Usually when we imagine the beauty routines of models, it revolves around high-maintenance glamour and luxurious beauty products. The opposite is true for model Gigi Hadid, who keeps her routine simple and low-maintenance when she’s not at work.
In a recent video interview with W magazine, Gigi dished on her minimalist approach to makeup and her love for nude lipstick. “I wish I had the energy to do full makeup, honestly,” she said. “Like, there are people that I'm even friends with that are in full beauty, outfit, everything looks every single day, and I wish I had that energy. I just don't.”
She went on to say that if she does get some extra sleep or wants to look extra cute, she’ll reach for tinted moisturizer. Sounds like a familiar practice for many collegiettes!
“I hate facials—like, I'm so scared of them. I just don't want someone touching my face. I get claustrophobic,” she said in the video. Totally understandable, Gigi! So how does she keep her complexion glowing? “I put toothpaste on pimples to dry them out,” she said. “It works!”
To experience the benefits of a facial DIY-style, start by treating your skin to a scrub with gentle, exfoliating beads. We recommend the Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Pore Scrub ($7.99, ULTA). This will help to cleanse your skin and prepare it for a mask, such as the Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mask ($5.99, ULTA). Finish off your look with a tinted moisturizer like this one from NYX Cosmetics ($9.99, ULTA), and you’ll be ready to conquer campus in style!
Is your beauty routine low-maintenance like Gigi’s, or are you all about the products?
