It's that time of year again...no, not when the jolly man dressed in red stops by, but when us mere mortals turn our focus to the surreal creatures that are the Victoria’s Secret Angels at their annual catwalk extravaganza, which will air in Australia on Fox 8 on December 9.

We might not all look like Adriana Lima sporting a diamond encrusted fantasy bra, but we can achieve some of the Victoria’s Secret beauty trends from flawless, glowing skin to the infamous bouncy barrel curls with a few industry tips and tricks!

Moisturised legs for days, shimmering spray tans and not an inch of body hair or cellulite to be seen, the Victoria Secret Angels certainly set a high standard of flawless skin. Togninis’ in-house beauty guru, Morgan, has a few suggestions for both at home and in salon treatments to set you up for summer skin success.

Dewy, flawless, runway-ready skin

- Get your glow on: The quickest way to look ‘Gisele Bündchen radiant’ is to remove dull, de-vitalised skin cells. If you have an all-important summer event coming up, take 1 pea size amount of Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub, mix with warm water and gently massage over the face (or area of focus). For your facial skin, concentrate on the forehead, nose and chin, as these tend to be the areas of skin more prone to congestion. For those of you with dry skin mix the scrub with 1 pump of Skinstitut Multi Active oil. Massage over the face and rinse off with tepid water. This is a fast track, DIY way to instantly get that Victoria’s Secret luminous glow.

- Prep your blank canvas: We suggest a pigment correcting treatment, which usually takes about 45 minutes. Designed to cleanse, exfoliate and re-hydrate and reduce hyper-pigmentation, this treatment provides relief for stressed skin, featuring an enzyme mask with Papain enzymes that micro-exfoliate to promote a softer, smoother skin. This treatment also includes L-Ascorbic vitamin C – for the addition of brilliance and luminosity and reduction of hyper-pigmentation. With a beautiful even base, your skin will act as perfect blank canvas to glide your makeup over and sparkle like those Angles on the catwalk.

Nailing it

If there is one thing that the Angels have going on, it’s their perfect grooming from head to toe (yes, that includes even their perfectly primed pedicures).

Keep fingers and toenails short and tidy. It makes fun colours look clean and classy. Apply topcoat every second day to prevent chipping and keep your colour glossy and bright.
For a burst of bright try IBD ‘Starburst’ or keep it nude with OPI ‘Don’t Burst My Bubble’.

As soon as your polish chips, remove it!

- The Kerastase Discipline treatment is designed to tame even the most resisting locks. Eliminating frizz and instantly reconstructing hair, this has been touted as the most powerful care treatment ever created by Kerastase.”

- The process involves a highly concentrated professional heat activated treatment to coat the hair fibres, followed by a restorative pre-keratin care treatment for instant smoothness. There is no chemical transformation of the hair fibres. This new protocol treatment is now available in our salons and takes around 1 hour and 30 minutes to apply. After application, your hair will stay silky smooth for up to 10 washes.”
