It’s that time of the year again, when the Victoria’s Secret fashion show takes place, and we couldn’t be more excited to watch (while eating a pint of ice cream or maybe that’s just us?!) The show is airing December 2nd at 10 PM on ABC, but the actual show was filmed November 8th in New York City.

While we can’t wait to see the show, and the looks each model wore, we are also super excited to see what makeup looks that Beauty Goddess Charlotte Tilbury is creating for this year’s models. Charlotte Tilbury’s entire brand is based on the idea that everyone can do makeup and look fantastic. We may not have the exact tools she does but that doesn’t mean you can’t look just like a VS Angel. Here’s how you can recreate the Victoria’s Secret angel look at home. 


Charlotte is a firm believer in skincare and started to prep the models with her Dry Sheet Mask. She then applied some of her cult-favorite Magic Cream on the models. There’s nothing quite like this product on the market, but any sheet mask and lightweight moisturizer, such as the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream Moisturizer would work out fine. 

To start your look, apply an illuminating primer as a base. Charlotte used her famous Wonderglow, but you can get the same vibe by using the L’Oreal True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer or the CoverGirl Illuminating Primer

We’re sure the models have perfect skin, but for us real beauties who have a blemish every now and again, you can use an illuminating foundation to get that model flawless skin. We suggest the Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation or Colourpop Foundation. Continuing to create this flawless canvas, Charlotte used her Magic Away Concealer, but you can also use the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer to get the same look. 

The next step is to set the under-eye area ONLY! This way your complexion still has that dewy look but your concealer won't move. For setting powder, we adore the Beauty Bakerie Flour Setting Powder or the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eyes

After your under-eye is set, it's time to apply a cream blush and bronzer all over the cheeks and over your nose. Charlotte Tilbury suggests using a brush to pick up the product instead of using the cream product directly on your face. Fenty Beauty has some excellent cream products, such as their Match Stix Matte Skinstick, which are ideal for this kind of look. If you prefer a tube product instead of a stick, Glossier has the Cloud Paint. If cream products scare you, Charlotte also used her Filmstar Bronze and Glow Duo

The eye look this year was super simple and only required 1-2 eyeshadows. Charlotte used her Limited Edition Bigger Brighter Exagger-eyes Palette, but you can easily use your favorite nude brown or champagne colored eyeshadow. We suggest using Kylie Cosmetics single shadows in Topaz and Raspberry Sugar, or you can always opt for Maybelline City Mini Eyeshadow Palette in Downtown Sunrise. To get the look, apply the nude shade in your crease and then apply the champagne all over your lid and blend. 

For lashes, you can apply your favorite wispy lashes, such as the Ardell Lash Faux Mink Wispies, but if you hate fake lashes, check out the Too Faced Better Then Sex Mascara

For brows, Charlotte used a simple brow gel to give the angels' brows a natural vibe. We suggest using the Milk Makeup KUSH Fiber Brow Gel or Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel. Think of it like mascara for brows.

To finish off this look, Charlotte used a Victoria’s Secret Matte Cream Stain in Showstopper which is no longer available. Instead, check out the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in Venus or the Dose of Colors Lip Gloss in Just My Type
