Unless you’ve been living under a rock, your Instagram home page must’ve flooded with pictures from the MTV Video Music Awards. I don’t know about you, but I spent a good amount of my time scrolling all the different celebrity fashion and beauty looks. Lizzo‘s old Hollywood glam look and Camila Cabello‘s Grecian goddess look were a few of my faves. However, one look that I can’t stop obsessing over is Gigi Hadid‘s. From the flawless base to the golden lids, I was totally mesmerized by it! If you also loved Gigi’s makeup look as much as I did then you’re in the right place! Without any further ado here’s how you can recreate it:

The Base:

Gigi Hadid’s skin looked absolutely flawless. To recreate this look you’ll need to focus on minimizing pores and reducing texture. These products will help you create a similar base:

  • Primer: After you’ve moisturised your skin, apply a pore minimizing primer to your skin. This will help reduce texture and make your skin looked airbrushed.
  • Foundation: Use a matte foundation that has full coverage. The star of Gigi’s makeup look was her golden eyeshadow. Hence, it’s better to give the base a matte finish.
  • Translucent Powder: Apply a dusting of translucent powder to your skin to set your foundation and mattify your skin.
  • Bronzer: Use a bronzer in the hollows of your face to add some warmth to your skin.

The Eyes:

Your eyelids should take the centre stage when it comes to recreating Gigi’s VMAs makeup look. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Eyeshadow: Choose a shimmery golden shade for the inner corners of your eyes and a warm brown for the crease. Put some of the brown eyeshadow on your lower lash line.
  • Mascara: Use a lengthening mascara to coat your eyelashes.

The Lips:

The easiest part of recreating this makeup look is this step. Lucky for you, I found exactly what lipstick Gigi’s MUA used on her lips. It was Maybelline’s Color Sensational Shine Compulsion Lipstick in the shade “Baddest Beige”. Have a look at it:
