Gigi Hadid shared a surprising beauty secret on Snapchat when she revealed her gorgeous lashes are in fact, totally real. Plus, the model’s current mascara of choice is only $7! Get the details on the lash-defining and thickening formula, ahead.
Gigi Hadid, 21, is makeup goals, whether she’s strutting down the runway, posing on the red carpet or rocking one of her many flawless off-duty looks. And as one of the model faces behind Maybelline, Gigi’s makeup looks also happen to be completely affordable (no matter how detailed they get).
Always sharing behind-the-scenes looks from her shoots over on her Snapchat, Gigi recently showed us the mascara behind her voluminous lashes and her makeup artist’s technique for applying it. Using the new Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Spider Effect Mascara, $6.99, Gigi’s choice creates the most dramatic lashes you can get without falsies.
Posting the how-to on Instagram, makeup artist Tom Pecheux can be seen layering on the mascara, starting at the root of Gigi’s lashes and wiggling the brush back and forth as he runs the bristled brush to the tip of her lashes.
The spiked brush and mascara formula were specifically developed by Maybelline to help achieve a thicker, slightly clumped style dubbed spider lashes. Depending on how dramatic you want your lashes to look, you can use the tapered tip of the brush to group your lashes together in a full spider lash look. Or, follow Tom’s lead and simply run the thicker edge of the brush through your lashes for evenly defined lashes.
