How to do your makeup like Adriana Lima?

Victoria's Secret beauty Adriana Lima is the quintessential supermodel: easy to spot, but hard to get (unless you're a rock star or pro athlete: these two professions are a supermodel's weakness). Copy Adriana Lima's makeup with these tricks or try it on in our virtual makeup studio.

Perfect, fresh-looking skin is Adriana Lima's signature (well, that and her slammin' body). Liquid foundation should yield a smooth, light-reflecting finish: apply with a foundation brush and blend well. Apply a hint of bronzer wherever the sun would hit your face naturally, or build streak-free color gradually with a self-tanner made for daily use. The goal is to look like yourself, just a bit warmer and dreamier like Lima.

Simulate Adriana's pretty cheeks with a soft peach or apricot blush. Silky creams or gels will bring out your face’s natural glow. Make them last all day by setting with a powder blush in a similar hue.

Luscious lashes are non-negotiable. Curl yours with an eyelash curler, then apply three to five individual, medium-length falsies to the outer corners of each eye, using tweezers for precise application. With a steady hand, rim the top and bottom lashes with black or dark brown liner. Finish with volumizing mascara.

Adriana Lima's lips run the gamut from fruit-juicy to nude, but the color should be sheer, like second-skin. Gloss should be weightless, never goopy. A neutral-colored lip pencil and a swipe of golden gloss impart sex appeal without looking like you have a lot of makeup on. --Stephanie Simons
