I had the pleasure of meeting Cindy Crawford many years ago at a photographer’s book launch featuring many photos of her and other top models, and truth be told, while she’s perfection on paper, in person she’s other-worldly! Well, clearly the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. When it comes to inheriting great DNA in the good looks department, the Crawford-Gerber family has got it in spades.
Kaia Gerber is the spitting image of her mother and is off to a stratospheric start in the modeling world where she was just named the 2016 Breakthrough Female Model of the Year at the 2016 Daily Front Row Fashion Media Awards and was also just named as the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty. If you take one look at her it’s easy to see why.
At the event, top tier makeup artist Hung Vanngo, who has worked on everyone from Gisele Bundchen to Rose Byrne to Julianne Moore, played up Gerber’s natural good looks with a smoky eye/nude lip combo on her using marc jacobs beauty products. Some standout ones worth noting are:

Apply one pump evenly over skin before applying your foundation to perfect the look of your skin and have your makeup stay put.
marc jacobs beauty remedy concealer pen ($39) is the magic wand you’ll covet whether your complexion woes are due to aging, fatigue or dehydration.
