It’s a common misconception that people who are born beautiful are somehow also automatically born founts of beauty wisdom, put on this earth to spread their good-looking gospel to the masses so that we, too, can become beautiful. For example, if not for Charlize Theron, how would we ever have known the grave importance of washing our feet before bed?
But the abundance of very bad celebrity beauty advice floating around the internet tells a different story. Taylor Swift once put Sharpie on her eyelids, on purpose. Jennifer Aniston hates sunscreen. Tom Brady literally thinks that water is sunscreen. And longtime Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima just divulged her number-one secret to perfect mascara, which involves simply never taking it off — not even when you shower.
“My favorite thing is applying mascara. I love mascara on the eyes,” she told InStyle in a recent interview. “I like it to be very black, and I like when you just apply lots of layers. So on my days off, I just apply over and over and over. When I shower, the mascara runs over my skin, I wipe it off, and I apply it on top again. I absolutely love it.”
We can't imagine our ophthalmologist would ever advise it — but, hey, if showering in our Lash Sensational is all it takes to get sexy, smoldering eye makeup à la Lima, then maybe it’s worth a try. Plus, if you’ve ever wondered what Victoria’s Secret Angels do on their days off, now you know: They just apply mascara over and over and over. (One of them does, at least.)
