The Gorgeous Nude Lip and Nail Colors the Victoria's Secret Models Wore at the Show
By Brittany Burhop Fallon, Beauty Director |
Last night, 59 of the world's top supermodels walked the legendary Victoria's Secret Fashion Show catwalk, some of them for the first time and others for the last—Brazilian bombshell Adriana Lima sadly announced her retirement from the show after 18 years. The brand paid tribute to her during the show, calling her the "greatest Angel of all time."
Aside from the tiny lingerie and crystal-encrusted bras Victoria's Secret has made its signature, the models' hair—more natural than ever this year—and makeup had every beauty editor gawking backstage. That rosy-nude lip that looked completely effortless? Those "woke up like this" waves? It's all #goals. We wanted to know every product they were wearing, and thankfully, we got the inside scoop.
The gorgeous nude lip—Victoria's Secret Velvet Matte Cream Liquid Lip in Showstopper ($14)—took on a rosier hue on some models and peachier one on others, depending on their skin tone, and was layered with clear gloss to give the lips a slightly more voluminous look. Paired with the show's lead makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury's trademark glowy skin, the models looked ethereal but not overdone.
The tousled waves came courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Anthony Turner, who used the Conair InfinitiPro 3Q Heat Protect Hair Dryer ($60) and Conair Infiniti Pro 2-in-1 Stainless Styler ($50) to eliminate frizz and create loose waves that would hold up throughout the night.
On the nails, lead nail artist Hien Pham went with a short, oval shape and either LeChat Dare to Wear Innocence or LeChat Dare to Wear Just Breathe for a chic, neutral look, and models for VS PINK wore a perky bubblegum shade from the Dare to Wear line called True Honesty to match the collection's bright, playful vibe.
