No matter what country you are in, a Victoria Secret Angel is synonymous with undeniable beauty. These women are literally hand-picked to be beautiful. So of course when I heard I had the chance to meet a few of these lovely’s, I knew exactly what I wanted to ask them. How on earth do you ladies stay so gorgeous?!
Well okay, upon first sight I knew it….genes absolutely play a large role, but certainly with all the traveling for photo shoots and all the makeup applied these ladies must know a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t!
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to speak with Lily Aldridge, a stunning brunette (wink) to find out a few of her beauty tips. You may be surprised to find out that no, these Angels don’t just pop out of bed perfect, they too have to work at it (even if it’s just a little).
This lovely Angel admitted to me that she usually works out with a personal trainer, but 2 weeks before a show she amps it up to every day and watches what she eats. Although Lily assured me she does not deny herself, yes ofcourse she eats more salads but she also enjoys a good dish of whole wheat pasta (my kinda girl) and no soda (keep this in mind ladies…soda is a real doosey when you are trying to maintain a goal weight).
Being a regular traveler I was curious to find out what is her number one beauty item she can’t live without when she is on the road. She was nice and gave me three; 1. Shu Uemura balancing cleansing oil, 2. Eye mask, 3. Ear plugs. Well I had two of those down; I’m definitely running out today to pick up the balancing oil. Lily also recommended a highlighter, like the Victoria Secret shimmer dust, “It gives you a healthy glow” – definitely needed after a long flight.
Thank you Lily!
