How To Create The Brilliantly Sexy Collection Makeup Look

Using fingertips, smooth Silverdust all over lid, from the lashline to the browbone. Next, layer Stardust over lid and blend up into crease. Use a brush to apply Nightdust to upper and lower lashline, concentrating on outer corners for ultimate definition and extreme drama. Starting at the outside corner and moving inward, line along upper lashline with Blacklight, keeping the liner thickest at the outer corner. Finish with two coats of High Definition Mascara in Blackest Black for eye-opening drama.

Lightly dust Candygirl on cheeks and blend up towards temples for a soft, sensual glow. Mix Star with your favorite body lotion to illuminate shoulders and decollete.

Complete the look with a lighter layer of Intimate for lasting shine and rich, shimmering color.

The Brilliantly Sexy Collection is now available at select Victoria’s Secret stores and not online yet.
