Tutorial: Victoria's Secret model inspired makeup

Hello Lovelies,

 I've always wanted to try a Victoria's Secret makeup look and since the 2011 Annual VS fashion show aired last week, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share a VS "angel" inspired makeup tutorial.

I feel there's a few key points that carry through all the VS models, irregardless of their ethnicity (although there are a large number of hot Brazilian models) and style. They are always glamorous yet have that "girl-next-girl" appeal which makes them so lovely. Today's look is not quite a "replica" of any particular VS makeup look but rather my version of a VS Angel imagery.

Let's get familiar with some of VS's most popular faces...


Miss "Legs-for-miles"
Alessandra

Veteran VS Model
Adriana Lima

New Angel on the block
Rosie H.W.

Rosie Hungtinton whitely-horz



Here's a few key feature to take note of ...
  • Natural looking skin (flawless but real)
  • Lush lashes for batting at the boys
  • Plump lips 
  • Bronzers and highlighters for that angelic glow

    I feel that this look is really adaptable, certainly it can be worn in an extremely natural way or kicked up with more dramatic lashes and slightly darker eyeshadow. The feel of this look over-all is meant to be soft and approachable but not boring.... extra little details and a light touch should do the trick.

    As you can see, I avoided going all out with the bronzer which would have easily looked too heavy with my pale complexion. Instead I focused on a bright pop of blush and just a slight kiss of shimmer along the cheeks.

    As I was researching this, I happened upon some lovely Asian models who walked the runway for VS this year. Including (who appears to be) our beloved Liu Wen, who appeared in photographs from my previous runway inspired makeup looks.

    In a sea of tanned bronzed skin, it's nice to see some variety. I mean honesty, my only road to Alessandra's golden colour is through a bottle of St. Tropez (actually probably two bottles).

    I hope you all had fun with today's makeup tutorial and doll up yourself as an angel from time to time. For those who are a little shy about makeup or those looking for a light but pretty look, this one would be a stunner.
