Adriana Lima's Beauty Stash

Before you tune into the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show tonight, get your hands on these Angel-approved beauty goods and sweet splurges.

As a Victoria's Secret supermodel who struts down the runway in nothing but a pair of panties, false lashes, and glittering wings, Adriana Lima knows a thing or two about beauty. Off the catwalk, the Angel has a surprisingly down-to-earth approach to her makeup routine. "When I'm not working, I live in shorts, a T-shirt, and just a bit of mascara. That's when I feel the sexiest." Here, she dishes on her pre-fashion show workout (hint: it's a playground favorite), the gifts she'll be giving—and getting—this holiday season, and her favorite beauty buy to stock up on when at home in Brazil.

Jumping Rope: "I box and jump rope regularly to keep my arms and legs toned. My trainer Michael Olajide (a former pro boxer) taught me that I have no excuse to skip my work outs. All I need is a rope and 10 minutes—no gym necessary."

Victoria's Secret "The Dreamer" Flannel Pajama Set, $50: "A super-cozy PJ set is my top holiday gift pick. They're great for everyone!"

Victoria's Secret Gift Card: "This is what I want for Christmas, so I can go on my own little shopping spree!"

Cupcakes: "Baked by Melissa cupcakes are my diet guilty pleasure—they're way too good to pass up."

Eyelash Curler: "From my years as a model, I've learned that curling your eyelashes is the single most important step. It opens up your eyes instantly."

Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Face Oil, $140: "I always keep this essential oil-infused moisturizer in my makeup bag. It's great for getting dewy skin—without being greasy."

Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Soothing Lip Balm in Pink Sugar, $7: "This aloe vera-packed moisturizing lip balm is my carry-on travel essential."

Colorama Nail Polish, $1: "I'm obsessed with all the bright colors. Whenever I'm home in Brazil I pick up the fun, new shades."

CND Shellac manicures: "Lately, I've been into gel manicures. I'm always on the go and I love how these never chip."

Watch Adriana and the rest of the Victoria's Secret Angels work it tonight, November 29 at 10pm on CBS.
