Gigi Hadid – one of the world’s biggest supermodels and our forever beauty muse – turns 24 today, and we’re celebrating with a good ol’ fashioned hair and makeup homage.

Ever the chameleon when it comes to beauty, Hadid has seen many a transformation over her young, 24 years. Known as the blonde half of the Hadid sister act; Gigi has generally stuck to some variation of the flaxen shade, moving from bright platinum to pale sand, she’s remained true to her roots (for the most part). Length has chopped and changed over the years, but her signature is long, loose and tousled; part Victoria’s Secret angel, part model-off-duty (a role she’s perfected very, very well).

In terms of makeup, she’s always one for experimentation; moving from neon eyes to glitter lips, it seems beauty has no bounds for Gigi. It also helps when you’re the face of Maybelline, walk almost every fashion week runway and have had your own makeup range, Maybelline x Gigi Hadid.

Here, a celebration of the modern day super’s most iconic beauty moments. Maybe she’s born with it, maybe she’s Gigi Hadid; either way, happy birthday, Gigi.
