The Victoria’s Secret fashion show is inarguably one of the most anticipated annual fashion shows. Men and women alike marvel and the beauty (not to forget the sex appeal) of the models upon the catwalk, while women are also just as likely to check out the hairstyles and the make-up that goes to transform a model into a Victoria’s Secret Angle. The Victoria’s Secret 2012 fashion show had 5 segments this year and, while the models kept on changing costumes and lingerie, their hair and make up remained the same throughout.

Victoria’s Secret were nice enough to send across the details for the hair, make up and nail styles used for their 2012 fashion show. We’ve broken each of the looks up below, and provided a list of the products used further on into this piece.

Victoria’s Secret fashion show make up

By Tom Pecheux.

The Victoria’s Secret Angels make up consisted of sultry brown eyes, terracotta blush cheeks and glossy nude pouts. For past fashion shows the Angels have had a tan look with lots of bronzers. In 2012, however, the make up look’s creator Tom Pecheux decided that he wanted a healthier look with beachy blushes and highlights.

A brown eye shadow was used on the crease of the eyes, black eyeliner and mascara were put on the top lashes, while brown eyeliner and mascara was put on the bottom lid.

It is a very natural look that would be perfect for anyone.

Victoria’s Secret fashion show hairstyle

By Orlando Pita.

As usual, the Angels donned sexy and tousled waves. In 2012 the hairstyle was created using a one-inch curling irons and So So hair products. According to Orlando Pita, the hairstyle’s creator, the aim was to create something a little bit beachy and little bit messy but still very shiny and glamourous. Extensions were added to add more depth to the loose waves.
