StyleCaster’s Exclusive look at Victoria’s Secret Makeup Collection‏

For the release of the latest Victoria’s Secret makeup collection, we went behind the scenes with the brand as they shot their “Fiercely Sexy” ad campaigns. The products, focusing on metallics and one of Victoria’s Secret best sellers, Fierce, range from shimmering shadow duos to illuminating bronzers.

Makeup artist Polly Osmond walked us through the dark, smokey eye look that she was applying to Adriana Lima. Osmond started with the duo liner in Shimmer Fierce, applying black pencil on the eye first and then adding the shimmer shadow duo in Fierce over the top to “intensify the look” and to help the shadow adhere to the eye with the pencil underneath. Using the silver end of the liner duo, Osmond blended the line outwards. She finished the look with Halo, a “natural rosy pink with lots of shimmer in it” for Adriana’s lips to accent her pout.

For the hair, stylist Oribe stuck with the traditional sexy, bouncy, trademark Victoria’s Secret waves. He recommends using either a curling iron or hot rollers (on set he used hot rollers). To maintain volume in your hair all day, Oribe suggests starting at your root and working a volumizer or texturizer through your hair. We also asked him his take on short hair, since many models and celebs have been going short lately. Oribe quickly replied, “They’re all growing it back; at the end of the day boys like long hair.”

Enjoy the below behind the scenes peek of the Fiercely Sexy shoot featuring Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel (as well as makeup artist Polly Osmond and hairstylist Oribe) and flip through the images above for more on-set action!

Kenneth Cole Reaction Launches Digital Campaign for New “Connected” Fragrance‏

Love Kenneth Cole fragrances to begin with and this new campaign is great such a cute idea!

 

Ladies, if you’ve ever been harassed by a man-child trying to hook up with you, Kenneth Cole feels your pain. With this tragic and widespread problem in mind, Kenneth Cole Reaction created their latest digital campaign, Connecting 101, to celebrate the launch of their newest men’s fragrance: Connected. Featuring multiple scenarios that we can all relate to–including men who only talk about themselves and a date who tries to jump you immediately after your first kiss–these digital shorts instruct men on how to treat a lady right. You can view all the videos here.

 

 

To complement the videos and help keep men on the right track, Kenneth Cole created an interactive micro site, http://reactionconnected.com, to provide “next step” advice about how to make a more intimate connection.  Additionally, a mobile version of the site will deliver recommended tips and one-liners based on the exact situation in which the newly Connected Man finds himself.
