The Victoria’s Secret mannequin talks Robust Mudder ambitions and why sleeping in your mascara is her secret magnificence trick
Pink lips go together with every part, says Adriana Lima – even a bikini on the seaside. ‘I’ll go for a popping purple, similar to Maybelline’s Coloration Sensational Vivid Scorching Lacquer in Traditional. Then, if I need to make my lips look greater, I’ll use a liner, too. My mum is obsessive about lipsticks and loves robust colors, like brown or burgundy, so I at all times affiliate lipstick along with her.’
And boxing retains Adriana Lima in nice form. ‘If I’m burdened, I’m going boxing. I’ve been doing it for over ten years – it’s my favorite option to work out and such a very good vitality launch. I don’t like operating however, if I’m travelling, I’ll do it. I just lately accomplished an impediment course in Miami the place you needed to crawl via mud and scramble over partitions. Since then I’ve been occupied with doing a Robust Mudder, too.’
Perfume of alternative? ‘I at all times hold a small bottle of Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence in my purse. The gardenia within the perfume jogs my memory of being in my mum’s backyard, which is why I adore it. If I’m going away with work, I spritz a bit of clothes with fragrance, so my daughters can sleep with it to remind them of me. Perfume is so highly effective like that.’
Earlier than a Victoria’s Secret present, Adriana Lima does some critical physique prep. ‘I’ll slather moisturiser all over the place. Mario Badescu’s Rose Hips Nourishing Oil is basically light-weight, so it sinks in instantly and makes your pores and skin really feel unbelievable. I don’t normally want to make use of pretend tan, as a result of I’ve naturally olive pores and skin – and I dwell in Miami! I’m non secular about making use of SPF, although, so the very first thing I do each morning is canopy myself in Solar Bum.’
The very best make-up trick I’ve realized is to combine a dollop of highlighter into my BB cream or moisturiser. Collectively it creates a stunning, heat all-over glow. One other factor I do is hold my mascara on for just a few days at a time. I’ll sleep in it, then layer extra on prime every morning to create a barely smoky look that additionally provides the phantasm of eyeliner, although you’re not sporting any.
After an extended day or if I’m travelling rather a lot, I can’t wait to make use of Omorovicza’s Deep Cleaning Masks. It’s like a dessert on your face. It feels so wealthy and opulent to placed on and leaves your pores and skin actually glowy. The attention cream is nice should you’re drained, too.
I’m fortunate sufficient to dwell by the seaside, so if I would like to relax out I can simply go and sit there for some time or take a stroll. I don’t get a lot downtime – normally solely within the mornings with my kids earlier than they go to highschool. If I need to actually loosen up, I’ll have a deep-tissue therapeutic massage and burn aromatherapy candles or incense. My favorite is a floral one, like Diptyque’s Gardenia candle.
My go-to pores and skin guru is Herve Herau. He’s a Paris-based facialist whose merchandise are natural and he creates a very customised regime for you. Once I see him, I top off on actually every part.
