Gisele Bundchen-Brady (I'm not sure if she's gotten around to legally hyphenating the surname, but she should. It has a nice ring to it, don't you think?) graces the April cover of Vanity Fair with an envy-inducing pic of the supermodel's perpetually golden bare body and flawless complexion. The caption reads: "The Most Beautiful Women In The World?" I think someone over at VF got their punctuation wrong. A question mark? More like an exclamation point!
Shot by famed fashion photographer, Mario Testino, the spread includes a collage of motivating, this-is-why-I-must-diet nudes of the model's banging bod. Oh yeah, the article accompanying the
images is rather inspiring too. Gisele channels her "spiritual" and "positive" side; she's like the female version of P. Diddy's twitter persona (LET'S GO!) -- shall we call her G. Diddy?
I digress. Back to the beauty. Gisele's like a diamond in the rough - a gem in a sea of charcoal. She's so hot, she's forced to carry around a fire extinguisher in case she bursts into flames. She's like a -- you get the point.
Here's how you can recreate Gisele's au naturale face:
Start by applying a tinted moisturizer to add a healthy glow to the complexion. Try Laura Mercier's Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20. For that light smokey eye, apply a muted, matte brown shadow to the lid and below the lower lash line, smudging out. Finish with a few coats of a thickening mascara. MAC's Pro Lash in Coal Black will give eyes that va-va-voom pop. For cheeks, a subtle apricot glow helps to define bone structure. I'm loving Prescriptives In Bloom Cheek Color Duo in Warm. It has two shades that, when mixed together, create a shimmering hue that suits most every skin tone. Finish off the look with a peach lippy. Try to find a shade that works in tandem with your newly bronzed complexion.
