Maybelline New York spokesmodel and next level ‘it’ girl Gigi Hadid looked stunning on the red carpet at the recent Much Music Awards in Canada, pretty much killing it as per. Her makeup was the work of Patrick Ta, and is surprisingly easy to re-create when you know how.
Ta said after the event, “I was excited Gigi and I got to do this awards show together this year as she was the lead host. Gigi loves a fresh and natural look, but still glam at the same time. The inspiration for her look this year came from Gigi herself, which I was able to execute and make it my own. She wanted a bronze and beautiful eye with a bold aspect to it which was the red lip”. It’s a look I wholeheartedly get behind on a regular basis, and it’s pretty transseasonal and timeless as a look to boot.
When it comes to face, contour, and cheeks, Ta 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, he then applied Maybelline New York Baby Skin Pore Eraser (RRP$16.99). Ta wanted her complexion to look clean and bright without looking too heavy, so he applied the new Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation (RRP$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 (RRP$19.99) to really accentuate the cheekbones. To highlight, Ta 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 (RRP$22.99). He then added a highlight similar to Maybelline New York Master Hi-Light (RRP$19.99) to the high points of the cheekbones for extra glow. To make the skin dewy in all the right places, Ta lightly powdered the t-zone with a powder like Maybelline New York SuperStay 24HR Waterproof Powder (RRP$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 (RRP$19.99) to give her skin a natural and luminous finish.
Gigi wanted the eyes to look bright and clean, but boy did they pop. To get the look, Ta used Maybelline New York The Nudes Palette (RRP$29.99), which is one of my personal faves. He applied a light brown color in the crease and a skin tone color 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 (RRP$24.99). To create a thicker, more defined brow, Ta applied a product like Maybelline New York Eye Studio Brow Precise (RRP$18.99).
To complete the look, Ta applied a flesh colored lipstick to compliment 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 (RRP$19.99) to create the perfect hue. I haven’t tried either but now seriously want to!
