Victoria's Secret Angel

I love the Victoria's Secret fashion show and I look forward to it every year. The wardrobe, music and props are always so incredible and exciting! Of course, I always love the makeup, but the angels keep it very understated for a runway show. Their goal is to look as natural as possible while still being bombshells. I hope you enjoy  my rendition of the classic VS eye, all it takes is a bit of gold and brown with some winged-out lashes!

1. Prime the eyes to ensure crease-proof, long lasting, pigmented shadow application. I used Urban Decay's Primer Potion.
2. Take a matte brown shadow and blend it into the crease, following the length of the socket line.
3. Place a shimmery gold shadow on the center of the lid and lightly blend it into the brown.
4. Dab a shimmery peachy/cream colored highlight on the innermost corners of the eyes to brighten them and open them up.
5. Smudge a dark brown pencil liner onto the top lashline and set it with a brown eyeshadow.
6. Run the gold eyeshadow on the outer half of the bottom lashline and the peachy highlight color on the inner half of the lower lashline.
7. Add mascara and false lashes for the wide eyed, VS signature look. The style I used are called demi-wispies.
8. Highlight the browbone with a matte, cream colored eyeshadow.
9. Finish the look by filling in any sparse areas of the brows. I used my Anastasia Brow Wiz in 'Medium Ash'.
