Beauty look of the week: Adriana Lima

All Victoria’s Secret models have that certain something. And that certain something is usually every other woman wailing, “why can’t I be her?” when they see photographs of these beauties.

Adriana Lima is amongst this elite group of women who are, arguably, some of the best looking on the planet. Now, we may not have her exact face or figure nor are we high-flying models, but we can copy her make-up as a consolation prize.

Last week a few of the Victoria’s Secret Angels celebrated the release of the 2011 Victoria Secret’s SWIM collection in LA, and Adriana was among them sporting a natural but ultra sexy make-up look.

We’ve broken it down and picked the products you need to look just as gorgeous as the model…

Adriana’s skin is flawless, but it’s still very natural. This season, swap your foundation for a tinted moisturiser to even out skin tone with a lighter coverage – we love Benefit’s You Rebel tinted moisturiser for minimal effort.

Adriana has a light dusting of blusher to perk up her skin. To get the same look, dust Nars’ blusher in ‘Orgasm’ onto the apples of your cheeks and blend up towards your temples. This shade has a cult following for its soft, sexy flush that suits all skin tones – try it, you’ll be amazed.

Adriana has opted for a subtle smoky eye for day-appropriate impact. Blend a small amount of dark eyeshadow, like Pop’s eye shade in ‘Olive Glimmer’, over your eyelids and underneath your lower lash line for a similar look. Add several coats of mascara to define your lashes, too.

Finally, match your lips to your cheeks with this nude pink Bobbi Brown lipstick – we love the honeysuckle shade.
