Just Found Another Dream Job!

"Butt Make-Up Artist" for Victoria's Secret fashion shows

Thanks for opening my eyes, Huffington Post!
This year's Victoria's Secret fashion show brought together balloons, lace, fake fur, thigh-high boots...oh, and a $3 million dollar, diamond-encrusted bra. But how do the models manage to look so perfect wearing next to nothing on the catwalk?

Simple: Butt makeup.

One Angel, Selita Ebanks, told the New York Daily News: "It's all about creating the illusion of this amazing body on the runway. People don't realize that there are about 20 layers of makeup on my butt alone."

Ebanks said the body makeup takes an hour to apply, plus hair and face makeup, which takes three to five hours. An average of five people works on each of the 38 models.

Sounds great to me, regardless of pay rate/benefits, as long as they don't fart.
