Tom Pecheux returned to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2010 as the lead makeup artist and created a “California Girl meets French Kiss” look on the models this year.

The skin was evened out with liquid foundation before bronzer was heavily buffed across the cheekbones and on the outer sides of the bridge of the nose for a sun-kissed look. The same shade of taupe contoured the cheeks and creases of the eyes, whereas white eyeliner and gold eyeshadow made the waterline and inner corner of the eyes pop. The eyelashes were made lush without being over the top with coats of mascara and individual lashes. Finally, a brown lip liner traced the outline of the lips and a matte red lipstick was dabbed onto the center of the lips before topped with a nude gloss.
