Every year, a group of jaw-droppingly beautiful women strut their stuff on the Victoria’s Secret runway in glamorous lingerie and heavily embellished wings with a full-glam look that includes luscious waves, bronzed cheekbones, long lashes and glowing skin. However, off the runway, the lingerie brand’s famous models love to go the #nomakeup route and (lucky for us) share it on social media.

Whether they’re at the beach, gym or the airport, these Victoria’s Secret models love to show off their radiant complexions. There are a few models who keep it real as well, such as Taylor Hill’s refreshing selfie showing her acne.

Below, take a look at 17 Victoria’s Secret models, from the Hadid sisters to Candice Swanepoel, who went without a lick of mascara, foundation or highlighter.

Adriana Lima


Adriana Lima is the longest-serving Victoria’s Secret Angel, hanging up her wings in 2018 after walking a total of 18 runways shows in 20 years – and from her toned body to her flawless features, it’s no surprise. Whether it’s post-workout or before bedtime, Lima loves to take an au naturel selfie and show it off.

Bella Hadid

Kendall Jenner

While there are much bigger problems happening in the world, suffering from acne for me was debilitating. It’s something that I’ve dealt with since I was a young teen and has caused me to feel anxious, helpless and insecure. As humans, I don’t think we share our insecurities enough because we live in a time where being “perfect” is the standard. We curate our life online and pick the pretty moments to post. I’d like to show a younger generation that not everything is perfect. Being insecure about my acne gave me thick skin but I wouldn’t ever wish that feeling upon anyone so after trying countless options, I found something that has been helpful in maintaining clear skin for me. It’s been a long journey but I’m excited for where my skin is now. I didn’t think I’d see the day where I would feel confident posting a makeup free picture. My goal is to open up a dialogue around skin positivity. ❤️

Ever since she attended the 2018 Golden Globes with visible acne, Kendall Jenner has been outspoken about her skincare struggles. After her announcement as a spokesperson for Proactiv, Jenner posted a makeup-free picture on Instagram and captioned it, “I didn’t think I’d see the day where I would feel confident posting a makeup free picture.”
