EXCLUSIVE: Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, The Makeup Kit
In T-minus ten hours, Victoria’s Secret Angels like the greens-and-protein-packing Adriana Lima, a kimono-clad Anja Rubik, and maybe even one Gisele Bündchen (if certain rumors prove true) will take to the runway at the Lexington Avenue Armory for the taping of the lingerie brand’s annual fashion show. Swarovski-studded Miracle Bras and all manners of feathered appendages will no doubt abound, as will the tanned, shimmering faces and bouncy blow-outs we’ve come to expect from a show that puts spectacle and sexiness above all else. We’ll be backstage this afternoon to bring you all the important face-painting details, but here’s a little teaser for now: VS has created a special makeup kit to help you get the beauty look at home once the show airs next month. The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Backstage Makeup Kit features 50 must-haves for eyes, lips, and face, including 30 Silky Eye Shadows, five Lip Glosses, five Perfect Lipsticks, and four blushes, as well as a Luminous Powder, Translucent Powder, Bronzer, Mascara, Lip Liner, Eye Liner, and five brushes. The compact is pretty epic, not to mention runway-ready. Makeup artists will actually be using colors from the glossy black box on site today. Look out for it in stores beginning December 1 and stay tuned for our step-by-step guide for primping like a celestial being.
