A glowy healthy-looking skin is a must for all Victoria’s Secret models. Although these girls have been genetically blessed, a glowy skin takes some work. Victoria’s Secret Angel Jasmine Tookes spilled her secrets on how to get a super-natural glowing skin makeup look perfect for day wear. We are always very excited when supermodels share their beauty secrets considering the fact they have a chance to work with the best beauty experts out there. Jasmine Tookes told Vogue her best tips for glowing skin, so take a look at the video below for more details.
Although Jasmine Tookes has a flawless skin with no makeup, there are still some tricks that can elevate your glow. The model’s go-to beauty tools are those small sponges you can get at the drugstore and in bulk. As you can see Tookes prefers there little sponges over multiple other expensive beauty tools. These cheap small sponges seem to work wonders on Jasmine’s skin. She used one of these to apply every liquid and cream product in the tutorial – and it seems to blend everything flawlessly! The best thing: you can throw it away after a single use. This way you avoid bacteria from developing on the sponge and transferring to your face later. This is not something you could do with your $20 beauty blender. So Jasmine’s unexpected blending tool is worth trying. Plus that’s one of the secrets to an Angel’s glowing skin.
You’d think that a makeup tutorial for glowing skin won’t involve much makeup products, but Jasmine proves the opposite. These makeup look might look natural, but the model layers on many products to get a flawless complexion. The model did everything from cream contouring, concealer to setting powder and eye makeup. Tookes’s feels very confident with makeup. She admitted that if she wasn’t a model, she would have been a makeup artist.
“It’s all about the cheek glow,” Jasmine Tookes makes a statement while treating her cheeks with a seamless blending of the products.
And she is 100% right! In this Instagram era, you got to keep your glow game strong. At the end of the day, that cheek glow has to show on your selfies. Don’t forget to watch the video to find out Jasmine’s smart lipstick application trick and see the final look. Glowing skin might take some efforts, but is most certainly worth your time. Just follow Jasmine’s tips and you’ll get that blinding celebrity glow.
Victoria’s Secret‘s Angels know a thing or two about bombshell beauty. After all, that’s a part of their job duties. The lingerie brand keeps the makeup looks natural on their runway shows and campaigns. All their models are genetically-blessed, but still, none of them doesn’t wake up with a beaming highlighter and sexy smokey eye. Sara Sampaio will teach you how to do both in this short tutorial below.
Sara Sampaio has mastered the bombshell makeup look after 5 years with Victoria’s Secret. The Portuguese beauty can doll-up in minutes which is something that every busy woman needs in her life. Anway, radiant skin is the key to seamless makeup application. Model Sara Sampaio is perfectly aware of that fact, so she layers skincare products before applying makeup. Multiple step skincare routine isn’t a luxury habit anymore – it’s a must. So, get all your facial oils, mists, serums and moisturizers ready to prep your skin for a full glam.
As you can see Sara uses a generous amount of moisturizer on her face and besides genetics that might be one of the reasons why her skin is so flawless. You don’t need too much makeup when your skin is so perfect. You see, Sampaio uses only a lightweight tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. Anyway, every woman tends to exaggerate with some makeup product. Some apply layers of mascara, others contour aggressively, Sara, on the other hand, uses a lot of highlighter.
“You could see me from space,” the model says while applying layers of highlighter on her cheeks. Bonus: don’t forget to take a moment and admire the glow, just like Sara did.
The model has a surprisingly undemanding eye-makeup routine. She uses the same brush for the entire look, which could be very practical especially if you are on the go all the time. First, she uses a shimmery eyeshadow all over her eyelids. Then she deepens the look with two darker shades that give the smokey effect. Believe it or not, her bombshell eye makeup look is about three earthy eyeshadows and one makeup brush. No need to blend until you collapse, Sara has a way easier makeup routine to get you on point. Lastly, she opted for the classic smokey eye & nude lip which is always a winning combination.
Sampaio also has a natural solution to tame her hair and get it ready for an off-duty walk around town. Watch the video to see the final look and all the products she uses.
Olivier Rousteing is taking Balmain places that no other designer has. The innovative wunderkind has done so much with the brand, which is very impressive. Their long-anticipated high-end collaboration with Victoria’s Secret is finally out. Olivier designed a limited-edition capsule for the lingerie brand. Dubbed #VSxBalmain, you can expect many unique looks from this exclusive line.
