You might not rock wings 365 days a year, but who doesn't want bronzed skin and voluminous tresses? In honor of the brand's runway show in New York tonight, we caught up with Alessandra Ambrosio to get all the details on an angel's pre-show beauty routine. We also asked about what she uses at home to get angel-like bedhead and what's earned a permanent place in her makeup bag. You may have to wait until December 10th to see the show, but you can check out all of her must-haves right now.
Ambrosio doesn't hesitate when asked for her pre-show beauty secret: вЂњI use Joanna Vargas' Exfoliating Mask ($75): you rub it in like a scrub, but leave it on like a mask,вЂќ she says. The model follows the mask with her normal routine of Clarins' Toning Lotion With Camomille ($22) and Joanna Vargas' Daily Hydrating Cream ($75). вЂњIt's my pre-show beauty secret.вЂќ
A Victoria's Secret angel has a very specific look-bronzed skin, big hair, and nude lips-and it's one that Ambrosio's adopted in real life. The products that get here there? M.A.C.'s Bronzing Powder ($25), Oribe's Dry Texture Spray ($39), and her must-have lip color: Victoria's Secret Lipstick ($12) in Whisper. вЂњI think a nude lip is very sexy.вЂќ
вЂњSometimes I'll just apply lip balm over a nude lip liner,вЂќ she says.
On days off, the mother of two keeps it simple, applying Cle de Peau's Concealer ($70) and RMS Beauty's Lip2Cheek ($36) in Promise. вЂњI just blend a little bit of the Lip2Cheek onto my lips and cheeks for everyday. It's the perfect creamy pink color.
Ambrosio stays loyal to her go-to mascara and eyeliner: Benefit's They're Real! Mascara ($23) and YSL Long-Wear Waterproof Eye Pencil ($30), both of which she likes for their quick and easy application. вЂњThis mascara sticks to every single lash!вЂќ she says.
вЂњVictoria's Secret has this great brush with sparkles that we use before shows,вЂќ Ambrosio says about the brand's Instant Bronzing Shimmer Powder ($24). вЂњIt gives this really nice shimmer that's perfect for the runway.вЂќ
вЂњI love the new Chloe perfume,вЂќ Ambrosio says of Chloe's Roses de Chloe Eau de Toilette Spray ($120).
"My daughter always steals these out of my bag,вЂќ Ambrosio says of EOS' Organic Lip Balm Spheres ($3). вЂњMy favorites are the fruit and the mint flavors,вЂќ she says.
вЂњI prefer to play up my eyes on the red carpet,вЂќ Ambrosio says.
вЂњThis shadow feels creamy, but turns into a powder,вЂќ Ambrosio says about Chanel's Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow ($36). вЂњI wear the gold shade the most, but I also like the taupe and the black.вЂќ Try the shades Initiantion, Mirifique, and Convoitise.Victoria's Secret Lipstick $12ShopClarins Toning Lotion with Camomille $22ShopRMS Beauty Lip2Cheek $36ShopEOS Organic Lip Balm Sphere $3ShopYSL Long-Wear Waterproof Eye Pencil $30ShopNeutrogena Pink Grapefruit Face Wash $7ShopJoanna Vargas Exfoliating Mask $75ShopInstant Bronzing Shimmer Powder Instant Bronzing Shimmer Powder $24ShopJoanna Vargas Daily Hydrating Cream $75ShopChanel Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow $36ShopCle de Peau Concealer $70ShopBenefit They're Real!
