An inspiration behind glowy and natural look for the show was one iconic Victoria’s Secret Angel: Gisele Bündchen.

‘One of my inspirations for the look was inspired by the healthy, happy, naturally flawless beauty look of Gisele — she embodies that signature fresh, glowing angel gorgeousness’ Charlotte said. 

‘I also wanted the makeup channel that Victoria’s Secret feeling. Victoria’s Secret is all about pure fun, joy and abandon,’ she continued. 

The first focus for the makeup team was to properly prep and moisturize the models’ skin before applying any other products. 

Charlotte used her secret to supermodel skin, the Instant Magic Dry Sheet Facial Mask ($22), to provide a radiant glow to the complexion before moisturizing with Charlotte’s Magic Cream ($29).  

Then the models’ skin was primed with Charlotte’s Wonderglow primer ($55) before using the Light Wonder Foundation ($46) to accent everyone’s natural complexion.

One key product used for the makeup look to create an ethereal glow was the Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette ($68). The bronzer helped sculpt out the cheekbones of each model before adding shimmer along the apples.

This glow was further amplified with Charlotte’s Diva Light Beauty Light Wand ($38) before applying the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder ($45) along the T-zone to finish the face.

For brows, Charlotte first brushed them up with her Brow Lift tool ($30) before using a pencil to gently fill in any gaps in upward strokes. Victoria’s Secret Brow or Never eyebrow gel ($12) was then used to fix any areas of the brow.

Charlotte also wanted to make the models’ eyes appear larger like an Instagram filter, so she used her Exagger-Eyes shadow palette ($53) to help make them pop. The glittery shadow was blended in a windmill motion across the lid before using a darker shad along the lash line to add definition. 

Eyes to Memerise in Rose Gold ($32) was then applied underneath the lower lash line to help heighten each models’ eye color. An ‘Angel Wing’ was added over top to elongate the eyes with the use of the Sophia eyeliner pencil ($22) in a chocolate-brown shade.

The lashes were then adorned with Victoria’s Secret Major Lash ($14) to give just the right length to be seen from down the runway.  

Moving onto lip, Charlotte wanted emphasis the pillow shape of the feature. 

This was created by first re-shaping the dimensions using Charlotte’s Lip Cheat lip liner ($22) in the shade Pillow Talk to fake fuller lips. She then applied Victoria’s Secrete Velvet Matte Creame in Showstopper ($14).

For just the right glisten to be seen by anyone in attendance, Charlotte applied Collagen Lip Bath ($35) over the top of the shade for a dewy glow. 

The entire beauty look was completed after Charlotte applied her Supermodel Body lotion ($65) to the models’ limbs to make the skin luxuriously smooth and glowing before they strutted their stuff down the runway.     

The 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on Dec. 2 on ABC.
