Angels, indeed! While the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show doesn’t air until Sunday, December 2, the annual lingerie fete was filmed in NYC on Thursday, November 8. We’ve known for weeks now that celeb makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury would be dreaming up the bombshell beauty look for models like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Elsa Hosk, but now we know the exact products she and her team used for the big show.
“The look is an angelic filter for the face that enhances what nature has naturally blessed you with,” Tilbury said in a statement. “With this look you will cast a spell on the world!”
For a lit-from-within glow that shines as bright as the lights of the Big Apple, the models’ skin was first primed with the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow (nicknamed “Gisele-in-a-jar” in honor of *that* famous VS catwalk queen). To create a subtle contour effect, the artists used the brand’s Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette, applying a combo of the light and dark shades with a big fluffy brush to the highpoints of the face (think: across the temples, over the bridge of the nose, under the cheekbones).
In keeping with the natural beauty look, Tilbury’s team created flirty fringe with the lengthening and volumizing Victoria’s Secret Major Lashes Full Volume Mascara on the top and bottom lashes, while the rosy-hued Charlotte Tilbury Bigger Brighter Eyes Palette in Exagger-Eyes offered a slightly smokey effect.
Brows were kept simple, save for a bit of the Victoria’s Secret Brow or Never Eyebrow Gel, and the pout got a your-lips-but-better treatment courtesy of the Victoria’s Secret Velvet Matte Cream Liquid Lip in Showstopper.
When it came to crafting those signature glossy waves, Conair lead stylist Anthony Turner prepped the mane with a nourishing serum and volume-boosting mousse before blowing it out with the InfinitiPro by Conair Electronic Brushless Motor Styling Tool. To avoid a ringlet-like curl, hairstylists used the InfinitiPro by Conair 2-in-1 Styler and bent strands away from the face from the mid-shafts to the ends for a more undone look.
The finishing touches? Barely-there pink manis via LeChat’s Dare to Wear Innocence, Dare to Wear Just Breathe or Dare to Wear True Honesty, and a few spritzes of the fruity Victoria’s Secret Love Star fragrance.
