Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid gave us double the backstage beauty looks to love during Paris Fashion Week. The model pals sported dewy, bronzed skin and natural pouts you can copy any season!
While many of the sequin-embellished and rainbow-hued makeup looks at Paris Fashion Week prove hard to wear in real life, the classic golden and glowing skin at Balmain easily translates to us makeup fanatics, making it beauty at its best. Find out how you can channel Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid with their Balmain beauty looks.
A major show like Balmain calls for a major makeup artist like Tom Pecheux to match. Tom worked with MAC to give Kendall and Gigi their bronzed goddess glows, a look you can recreate by concentrating more on your skin than your actual makeup.
If your natural skintone is more pasty than beachy bronze, start by using a few drops of St. Tropez Self-Tan Luxe Dry Facial Oil to perk up your skin. To give you that often coveted, but practically impossible to possess lit-from-within glow, put your usual moisturizer aside and use MAC Strobe Cream all over your face.
Kendall Jenner & Gigi Hadid’s Balmain Beauty — Get Their Golden Glow
Apply a light liquid or cream foundation and sweep the MAC Sculpted Face Prep + Prime Highlighter across the high points of your face (cheekbones, browbones, bridge of the nose and cupid’s bow), using your fingers to blend for a natural finish. Keep the rest of your makeup simple with peachy cheeks, a soft bronze eyeshadow, full brows and a natural lip.
