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.”

Dermablend’s shocking new commercial!

Model “Zombie Boy” (real name Rick Genest) allowed Dermablend to cover his entire body with their tattoo concealor, and, well, the results are shocking!

Zombie Boy is a male model, and music video star (he starred in Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” video).

It’s a great commercial, if you ask me. When the video started, I had no idea he had all those tattoos under there!

PS: Isn’t it kind of sad he covered his body in all that ink? He’s actually really cute when it’s all covered up!

WATCH: Lady Gaga’s new Viva Glam for MAC commercial!

Lady Gaga continues to be the face of MAC’s Viva Glam, which she’s done successfully for the past year.

Lady Gaga has been the face of MAC‘s Viva Glam campaign for the past year–her lipstick is a pale nude color–and she’s been working on a fashion project with Nicola Formichetti for the cosmetics brand. Back in March, Gaga put out a call for fans to submit head shots of themselves which would be incorporated into a “masterpiece” of a dress.

Watch Gaga float and stare dreamily, and then release a tiny version of herself which flies away. All while wearing the tallest shoes I think she’s worn to date. The most important part, though, is that this is all to support MACs campaing to fight AIDS through the purchase of their Viva Glam lipsticks. Go here for more information and to see the series of videos that led up to this finale.
