Victoria's Secret Beauty Alessandra Ambrosio Dares to Wear No Makeup (VIDEO)

alessandra ambrosioWow. It must be so tough to be Alessandra Ambriosio and go through life looking absolutely gorgeous all of the time. Gah! She sure has a rough life! Yes -- of course I'm kidding! But seriously, it's obvious this gal has job security as a model for a reason.

Anyone can pull off a camera ready look when they have a hair and makeup team behind them, but somehow Alessandra manages to look just as perfect when she's fresh-faced and virtually makeup free as she does while walking the runway. And even in this photo of her taken at an event, her makeup isn't overdone. It gives her just the right level of a formal, evening appropriate look without looking heavy or cakey.


Ok -- back to how she looks when she's barely wearing one ounce of makeup at all. You can view a photo of Alessandra minus the makeup here, and as you will see, she's still every bit as beautiful. And odds are good that she probably looked fairly close to perfect right after she rolled out of bed that morning. Why can't it be that way for all of us?

But what I love most about that photo of her out and about in public is that while she does look natural and fresh, she still used two beauty tools that I've always said are essential for moms to have, which made her look put together and ready to take on the day.

First of all, she's definitely wearing something on her lips. Whether it's lip gloss or a natural hued shade of lipstick, that little pop of color on her face goes a long way. And how about the big sunglasses that she has on her head? They look great as a headband -- but she can also throw them on to glam up her look a bit after lunch. No mom should ever be without a pair of big sunglasses. In my opinion, they're the best beauty invention ever.

And judging from the video clip below -- I think Alessandra would probably agree with me. It looks like she never leaves home without her sunglasses (or lip gloss) either. (I knew I was onto something)!

Do you think Alessandra looks better with or without makeup?
