The imperfectly perfect bedhead waves, the airbrushed tans, the Fantasy Bras, the bedazzled wings—the ladies of the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show are hardly known for being au naturel. But IRL, or at least on Instagram, the lingerie brand’s famous models love to strip off the layers of makeup and show us they’re just as gorgeous bare-faced (usually pre- or post-sleep, at the beach, at the airport, or mid-workout) as they are totally made-up.
In preparation for the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show—which airs Tuesday, November 28 at 10 P.M. on CBS—we’ve rounded up some of the most recent low-maintenance selfies snapped by all 14 Angels currently on the brand’s famous roster. And while the flawlessness you’re about to see is a little intimidating, we also scored a few secrets to how VS models keep their bare skin looking that way—straight from their on-set and pre-show facialist, Mzia Shiman.
According to Shiman, you’d be hard-pressed to find a VS Angel who doesn’t pay her visits for a 90-minute “triple-glow facial” that use microdermabrasion and fruit acids to slough away dullness and even skin tone, plus an oxygen treatment to brighten. Then usually days before the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Shiman’s on location to give all of them mini oxygen-infusion facial treatments that combine oxygen and a vitamin serum to plump, brighten, and counter signs of tiredness after long rehearsal days.
Sure, that’s all well and good when you’re an Angel, but there is at least one skin care trick they use that we can easily steal: sheet masks. Shiman’s used many over the years; including Decleor’s Aurabsolu Intense Glow Hydrogel Mask and the less accessible $300 Mimi Luzon Pure 24k Gold Mask.
K, now that you’re armed with that info, scroll on through to see just what access to the world’s top skin care treatments—and possession of the world’s luckiest genes—can do:
