Everything is not as it seems when it comes to Lily Aldridge.

Sure, the Victoria's Secret model has insane good looks and a great metabolism, but even she uses a few tricks from her makeup team to appear ready for the beach.

"A good fake tan is always nice …. We have the best makeup artists who have the best bronzers, so they hook us up," she told Us Weekly.

Llly shared a few of her smoke-and-mirrors magic with the weekly magazine. Several of her tricks are easier than you might think.

"Another thing that makeup artists do is spray you with sunblock," she said. "It protects you from the sun, but gives you a really nice sheen for pictures, like you just woke up with sheeny, tan-looking skin."

Simple, right?

Blame it on the day job, but Lily also keeps her body and her health in mind at the dinner table. However, she doesn't go overboard with her dietary choices.

"In my normal life, I'm not this crazy person! I'm normal. I enjoy life, as you do," the mom of daughter Dixie Pearl, 3, said. "I'm pretty sure I ate some hamburgers over there."

Lily, who starred in Taylor Swift's award-winning "Bad Blood" video, said getting her beef on isn't a daily thing, especially when she needs to be especially fit.

"We compare ourselves to athletes," she says of her and her fellow models. "We make smart choices for a month before the show, we work out."

"I usually do two workouts a day leading up to the show," Lily said last year of her workout routines. The brunette beauty explained, "I do an hour in the morning, and thirty minutes in the afternoon."

Recently, it was "in season" for her and her fellow athletes, as they filmed the Victoria's Secret Swimsuit Special, which will air on CBS on March 9.

Along with her pals and fellow "angels" Alessanda Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo and Adriana Lima, Lily will also be joined by tour mates Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato.

"Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato were the performers, and we had a private concert on this beautiful island and we all just had a lot of fun!" she said.

Side note: Is there a time when Nick Jonas isn't surrounded by devastatingly beautiful women?
