Forget the wings! Here’s all you need to look and feel like an Angel. Using the below tips we recreated the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show look on contributor Christina Ballinger. Move over Adriana Lima! FACE & CHEEKS Transforming supermodels into angels requires a perfect canvas of flawless, glowing skin. STEP 1 Prep skin with primer and buff an SPF-infused tinted moisturizer on top. Foundation can be used if more coverage is desired but the look should be super light and natural. STEP 2 Press a little concealer in your custom shade over any imperfections. STEP 3 Apply bronzer over the top of the forehead, the temples, the cheekbones and the jawline. STEP 4 Swirl blush onto apples of cheeks slightly up towards temples. STEP 5 For that iconic Angel glow, dust a loose pigment gold eyeshadow onto temples and the tops of cheekbones.   EYES The eye look is super flirty and feminine—all about lashes and liner! STEP 1 Start with a primer on lids as a base. Make eyes sparkle by swiping a little brightener underneath. STEP 3 Highlight the browbone and inner corner of the eye with a loose pigment gold eyeshadow. STEP 4 Run black liquid liner along the upper lashline, starting at the inner corner and extending slightly beyond and upward. STEP 5 Coat top and bottom lashes with a black defining mascara.   LIPS It wouldn't be Victoria's Secret without a pouty pale lip. STEP 1 Start with a lips scrub to exfoliate then hydrate lips. STEP 2 Apply a moisturizing lipstick in a pink champagne shade. STEP 3 Top the lipstick with a sheer coral gloss, for fullness and shine.
