The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has bedroom beauty on lock. A soft smoky eye, perfectly tussled hair, and the kind of rosy pink pout you can only get one of two ways: by making out for hours or reaching for a tube of the models’ ridiculously flattering nude lipstick.
Last night, Victoria’s Secret pulled off yet another killer fashion show (despite having some issues with getting all the models to Shanghai). With 80 looks in total — Swarovski-encrusted wings, a sapphire studded bra, a surprise Balmain collab — it was almost hard to notice anything else. But IMHO, it was the subtle yet sexy beauty looks that stole the show (along with Bella Hadid’s abs).
Luckily, the makeup is easier to get your hands on than the abs.
To achieve the MLBB lips seen on the models last night, reports New Beauty , Victoria’s Secret’s lead makeup artist Tom Pecheux used Victoria’s Secret Velvet Matte Cream Lip Stain ($14) in Adored — on every single model. “Velvet Lip Matte Cream Lip Stain in Adored is the perfect base for lips; simply dab onto the lips to enhance a pink natural lip color,” Pecheux told New Beauty.
With this year’s diverse runway (the range of skin tones could have given Rihanna’s award-winning Fenty Beauty foundation range a run for its money), how is that possible, you ask? After using the soft beige stain as a base, Pecheux then used a second lip shade — a dusty rose dubbed Perfection or a punchier mauve called Love — to compliment each models’ exact coloring. Pure lip layering genius.
