23 years old, 178 cm tall, Gigi was born in Los Angeles from a Palestinian-Arab dad and Dutch mum. She has been working in the fashion world since 2011, first as a testimonial for Guess? and then on the New York catwalk for Desigual. A star was born and all the major fashion houses wanted her. From Chanel to Sonia Rykiel, Marc Jacobs, Dolce Gabbana, Moschino and Versace. Along with magazine covers and advertising campaigns around the world, Gigi collaborated on four capsule collection for Tommy Hilfiger, and the pieces became best sellers of the seasons.
The make-up we chose to look at was worn at Tom Ford Fashion Show in New York in September 2018. The shot which Gigi shares on Instagram, collecting more than 1 million and 200 thousand likes, reveals a simple but non-trivial, well researched look, able to enhance the characteristics of her face and her beauty.
While the hair is tied back in a delicate bun that frames the face, the focus is on the make-up. Lips have a nude look and eyes are outlined by a gentle black eyeliner and, even more, by a burgundy metallic eyeshadow, applied on the outside of the eyelid, but also on the inner fold. To complete the look, a perfectly blended primer.
Starting with a foundation in earthy but subtle tones for a as natural as possible complexion. The focus is on the eyes, using an eyeliner and eye shadow. The first, which must be black, follows the contour. After applying a base, use a metallic burgundy eyeshadow and a creamier marsala shade on top to be massaged slightly even on the lower lashes. Use then a mascara, by tapping the center of the eyelid. Finally, nude effect lips achieved with a subtle peach lipstick and some gloss to create a sensual and plumped mouth.
In terms of foundation, Dior Diorskin Forever Undercover: ultra-fluid, capable of blending with the complexion for a 24-hour mat texture.
For the eyes: Dolce & Gabbana Emotioneyes eyeliner, featuring an extra thin felt applicator for a sensuality to be discovered.
And MAC Cosmetics Eyeshadow, a pigmented powder, easy to spread and blend for a flawless look.
To finish, Full Lash Volume mascara by Shiseido, for a volumizing effect that gives lashes a bright and natural aspect.
Chanel Rouge Allure for lips, an ultra-fine, melt-away and second-skin texture, a palette of intense shades. A bold and daring style for Gigi Hadid.
