Makeup artist Dick Page decided to go for a “scruffier” look this year. This meant smudgier eye makeup, which was achieved with VS Makeup Eye Liner in Dark Chocolate rimmed and smudged along the lash lines, while the dark chocolate shade from VS Makeup Eye Quad in Eye Contact added drama to the outer V and the shimmery gold color highlighted the inner half of the eyes. Lashes were coated with VS Makeup Volume Lift Mascara.

On the skin, Dick blended VS Color Drama Lipstick in Taken with a cosmetic wedge onto the cheeks then layered VS Makeup Tinted Moisturizer & Primer SPF 15 flush over it for a flushed-within effect. To finish, VS Color Drama Lipstick in True or Flawless were pressed onto the lips.

Hair stylist Orlando Pita created the gorgeous, glossy waves by first prepping the hair with Victoria’s Secret So Sexy Body & Hold Volumizing Mousse. Next, he blow dried hair with a round ceramic brush from ghd to build volume before adding in various hair extensions and finishing with Victoria’s Secret So Sexy Style Hold & Finish Hairspray. Finally, he curled them with a ghd 1.5 inch curling iron before combing them with his fingers and adding more hair spray.

To create the perfect sun-kissed glowy skin, Victoria’s Secret Beach Sexy Bronzing and Runway Ready bodycare products on the models.
