What do you get when you take a stunning model and remove all her makeup? Well, in Adriana Lima’s case, something just as stunning.
While at home in Brazil, the Victoria’s Secret model posted a selfie on Instagram of her seemingly makeup-free face while lying in a bikini. And even though she’s one of the most beautiful models out there, it’s rare we get to see models of her caliber without makeup, so there was no telling what she’d reveal by posting a makeup-free photo.
Turns out, Lima without makeup might be more gorgeous than Lima with makeup.
Lima wore a pink halter bikini with orange polka dots while enjoying the sun in Salvador de Bahia. She rocked a temporary silver tattoo on her arm — a sign of a good time the night before.
With so many celebs joining the makeup-free movement, we’ve really enjoyed seeing these famous faces in all their natural glory. In fact, we’ve come to like that look more — it’s clean and much more human. And Lima is no exception. Her face was fresh, and her skin was naturally flawless, with no signs of eyeliner, blush, or lipstick. Instead, the lack of makeup revealed some super-cute freckles. Her famous lips were just as pouty without color, and her smoldering eyes are proof that makeup is not needed to create a mysterious smoky eye.
Excuse us while we go attempt to achieve her makeup-free look with lots of makeup.
