The make-up for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2012 looked surprisingly more natural this year than the usual over bronzed look . As I can see from the pics, even the dramatic smoky eye with false eyelashes, was replaced with a very light and subtle smoky eye in neutrals. Of course, the Angel’s skin and cheeks were still glowing with a healthy pink sheen and lips were kept in natural warm pink.
This is my personal interpretation of the look, hope you liked it!
