MTV Movie Awards – Gigi Hadid – Get The Look

Gigi-Hadid_MTV-Awards-lowGigi Hadid looked stunning on the red carpet of the MTV Movie Awards. The Maybelline spokesperson was perfection with a look created by Sarah Tanno.

Let’s break it down:
Tanno wanted to give a nod to Donatella Versace’s signature black-rimmed eye, but with a twist. Here’s what she wore (all Maybelline products):

Face: Dream Velvet Foundation all over, then Fit Me! Concealer in a lighter shade down the nose and under the eyes to brighten them. This was followed by a quick dusting of Facestudio Master Fix Setting + Perfecting Powder in Translucent, to set things in place.

Blush & Contour: Tanno used Facestudio Master Contour Face Contouring Pro Palette in Deep to Medium in the hollows of cheeks (show me your fish face!) and temples. Blush was added to the apples of cheeks, accompanied by a highlight along the high point of the cheekbones. Gorgeous!

Brows: (You know this is important) Tanno used Eyestudio Brow Pomade Crayon in Blonde, followed by Eyestudio Brow Drama Mascara in Blonde to set hairs in place.

Eyes: Eyestudio Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon in Barely Beige was placed all over the lid to act as a base, while Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in Soft Nude was placed along the waterline for a wide-awake and fresh look. To smoke it out, the outer half and bottom lash lines were edged in Eyestudio Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon in Charcoal Chrome and the matte black shade from The Rock Nudes Palette was blended into the crease. For a fun, edgy look, neon yellow pigment was brushed on the upper lids and inner corners of the eyes.

Lashes: Adding a couple of coats of Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara in Blackest Black gave eyes major drama.
Lips: A nude lip balanced out the dramatic eye, so Tanno lined and filled in the mouth with Color Sensation Lip Liner in Nude before adding Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid in Nude Thrill and Color Sensation The Buffs Lipstick in Bare All.
