Yesterday I went backstage before the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which was held at the 69th Regiment Armory in NYC, and got the scoop on the secrets behind the Angel’s glowing skin, bombshell waves and scored an interview with high fashion model, Liu Wen.
Check out the video interview I did backstage with Lead Makeup Artist, Tom Pecheux, and find out which products he used on the models after the jump!
Here’s a shot of the main products used to create the look. Before applying foundation, Pecheux massaged each of the model’s skin with Rodin Face Oil to moisturize and awaken it by stimulating circulation.
Pecheux wanted to create a believable tan complexion and used Victoria’s Secret Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder in Glitterati across the models’ faces in places where the sun would hit (cheekbones, chin, nose and brow bone). He then blended Victoria’s Secret Luminous Mineral Blush Duo in Starlet into the apples of the cheeks and up into the temples to make the tan look natural.
Inspired by Marilyn Monroe, the eye had a thin line of liquid liner and lashes were real! Tons of mascara. To finish, he used Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Lipstick in Wisper with a top coat of Very Sexy Lipgloss in Sublime.
Check out the video for the real deal:
