GET THE LOOK | Gigi Hadid and Kacey Musgraves Makeup at the CMAs
“Kacey wore a gorgeous 70’s yellow Valentino Couture dress this year at the CMAs. As a respectful nod to classic country and a respectful nod to this classic house, Kacey and I decided (along with Giovanni Delgado and Erica Cloud because this is truly a team effort) to go tonal with a nude approach to all elements of makeup. Thanks to Maybelline, I had all the nude tones I needed to create one of my favorite looks.” -Moani Lee, Celebrity Makeup Artist
FACE: To create a fresh base I blended the Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation all over the skin, followed by the Instant Age Rewind Concealer under the eyes to conceal and brighten. Next, to give Kacey a sun-kissed glow I lightly contoured the skin with FaceStudio Master Bronzer Kit, before dusting the Fit Me! Blush in Nude to the apples of the cheeks.
EYES: I created a neutral eye using the NEW Nudes of New York Eyeshadow Palette, launching January 2020. Using the shade Founder, I dusted this light brown shade through the crease and below the lash line for subtle definition. Then, I packed the shade Artist onto the lid to brighten the look, before blending Globetrotter on the outer third. I finished the eyes by applying the Tattoo Studio Sharpenable Gel Pencil in Deep Onyx to the upper and lower lash line, and generous coats of The Falsies False Lash Mascara.
BROWS: I created a structured brow using the Brow Ultra Slim Defining Eyebrow Pencil in Medium Brown.
LIPS: For Kacey’s nude lip, I applied the Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lipstick in Nude Thrill.
Inspired by the flashing lights of Nashville and the vibrant glam of country music, Gigi Hadid’s beauty look was complete with golden shimmer eyes and a strong nude lip created by Celebrity Makeup Artist, Patrick Ta.
FACE: I lightly contoured the hallows of Gigi’s cheeks with the darkest shade of FaceStudio Master Contour V-Shape DuoStick in Deep followed by the lighter shade under the eyes, in the center of the forehead, on the chin and the bridge of the nose to bring light to the area. Next, I used the FitMe Blush in Nude and applied it to the apples of her cheeks, blending into the contour for a seamless finish. For a subtle but impactful highlight, I applied FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Molten Gold to the highest but flattest points of the cheekbones. I set the look using the FaceStudio Lasting Fix Makeup Setting Spray to ensure her glam stays put all night!
EYES: To create a subtle contour on the eyes I used shades from my favorite palette, the Lemonade Craze Eyeshadow Palette. Using the shade Sweet Tea, I used a fluffy brush and applied it to her crease, blending out to make sure there were no hard edges. I added the shade Sherbet to the whole eyelid using a flat brush. To bring the shadow colors together and round out her eyes, I also applied Sweet Tea to the lower lash line. To create Gigi’s sharp wing, I used TattooStudio Sharpenable Gel Pencil Longwear Eyeliner in Deep Onyx. This is my go-to liner because it does not budge once it dries! To finish the look, I applied two coats of The Falsies Black Drama Washable Mascara for long and full lashes.
BROWS: I lightly filled in Gigi’s brows using the new Brow Ultra Slim Defining Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde to add definition and mimic her natural brow hairs.
LIPS: I created Gigi’s statement nude lip by lining the lips with Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner in Purely Nude followed by Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lipstick in Nude Thrill.