“The Victoria’s Secret team have been invited to my Balmain shows many times, and I have also been a guest on the VS front row. A year ago they came to me and said, why don’t we do something together? We came up with the punk theme, which is something really new for me. There are so many reference points for punk, from books to editorials in Vogue. I regrouped a lot of ideas I had in my mind for Balmain, as I channel a lot of rock ‘n’ roll in the collections.”- Rousteing told Vogue.
Balmain teased the collaboration many times since the brands made the announcement. Olivier’s designs feature the recognizable elements, heavy embellishments, and a punk theme. You will see a lot of studs, mesh, plaids, safety pins and more. The most expensive piece in the line is the bejeweled Swarovski Long Line Bra that costs $248. There is a matching pair of panties, also decorated with Swarovski crystals that are available for $48.
For each bra, you will find panties in the same style. You can buy the items as a pair, or get them separately.
Balmain x Victoria’s Secret capsule will be available both online and in-stores. The official release date is November 29. This is the first time that the lingerie brand is collaborating with a luxury fashion house on a runway and retail collection. So far they’ve only partnered with Brian Atwood who designs VS’s spectacular shoes. But they’ve always been exclusive for the runway. This year once again Atwood had the honors to introduce his latest work designed for the most sought-after show in the world.
The Victoria’s Secret fashion show will air on November 28 on CBS at 10 p.m. Tomorrow you can take a sneak peek of how Olivier’s designs look on the gorgeous Angels and choose your favorite. That way you can follow the mesmerizing extravaganza and see most of the limited-edition pieces up-close. You will be very surprised to hear that everyone can get their hands on the capsule since the prices start at $28.
Victoria’s Secret 2017 Show in Shanghai was all about the drama. From the very beginning to the very end the show was followed up by a series of surprising events. Anyway, that almost didn’t stop the lingerie giant to throw a spectacular show. The show went without many roadblocks (although some famous faces were missing), but ended in a way that nobody desired. The Shanghai police entered the Mercedes-Benz Arena at the after party and signaled the crowd to leave. Moreover, the Chinese model Ming Xi experienced every model’s worst nightmare – she fell on the runway. Thankfully fellow model Gizele Oliveira offered a hand to Ming, so she was able to get back on her feet again.
Bella Hadid seems to suffer from wardrobe malfunctions quite often. The model earned her Angel status this year and she couldn’t hide her excitement. She carelessly danced at the end of the show celebrating her wings. At that moment of joy, the top part of Bella’s nipples slipped out of the sexy bralette. But that wasn’t such a big deal as the fact that her sister Gigi Hadid couldn’t share the runway with her this year. The megapopular model was denied a Chinese visa because of a controversial Instagram video of her impersonating Buddha.
Gigi wasn’t the only model denied for Chinese visa this year. Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva, Irina Sharipova, and Dasha Khlystun, as well as singer Katty Perry, couldn’t make it to the show because of similar reasons. Perry was set to perform at the Victoria’s Secret 2017 Show but was denied entry because of a fashion choice she made in 2015. Luckily Harry Styles, Miguel, Leslie Odom Jr. and Jane Zhang were there to heat the atmosphere and entertain the guests.
As Miguel serenaded one of the longest-serving Angels, Alessandra Ambrosio, we witnessed a moment that will soon be history. The Brazillian beauty revealed that this is going to be the last time she wears the infamous Victoria’s Secret wings. After this year, the supermodel will retire from being an Angel, so she can spend more time with her kids and focus on her acting career. Karlie Kloss and Candice Swanepoel, on the other hand, returned on the Victoria’s Secret Show after they retired. We have yet to see if Ambrosio will follow their steps.
The show was divided into six sections: Punk Angel; Goddesses; Millennial Nation; Winter’s Tale; Porcelain Angel and Nomadic Angels. The most anticipated part of the show was the Punk Angel because it featured looks designed by Olivier Rousteing from Balmain. Models flaunted intricately embellished ensembles in Balmain‘s edgy aesthetic. There will be a capsule by the designer available in the lingerie brand’s stores a day after the show airs. November 28 is the date to mark on your calendar if you want to see everything that happened at the 2017 Victoria’s Secret show.

