Wow, talk about a bold beauty look! Gigi Hadid got one seriously colorful makeover for Maybelline on July 19 with a part mermaid, part unicorn eye makeup look. Get the details on her rainbow makeup, and let us know if you think it’s cool or just crazy.
Gigi Hadid, 21, got the ultimate transformation on her latest photo shoot, sporting the brightest smokey eye makeup we’ve ever seen. Joining all of the Maybelline models as they took over the brand’s Snapchat, Gigi’s shimmering blue, pink and purple creation totally stole the show.
Erin Parsons was the makeup artist behind Gigi’s latest look, and it seems she had trouble naming the over-the-top style, saying on Instagram: “Sneak peek for@maybelline 😍 Intergalactic mermaid unicorn power ranger is what we decided to call this look 😂❤️💜💙💚 love you@gigihadid 😘 #teamunicorn hair 💇🏼💦@kennalandny nails @fleuryrosenails 💋💋 #erinparsonsmakeup #maybelline#gigihadid 🦄🦄🦄💫💫💫.”
While the official name for the rainbow makeup is up for debate, there’s no doubt that a ton of sparkles and eyeshadows are needed to recreate it. Not only did Erin include shimmering shadow throughout the wash of color on Gigi’s lids, but she also added that intergalactic vibe by highlighting Gigi’s cheeks and cupid’s bow with those same iridescent colors.
We’ve seen Gigi rock some bold looks before, including majorly volumized curls and even a $2,000 manicure at the Met Gala, but this rainbow eye makeup definitely trumps them all. And while Maybelline hasn’t shared the exact how-to just yet, we have a feeling the exclusive Ulta Beauty Maybelline The Graffiti Nudes Eyeshadow Palette, $9.99, was to thank for all of those pigmented colors. Despite the fact that it calls itself a nude palette, the 12-shade set includes neon bright hues like fuchsia, purple and teal in matte and shimmer finishes.
