Typically when we see Victoria’s Secret models, they’re rocking bombshell waves and a lit-from-within look we could only dream of. And we know what you’re thinking, “They can’t possibly maintain those beauty goals IRL?” Hate to break it to you, but they can, and they do. In fact, when left to their own devices, VS models’ beauty looks are even better off the catwalk. Take the makeup combo we spotted last night at the VS Swim Special. Not only were we obsessed with Jasmine Tookes‘s stunning pink eyeshadow, but it marks the second time we’ve seen a top model rocking a rosy lid.
We loved this trend so much, we reached out to makeup artist Camille Thompson, the woman behind Tookes’s amazing look, to learn exactly what eye products she used and how to recreate it at home.
Surprisingly, we learned Thompson’s inspiration was none other than punk rockers. (Not typically what you’d associate with a VS model, which makes us love it all the more, naturally.) “I love the punk rock era, so I really wanted Jasmine to exude rocker chic, of course, with a modern twist,” she explains. “Rich pinks, rose gold, and burgundies were my go-to colors.” And that amazing pink shadow? It’s actually a blend of five shades from Lime Crime’s Venus: The Grunge Palette ($32, limecrime.com). “I used Venus and Muse in her crease, Icon to deepen the crease, and Shell on her lower lid. For extra exaggeration, I used Aura as a highlight in her tear duct.” Leave it to a makeup artist to make the most out of one single palette. #MakeupGoals
But it’s not just the blend of pink shadow that we loved. The cat-eye that topped the lid was good enough to rival Adele‘s ’60s swoop. (Yes, we said it.) To get that perfect feline flick, Thompson used Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner ($25, sephora.com) above the lash line. “I love this eyeliner because it is very pigmented and does not budge on the waterline,” she says. Just be sure to work quickly! “You have to work quickly with this eyeliner as it dries quickly, so I smudged under her lash line immediately with some Muse and Icon eyeshadows.” Lastly, to get those look-at-me peepers, Thompson exaggerated Tookes’s lashes with Ardell Demi Wispies Natural lashes ($10, ulta.com) and a swipe of L’Oréal Telescopic Mascara ($10, ulta.com).
A Victoria’s Secret model-approved pink eyeshadow that can be created with one single palette? Consider us sold.
