The 5 Beauty Products Bella Hadid Swears By
Your looks get so much attention. Is it ever hard to deal with?
Yes. People think I'm so confident, but I wasn't confident at all until recently, and I'm still growing. I look in the mirror some mornings and feel completely insecure. For me, confidence is a work in progress. It's always hurtful to read negative comments on social media, but I'm learning not to take them personally.
When did you realize you wanted to model?
Probably after I moved to New York for college and signed with IMG. I did so many test shoots in random little apartments in Brooklyn, but it wasn't until my first real shoot that I became excited and realized I wanted to make a career out of modeling. I've always looked up to the '90s supermodels—Naomi, Cindy, and Linda. They're so badass. Most of my hair and makeup references for shoots come from them.
When you're off-duty, what kind of hair and makeup makes you most comfortable?
I like a taupey, goldish, light pink situation on my eyes, and a soft pink lip. I have really thin hair, so I'm self-conscious about wearing it down. When I do, I have extensions in. But normally I like to pull my hair off of my face into a super-sleek bun. People make fun of me because I pull my hair back so tight that it looks like I've had a face-lift.
