Not going to lie – each year, I get excited to see what type of look will be created for the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Usually a bit smokey, but with no harsh lines or edges, and natural, glow-y cheeks and lips. This year, I read that makeup artist Dick Page used a few different cream shadows on the eyes, a rosy stain on the cheeks, and a concoction of eight-hour cream, nude lipstick, shimmer, and gloss on the lips. Here’s how I attempted to recreate the look:
It seems that they never do a heavy foundation on the models, so I applied just a few drops of Glossier’s Skin Tint to my face and blended in with my hands. To cover blemishes and conceal underneath my eyes, I used L’Oreal’s True Match Super Blendable Concealer.
For eyeshadow, I first blended a small amount of Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze onto my lids, up to my crease. To add definition, I applied Charlotte Tilbury’s Color Chameleon in Dark Pearl closer to my lash line, and blended out the edges with a Mac 217 brush. To smoke things out a bit more, I drew a thin line of Mac Fluid Line Pencil on my upper lash line, and blended away. To complete the eye look, I curled my lashes and applied several coats of Maybelline Full ‘N Soft Mascara.
To recreate a natural rosy glow on my cheeks, I applied Nars Matte Multiple in Laos by first getting a bit of water on my middle finger so that the product would be easier to blend out. To add a little highlight and glow, I took the highlight shade from the Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Palette, and tapped the product onto my cheek bones, as well as on the inner corners of my eyes.
Lastly, for a pink shimmering lip I applied Mac Prabal Gurung Lip Glass in Light English Red.
