Victoria's Secret Model Posts 'Shocking' Makeup-Free Pic That Really Shows Her Makeup-Free (PHOTO)

Love It! 10

2013 will go down in the books as the year of the makeup-free selfie. Celebs are dying to be viewed as normal, everyday folk who aren't afraid to show off their "flaws" and sinfully shiny faces. But let's face it, most of the images we've seen of these women are either shot with a flattering filter that creates the effect of makeup or aren't truly makeup-free photos at all -- mascara and nude lip gloss are a natural girl's best friend, you know. 

But one Victoria's Secret model recently took to Instagram to post a photo of herself totally barefaced. I swear. No makeup at all. Really

Adriana Lima doesn't exactly have anything to hide. The Brazilian mother of two is beautiful enough to have retained her contract with Victoria's Secret since 2000. Pretty impressive, since 13 years is like 300 in model years. What's her secret to looking amazing without makeup? She honestly seems to live a healthy lifestyle, and it shows in her photo, which was taken minutes (or maybe even seconds) after completing her boxing workout at the gym. Let's have a look:

She looks gorgeous AND totally natural! Yay! Bless this woman -- she hasn't even bothered to wipe the sweat off her face or wait until the redness in her skin subsides. And it makes absolutely no difference because she's glowing. I don't know about you, but I see quite a few women at my gym who look like they've applied cosmetics to work out on the treadmill. Not only can makeup clog your skin when you sweat, but it's totally unnecessary -- exercise makes you look beautiful!

So, aside from having stunning skin, it looks like one of Adriana's other secrets to looking great sans makeup is to keep your brows tamed so that they frame your face. Well, that about sums it up, doesn't it? Easy as pie!

Kudos to the model for keeping her selfie real and inspiring us to hit the gym with nothing but flawless brows and a swipe of chapstick.

How often do you leave the house without makeup?

She looks really ordinary, not beautiful at all. Just goes to show how women deceive men by using make up and plastic surgery. These days I know friends who don't recognise their kids as being related to the mother as they have changed their appearance so much, they bear no resemblence to the person they were born as. Very sad.

She's ugly. Sorry. I'm 50 times more beautiful naturally and should be a vs model but I'm just 5 5. I don't know where they pick these models from these days but many I these women. Are hardly veautoful I thought modeling was abt beauty so I'm not sure why they take arrange women and make them appear beautiful and take super hot women and play down or looks

Jenn j, you may be beautiful on the outside, but your personality makes you ugly.  Jealousy isn't becoming on anyone.

Agree with smtxcowgirl! I think she looks great a natural! I can't pull it off! I don't do make up unless I'm going to work or going out. Too lazy and don't really care :)

Jenn J. You may be the most beautiful woman but you sound ugly. Very bitter indeed.
