While the life of a Victoria’s Secret supermodel involves, no doubt, a constant barrage of fan-like adoration from all sides, ask Lindsey Ellingson about true love and it’s not a definition that comes easily. At the launch of Victoria’s Secret’s new Gorgeous Push-Up Bra and new fragrances Simply Gorgeous and Bombshell in Love, we got the lovely Miss Ellingson pondering on that question.
And if you’re wondering what Lindsay’s Valentine’s Day beauty routine entails, wonder no longer – she also shared her tips for looking great come February 14.
Read the full interview after the break.
What’s your definition of love?
Oh man, that’s a tough one.
I can only describe love by the way that you feel inside. The first time I fell in love it was a feeling that I had never experienced before, and you get those butterflies in your stomach.
There are those sayings like ‘love is kind’ and ‘love is honest’. But it’s still hard to describe it other than to say it’s the most amazing feeling.
Do you think your definition of love has changed through your life?
Yes, I think it has. My first love was my prince charming and I was up in the clouds. Now it’s more realistic. It’s all still love, but you grow up and you learn what you like in a guy. So you’re just more realistic about it, and you don’t fall in love with the wrong guy – instead you say, “nope, red flag.”
Is that your key Valentine’s Day tip then, don’t go out with the wrong guy.
What other tips would have to go along with that then?
I think it’s fun to wear red lipstick on Valentine’s Day, it makes you look very sexy.
Wear a good fragrance, such as the [Victoria’s Secret] Simply Gorgeous fragrance. It’s light and it’s fresh, and it’s also a great gift idea for guys.
For Valentine’s Day I love to go all out. So I’d recommend doing up your whole look. Curl your hair – I’d actually do it just like I have mine done now. Pair it with your red lipstick, go all out, and just try to feel sexy.
