Steal Their Style: The Angels

The Victoria’s Secret Angels are like the popular girls in high school–boys  love them and girls love to hate them, but secretly wish for their gorgeous glowing skin. The Angels are undoubtedly the most genetically gifted women on Earth, but their team of hair and makeup artists also do quite a bit of work. With the warm weather approaching a bronzed and glowing complexion will go perfect with all of your flowing maxi dresses, so here is an Angel-inspired “Steal Her Style”!

The first and most crucial step to glowing like an Angel is “Loving the face,” according to Tom Pecheux, the head MUA for the Angel’s annual fashion show. Unlike other shows which are usually quite rushed, the VS ladies arrive at 10 a.m. for a full day of pampering before showtime (sounds like the tough life, doesn’t it?). Pecheux begins with massaging a few drops of the cult favorite moisturizing oil by Rodin. Once the oil soaks in, he follows with a regular moisturizer suited for the individual’s skin type. The last product Pecheux uses is Idealist by Estee Lauder which evens out skin tone and reduces shine.

Since the Angels are filmed under the harsh runway lights, Pecheux uses a liquid foundation over the entire face. For everyday use, I would recommend a tinted moisturizer, unless you need the full coverage of a foundation. Arbonne makes a fantastic tinted moisturizer that feels especially light in the warmer months. Buff on some loose powder with a big Royal & Langnickel Kabuki brush and get ready for the most important step- bronzer!

If you want to be just like Miranda and Behati grab the Baked Mineral Bronzer from VS which has a slight shimmer to it and will only further enhance your glowing complexion! Swirl it all over with a Contoured Powder Brush, concentrating on your cheeks, temples, forehead and cheekbones. For that extra Angel shimmer, use Vicky’s Shimmer Shadow and lightly dust on your cheekbones up to the temples with a fan brush. The Royal & Langnickel SILK Kabuki Fan brush is amazing.

Last, pick out a vibrant pink blush and apply it to the apples of your cheeks up to the temples. Physican’s Formula recently debuted their Happy Booster Blush which contains Euphoryl —  a natural plant extract that has been shown to mimic the effect of endorphins and help protect the skin from environmental stress. I’ve been using it for a few weeks, and my mood may not feel drastically different, but the color is fabulous!

Since so much emphasis is put on the skin, eyes and lips are kept relatively simple. Natural, shimmering shadow colors are lightly brushed on using a combination of pencil and liquid liner around the eyes. Use the Shimmer Shadow from earlier for your lids. Also, you can drag the liquid liner a bit farther than your lid to give a flattering slight-cat-eye. On lips, apply a nude lipstick like Revlon’s Soft Nude and then top your look off with Vicky’s signature gloss and get ready to strut your stuff!
