Adriana Lima– Makeup By Carolina Gonzales
What’s the coolest look you ever did for VS?
The coolest, well, actually most fun, look were looks for the Sexy Little costumes on Candice. Its was a lot of fun to work on. I transformed Candice into different characters. We did Vegas Showgirl, Geisha, stewardess a la VS Style.
What’s an Angel-level makeup look that normal girls can rock for every day?
A winged liner with a rosy cheek and lip.
How do you get that dewey, kissed by an angel natural look we always see in the VS shows?
A great tinted moisturizer, cream contour, some translucent powder on the T zone, cream blush, mascara (3-4 coats), light brow definition, lip definition by contouring the mouth topped off with a slight lipstain. Last but not least, illuminizer on cheekbone and inner eye corners.
What do you put under the angel eyes that make them sparkle like that?
Like I said, it’s just an illuminizing eyeshadow on the inner eye corners.
In your experience, which products are ride or die?
A great moisturizer is key! Also a cream concealor, mascara, nude lipliner and cream contour.
How do you get a night time beauty look without going overboard on the eyeliner and lipstick?
Choose a feature, either eye or lip. Smokey eyes and nude lip or maybe a liquid liner and red or nude glossy lip.
How can girls try out beauty trends while still staying subtle with their makeup?
The magic word is blend.
