When it comes to sexy makeup, the Victoria’s Secret Angels have the market cornered, and the look created by the brand’s makeup artist Polly Osmond in the video above is one we’ll be wearing all season long! Dark eyes and oxblood lips were all over the fall runways, so Osmond balanced the two elements on Lily Aldridge to impart a smoldering effect with a vibrant hint of color. “You can transition this look by using a lighter color for the day, then build it up for night time,” she said. “Don’t use so much blusher, keep that simple.” Equipped with a set of VS Pro makeup brushes, Osmond began by blending the Color Flash Eye Shadow in Dark Side ($12; victoriassecret.com), and followed with an ample coating of mascara and a sweep of the brand’s Graphic Liner Pen ($14; victoriassecret.com). The Dramatic Matte Lipstick in Sparks Fly ($14; victoriassecret.com) was then applied with a brush to soften the color, providing the finishing touch. “I always start in the middle and work outwards,” Osmond added.
