Raise your hand if you watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Raise your hand if you watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and then immediately afterwards try to recreate the makeup look. Yes, I am guilty of doing both of these things, several times over.
I have been watching the show for years, and I am always in awe of the gorgeous makeup looks – especially those that were created by the one and only Tom Pecheux [who remembers the simple, winged liner and peach lip look?]. I would scour the web for backstage images, and dig up some of my own products that looked similar to what was used. Then, when I found out which products were actually used, I would go to my local VS and purchase them.
I have collected a decent amount of VS beauty products, and most of them are actually really good. This is why I was disappointed when I recently read that VS is discontinuing its makeup collection [has anyone else heard this?]. If you want to get your hands on a few stand-out products before you can’t, check out the Dark Chocolate Eye Liner, Lip Sheen in Better Than Bare, and Sheer Drama Hydrating Lipstick in Entice.
Now I want to ask you: do you guys watch the VS Fashion show and try to recreate the look? Have you ever purchased a product from the VS makeup line?
