Beauty Breakdown: Gigi Hadid's Lady in Red Look
In case you missed it, Gigi Hadid was a vision in red at the Much Music Awards. Talk about red lip look goals. Makeup artist Patrick Ta tell us, "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.” Read on for Patrick's steps behind the look.
Face, Contour, and Cheeks: Ta applied a moisturizing 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 glowy and flawless, Ta applied Maybelline New York Master Prime Blur + Illuminate. Ta wanted her complexion to look clean and bright without looking too heavy, so he applied Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation. Using a dark shade in the same foundation, he lightly contoured the hollows of the cheeks and added Maybelline New York Fit Me! Bronzer 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. He then added Maybelline New York Master Strobe Highlighting Stick (launching in July 2016) 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 Maybelline New York Face Studio Master Fix Setting Powder. Finally, he applied a bronze blush to the apples of the cheeks and sprayed the face with Maybelline New York Master Fix Setting Spray to give her skin a natural and luminous finish.
Eyes: Gigi wanted the eyes to look bright and clean. To get the look, Ta used Maybelline New York The Nudes Palette. 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 Maybelline New York Spider Effect Mascara.
Brows: To create a thicker, more defined brow, Ta applied Maybelline New York Brow Precise Micro in Blonde. (launching in July 2016)
Lips: To complete the look, Ta applied a flesh colored lipstick to compliment the color on her cheeks. He used the shades Orange Danger and Smoking Red from Maybelline New York The Loaded Bolds collection (online now and nationwide in July 2016) to create the perfect hue.
