Is it just me, or is it very easy to lose track of time when scrolling through the enviable makeup looks on Gigi Hadid's Instagram page? It makes sense, since the supermodel-of-the-moment always sports the newest techniques and products — thanks in large part to a bevy of famous makeup artists on speed dial (Patrick Ta, Hung Vanngo, and Erin Parsons, to name just a few).
Unfortunately, most of the makeup that adorns the faces of the stars like her tend to be a little pricey — to say the least. Which makes copying Hadid's looks all the more alluring. To wit: Since she's a face of Maybelline, she's regularly wearing a full face of drugstore makeup from the brand. We took a cue from the star and challenged ourselves to recreate a killer look she wore in L.A. this summer.
Now, you may notice that drugstore makeup has been getting increasingly more expensive, so we gave ourselves some perimeters: Maria and I decided to find products to mimic the look that wouldn't set us back more than $30 each. In the video above, we set out to mimic Hadid's bronze smoky eye, luminous skin, and plum lip. Did we measure up on our budgets? You decide.
