Adriana Lima Without Makeup

Every time a famously beautiful person goes outside without makeup, we’re reminded that… they’re people, too, we guess? Celebrities are just like us? Is that the point of these pictures, to find the mythic more relatable? Or is to shame them? We’re not sure.

Anyway, Victoria’s Secret angel Adriana Lima is today’s version of this time honored story. The model stepped out of her hotel in NYC wearing a puffy North Face jacket, sweatpants and a bare face, so they say. Though it looks to us like she’s got a bit of light shadow in the inner corners* it’s not a terribly glamorous look for her and she looks like a supermodel all the same.

Sorry to disappoint you if you were expecting Adriana Lima looking anything less than great. Here are some headlines we find vastly more compelling and would have preferred to write:

  • Adriana Lima Steps Out in New York City For First Time Since Announcing Engagement to French Clown
  • Adriana Lima Steps Out in New York City Covered In Earthworms
  • Adriana Lima Steps Out in New York City For First Time Since Revealing Adult Baby Fetish
  • Adriana Lima Steps Out in New York City, Punches Children
  • Adriana Lima Steps Out in New York City With Best Friend, A Preserved Fetus In A Jar
  • Adriana Lima Steps Out in New York City, Causes Hurricane In Southeast Asia

  • Adriana Lima, Now With Chainsaws For Hands, Offers Fashion Forward Haircuts To Low Income New Yorkers
  • Adriana Lima Steps Out in New York City After Eating An Entire Galaxy To Punish A Single Planet
  • Adriana Lima Bat Boy

Any of those would have been way better. Sorry.

*UPDATE: Went home and saw this on my desktop–sure enough, it’s pretty obvious she’s wearing a full eye. That white shadow in the inner corners extends to some black liner and, I’m guessing, mascara. It stands to reason she’s wearing a lot more than that, though.

      Any time I see anything North Face, I cant help but to think of its parody: The South Butt. Immature yet pure genius!

      How is that “bare-faced”? I’m sorry, no one’s inner eye-lids shimmer like that on their own. She’d obviously wearing make-up.

      She clearly has makeup on. My guess: a BB cream or tinted moisturizer, lip balm, inner corner highlight on her eyes, tight-line eyeliner, mascara, and brow powder.

      That is full face makeup with quite a detailed eye. If she had on a bright lip it’d be more obvious but because she went with a neutral lip (or possibly just lip balm) they say she has no makeup on?! What a joke.
      Fuck you Daily Mail, you’re full of shit. Stop perpetuating the myth that some ‘special’ women roll out of bed looking like angels and if the rest of us don’t then we better cover up our shame and inadequacy with tonnes of expensive makeup before we dare leave the house. Again, fuck you.
