“I think that people are so fast to do permanent things to their face.”
Gigi Hadid went live on Instagram with Maybelline’s Global Makeup Artist Erin Parsons this afternoon to walk through a natural, Zoom-friendly makeup look. Hadid spoke candidly on the Live about her beauty routine, plastic surgery rumors, and how her face has changed since the start of her pregnancy. The model is expecting her first child with Zayn Malik in the fall.
“People think I do fillers on my face and that’s why my face is round,” Hadid said while penciling in her brows. “I have had cheeks since I was born. Especially fashion month— when I was already a few months preggo, you know?”
Parsons chimed in that she was wondering how Hadid’s face would change now that she’s nearly six months pregnant. “I have the cheeks already so there’s not a lot to fill in,” the model quipped.
Hadid then shut down any rumors about plastic surgery. “For those wondering I have never put or injected anything into my face. I am so happy for everyone to do whatever they want that makes them happy and makes them feel more comfortable and good about themselves. Me personally, it terrifies me,” she said. “I feel like am too much of a control freak. I’m like, what if it goes wrong?”

For Hadid, makeup is a tool she uses to enhance her natural features. “I think that people are so fast to do permanent things to their face. I’ve loved being like, I accept myself for how it is. It doesn’t mean I don’t have insecurities sometimes, but for special occasions you can sculpt your nose a little bit or do whatever with makeup,” she said. “Makeup is such a beautiful tool to help you feel your best for special moments but also to accept your beautiful face for exactly how God made it…and your mama and dada.”
To sculpt her cheeks and nose, Hadid used the Maybelline City Bronzer in shade 100 during the tutorial. “I do have a round face so it just helps like, hone the warmness into the center so the center is highlighted. I lightly go under my chin also because I have a round face,” she added.
