Model, mom and Marc Jacobs muse, Brazilian beauty Adriana Lima is celebrating 15 years in the Victoria's Secret spotlight. The supermodel, who has 5.6 million Instagram followers and 6 million Facebook fans, says it's the influence she has on her two daughters, Valentina, 6, and Sienna, 3, that dictates how she acts on and off line. "I know everything I do helps shape the type of women they're going to grow up to be," she said.
So what are Adriana's model mantras? Click through for her beauty tips – ones that every woman can use.
STICK TO WHAT SUITS YOU.
"After so many years working in the beauty industry, I know what works for me and what I like. I can't imagine myself in wild-colored makeup; I always like to keep things classy on the red carpet."
RED LIPSTICK FIXES EVERYTHING.
"For a night out, I like either a smoky eye and a natural lip, or I'll choose the complete opposite and wear a bold red lip and some eyeliner and mascara. I love Maybelline's Siren in Scarlet lipstick ($7.49) and their Lash Sensational mascara ($6.99) ."

CONDITION, CONDITION, THEN CONDITION AGAIN.
"My hair is very long so I normally keep it in a ponytail or wear it down. I have a great stylist in Miami who I see to help make sure I'm maintaining healthy hair but at home I apply Kérastase's Masque Elixir Ultime ($65) as well as the Moroccanoil Treatment ($47), which contains argan oil. I like the smell and it leaves my hair soft and ultra shiny."
MIX YOUR PERFUME TO YOUR MOOD.
"When I'm selecting a fragrance I look for something that makes me feel some kind of emotion. Usually a wood scent when I'm feeling sexy and a tough or a fruity smell that reminds me of running around in the sun for when I want to be more playful."

MAKE EXERCISE YOUR THERAPY.
"I've been boxing for more than 10 years, so it's definitely my go-to workout. I have coaches in New York and Miami so depending on which city I'm in, I work out with one of them almost daily. It's therapeutic for mind and body."
SAY YES TO SNACKS.
"I typically eat a lot of protein becaue I do very intense workouts so I need to keep up my strength throughout the day. I keep fresh or dried fruit and protein bars in my bag to snack on when I'm on the go and I always have to have a piece of dark chocolate!"
SWEAT IT OUT.
"Clean, moisturized skin should be the foundation for nay beauty look. I'm naturally lucky in that when I work out I sweat a lot, but if I quickly rehydrate afterwards, my skin glows. I also like to use Rodin's Olio Lusso ($170) or Sisley's Black Rose Precious Face Oil ($235) – my skin absorbs oils better than moisturizers."
TREAT YOURSELF OFTEN.
"Because I work out so hard I enjoy getting massages - it's a nice treat when I have some downtime."
GRAB AN AFTERNOON PICK-ME-UP.
"I drink a lot of water but when I feel a little tired I reach for a green juice or an espresso."
HAPPINESS IS DEFINITELY THE BEST BEAUTY TRICK.
"It's what I always tell my daughters, Valentina and Sienna."
