Get the Look: Gigi Hadid at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards
Model, Maybelline spokeswoman, and one half of Kengi Gigi Hadid hit the red carpet last night for the MTV Movie Awards looking fierce AF. Gigi rocked a pinstripe Versace suit, Lili Claspe jewelry and turned heads by adding bangs into her hairstyle for the evening.
To help complete her edgy, rocker-ish look Gigi of course turned to Sarah Tanno for Maybelline New York to give her a glowing makeup look fit for the MTV shindig.
Inspiration: “We wanted to create a nod to Donatella Versace’s signature black-rimmed eye—but with a twist of neon yellow that make it punkier,” Tanno explains. “Combining the unexpected flash of color with velvet-y skin, tawny cheeks, and demi-matte nudes lips, she created a look that was equal parts sophisticated and cool—and completely different from any look the model has gone for on a red carpet before.”
It’s easy (and affordable) to get this look at home and here is the step by step breakdown from Sarah Tanno.
Face: To give the skin a soft semi-matte finish, Tanno applied Dream Velvet Foundation all over,then added Fit Me! Concealer in a shade slightly lighter than Gigi’s skin tone down the center of the nose and under the eyes to brighten. A light dusting of Face studio Master Fix Setting + Perfecting Powder in Translucent set it all in place.
Blush and contour: Gigi’s stunning bone structure came into focus thanks to the bronze shade in the Face Studio Master Contour Face Contouring Pro Palette in Deep to Medium in the hollows of the cheeks and temples. Then Tanno captured an ultra-warm flush by applying the blush to the apples and added a wash of the highlighting shade along the high point of the cheekbones.
Eyes: Eye Studio Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon in Barely Beige was first swiped all over the eyelids as a base and Eye Studio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in Soft Nude was drawn along the waterline for a wide-awake look. To add a smoldering element, the outer half of the top and bottom lash lines were edged with Eye Studio Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon in Charcoal Chrome and the matte black shade The Rock Nudes Palette was blended into the creases to create dimension. Then for a fun shock of color neon yellow pigment was brushed on the upper lids and in the inner corners.
Lashes: Two coats of Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara in Blackest Black made for extra-long lashes—and major drama.
Lips: “Gigi loves a nude lip and I wanted it to last all night,” Tanno says. Her strategy: She lined and filled in the mouth with Color Sensational Lip Liner in Nude before adding layers of ColorSensational Vivid Matte Liquid in Nude Thrill and Color Sensational The Buffs Lipstick in Bare All.
