On the heels of the highly anticipated Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in London last week, I have decided to do a quick tutorial on how to get the coveted hair and makeup straight from the runway. Head makeup artist Dick Page created a classic Bombshell look with a light smokey eye, and hair master Akki Shirakawa created the beautiful lived-in waves every girl wishes for. Here is my interpretation of the look and how you can master it too!
I started with a layer of MAC Studio Fix Foundation (NC44) along with some MAC Prolongwear concealer in (NW25) under my eyes, and around my nose. On my eyebrows I used MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Spiked.
Taupe shadow all over lid

Continue shadow underneath 3/4 in
Smudge black eyeliner into outer corners
Apply light shimmer to inner corners
Pink blush then buffed out with bronzer
For lips I used MAC Spice to line the lips as well as color in the corners. I added OCC Lip tar in Trollop and blended it in with the liner, then topped it off with some CHANEL Rouge Allure Gloss in Sensuel for pinky nude pout.
and now for the hair! For a more in depth hair tutorial click here!
Start with hair that has been rough dryed with mousse. Clip up the crown, then split the bottom section in half. Prep the hair with a light spray.
Using a 1 inch curling iron or want, wrap chunks of hair around the iron in random directions.
Continue for the entire head, and flip the hair and finger through the curls.
Voila! Hair and Makeup, Angel Style~
YES. yes. yes. Everyone is obsessed about Kylie Jenner’s lips. Are they real? Are they fake? How could she start plastic surgery at such a young age? Is it just part of her maturing process? All of these questions come to mind, but nonetheless, people are talking. Why? Well for one it looks fantastic.
Kylie is the youngest of the Kardashian Klan, but in my eyes, by far the most badass. Yes I said it. She brings cool girls status to the next level. Oh how I wish I was 17 again. (well maybe not)
Regardless of the questionable surgery, she has been sporting some beautiful matte lipstick shades that evoke a spirit of the 90’s. Makes me want to pull out my MAC Stone lipliner. Sure she may have had injections, but here’s my trick for getting the same look, with a lot less pain.
First and foremost you must prep your lips! Make sure you are hydrated, and give your lips a good exfoliation. For a quick at home lip scrub, just take some olive oil and sugar and scrub generously, to reveal soft smooth hydrated lips.
- I used MAC Spice lip pencil to line the lips. If you don’t have Spice, pick a medium shade liner with a mauve, brown or rose base. (Kylie uses MAC lipliner in Whirl often) This is the most important part, as you will have to slightly overdraw the lips. nothing crazy or clownlike, just outside your natural lip line. Also make sure you round out the edges at your cupids bow and do not make them too sharp or pointy. Color in all the corners, and leave the middle open.
- Lipstick choice is imperative. Kylie uses a matte finish. There are several lipsticks you could use to achieve the look, but my favorite is MAC Taupe, or Buxom lip foundation in Undressed.
- Finish the look by highlighting just above your cupids bow to make the top lip look extra plump. The light reflects, and your lips will instantly look fuller! You can use a shimmery nude eyeshadow, or a cream highlighter.
Voila! A plush pout Kylie would be jealous of, sans injectables.
