The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is full of glitz and glam, but that doesn't mean there aren't a few downsides to strutting that runway. Karolina Kurkova talked being a Victoria's Secret angel to PeopleStyle, and she revealed the not-so-fun part about walking in the highly buzzed about runway show, and it's super random.
If I had to take a guess at the least fun part of walking in the VS Fashion Show, I would definitely say the months of intense exercise and restricted diets (bye, pizza!) to prep for wearing that lingerie. But I would be wrong, because former angel Karolina Kurkova opened up about one of the least fun parts of the show, and her answer was definitely unexpected. “It takes about a whole week to rinse off and get rid of all the sparkle and glow in all of these different places after the show’s over,” Kurkova said. A week!? And I thought waking up with a little of last night's mascara leftover was bad.
If you think she's exaggerating, think again, because these ladies are covered in a whole lot of glitter. “Even in between every finger is glowing and sparkly, because those cameras are everywhere and you want your skin to look great,” the model said. Yeah, I guess a week seems about right then.
If you don't want to spend a week scrub-a-dub-dubbing your skin, here are a few tips for how to effectively remove glitter makeup.
Use A Natural Oil
Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, $11.89, jet.com
See — there really is nothing coconut oil can't do. Dip your fingers in the oil and rub over the glitter in small motions to remove it.
Scotch® Removable Poster Tape, $4.84, demco.com
Sticky tape can help pick up glitter particles.
Opt For Makeup Remover

Depending on how intense the glitter adhesive is, regular old makeup remover might do the trick.
Warm Your Washcloth
To get rid of any residual glitter once the bulk of it is gone, use a foaming face wash and a warm wash cloth.
