What type of fragrances do you tend to wear?
When selecting a fragrance, I look not only for something with a smell I enjoy, but also for something that makes me feel a certain type of emotion, like sexy and playful or sweet and angelic.
What’s your signature scent?
Marc Jacobs ‘Decadence’!
How do you apply your fragrance?
I shower myself when I apply fragrance. I like to put it in my hair, on my collarbone, on my legs – everywhere! My favorite place to apply it would be my belly button.
What’s a typical day in the life of Adriana Lima like?
When I’m not working, I workout a lot and spend as much time with my kids as possible.
What’s one beauty secret you can share with us?
My ultimate beauty secret would be coconut water.
What three products can you not live without?
My ‘Decadence’ fragrance, a bright red lipstick, and a mascara.
What’s your favorite beauty look?
Bold eyes and bright red lips!
What’s your top beauty tip?
One of the best pieces of beauty advice that I have received is to try to accentuate your beauty. You shouldn’t try to hide what you feel are imperfections with layers of makeup. Instead, highlight what you appreciate about yourself.
