Steal the beauty secrets from Victoria Secret’s 2012 fashion show
By Brittany Anas
The Victoria’s Secret fashion show last night featured star-studded models in astonishingly star-studded bras. Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosia walked the runway wearing a $2.5 million Floral Fantasy Bra with green and pink jewel tones and floral angel wings. (Side note: she just gave birth to her son six months ago.)
We’ve done some sleuth work and have tips for how you can steal some of the sexy looks from the show last night. (Don’t steal Justin Bieber, though. Because he’s like 12 and that’s kidnapping.)
How to get the Angels’ hair:
Use “So Sexy Hair” products to reproduce the tousled waves sported by the models. Victoria Secret’s stylists say that’s the secret for a “glamorous yet effortless runway look.” Try this lightweight wave-enhancing spray. Hair products are on sale now at Victoria’s Secret for 3 for $24.
Not great at curling your hair? We love this no-clamp curler that you can find at Target. You can also just twist your hair around for effortless-looking curls. If your curls are tight at first, just run your fingers through them to loosen them up and give them more of a relaxed look.
How to get the Angels’ make-up:
The stylists at Victoria’s Secret say that the runway make-up was all about glossy, pouty lips, sultry brown eyes and terracotta highlighted cheeks. Their beauty department has a smoky eye makeup kit that will help you get the look yourself with easy instructions for where to put what shades.
For glossy lips, try the “brilliant lip shine gloss” that comes in 10 different shades. We love pinks and reds for the winter.
How to get the Angels’ nails:
Manicure your nails short with oval tips and polish them with a soft pink shape called Bitten.
How to get an airbrushed look:
Give yourself an instant bronze glow with subtle self-tanners and shimmer sprays. Our favorite is the Beach Sexy instant bronze spray.
Rihanna provided the soundtrack for the models as they strutted down the runway. She wore a light pink lacy shirt with a peek-a-boo bra. Here’s a baby doll pink dress from Asos with lace embellishments that’s reminiscent of Rihanna’s look.
