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.
