Gigi Hadid Reveals The Beauty Secret She Will Pass Onto Daughter Khai

Having a supermodel mom likely comes with its fair share of perks. One can imagine that the beauty secrets shared between mother and daughter will last a lifetime. Even though baby Khai is only 10 months old, her mom already has a few words of wisdom to share.

Speaking to Harper's Bazaar, Gigi Hadid shared what beauty techniques she learned from her mother and what she plans to pass on to the next generation. "There's a few that my mom taught me that I will for sure. My mom never really gave me advice on, like, what to do with my skincare or makeup, but I definitely watched her enough to learn," the 26-year-old explained.

Hadid's mother, Yolanda, worked as a model herself and brought her Dutch roots with her into the world of fashion. "She had a very simple, natural take on skincare. She didn't overdo it with product, and I feel like I've taken that on, where I think less is more," Hadid explained. "Doing too much for my skin or beauty routine can make it more complicated, and sometimes my skin can't handle it."

Her less-is-more approach stuck with her, and it's something that Khai will likely see as she grows up. "I think I'll teach Khai to keep it simple when it comes to makeup, like my mom taught me," Hadid added.

Gigi Hadid's beauty routine has simplified since becoming a mom

Teaching her daughter to "keep it simple" when it comes to makeup may be easier now that she's become a mother. "I've really simplified my routine to just the necessities of the necessities," she told Harper's Bazaar about motherhood. "I wake up in the morning, wash my face, moisturize, put on deodorant, and love to add a fragrance. But if I don't have time, I'm not going to wear makeup. My hair is always in a bun so it doesn't get pulled out."

Hadid has also kept her daughter's face private. In every Instagram photo she's shared, the baby faced away from the camera or something obstructed her face. As for the secrecy, Gigi's sister Bella explained her reasoning to Vogue, "I think she wants to be real online, but until her child wants to be in the spotlight and can make the decision herself, she doesn't want to put her in that position."

Elle explains that Gigi also had some help from her other famous friends — like Blake Lively — when deciding how to respect her daughter's privacy. "I have friends who are public figures and that's how they've gone about it, and I see their kids really blossom in a different way," she said in the interview.

One thing is for sure: baby Khai will share her face with the world if and when she's ready.
