What better excuse to go ga-ga for Gigi and look back at her best beauty looks from the past year than in celebration of today being her birthday (she’s turning the grand old age of 20)? Having started her career as a Guess model at just two years old, Gigi Hadid is now the face of Maybelline cosmetics and has rocked the runway for some of the world’s biggest designers, including Marc Jacobs, Chanel, and Jean Paul Gaultier. This is one girl who knows how to look good.

At Pirelli’s event in Milan, Hadid rocked a burnt-amber smoky eye and a gorgeous glossy lip. Apply your eyeshade and blend towards the outer edges before using it to line underneath your eye. Make your peepers pop with a thickening mascara, add a slick of glossy lipstick, and you’re good to go.

The surfer-cool look Hadid chose for the Fashion Los Angeles Awards Show was all about beachy waves and peachy cheeks. Scrunch a salt spray into your hair before tying it into a low, loose bun, then set with a non-sticky hairspray to keep your tousled tresses in place. Complete the look with a pop of peach on the apples of your cheeks.

To be a bronzed beauty like Hadid, it’s time to get your glow on. Apply your bronzer underneath your cheekbones, on your temples, along your jaw line, and across your forehead to add dreamy definition. Set off your features by highlighting the tops of your cheeks and inner corners of your eyes, and then create a cat-eye wing with a liquid liner.

Backstage at New York Fashion Week, the model boasted her barefaced beauty. For the ‘no-makeup makeup’ look, pick products that offer lightweight coverage and won’t mask your skin. Using your fingers, apply a CC cream all over your face before using a light concealer under the eyes and on any blemishes or areas of redness. Nourish lips with a natural lip balm that has a hint of a hue.

At a 2015 Oscars Party, Gigi glammed up with a slicked-back up-do, nude lips, natural skin, and flash lashes. The trick? Line your eyes with a white liner to make them appear bigger and brighter. Opt for false lashes to really create some evening drama, and choose a nude lip shade. This will let your eyes do the talking whilst leaving you looking natural.
