The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was filmed late last week, and we went backstage during the madness! Karlie Kloss, Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes, and the other Angels were all on standby, as well as supermodels Cara Delevingne and Joan Smalls, to chat about how they prep to wear next to nothing, and we got the details on what it takes to get gorgeous Victoria's Secret hair and skin (hint: lots of hair extensions and an unusual use for lipstick!). Join us backstage to see the models transform into Angels.
Lights, camera, makeup! The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is taking over NYC today, and the Angels have been busy prepping for the biggest moment in lingerie all day. Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, and more slipped into their pink robes and primped behind the curtains — but there was plenty of time for fun, too! In the shuffle of last-minute blowouts and fittings, the ladies posed for photos, shared a few laughs for the cameras, and even snapped their own sexy moments for social media. Take a look at all the action before the Angels rocked the catwalk with Fall Out Boy and Taylor Swift, and make sure to watch the whole show when it airs on TV on Dec. 10.
Before the magic hits the sparkling runway, the Victoria's Secret Angels slip into their silk robes and get a full-body makeover. From ghd tools for iconic waves to the brand's own makeup and body bronzer, Candice Swanepoel, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes, and all the other Angels spend hours primping backstage. Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of their beauty routines from snaps shared on Instagram!
We might not be able to watch the 2013 Victoria's Secret fashion show live on TV in Australia, but we're still bringing you all the best moments, kicking off with the candids! And if you think you're excited for this year's hotly anticipated parade, imagine how the stars of the show feel.
As the runway extravaganza draws nearer and nearer, the world's most genetically-blessed models are sharing behind-the-scenes snaps of their rehearsal and preparation leading up to the big show. Lindsay Ellingson is sneaking in some last minute yoga, Lily Aldridge is trying on those wings, model-of-the-moment Candice Swanepoel is getting familiar with her $10 million fantasy bra and all the girls are getting made-up for the press day. All that and more voyeuristic Victoria's Secret candids right here.
"I want to revolutionise the way we shop and use makeup, ensuring fail safe results every time: between the navigation, tools, formulas and application guidelines, I have literally decoded and poured my artistry into a range of make-up that is: Easy to choose, easy to use and irresistible." Stay glued to Charlotte's website this week to see her recreate the looks and if you're England-bound, be sure to stop into Selfridges and pick up some of her long-awaited products.

Oh yes, there's more Australian fashion week news for you! While backstage covering the hair and makeup looks for shows including Ellery, Suboo and We Are Handsome, we also bailed up a hair and makeup artist or two and asked: What's your best beauty tip? We've narrowed it down to our five favourites, you know what to do.
Last week at POPSUGAR Beauty, we watched hundreds of models get primped and primed for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia runways. We spoke to countless hair and makeup artists and watched everything from intricate braiding to lip gloss being applied to eyelids! But a week on, it's time to dissect the beauty trends. Skin was a major player in the backstage beauty stakes, with many designers opting for a more natural makeup look, instead playing up bone structure and shape with contouring. Dewy is out and matte skin is in, but makeup artists still used highlighters to get that "pop" on the runway. There's also some interesting part lines, sexy hair and ethereal eyes. Let's go!
Carolina Herrera wanted her models to look gorgeous, and that they did. For the elegant look, Orlando Pita for Moroccan Oil gave a new twist (if you will) to the victory roll, while Diane Kendal for Mac Cosmetics added a gorgeous shade, Hot Tahiti, on the lips. Nails were adorned with Essie's Ladylike to streamline the elegant factor.
You've seen all the hair and makeup looks from Fashion Week but now it's time to check out the nails. And let us tell you, you won't be disappointed. Last year may have been about the nude nail but this year we saw just about anything but neutrals. There were hand-marbled nails, fun takes on the classic French manicure, reverse moons, gold-dipped tips, statement nails, pearlescent finishes and multi-coloured manicures. See 25 plus nail looks from the week now.
