“The vision was very California girl,” Victoria’s Secret makeup artist Lauren Cosenza, who made up Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and the other models, tells UsMagazine.com. “Lots of sunkissed, dewy skin, glossy lips and flirty lashes.”
Want to recreate the carefree beauty for yourself? Cosenza provided Us with some pointers:
Cosenza prepped the Angels with VS PRO Airbrush FX Primer ($14) then followed up with VS Soft Focus Foundation ($16). To add contour, she dusted VS Bronzer/Highlighter Trio ($14) under the cheekbones and followed up by applying a mix of the two darkest shades of the VS Eye Shadow Quad in Eye Contact ($15) on the top of the cheeks up to the side of the nose. “The look is a girl who got a little too much sun with her shades on,” she explains.
To make the models’ eyes pop, Cosenza applied three coats of VS PRO Voluptuous FX Mascara ($12) — “Do not be shy, coat it in,” she says — then lined the lower lashline with shimmery white VS Eye Liner in Bright ($8). Then she mixed the two darkest shades of the VS Eye Shadow Quad in Eye Contact ($15) and applied to the crease of the eye and added a mix of VS Brilliant Shimmer Shadow in Golddust ($10) and VS Eye Shadow Quad in Sultry ($15) under the lower lashline. The final touch? Running VS Lip Gloss in Glow ($10) through the eyebrows and over the browbone. “It gives a lush, dewy effect,” she says.
Cosenza dabbed VS Lip Liner in Foxy Brown ($8) and VS Lipstick in Icon ($12) to the center of the lips and blended outward, then finished off the look with a coat of VS Minerals Lip Gloss in Naughty ($10). “It creates a very alluring pouty effect,” she tells Us. “A just-bitten stain!”
