The Pared-Back 2011 Victoria's Secret Makeup Look

Less is More: The Pared-Back Victoria's Secret Makeup Look

There are certain things you come to expect with the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show: killer bodies, luscious locks, shimmering limbs, faux lashes and a flutter that threatens to floor the front row. But lead makeup artist Tom Pecheux threw the rule book out for yesterday's parade, instead opting for a more natural look and banning the "fakeness" that has been the Victoria's Secret staple look for years. Instead Pecheux, Estée Lauder's Creative Makeup Director, focused on the skin, making the most of the models' early call time and treating their skin to a boosting ritual of Estée Lauder DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant SPF 15 and Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher. Of course bronzer couldn't be skipped entirely so Pecheux warmed the models' skin tone with Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Luminous Bronzer in Glitterati. As for the eyes, he turned to muse-of-the-moment Marilyn Monroe, giving the girls a '50s flick before finishing the look with Victoria's Secret Perfect Lipstick in Whisper with Sublime gloss over the top. Do you like the pared-back look or were you all for the fake lashes?
