And make her eyes appear (even) bigger.

At the UK launch of Gigi Hadid's new make-up collection with Maybelline, as well as talking us through the collection, the supermodel shared some of the make-up secrets she swears by, such as her handy concealer lip tip.

Obviously Hadid is blessed with a lot of beautiful features to emphasise, but she revealed that the one feature she loves to play up is her eyes, and she has a few signature tricks she swears by.

1. Sunburnt Eyes

While most of us just apply blusher on our cheeks, Hadid likes to wear hers on her eyes because she claims it gives her a 'sunburnt effect' which, perhaps ironically, makes her eyes look 'healthier'.

She demonstrated this for us by blending the blusher from her Jetsetter palette in her crease, slightly above her eyeshadow.

2. Eye Contouring

As well as strategically placed blusher, Hadid also swears by eye contouring. This involves wearing a light skin-toned (or slightly lighter) colour all over the eyelid, and then using a slightly darker shade just above her crease.

She explained that by keeping her lid light and putting her crease colour slightly higher, this makes her eyes appear bigger.

3. Baby Wings

The last trick in Hadid's eye make-up arsenal is her trusty 'baby wings'.

Tiny flicks of eyeliner or shadow just on the outer corner of her lashes make it look like she's wearing falsies, without having to fiddle around with that messy glue.

Maybe Hadid should quit this modelling malarky and start giving make-up lessons.
