In between jetting across the world for gigs, film premieres, and red carpets, supermodels don't exactly have a lot of downtime. All that travel and lack of sleep can wreak havoc on your skin (hello, airplane face), but apparently, this doesn't apply to Gigi Hadid, who arrived at the Ocean's 8 premiere last night without any foundation on. Consider us and our breakouts extremely jealous. But Hadid, as glowy-skinned and angelic as she is, is still a mortal and relies on something else for her flawless visage. Her makeup artist, Erin Parsons, wrote on her Instagram: "We literally used no foundation the past couple of days! Just concealer where needed, her skin is that good!" Her concealer of choice? Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer, a drugstore gem that's on sale right now for less than $7. Run, don't walk.

This cult concealer is a drugstore favorite, with almost 500 positive reviews on Target alone. The sponge-tipped applicator makes it easy to apply—just twist, dab, and blend it in with your fingers. Plus, the slightly luminous finish makes for a really flattering highlighter effect when you apply it above your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, and below your brow bone. "It's nice and creamy, blends in with basically no work, and I really like the packaging," one Target user writes. Apparently, Gigi isn't alone with skipping foundation in favor of this creamy concealer; another user writes, "I don't have great skin, so I'm pretty self-conscious without makeup. When I use this concealer, it blends so well and provides such natural coverage, I don't bother with any foundation.”
