Do you ever stare at your drugstore makeup collection and marvel at the fact that Gigi Hadid wears some of the same products that cost us $7.99 at Walgreens? In case you didn’t know, this is, in fact, a thing that happens on the red carpet. Celebrity makeup artists like Erin Parsons bring our drugstore makeup dreams to life, putting together the ultimate look for the occasion and one that will be sure to leave social media stalkers like us screaming.
For last night’s red carpet, Parsons gave Hadid a natural, glowy makeup look paired with a bold red lip, using solely drugstore makeup products from Maybelline New York. Not only did Hadid wear the same concealer that me, my mom and co-workers adore, but she also rocked the Best Long Lasting Lippie Of All Time: Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick. If you don’t believe us, consider Gigi’s adoption of the liquid lipstick as proof that you need it in your beauty stash right now.
