See all the beauty looks from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! »

The sexiest show on earth, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, will be televised tonight and although many will be tuning in to see the elaborate costumes, fancy lingerie and performances from Rihanna and Justin Bieber, we can’t forget about the beauty. After all, while a million-dollar bra is hard to come by, anyone can try their hand at the hair and makeup done on the Victoria’s Secret Angels. Even better, we have the complete low-down on how to achieve both.

Makeup artist Tom Pecheux gave Victoria’s Secret models such as Miranda Kerr and Doutzen Kroes a look that featured sultry brown eyes, glossy, barely-tinted lips and earthy cheeks. And given just how much skin is on display, the Angels’ bodies were given a sun kissed glow with help from the brand’s Beach Sexy line of bronzers and self-tanners.

Hair guru Orlando Pita is no stranger to celebrity tresses and brought the va-va-voom to Angels’ hair for the runway show. Pita created effortlessly tousled waves to complement the models’ beach-ready bodies with Victoria’s Secret So Sexy hair products. Pita even managed to give model Karlie Kloss bouncy natural-looking extensions despite having recently cut her hair into a short bob.

And if you look really closely while watching the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show tonight, you will see that the Angels’ nails are painted in a soft pink shade. This new line of VS Nail Lacquers will be launching in January 2013 and include shades such as “Bitten” and “Peep Show,” which is a glittery metallic pink.
