Alessandra's look, created by VS Makeup artist Karan Mitchell, was inspired by her stunning beaded Zuhair Murad gown.

Karan started by giving the model a sheer, dewy base by applying VS Makeup Tinted Moisturizer in Golden Medium with a foundation brush, following up with VS PRO Radiant FX Face Illuminator to highlight her cheekbones. To set the base, she lightly dusted VS PRO Flawless FX Transluscent Powder Finishing Powder all over her face. To add some warmth, Karan then applied VS Makeup Silky Powder Blush in Fame to the apples of her cheeks, then blended VS Makeup Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder in Goddess over the entire face for an all over glow.

To make Alessandra's eyes pop, Karan applied the golden shade from the VS Makeup Eyeshadow Duo in Undiscover all over the lids with a damp brush, then highlighted the eyes by gently blending the soft light shade under the brow bone. Next, she added VS Makeup Hypergloss Eye Shimmer in Diamond lights to the inside corners of the eyes and lined the top lash line with VS Makeup Kajal Liner in Black Magic for definition. For a dramatic finish, she curled the lashes and topped them with three coats of VS Makeup Volume Plump Mascara in Blackest Black.

Alessandra's lips were kept soft and simple, shaped with VS Makeup Lip Liner in Sable Brown, then filled in with VS Makeup Color Drama Lipstick in Whisper and VS Makeup Shine Drama Lip Gloss in Elusive.

Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr wore a 1940s-inspired Valentino gown and needed a beauty look to match. VS Makeup artist Lisa Storey created a look that reflected the era, but put a modern, sexy spin on it that suited the supermodel.

To begin, Lisa applied VS Makeup TInted Moisturizer in Golden Medium to Miranda's face for a flawless finish. From there, she dusted VS Makeup Minerals Pressed Face Powder all over before adding VS Makeup Luminous Mineral Blush Duo in At Last to her cheeks for a pretty glow.

Lisa prepped Miranda's eyes with VS Makeup Hyper Gloss Eye Shimmer in Golden Lights. Next she used VS Makeup Eye Shadow Quad in Heiress, applying the base color on the lid and using the crease color to frame and contour the eyes. To define them, Lisa started atthe inside corner and, moving outward, lined the upper lash line with VS Makeup Precision Liner, keeping the line thickest at the outer corner. To give Miranda's eyes even more emphasis, she framed the contours with VS Makeup Shimmer Eye Shadow in Between the Sheets.

Miranda has great brows, so to enhance hteir natural shape Lisa used VS Makeup Brow Pencil, then finished off the eye look with two coats of VS Makeup High Definition Mascara for full, lush lashes.

Miranda's lips received a sheer coat of VS Makeup Color Drama Lipstick in Pulse.
