So ladies, while you are watching the Victoria’s Secret fashion show this year and your man sitting next to you decides to let his jaw drop to the floor in front of you here’s a little factoid you can throw out him. Those gorgeous, perfect specimens (who, let’s face it, really are quite stunning) are wearing 20, yes 20, layers of butt makeup.
Selita Ebanks, an angel now for five years, told the New York Daily News, “It’s all about creating the illusion of this amazing body on the runway.”People don’t realize that there are about 20 layers of makeup on my butt alone.”
Apparently the body makeup takes one hour to apply with hair and face makeup taking a further three to five hours. There are an estimated five people assigned to each angel to create that “angelic” look. If only I had those five people on staff every morning with me when trying to get myself out the door looking semi-approachable. ha!
