Adriana Lima's insecurities

Adriana Lima's insecurities

Adriana Lima feels insecure.

The Victoria's Secret Angel has been working with the lingerie brand since 2000, making her currently the longest-serving Angel, but admits she gets days where she has to remind herself she is beautiful.

She said: "The best beauty advice I've received is to highlight the things you appreciate about yourself. You shouldn't try to hide what you feel are imperfections with make-up; instead embrace them.

"Even though I am a model, I have days where I have to tell myself that I have to be the best version of myself mentally and it will show physically."

The 34-year-old beauty loves finishing off a look with a spritz of perfume and believes her love of fragrance stems from her childhood when she used to watch her mother get ready.

She told The Telegraph's Stella magazine: "When I was a little girl in Brazil, I used to watch my mother get ready. She would apply beautiful bright-red lipstick and blush, and always finished off with fragrance.

"I think these memories are the reason I love all of those things now. Similar to how an accessory makes an outfit, I believe that fragrance finishes a beauty routine."
