Gigi Hadid 's perfectly pouty lips aren't all thanks to genetics. She's a pro at enhancing her kisser with lipstick, too, from the shade she uses down to how she applies it.
In a makeup tutorial she made with Maybelline, the supermodel shares the reverse way she uses a lip kit. Because while we were all taught to go in with a lip liner first, she does the exact opposite. See proof below!
That's right, the model lines her lips after she colors them in. Although she didn't necessarily mention why, we can definitely tell that doing so helps define the shape of her lips more. This trick isn't exclusive to nude lipstick either, because Gigi also does the same thing with bright reds!
When I tried it myself, the lip liner definitely concealed the crooked lines my unsteady hands created with my lipstick. It also made my lip line look more polished and clean as if I touched it up with concealer!
That said, this technique is only convenient if your lip liner and lipstick are almost the same shade. A contrast too stark will give you serious '90s lip vibes (unless that's what you were going for!). Good thing the shades in Gigi's Maybelline collection are matching!
