Adriana Lima is officially the longest running Victoria’s Secret Angel, and from her beautiful body to her angelic flawless features, it is not hard to see why. The 35-year-old Brazilian model is best known for her work with Victoria’s Secret. Her first fashion show for the lingerie company was in 1999, and she quickly moved on to being an Angel in 2000. Ever since, Lima has been a regular Angel and has walked in every show; she’s even opened the show for five of the years she’s walked so far.
Adriana Lima’s Instagram is currently making waves, as the model recently posted a makeup-free selfie on the beach. The photo, showing Adriana Lima in a bikini with no makeup, shows her fans just how naturally beautiful the model is. Lima wore a pink halter bikini with small orange polka dots while enjoying the sun in Salvador de Bahia. She also sported a silver temporary tattoo on her arm. With makeup, anyone can be stunning, but going without and showing the world takes guts. It is rare to see models of such caliber without any makeup, and it’s refreshing to see that she is just as stunning without. Showing herself without makeup also aids in her message to young girls about being themselves, and sends positive body messages.
With so many celebrities jumping on the makeup-free movement, it’s nice to see that they are really just like us underneath all the makeup. Lima’s face without makeup is fresh, and her skin is naturally flawless. We even got to see some cute little freckles that are usually covered with makeup. Her signature pouty lips were just as luscious without color, and her eyes mysterious without the smoky eye makeup look. The photo of Adriana Lima without makeup proves that she is just as beautiful when she goes all-natural.
Lima tries to send body positive messages to girls who are fans of the VSFS. “The Victoria’s Secret fashion show is all about embracing women from all over the world,” Lima said while attending the Sword & Sound event, presented by Corkcicle. “The girls are from all over the world and different ages, and they all show their different personalities. You have to be yourself. Each one of us has our own thing going on that we bring to the runway, and we show it. Just embrace yourself, because the minute you try to be something you’re not, you lose your identity.”
Adriana Lima is currently enjoying some time off, but that hasn’t stopped the Victoria’s Secret model from posting pics all through the Christmas holidays. Adriana Lima’s hot pictures on her Instagram have kept her fans interested in the sun-kissed model this holiday season; she’s been posting her modeling photos, and some more personal pics of herself in tiny bikinis and lingerie.
Feeling festive, the model shared a selfie, where she is seen in front of her Christmas tree with the caption, “Getting into my UNICORN FORM for Christmas.”
We are hoping for some more makeup-free selfies this New Year that will give us more reason to believe that Adriana Lima is one of the most beautiful angels with or without makeup!
