Last night, for the 2016 MTV Movie Awards, Sarah Tanno for Maybelline New York created an edgy, glowing makeup look for model and Maybelline spokesperson Gigi Hadid. Tanno kindly shares the detailed steps behind this look with us below.

To give the skin a soft semi-matte finish, Tanno applied Dream Velvet Foundation ($10.99) 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 Facestudio Master Fix Setting + Perfecting Powder ($9.99) in Translucent sets it all in place.  

Blush and Contour
Gigi’s stunning bone structure came into focus thanks to the bronze shade in the Facestudio Master Contour Face Contouring Pro Palette ($15) in Deep to Medium in the hallows 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.  

For definition, arches were traced with Eyestudio Brow Pomade Crayon ($9.99) in Blonde before Eyestudio Brow Drama Mascara ($7.99) in Blonde was brushed over top to lock hairs in place.  

Eye studio Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon ($6.99) in Barely Beige was first swiped all over the eyelids as a base and Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil ($7.99) 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 Eyestudio Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon in Charcoal Chrome and the matte black shade in the The Rock Nudes Palette ($11.99) 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. 

Two coats of Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara ($8,99) in Blackest Black made for extra-long lashes—and major drama.  

“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 ($6.99) in Nude before adding layers of Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid ($7.99) in Nude Thrill and Color Sensational The Buffs Lipstick ($7.99) in Bare All.