The Victoria’s Secret Show is one of the most demanding fashion shows. Besides the million-dollar budget meant to bring a unique experience to the brand’s fans, the models are also here to flaunt their best figure yet. One thing is for sure: Being Victoria’s Secret model isn’t an easy task. Every model set to walk the show goes through strict diet and workout plan. The model Sara Sampaio gave us a sneak peek of her intense workout routine that got her ready for the spectacular Victoria’s Secret 2017 show in Shanghai. Take a look at the video and maybe steal some exercises from Sampaio’s killer workout routine. If you haven’t marked “get in shape” as done from your New Year’s resolution, you still have time to get there.
The Portuguese beauty has been part of Victoria’s Secret show since 2013. According to the model, she has always dreamed of becoming Victoria’s Secret model, but her parents didn’t allow her to pursue a modeling career before she finished high school. For years agents would send photos of the model to Victoria’s Secret bosses but she didn’t get picked. Finally, in 2013 the model was invited to be a part of the brand’s annual show. Two years later she earned her Angel’s wings. Besides getting the privilege to wear those spectacular wings on the runway, the models who have Angels status don’t have to go through the castings every year. So, for now, Sara Sampaio’s spot on the runway is guaranteed. Sara is also a regular on the runway shows on many high-fashion brands such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Balmain, Miu Miu, Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs, Moschino, Dolce & Gabanna and more.
Besides Sara’s impressive portfolio, the model opened up on Instagram about an unpleasant situation from her career where magazine published a photo of her that contained nudity without her consent. The model joined the list of many other women who opened up about sexual harassment in the show business and in general any industry. Sara Sampaio’s goal was to inspire young models and women, in general, to speak out about such issues and feel empowered to say “NO” in similar situations.
In the video, you will also find Sara’s mother vegetable-packed soup recipe. Sampaio found the right timing to include her mother’s nutritious soup in her diet. A healthy diet is another key to achieving a Victoria’s Secret model-like silhouette. So, we could all use a healthy soup recipe before the Holiday season.
The Brazilian beauty Adriana Lima is one of the longest-serving Angels of the lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret. She has been with the brand since 1999 and signed her contract in 2000. The Victoria’s Secret 2017 Show will be the 17th for Lima. The model had the honors to open the annual show 5 times in her career. She wore the infamous fantasy bra three times so far, in 2008, 2010 and 2014. But Adriana Lima has no intention to hang up her wings anytime soon. “My plan is to be here as long as gravity lets me,” she said in an interview. Besides her arrangements with Victoria’s Secret, the model has walked runways for multiple luxury high fashion brands such as Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Balmain, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs and more.
With such an impressive portfolio you’d think that Adriana Lima is high-maintenance. But the supermodel has a simple glam-up routine that takes less than 2 minutes. See Lima performing her party glam-up magic in this short video below.
We can’t say that we know any other woman who can get ready for the night in less than 2 minutes. Adriana Lima has worked with the best makeup artists in the business, so she probably picked some tips on how to get ready so fast. As a supermodel, Lima travels a lot, so she doesn’t always have enough time to doll-up for hours.
“I love makeup,” she says at the beginning of the video. Makeup is part of her life all these years and that’s why Adriana Lima can get ready in less than 2 minutes. As you can see in the video, Adriana prefers fewer products on her face. She mixes primer and BB cream (even for a party glam) and applies it with her hands(another surprising fact). A-listers are obsessed with glowy skin, so Adriana Lima is. The model admitted that she doesn’t like a matte finish on her skin.
For the eye makeup, she opts for nudes (classic) and defines her lower lash line with a darker brown eyeshadow. The model lightly applies a shimmery eyeshadow all over her eyelids, and that’s it for the eyes. She finishes off with mascara and continues on her face. She has no contouring and no brow routine ( makes life so much easier). But she is always indecisive on the lipstick. According to the model, she loves to switch lipsticks and experiment with different lip colors. Sounds like a fun thing to do before going out!
You probably remember those weird lip plumping tools that were all over your Instagram feed couple years ago. It all started with Kylie Jenner and the Kylie lip challenge. All those lip plumping techniques weren’t on the safe side. Thankfully, the Victoria’s Secret Angel Josephine Skriver shared her genius lip-plumping trick. Take a look at the video to see how you can get fuller lips in just seconds with her simple hack.
Being an Angel isn’t a simple job like many would think. You can’t walk with a puffy face around (probably). Josephine Skriver uses a Jade roller to deal with her morning puffiness. She also uses face oil and massages it into her face – and the puffiness is gone. Good to know that there is a 5-minute Angel-approved solution to refresh yourself in the morning.
