Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio detailed her ‘beachy Brazilian’ beauty routine before heading to the beach — as she admitted her pimples sometimes make her feel like a ‘teenager’ all over again.
But the model confessed when doing her makeup that she still gets a few pimples on occasion, specifically along her jawline and chin.
Fresh-faced: Alessandra Ambrosio, 38, detailed her makeup and skincare routine in a video with Vogue to achieve a ‘beachy Brazilian’ glow
Baring it all: The supermodel went through the various steps of her skincare routine, while showing off her makeup-free skin on camera
First step: She will first apply a sheet mask and use a jade roller on her skin to help makeup the face and increase circulation
Priorities: The former Victoria’s Secret Angel admitted she sometimes gets pimples, which make her feel like a teenager. She uses concealer to cover any unwanted marks
‘I feel like a teenager every time I have to cover my pimples,’ Alessandra said when concealing the marks.
‘I guess it’s a good thing,’ she continued. ‘Thank you pimples for making me feel like a teenager.’
The beauty routine first started with the model piling her long brown hair into a bun at the top of her head to promote more volume.
‘My hair is very straight, and I want to get that kind of like that beautiful beach look,’ Alessandra said.
Face wipes removed any excess makeup on Alessandra’s skin from the previous night before the model decided to use a mask to awaken the skin.
First, she applied hand sanitizer to her hands, before placing the sheet mask onto her face and using a jade roller to press the product into the skin.
‘When I’m doing a mask it feels nice and gets the circulation going in my face,’ she said about the beauty tool. ‘Usually this jade roller is in my fridge, so it’s very cold because in the morning I want to wake up. And this definitely wakes me up.’
Once the mask was taken off, Alessandra then spritzed her skin with Kiehl’s Cactus Flower & ‘Tibetan Ginseng’ Hydrating Mist (
The beauty routine then moved to sunscreen as Alessandra lived in California where the sun was plentiful.
Smooth: Next step in her routine is foundation, and Alessandra prefers a tinted moisturizer so her skin still looks like skin
Focused: After the foundation is done, Alessandra will apply brow gel to smooth the area. She will then use eyeliner to make her eyes look bigger
Busy: ‘I’m a mom of two,’ she said during the video while using concealer. ‘I feel young, but I’m not that young. I’m going to use it on my brown spots that I have’
Cheeky grin: Bronzing up the face was the next step in Alessandra’s routine as she worked to match the color to her current skin tone
Bright: She then applied blush to the apples of her cheeks and opted to go without highlighter
‘Sun is a big thing for me,’ she said. ‘Every day is sunny here. So I have to wear sunblock. I protect my skin because I want to keep going to the sun every day.’
Alessandra will apply sunscreen to her face before using Dr. Barbara Sturm Sun Drops (
Instead of using foundation, Alessandra opts for a tinted moisturizer from Beauty Counter (
‘I am not a big fan of foundation but if I have something special I would obviously apply some,’ Alessandra confessed. ‘But I like the skin to show.’
‘Brazilian beauty to me it means natural,’ she continued. ‘It means glowy. You get a little tan.’
Her next step is concealer to cover any dark marks or unwanted blemishes.
‘I’m a mom of two,’ she said during the video. ‘I feel young, but I’m not that young. I’m going to use it on my brown spots that I have.’

Alessandra moved onto eyes where she puts an emphasis on the eyeliner to create a subtle cat eye. She said the liner works to make her eyes appear bigger.
To achieve the perfect cat eye, she advised to ‘always aim to the end of your eyebrow’ when creating the tip.
Get the glow: An important step in Alessandra’s routine is bronzing up the skin with the combination of oil and moisturizer
Bombshell: Alessandra then shook her hair loose from its bun before adding a little volume with the help of hair products
Beautiful: With her glowy look complete, Alessandra was ready to head off to the beaches in California for a relaxing day
She then applied the L’Oreal Paris Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara (
Bronzing up the face was the next step in Alessandra’s routine as she worked to match the color to her current skin tone. Then, instead of using any highlighter, Alessandra brightened up the face with Charlotte Tilbury’s Beach Lip & Cheek Stick (
For lips she contoured the edges with a darker lip pencil before applying lip stick and a balm over top.
The final step in her beauty routine involved bronzing up the skin and giving it a nice glow before heading to the beach.
‘I was a Victoria’s Secret Model, an Angel, for almost like 20 years,’ Alessandra said while prepping her body products.
‘I did 17 fashion shows for Victoria’s Secret, and one of the biggest parts is taking care of your skin. I like to keep it nice and moist and shiny and pretty and glowy. You want to get that glow.’
