As summer starts to drift away and we gear into fall, there are many things to look forward to, especially the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in December. The shows often leave us awe of the luxurious wings, entertaining performances and, of course, the beauty that envelopes the models.
We did some digging to find all of the beauty tips and tricks that Victoria’s Secret very own models practice and use on themselves to prep their bodies, skin and hair for their biggest event of the year. Keep scrolling to get all up in their beauty business:
According to Harper’s Bazaar, Tookes’ beauty secret involves icing her face every night before bed, "I learned to ice my face right before going to bed from my mom's dermatologist a long time ago and I've done it ever since. You take an ice cube and run it all over your face until it melts away and it leaves your pores really tight and your face really firm."
Tookes’ must have products are simple: Cetaphil to wash her face and some vitamin E oil afterwards to ensure her skin is hydrated and vibrant for the next morning. When it comes to her hair, she keeps it at a simple wave which she achieves using her spiral curling iron and a few drops of Moroccan oil.
Joan smalls believes in moisturizing… a lot. Her must-have products include mixing Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair with Estée Lauder Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF15, according to Vogue. Smalls is also a fan of working and finds the most satisfaction by remaining active through boxing, cardio and pilates. While she is a busy woman, she ensures to try to work out once a day. However, if things get a little hectic, she tries to sneak in at least 30 minutes of a quick workout. Talk about dedication!
In an Into The Gloss interview, Dunn revealed all of her beauty secrets and shared that her beauty routine hasn’t really changed since she’s had her son — it’s actually become more intense. The mother and model follows an 11-step beauty routine which consists of Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm to cleanse her face and followed by Pixi Glow Tonic and SK-II Essence. She also uses a vitamin C serum and Zelens' Hydro-Shiso Balancing Moisturizer.
Lais Ribeiro doesn’t skip out on her water intake, which explains her gorgeous skin. When she had a chat with StyleCaster, Ribeiro shared some of her go-to products, "(I start by) washing my face with Burt’s Bees Orange Essence Facial cleanser, followed by L’Oreal Hydra Facial Toner. Then I use either L’Oreal’s Youth Code moisturizer or Magic Skin Beautifier BB Crème. Both are great for evening, are hydrating, plus they contain SPF."
Ribeiro also makes sure that she never falls asleep with her makeup on — a great tip to remember to remove all of your makeup is having makeup removal wipes near your bed for those very tired nights.
"Body oil and shea butter," are what model Grace Bol swears by and when the summer hits, she ensures to have a nice, cold lemonade by her side.
When sitting with Coveteur, she also mentioned her weakness is coffee, "I do a lot of coffee, but I still drink it hot, no matter what the weather." While caffeine consumption should always be regulated, using coffee scrubs are always great to ensure your skin is smooth, even and awakened.
This Victoria’s Secret model swears by oils to remedy any hair or skin woes, "I love face oils and cream for hair. I love to take care of my face and my hair — those are two important things for me. I think for me it’s like, always take it off, your makeup, before sleep, and always face oil," she dished to W Magazine.
When it comes to her makeup, she keeps it simple by using a face oil to give her a natural glow, a dab of concealer, blush and a touch of mascara to brighten her eyes.
Getting and staying in shape is a big part of any model’s regime and Estevão is no different. "I don't have trainers, but I do workouts by myself. I take classes like Zumba, yoga and boxing," she explained to W Magazine. When it comes to her skin, she opts for a natural, no makeup route. She remains moisturized, especially during the winter months, and enjoys a lot of rest and relaxation to keep herself glowing from the inside out.
Aiden Curtiss shared her zit secrets with PopSugar and we were totally here for zit secrets from a Victoria’s Secret model. "At first I feel out what kind of zit it is. If it’s the kind you can’t pop straight away, I leave it, and I don’t touch it because if you keep touching it, it’s going to become bigger and more irritated. If I can pop it, I get it out straight away and just clean that and let it heal. But usually, I just let it chill. Those ones on the chin that you can feel but can’t see, I leave them. I hate those ones. Those ones you don’t touch."
