Gigi Hadid stepped on to the Much Music Awards red carpet over the weekend, rocking a bold red lip and beautiful bronzed eye – and we’ve tracked down the actual products she used to create the look!
The head of Gigi’s glam squad was her longtime makeup artist Patrick Ta, who took inspiration from the lady herself when creating the beauty concept: “She wanted a bronze and beautiful eye with a bold aspect to it, which was the red lip,” he explains.
So let’s break it down…
Face, Contour, and Cheeks: Patrick applied a moisturising oil to give Gigi’s complexion a luminous and smooth base. Any extra hydration allows the makeup to lie beautifully on the skin. To ensure her skin appeared flawless, Ta applied Maybelline New York Baby Skin Pore Eraser, $16.99. He wanted her complexion to look clean and bright without being too heavy, so he applied the new Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation, $24.99. Using a dark shade in the same foundation, he lightly contoured the hollows of the cheeks and added Maybelline New York Fit Me! Bronzer, $19.99, to really accentuate the cheekbones.
To highlight, Patrick applied a concealer two shades lighter than the base foundation under the eyes. For this, he used the superstar Maybelline New York Better Skin Concealer, $22.99. He then added a highlight similar to Maybelline New York Master Hi-Light, $19.99, to the high points of the cheekbones for extra glow. To make the skin dewy in all the right places, Patrick lightly powdered the T-zone with a powder like Maybelline New York SuperStay 24HR Waterproof Powder, $25.99. Finally, he applied a bronze blush to the apples of the cheeks and sprayed the face with Maybelline New York Master Fix Setting Spray, $19.99, to give her skin a natural and luminous finish.
Eyes: Gigi wanted the eyes to look bright and clean. To get the look, Patrick used Maybelline New York The Nudes Palette, $29.99. He applied a light brown colour in the crease and a skin tone colour on the lid, and then added in a gold shade to finish off the look. He curled the lashes and coated twice with mascara. To recreate a similar look use Maybelline New York Colossal Go Extreme Leather Black Mascara, $24.99.
Brows: To create a thicker, more defined brow, Patrick applied a product like Maybelline New York Eye Studio Brow Precise, $18.99.
Lips: To complete the look, he applied a flesh coloured lipstick to complement the colour on her cheeks. He used shades similar to Craving Coral (685) and Siren in Scarlet (690) from the Maybelline New Color Sensational Creamy Mattes range, $19.99, to create the perfect hue.
