heat do its work, then remove the styler and pin.
Repeat this technique through the hair. Keep fingers straight at all times when wrapping the hair.
Once cooled, release the curls from the pins. To finish, mist hair with VS So Sexy Style Clean & Go Dry Shampoo or VS So Sexy Style Hold & Finish Hairspray, depending upon your hair texture or the amount of volume you want to create. Use your hands, or a brush, to create your desired finish.
