It’s known as the City of Light, and this year it also be­came the City of An­gels as the Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret Fash­ion Show hit the run­way for the first time in Paris. The Grand Palais, on the Av­enue des Champs-Élysées, was the suit­ably glamorous set­ting for the an­nual fash­ion ex­trav­a­ganza that can be months in the mak­ing and fea­tures multi-mil­lion-dol­lar pieces and, of course, the head-turn­ing mod­els, aka An­gels, with those fan­tas­ti­cal wings. It’s these glama­zons who epit­o­mise mod­ern glam­our, from step­ping out in show-stop­ping at­tire to their flaw­less make-up.

As of­fi­cial make-up part­ner for the Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret Fash­ion Show Paris 2016, global beauty com­pany Max Fac­tor’s team of make-up artists cre­ated the sig­na­ture look of glow­ing skin, vi­brant eyes and flut­ter­ing lashes as seen on the An­gels, in­clud­ing Stella Maxwell, who is the new­est Max Fac­tor am­bas­sador. Maxwell, an in­ter­na­tional model who has ap­peared on the cov­ers of over­seas edi­tions of Vogue and walked for Chanel, Marc Ja­cobs and Ver­sace among oth­ers, joins su­per­model Candice Swanepoel, a mem­ber of the Max Fac­tor fam­ily since 2013. With the party sea­son in full swing, the An­gels’ beauty look is one that suits most women and is sim­ple to re-cre­ate. It starts with Max Fac­tor Mir­a­cle Touch Skin Smooth­ing Foun­da­tion, the of­fi­cial foun­da­tion of this year’s show. Ac­cord­ing to Liz Kelsh, Max Fac­tor Aus­tralia head make-up artist, the all-in-one con­cealer, foun­da­tion and pow­der gives “lu­mi­nous, flaw­less skin ev­ery time” and of­fers “the best of both worlds” as it goes from a solid to liq­uid when ap­plied and then sets again.

For look-at-me eyes, de­fine and contour us­ing the Max Fac­tor Masterpiece Nude Pal­ette, a mix of eight matt and shim­mery shades, and then add drama with Max Fac­tor False Lash Ef­fect Mas­cara. A slick of mois­tur­is­ing Max Fac­tor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Ma­roon Dust com­pletes the look that will take you from day to night all sum­mer long.
