Victoria’s Secret angel, and new face of Impulse Perfume Erin Heatherton, wows us with her look on the red carpet for the perfume’s launch this week! After much demand, here is how her look was created:

Photographer: Caroline McCredie



Step 1; “Erin has naturally curly hair, so I added a few drops of Redken Diamond Oil to towel-dried hair before blow-drying with a large Boar Bristle Brush” says her hair stylist for the day Richard Kavanagh. The Diamond Oil helps smooth away unwanted frizz and the Boar Bristle Brush doesn’t over stretch the hair allowing you to put a more controlled wave its place with ease. Note; “If your hair is straight” says Kavanagh, “skip the first step and start curling your hair with the (medium sized) curling wand, spraying each section lightly with Redken Wool Shake”.

Step 2; Once her hair was dry and looking smooth and healthy, I started to tong. I worked in random sections with a medium sized curling wand, winding the hair around the wand  from roots to ends. Note; Wrap the hair in a clockwise direction on the left hand side of the head (part side) and an anti clockwise direction on the right hand side.  Spraying each section with a light mist of Redken Wool Shake before curling it. The Wool Shake gives hold and a lived-in texture. HOT Tip; Use a Ceramic and tourmaline coated hot tool like H2D as it emits more ‘negative irons’ which in none-hair-dresser language means: it smooths the cuticle and protects hair from heat damage!

To Finish your Sporty Disheveled Waves – brush out thoroughly – after your hair has completely cooled. Heat a few drops of Redken’s Diamond Oil between the palms of your hands and rake through the mid-lengths and ends, to removes excess frizz while breaking the hair up and giving it that delicious sheeny texture you see in Erin’s Hair.



Step 1;  To complement Erin’s golden skin, I mixed a pea size amount of Laura Mercier’s Radiant Primer in Bronze (a liquid golden/bronze liminizer) through her foundation before applying. The golden reflects of the luminizer enhances skin tone and gives you a skin kissed youthful glow.

Step 2; To get that WOW factor to Erin’s eyes I double-coated black mascara to the top and bottom of Erin’s lashes. Before applying Benefit’s BAD Gal Mascara I double curled lashes to really open up her eyes. To open up her eyes even more,  I applied a gold pearlecent shadow called Cyber Gold from Estee Lauder to the inner corners of the eyes. Note; Perfect for people that suffer from dark circles or for those of us that have been lacking in the sleep department of late!

Step 3; A statement lip that looks and wears like a stain. Keeping with the sunset colour palette, I used one of my favourite creamy-lip-stains to finish off Erin’s look. Ellis Faas Creamy Lips in L106 (Hazelnut/Orange) enables you to paint lips with a bold creamy colour that ultimately stains the lips – giving a modern, wearable finish.

To Finish, I contoured Erin’s face with Becca Cosmetics Flowerchild Mineral Blush. Concentrate a little extra colour high on the apples of the cheeks to give that Grecian-Goddess sun-kissed look.
