Gigi Hadid is, well, Gigi Hadid. Our point: Whether she's wearing opaque noir lipstick or glittering sunset-hued crystals beneath her eyes, Gigi Hadid's makeup never looks anything short of impeccable. And despite the fact that, relatively speaking, she hasn't been in the industry all that long, she's still managed to wow us with makeup look after makeup look—each, quite impossibly, better than the last. (Hey, we never said life was fair.)

We know this is only the beginning, but we thought we'd satisfy our beauty sweet tooth with an in-depth glimpse into the model's most sensational moments—so far.

Golden Eyes

Gigi Hadid - Golden Birthday

For her golden birthday (23), Gigi Hadid celebrated with an over-the-top gilded beauty look we want to re-create ASAP. According to her makeup artist, Erin Parsons, Hadid's look was actually incredibly affordable and a strategically applied mix of Maybelline ExpertWear Monos Eyeshadow in 90s Gold School ($4) and "cheap" gold craft-store glitter.

Wearable? Maybe not. But that doesn't mean we can't admire the fact that Gigi Hadid made black lips and opaquely white roots look chic during F/W 16 Fashion Week.

Bedecked with shimmering russet- and maroon-hued lids, the model attended the 2016 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition launch.

Gigi Hadid's known for glowing skin, sun-kissed tresses, and naturally flushed cheeks and lips. Getting a tad edgier, the model kept her complexion luminous but amplified her lips with a moody, cool-toned shade of brick.

Here she brought the glamour with a clean, perfectly slicked-back hairstyle, Bordeaux-stained lips, defined brows, and her signature glowing skin.

Crimson Eyes

For the Anna Sui S/S 17 fashion show, Hadid wore an electric shade of crimson around the rims of her eyes and atop an ultra-glossed pout.

Dramatic Cat Eye

A sweep of eye-catching liner (that cat eye… we're drooling) and a sprinkling of chunky silver glitter brought Gigi Hadid's makeup to life at the S/S 17 Fendi show of Milan Fashion Week.

Matte Red Lip

Usually we see the model gravitate toward nudes and pinks when it comes to her red carpet looks, but for the 2016 American Music Awards, she made us do a double-take with a matte, true-red lip; a twinkling smoky eye; and strategic hints of highlighter in the inner corners of her eye, down the bridge of her nose and above the Cupid's bow.

Bold Liner

At the Tom Ford show, it was all about the cropped hair, chunky and bold liner, and perfectly plush, light pink pout. We love how the streak of noir along the lids (and that crop!) keeps the look from looking too precious.

All-Over Glow

For the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, the model went with a pinky-nude lip, gilded copper lids, slightly winged liner, and camera-catching application of highlighter along her cheekbones.

Nude Lips

A few coats of mascara, dewy skin, and a pristine nude lip made Gigi Hadid's makeup look pop at the 2016 British Fashion Awards.

Faux Lashes

For the F/W Jeremy Scott New York Fashion Week show, ultra-long falsies along the lower lashline complemented loose, low-maintenance waves.

Graphic Liner

At first glance, the makeup Gigi Hadid wore during the F/W 17 Moschino show looks wonderfully retro. But at closer glance, you'll notice a brief swipe of nude graphic liner and obviously lined lips—so fresh.

A little (or should we say a lot?) of sparkle was the name of the game at Jeremy Scott's fashion show. The look: a seemingly bare face accented with three strategically placed crystals under each of the model's eyes. Oh, and glitter- and polished-dipped nails, of course.

Dewy Skin

During New York Fashion Week, Gigi Hadid walked the Prabal Gurung show with wet, slicked-back hair, dewy skin, and subtly rouged lips for just a hint of color—minimalism at its finest.

Glittery Liner

One of our favorite makeup looks from New York Fashion Week, Gigi Hadid strutted down the Anna Sui runway with a vertical—glittering—liner job for an incandescent and completely ethereal look. Undulating waves and underdone makeup played supporting roles.

Statement Liner

In an updated take on '80s glamour for the Fendi Milan Fashion Week show, models sported statement-making liner and petrol-toned hair (in every shade from blue à la Gigi to hues of teal and purple).

Minimal Makeup

Gigi Hadid is one of those blessed beings who looks just as beautiful sans the liner, lipstick, and shadow. For instance, at Bottega Veneta, the makeup was minimal with barely-there pops of coral on the lids, cheeks, and lips.

It's really all about the hair here, but we still can't stop staring at the demure hints of blush along Gigi Hadid's lids, plus her perfectly plump pout.

Her Go-To Look

When we think of Gigi Hadid's go-to makeup look, this is what we picture: nude lips, glowing skin, and a subtle—albeit sultry—eye look with a hint of winged eyeliner, mascara, and matte shadow. A toss of classic curls makes the look even more outstanding.
