Gigi’s collaboration with Maybelline is a stunner!
American model and TV personality Gigi Hadid made her designer debute with a clothes collection for Tommy Hilfiger. Now the style icon teams up with Maybelline to launch her first makeup collection. You can’t miss the lovely soft pink packaging with the name of Gigi Hadid printed all over. There’s everything you need to create Gigi’s two iconic looks: her fresh, bold East Coast Glow and the sunkissed, California-cool West Coast Glam. About two weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with these products at Maybelline Beauty Day in Brussels. If you haven’t had the chance to visit, here’s a look at this lovely limited collection.
Tinted Primer is a tinted gel which preps the skin for make-up, providing at the same time a sheer tint of color. It’s available in light-medium and medium-deep, when in doubt, choose the lightest one. Apply it with a sponge or your with your fingers. You’ll notice that it leaves the skin with a healthy glow, so you can wear it just as well alone as under foundation.
The Strobing Liquid comes in a handy squeeze tube and is available in GG21 Gold and GG Iridescent. They look pretty bold coming right out of the tube, but they melt away once applied to the skin. Iridescent turns into a soft, fresh pink, which looks lovely on light skin tones. Apply sparsely (you can easily it build up) and make sure to blend the edges. Fool-proof strobing guaranteed!
With the Eye Contour Palette it’s easy to create a natural look in four easy steps, demonstrated on the back of the palette. It’s available in two versions with either warm or cool toned colors. Both palettes contain four natural mattes plus one highlighter. The mini Eyeshadow Palette features six shades to create the West Coast Glow look. The steps are also explained on the back side.

No Gigi Hadid look is complete without an eyeliner. For a smudge-free and waterproof result, you can either pick the soft and creamy Gel Eyeliner in black or nude, or the Liquid Eyeliner for a sharp, defined liner.
Lash Sensational Mascara has a wand with spiky bristles in different lengths. Thanks to the bended shape they grab and coat all your lash hairs. If you like dramatic lashes with extra length and volume, you might want to try the dual-sided Fiber Mascara. The three application steps are one coat of mascara first, then swipe on the white fibres (they look somewhat spooke, like spiderweb material) and reapply mascara for those eye-catching lashes.
The Lipliner doesn’t need sharpening, a turn of the bottom end makes the liner appear which is handy on-the-go. It’s available in six shades to match all colors of the Matte Lipstick. These creamy lipsticks feature nudes, some bolder browns and a vibrant red. Up to you to create your favourite look!
