#BeautyCrush: Gigi Hadid

By now it’s safe to say that the name Hadid is synonymous with pretty young things, thanks to sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid. Both ladies dominated the runways of 2016, most recently the highly-anticipated Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The Hadid’s are definitely the it-girl’s we’re crushing over, from their on-trend style to their big lips and bigger brows. But it’s Gigi that we’re currently #crushing on. From Karl Lagerfeld to Donatella Versace to Tommy Hilfiger, everyone wants a piece of Gigi. And, now you can smell like her too (she’s the face of Tommy Hilfiger’s newest fragrance, The Girl).

To emulate Gigi’s signature beauty, we’ve compiled a slideshow of best looks with tips from Gigi herself…


A true California girl, Gigi effortlessly rocks long, wavy, beach-blonde hair year round. She credits its health to not washing her hair on the daily. Gigi’s natural texture is pretty perfect, but her sky-high ponies are also on point. Lately, Gigi has been rocking a darker caramel brown shade that she debuted at this year’s AMAs and, most recently, at the VS Fashion Show. Whether she’s stepping out in her signature California girl locks, a trendy high-pony or fresh faux-bob (AMAs 2015), we swoon.


Gigi has said that her go-to look is simply “foundation, bronzer, and mascara.” She admits that she doesn’t shape her brows (#envy), owning their natural shape and simply “cleaning them up.” A Maybelline New York spokesmodel, Gigi is a fan of Maybelline cosmetics, opting for Sensational Loaded Bolds Lipstick ($6) in Coffee Addiction and Gone Greige for her signature nude yet oh-so perfect lip. We’re into the whole no-makeup-makeup vibe, but that smoky brown eye and pink pout she sported at the AMAs was a #glamslam.


Nobody makes dewy, sun-kissed skin look better than Gigi (maybe Gisele, but it’s debatable). Gigi uses Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel Body ($65) for that coveted supermodel glow and has raved about St. Ives Apricot Scrub ($4), calling it her “favorite.” Gigi also credits over-moisturizing to counter the effects of too much makeup, using Chanel Hydra Beauty Crème Riche ($87) as her cream of choice. Sugar lip scrubs are also to thank for that plump, perfect pout. Try this celeb must-have from Sara Happ ($24).
