The makeup at Dior’s fall 2017 show was barely there, but look closely and you’ll see the models were not without strategically applied morning-after mascara. Specifically, new Diorshow Pump’n’Volume, the brand’s first mascara from creative and image director for makeup, Peter Phillips. “This mascara is for the girl that loves make up. It makes you look as if you have false lashes,” Phillips explains. “It’s not for the girl that likes the natural look.” Housed in a squeezable tube, Pump’n’Volume uses the heat from your hands to warm the product, which keeps the formula from drying out prematurely.
Pump’n’Volume also marks Bella Hadid’s first campaign as the new face of Dior beauty. “We started working together 10 months ago with the web series and it just organically grew over time,” Hadid tells me at the Paris launch of Pump’n’Volume. “Dior is a brand I’ve loved for my whole life and once i actually got this campaign it was the most exciting news of my whole entire life. We shot the campaign a couple months ago and now that it’s out its just the most insane thing ever.” Here, I sat down with Hadid to learn all about her skincare secrets, sleep strategy, and who to follow on Instagram.
What’s the perfect club makeup look?
Tonight I have a liner on but usually I’m so natural. There’s girls like you that can rock a red lip and kill it (I can’t) so when I go out I would rather be natural so that nothing can smear, I can’t mess it up. If I have a taupe-y, golden situation then I’m good.
You’ve experimented with different hair colors for various campaigns; did people respond differently to you as a blonde?
People freaked out when I was blonde. I think it’s because I looked very similar to my sister. But I don’t know I think I’m going to keep the brown for a while.
Well I think that the brunette really suits you. Speaking of your sister, what’s the biggest sister fight you and Gigi ever had and how did you make up?
We’ve always had little bickering with each other growing up, but it’s never been anything serious. People piss you off but its always important to forgive and forget. Literally we’ll argue about something so silly then 20 minutes later I’ll say “I like your hair” and then she’ll laugh and we snap out of it.
What’s your least favorite part of modeling?
Probably the long work days; the 13 hour days are really tough. It’s a lot of makeup and changing so my skin looks really bad.
Your skin looks great right now though! Which products are you using?
Well I actually use the Dior Homme face wash and then the new Hydra Life moisturizer and masks; they’re so good.
I love them too, especially the clay mask. I’ve been using it this whole week in Paris. When you’re traveling do you like to sleep or read?
I try to sleep as much as possible. Fanny and I are obsessed with this meditation music now and I cant go to sleep without it.
What are you reading right now? Anything that you’re loving particularly?
Well I love all of Mirtha Michelle’s books. She’s one of our really incredibly talented friends and she has written a series of books just all about life and getting through things. I’ve been reading them for the last year. So many things about life experiences, traveling, and loving yourself.
I saw that you protested during the women’s rights march, what are your plans for international women’s day?
I’m still going to be in Paris, I’ll probably be with Fanny. We’ll definitely be celebrating. I love being a woman.
What’s your favorite Instagram account?
Probably Baller Alert (laughs).
Me too. I also love The Shade Room, what about you?
Literally Shade Room and Baller Alert are my two favorite Instagram accounts and they’re probably all that I look at on Instagram.
Do you look at the Industry On Blast too?
No! should I follow that?
Yes it’s like MediaTakeOut on Instagram. It’s so bad, but it’s so good.
