Butt Makeup – Victoria Secret

I read this article the other day on Huffington post about 20 layers of butt makeup being put on the models at the Victoria Secret fashion show last week.  It is funny because my friend, Martha Friedlander, is the makeup artist who does it for the VS Fashion Show.  I think she would describe it as a little bit of body sculpting and contouring.  But just great that her work made such an odd story.

What isn’t mentioned in the article, is if you ask Martha about the VS girls, she will tell you straight out that the girls are absolutely stunning.  Not that she doesn’t think her body makeup work is useful, but even under closeup scrutiny of the most intimate parts of VS girls….she said the girls are just gorgeous in person.

Here is a link to the article:


Here is a photo I posted a couple weeks ago that Martha was the regular makeup artist on.  No butt makeup was used in the below photo!!!!
