Although some of the regulars missed out – say hi Gigi Hadid- we weren’t short of gorgeous girls like Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio and Bella Hadid, who owned their runway debut in Shanghai. See all the looks before the show airs on Nov 29- including the collaboration with Balmain for a punk take on underwear like never before- and scroll down for the hair and make-up used to glam the girls pre-show.
"The overall look featured a smoky eye that’s slightly ‘naughty’," said head make-up artist Tom Pecheux. "Taupe and brown shades were applied with a smudged brown liner on the lower lash line that was swept up and blended into [the] eyeshadow. Highlighter was added to the inner corners of the eye for a sexy, glowing effect." So how was the sultry smoky eye created? We spotted a L’Oreal Paris eyeshadow palette in this sneak peek- thanks Maria Borges!
For that plump pout, Pecheux customised the colour to suit the individual’s complexions, revealing the exact colour was the Victoria’s Secret Velvet Lip Matte Cream Lip Stain in Adored. "[It’s] the perfect base for lips; simply dab onto the lips to enhance a pink natural lip colour."
And for their covetable locks? Of course, the Victoria’s Secret signature waves were ever-present, but this year, they were built from a blow-dry using the Dyson Supersonic (as we spotted above in Bella’s backstage pic) and then tonged to amp up the girls’ existing texture. "Hair had volume and separation for a sexy, undone feel with movement," explained hair stylist, Anthony Turner.
