Makeup
This year we have French beauty guru Tom Pecheux turning our beautiful supermodels into Angels. Tom kept the same theme with a “a bit of freshness, light colors, no hard line, a lot of shimmer, pink lipstick, black mascara, of course a bit of glow, a bit of tan, a bit of sexiness”.

To play up Miranda’s eyes, Tom applied taupe and pink eyeshadows on the eyelid, gray liner that is winged out and added individual lashes. A rosy blush warmed up the skin and pink lipstick along with peach gloss topped the lips. Shimmer was also applied generously to highlight the cheekbone, brow bone and inner corner of the eye for a bling bling effect.

Hair
Hairstylist Laurent Philippon created loose waves that are “light, sensual and move a lot”. For hair “that you would want to touch”, Laurent and his team added extensions, before prepping the hair with So Sexy Volumizing Mousse and Supersmooth Straightening Balm from Victoria’s Secret very own haircare line. The hair was then curled and set with Natural Hold Hairspray, again from the VS line.
