American golden girl turned supermodel, Gigi Hadid, was always destined to make it big. “Since I was young,” she says, “I’ve been intrigued by the beauty industry and photography in general.
Years later, Gigi has gone on to grace the runways of Marc Jacobs, Giles, Sonia Rykiel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jeremy Scott, and Chanel — all by age 19. Her ever growing roster of magazine covers — from American Vogue to Harper’s Bazaar — makes this blonde beauty the most in-demand supermodel of 2016.
Good makeup is one of the best accessories.
Behind the scenes, Gigi is incredibly down to earth. Her confidence, glowy skin and effortless glam are all part of her trademark style.
“I call it Casual Chic,” she says, laughing. “Natural, glowy, golden and contoured.”
To achieve this look, Maybelline sat down with Gigi Hadid to discover just what was inside her makeup bag. “The first Maybelline product I ever used was my best friend’s Super Stay 24 Hour Foundation in 9th grade. I still use it — because who has time for touch ups?” Gigi demonstrates, using her fingertips to pat the hydrating formula across her cheekbones. It’s clear the long-lasting formula is perfect for super models on the go. Radiant and glowing, Gigi digs deeper into her makeup bag. “I love Maybelline mascara,” she says, pulling out her favorites. For instant glam, Gigi swipes on a few coats of Maybelline’s Pumped Up Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara — giving her lashes lift. For added drama, Gigi explains that she smudges dark liner around her eyes for a smoky, sexy look. She gracefully uncaps Maybelline’s Unstoppable Mechanical Pencil and demonstrates, smoothing the jet black liner across her lids.
For brows that wow, Gigi reveals her secret weapon — the new Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer. “Bold brows are so in,” she says, “and so much easier to manage with this.” She turns away, using the tapered brush to smooth and sculpt her brows to perfection. A few strokes upward and outward, and Gigi reveals her bolder brow. “Good makeup is one of the best accessories,” she declares in front of her vanity mirror.
Finally, after debating between sheer Baby Lip balms and deciding on Peach Punch, Gigi shares with us her ultimate beauty secret. “Confidence,” she says with a smile. “But even sometimes, everyone needs a little nudge to remind themselves they were born beautiful. For that, I recommend Maybelline.”
No makeup addict’s collection is complete without a Maybelline Nude’s Palette. Perfect for getting Gigi-level glam – all in one palette.
