How to Do Your Makeup Like Gigi Hadid!

Gigi Hadid is one of the biggest names out there right now. It isn’t hard to see why either; she’s an amazing supermodel, dating Zayn Malik, and she always looks flawless! The thing I’ve noticed about Gigi is that she never looks too done up, but she always looks gorgeous. That’s why I thought I’d write out some makeup tips that should help you to emulate her look. Enjoy!

Illuminating Primer
Gigi always looks like she’s glowing, at least a little bit. This is down to her illuminating primer! She definitely uses something shimmery underneath her foundation to brighten her skin and make her glow. Primer holds the makeup on for longer too, so if you don’t currently use it, then you should!

Use a Dewy Foundation
A dewy foundation will cover your imperfections without making you look like you’ve caked anything on. You’ll still have a slight sheen, and some of them will allow your natural skin to show through a little. If you need more coverage, the best thing you can do is apply lightly all over and then add a little more to blemish prone areas with a sponge. Make sure you blend it perfectly too!

Cat Eye or Soft Browns
When it comes to your eyes, you should either go for a classic cat eye or soft brown shadows. Gigi never goes OTT with her eye makeup. You could even go for some gold colours for a special occasion. Dot a shimmery shadow in the inner corner of your eyes to open them up! You can find lots of palettes that contain the colours you need, like a Z palette. Using a Z palette isn’t hard!

Peach blusher
Gigi always wears peachy blusher, as her complexion is quite warm. If yours is different, you might want to go for a slightly different blusher. She only wears a hint, so make sure you don’t get brush happy!

A Subtle Golden Glow
If you’re going for more of a bronzed look, then use bronzer to create a subtle golden glow. You can also use a nice golden highlighter on the tops of your cheeks, down your nose and in the arch of your brow.

Nude Liner and Gloss
Gigi doesn’t usually wear a dark lip. Her lips always look smooth and kissable, but subtle. For this, I’d use a nude liner to outline after applying a gloss. Then I’d use my finger to smudge the line slightly, so it doesn’t look too harsh. You can even exfoliate them beforehand, so they’re nice and smooth.

Lightly Fill in Brows and Tame
Gigi has naturally full brows, so they don’t ever look drawn on. This means if you fill your brows in, you need to make it subtle. You should also use a brow mascara to tame the brows afterwards, directing the hair upwards.

Hopefully, these tips help you to create a healthy glow and a look you can wear day or night. Gigi’s look is so versatile! Leave your thoughts on her look below. Bye for now!

Lots of Love
