6 Victoria's Secret Angels Told Us Their Favorite Eye Creams
There are countless reasons to obsess over the Victoria's Secret Angels — like their boho beach waves, toned legs, and flirty personalities. But beauty girls know one category reigns supreme: their skin care routines. Models have a magical way of wearing tons of makeup for shows without breaking out. They wake up with gorgeous bare skin. And somehow they're always tan without any sun damage.
Backstage before the 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, we had to find out more of their antiaging must haves — specifically eye cream. Some use coconut oil, others prefer luxe Chanel creams. We also quizzed them on the best lip balms, how to wear glittery holiday makeup, and what it means to them to be part of the hottest show on TV.
Essential eye cream: I really like that Elizabeth Arden [cream]. It's so good. One, it’s just a nice texture for your eye, and two, I love the smell.
Favorite lip balm: I use that Rosebud lip balm. I love that.
Hometown beauty buy: Maybe some Clarins? I really like Clarins. It’s just really nice and easy. [Stella is from the UK.]
Feelings about glitter: Glitter? I love glitter. I’m obsessed with glitter. I love putting glitter on eyelids — that’s awesome. There is highlighter glitter [you can put] around your cheekbones and stuff. I love it.
Victoria’s Secret shout-out: I'm just excited to get out there and have fun with the musicians playing and do my thing.
Feelings about glitter: I love glitter! I'm more of a shimmer-on-the-cheek kind of girl. I don't like too much on the eye, but a nice amount on the eye is always good.
Victoria’s Secret shout-out: Honestly, the show is such a dream come true. So walking in it is a really big deal for me. I'm extremely excited. I just hope I don't cry.
Essential eye cream: My favorite eye cream? Honestly, I don’t have one eye cream [that] I like to use. If you have a bad night and your eyes are puffy, I like to put some cold compresses onto it. I don’t use too much eye cream. I try to keep it natural. I like argan oil on the skin and whole body. That’s one of my favorites. Sometimes I can get vitamin E in oil form, and I put that on my face at night.
Favorite lip balm: Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue Lip Balm, because it’s Winter and sometimes you need something stronger to moisturize and keep your lips [from getting] chapped. So that’s perfect for the Winter.
Hometown beauty buy: The hair products are the best in Brazil. I have such dry hair, and every Brazilian girl has that type of hair. Brazilian hair products are the best. You cannot go wrong with any, trust me.
Feelings about glitter: I'm more of a red lipstick girl for party makeup. I like red lipstick — that’s my thing.
Victoria’s Secret shout-out: It’s my 16th Fashion Show! Yes, I cannot believe it. It’s huge. I am so honored that I am still here after so many years and representing the women at my age, 34. I’m very proud to be here at my age.
Essential eye cream: I don’t really use an eye cream, but I use Chanel Beauty Hydra Creme as an all-over face cream. I like it because it's light, but it's super moisturizing at the same time. It doesn't leave you feeling greasy or heavy. You can put makeup on top if you want or before bed. It's nice.
Favorite lip balm: I'm a lip balm hoarder. So I have so many. I have a Kiehl's and Burt's Bees — that’s a good natural one. Those EOS balls are really fun. The Rosebud salve.
Hometown beauty buy: Honestly, we live in New York City, so everything I could ever need is here. There’s not much that St. Louis has that New York doesn’t have.
Feelings about glitter: Glitter? I don’t mind it. Sometimes it’s fun to use it as a highlighter on your cheekbone when you’re going out. Instead of a shimmer, it’s a bit bigger. So I like it. I mean, I’m a girl. Girls don’t not like glitter. What girls don’t like glitter?
Victoria’s Secret shout-out: Everything. It’s kind of the American . . . I guess every girl around the world's dream. And to do it three times in a row is a blessing. I am so blessed and so lucky. I’m so excited to be able to work and hang out with all these amazing people. It’s just so fun.
Essential eye cream: I actually don’t use an eye cream; I use coconut oil. I buy it at Trader Joe’s or Costco.
Favorite lip balm: My favorite is either Burt's Bees. Or I have a really nice Chanel one that I like the scent of. It’s more silky and shiny.
Hometown beauty buy: Well I’m from Colorado so I would just say, snow. Go see the snow? . . . No, we don’t really make anything. It’s very middle America. The giant Target is amazing.
Feelings about glitter: I love glitter. It sparkles. I wouldn’t technically incorporate actual glitter [in my beauty routine], but I think having a glittery personality, being happy, and having a twinkle in your eyes is very important.
Victoria’s Secret shout-out: It means everything to me — it’s my dream. It’s what I’ve worked so hard to do, and I’m very excited to be here. I got announced as an Angel last year, and I’m very excited to do it. To be so young and doing it — it’s very honoring. And I feel very humble about it.
Favorite beauty products: L'Oréal. I really like Nars lipstick. It’s very bright and it stays forever.
Hometown beauty buy: You know the mask that you put on when you go to bed or when you’re sleeping? The cucumber mask? That’s the one I use. [Lais is from Teresina, Brazil.]
Feelings about glitter: Eh, it depends where you go, because I’m not going to wear glitter to go to dinner. But I think it would be nice to use for a party. It would be fun.
Victoria’s Secret shout-out: It means everything. It means that I worked hard to be here. And I’m really excited and happy about it.
