How Lily Aldridge Got a Flawless, Sunless Tan — While Wearing All White

That glow, tho.

Lily Aldridge stepped onto the red carpet at the CFDA Awards looking absolutely radiant, and it wasn’t just perfect lighting she had to thank for that. The Victoria’s Secret model’s glowing skin was achieved with a handful of Vita Liberata products that were strategically applied by celebrity makeup artist, Quinn Murphy.

“I wanted her to glow and look healthy, sexy and radiant,” said Murphy in a press release. “I applied Vita Liberata's Invisi Foaming Tan Water in Medium/Dark over her entire body several hours before the red carpet. This is my go to product for red carpets because it dries quickly, applies evenly and gives the most realistic skin like tan."

For the most even results, Murphy said she applied the foam with Vita Liberata Tanning Mitt: "I put a few pumps into the glove and applied using circular motions. We allowed the product to develop while we moved onto makeup and hair.”

Murphy noted that the foaming tan is especially perfect for events since it won’t transfer onto clothing like some can. This was particularly important since Lily was dressed in white! She also applied Vita Liberata's Beauty Blur Skin Tone Optimizer in Latte Light to Aldridge’s face using a dampened Beauty Blender, noting that this technique really evens out skin in a subtle, delicate way.

“Once the makeup was finished, I applied Vita Liberata's Body Blur Sunless Glow in Latte all over her body for a stunning red carpet glow,” said Murphy. “It evens out the skin tone and has a gorgeous golden sheen that picks up the light beautifully under the camera flash. It also contains a sunless tanning ingredient that works while wearing the makeup, so she has a lasting glow."

Mission most definitely accomplished!
