Who’s that brunette stunner that is totally giving us major hair envy? Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima, who takes the cover of Vogue Mexico’s July 2015 edition captured by fashion photographer Russell James. Sporting a Balmain fringe dress and windblown hair, the Victoria’s Secret angel looks heavenly, that’s an obvious fact.
The 34-year-old beauty has a unique glow (might be from her mommy status) and this radiance is not easy to beat. And those cheekbones and jaw line are so sharp, one might get a serious cut. Not having been blessed with a sculpted face from Mother Nature can be unfortunate, but this is why we love makeup.
Our recommendation this time is the Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour, Curvy Contour ($21, at NeimanMarcus.com), which will fit perfectly under those cheekbones, blend like a dream and leave your face slimmer. Who doesn’t want that?
Next, it’s time to highlight, of course. Powder or liquid, it’s all a matter of preference and skin type, as liquid highlighters might be more prone to sliding off an oily complexion than a powdery one. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed, Moonstone ($38, at Ulta.com) is our safe choice; this will reflect the light like no other and give you a natural glow. Sweep on top of your cheekbones, browbones, the bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow and for fuller-looking lips, dab a bit on the center of your lower lip, over the lipstick.
Adriana’s eyes are incredibly bright and that is thanks to a little guy called white liner. Using Blinc Eyeliner Pencil, White ($20, at Dermstore.com), apply to your waterline and be surprised at how much a simple step like this will transform your entire look and make your eyes pop and appear wider.
The final step on our way to achieving this bright look is adding a subtle hint of color to the lips. Lorac Alter Ego Cream Lipstick, Southern Belle ($16, at Beauty.com) will give your lippies the pink tone they need and make them silkier, without overpowering the look.
Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle; let that inner glow out to play! Are you going to rock this radiant look this summer?
