Here's How You Can Look Like a Victoria's Secret Model
Though the infamous million dollar bras from the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show may fall slightly out of our price range, the bombshell hair and makeup Adriana Lima rocked on the 2014 runway is definitely our speed with the effortless, glowing skin, and sexy tousled waves. As a nod to the event taking place in London, lead makeup artist Dick Page went easy on the usual all-over bronzing routine and opted for a fresh, natural finish. "You don't book a whole set of gorgeous girls and then change them," he tells WWD. "I'm sure there are going to be some girls who sneak off and do things, but I can't catch everyone."
To impart a believable flush, Page reversed the order of the products used on the face, applying a touch of red face paint by Kryolan ($8; kryolan.com) before blending foundation, and a whisper of bronzer over the top. "If you put it on first, it immediately makes you look better, more healthy and alive," he says. "Then, you can do a selective bit of foundation if you need to."
Easy on the eyes is an understatement---for the first year ever, Page nixed the false lashes altogether, and instead, applied a layer of Shiseido's Sable Cream Shadow ($25; shiseido.com) over the lids. Touches of the Caviar and Shoyu colors ($25 each; shiseido.com) were smudged along the lash line, with a few coats of mascara and the Victoria's Secret Pout Lip Stain ($10; victoriassecret.com) topping off the sultry effect.
As for that sexy, "I woke up like this," bed-head hair? The lush volume was created in part by lead hairstylist Aki using many strips of extensions, and generous dollops of the Victoria's Secret Mega-Lift Mousse ($14; victoriassecret.com). He applied the product to damp strands, and after blow-drying with a round brush, Aki wound individual areas around the GHD Curve Classic Curl Iron ($245; ghdhair.com) to form soft, touchable waves. Each section was then wrapped around a large velcro roller to set. Once the curls had cooled completely, Aki applied a few drops of the Victoria's Secret High-Shine Serum ($14; victoriassecret.com) and gave strands a slight tousle to break up the texture.
