Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima is known for her piercing blue eyes, bee-stung lips, and dark hair. Even though she could go barefaced for the rest of eternity and we wouldn't bat an eye, we love when she wears makeup since her trademark sultry eye and bold lip look gives us major beauty inspiration of our own. Well, now we know the exact products she uses, thanks to a new video from Vogue where Lima films herself getting ready for a night out.
She dishes on all the makeup products she swears by and gives us an up-close and personal look at how she applies them. Since she's been the face of Maybelline for years now; it's no surprise that she relies on the brand for all of her makeup needs. From a $6 lipstick to an $8 eye shadow palette, all of her picks are budget-friendly (and we're the better for it). Keep scrolling to watch the video!
"I love makeup," she tells the camera. We have no doubt that this is true, considering she's the host and executive producer of a new TV competition series called American Beauty Star, which premiered in 2017 on the Lifetime network.
On to her beauty routine—which only took about two minutes. First, she reaches for Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB Cream 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector ($9) and mixes it with the brand's Face Studio Master Blur + Illuminate Primer ($10). From there, she has a nice base to get creative on. To accentuate her intense gaze, she uses The Nudes Eye Shadow Palette ($8), which is one of our all-time favorite drugstore eyeshadow palettes. Its combination of subtle nude shades and dark blacks and browns makes it the perfect palette to transition your look from day to night. Rather than doing a complicated eye look, she lines her eyes with a brown color and smokes it out slightly. She adds a little highlighter to her brow bone and that's it!
After swiping on some light bronzer to give some glow, she also adds a pink toned blush. Accidentally apply too much? She suggests blending it away with your hands since they're free of product.
As for her lips, she swipes on a number of different shades before settling on what appears to be Maybelline's Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick ($4) in the shade Mesmerizing Magenta. It's nice to know that even Adriana Lima has trouble picking a lip color...sometimes choosing between a subtle nude and a dark berry lip is harder than perfecting our cat eyeliner.