Josephine Skriver has some serious brow routine. “If your brows are great, everything is great,” the model states. We can’t agree more on this. Skriver has a multiple step brow routine and we are here for it. First, she uses a tiny eyebrow pencil to color hairs of her brows. Then she uses brow pomade to accent her brows even more. For a more natural look, she brushes her brows with the spooley brush. The model revealed that she dyes her brows sometimes with men’s beard dye. She probably has some of the most innovative model-approved beauty tips.
Skriver likes to plump her lips with a toothbrush. According to the model brushing your lips with a toothbrush exfoliates, plumps them and gives them more color at the same time. There you have it – naturally fuller, smooth lips in just seconds. The brushing will make your lips swell a bit but nothing too serious like those challenges that went viral.
Back in October, the lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret announced a partnership with the French fashion house Balmain. The creative director of Balmain Olivier Rousteing was tapped to design custom looks for the lingerie’s brand annual show that is set to happen in Shanghai. Besides the looks for the show (that are expected to be spectacular), the two fashion authorities will surprise us with a capsule collection that will be available in Victoria’s Secret stores just a day after the long-anticipated show. Each year Victoria’s Secret spares about $12 million to put this spectacle together. So, we can expect even more extravaganza now that Rousteing’s designs will appear on the runway.

You would be surprised how many things Balmain and Victoria’s Secret have in common. Balmain is well-known for its bodycon extremely sexy designs. Whenever Balmain holds a fashion show, Victoria’s Secret Angels and regulars are invited to model the pieces. Both brands design for women who aren’t afraid to show some skin and be comfortable with it. The Victoria’s Secret x Balmain collab will treat these ladies with pieces they can wear from the bedroom to the streets and parties. Victoria’s Secret collaboration with Balmain is the first time the lingerie brand has collaborated with another fashion house on an entire collection.
Both brands previously teased what we should all expect on the runway show in Shanghai that will happen very soon. Now they released more videos with a much closer look at the designs. Rousteing’s signature pieces will infuse the show with a couture vibe. The designs carry Balmain’s intricate aesthetic. You can see a lot of Rousteing’s craftsmanship and spiked details. One of the videos shows an oversized heavily beaded and sequined jacket paired with fishnet tights and over-the-knee boots. There are also more spiked-up leather looks and accessories.
Victoria’s Secret Angel Jasmine Tookes also revealed her punky Balmain wings. The model will wear heart-shaped wings made of safety pins.
“One secret that you guys probably don’t know is that the Angels make their own wings. This took me like 800 hours to do this,” Jasmine tells Vogue on her fitting for the show.
Well, they don’t, but she added a few extra safety pins to feel included in the process. The model went from pink to punk for her upcoming Victoria’s Secret show wearing one of the looks that Balmain did for the brand. More to come on November 28 at 10.p.m.

We are only a few weeks away from this year’s Victoria’s Secret show. It is the biggest fashion event, marked on everyone’s calendars. We already know the full model cast and the location. Another moment we’ve been expecting with anticipation is the reveal of the Fantasy Bra. Every year Victoria’s Secret surprises with a stunning, luxurious bra that is worth millions. But now the wait is finally over. Brazilian model Lais Ribeiro is the one who will have the honors to present the infamous Fantasy Bra. Ribeiro gave Vogue a sneak peek of the lavish lingerie. She also proved that is comfortable to wear it during heavy lifting.
The brand revealed the big news just several hours ago along with a picture of Lais wearing it. The “Champagne Nights” fantasy bra was designed by renowned jeweler Mouawad and the estimated worth is over two million dollars. This is Mouawad exclusive design for Victoria’s Secret and his studio spent more than 350 hours to make it. It is bejeweled with almost 6.000 precious rocks including diamonds, blue topaz in 18 karat gold and yellow sapphires. The 27-year-old Brazilian bombshell will be wearing the Fantasy Bra for the first time in her career. This is the biggest honor for the Angels and has a special professional and emotional meaning for them. Before Lais, supermodels such as Adriana Lima, Gisele Bündchen, Candice Swanepoel also wore a luxury bra. The show is scheduled for November 28 and it will take place in Shanghai.
Lais has an interesting story of how she became a model. The gorgeous Brazilian started modeling right after she gave birth to her first son. She appeared at the Sao Paolo Fashion Week and she soon became the most sought-after model in the world. Her first appearance on Victoria’s Secret runway show was in 2010. Lais became an Angel in 2015.
