People say beauty is only skin-deep, but how truthful is this statement actually? Take a look at our list of Victoria’s Secret models without any makeup on, and judge for yourself!
1. Adriana Lima
This angel with a long career looks more like a child than a glamorous diva without her makeup on.
2. Alessandra Ambrosio
One of the most famous VS models really lives up to her title, until you see her in her natural state and realize she is actually pretty tomboyish.
3. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
The flawless model looks incredible in the first photo, but her natural look reveals a more tired face, that’s even a bit withered too.
4. Emily DiDonato
The transformation in this image is incredible and anyone who claims that good makeup and a stylist can’t transform an ordinary girl into a pinup goddess is a liar.
5. Doutzen Kroes
The famous model indeed looks much different in the natural photo, but after careful examination, the most striking feature that drastically changes her appearance are her barely-there eyebrows.
6. Candace Swanepoel
Once again we are reminded that makeup is a powerful tool because once a bombshell and a true face of the Victoria’s Secret brand, Candace without her stage face looks like a completely ordinary girl.
7. Heidi Klum
Heidi still looks amazing on the stage, but when she takes her makeup off, we can begin to tell that she is actually starting to age.
8. Gisele Bundchen
Gisele is best at rocking the natural look since her glammed up version isn’t all that different from her bare face – good job girl, you are gorgeous in all types of occasions!
9. Taylor Hill
The young model has a bright future in front of her and apparently knows how to use makeup like a pro – by toning down her naturally too intense facial features, she creates a more balanced, luxurious look.
10. Cara Delevingne
The model turned actress looks breathtaking when she is pampered by a team of stylists and artists, but in reality, she is probably the biggest tomboy of all the women on this list and seems almost unrecognizable without her signature makeup.
11. Miranda Kerr
A glowing face of VS angel and a simple, next-door girl – such is the contrast that a good makeup artist can create.
12. Lily Aldridge
The slightly androgynous model looks tired and plain without her makeup, while with a bit of highlighting and a touch of bronze here and there she transforms into a stunning Victoria’s angel.
13. Erin Heatherton
Erin has said goodbye to the pressure of being the face of the popular lingerie brand and now spends her days sporting the natural look that, we dare to say, makes her look more beautiful?
14. Bar Rafaeli
Leonardo DiCaprio’s former girlfriend looks almost as stunning without her full face of makeup, and she is definitely one of those women who doesn’t need touch-ups in order to be gorgeous.
15. Karolina Kurkova
This is a huge metamorphosis that is achieved by pointing out the best attributes, while all of Karolina’s flaws were cleverly hidden away under layers of makeup.
