Beauty BFFs: How Kendall and Gigi Slayed the MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet
Like just about everyone else on planet Earth, we're a little bit in love with the power couple that is Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner (Kenji for short). The adorable besties gave us even more reason to obsess when they hit the MTV Movie Awards red carpet in two very different, but equally amazing looks.
Jenner was all about a bubble pony paired with nude makeup and glossy lips, while Hadid went for a faux fringe and the best neon smoky eye we've ever clapped eyes on. Our favourite? We can't decide.

Jenner's incredible bubble pony was created by Jen Atkin who shared a mini how-to on her Snapchat. Atkin prepped the hair with Kardashian Beauty's K-Body Volume Foam ($28) and Ouai's Wave Spray then blowdried everything smooth. Next she spritzed Ouai's Texturizing Hair Spray on dry hair, and secured each section with snagless bands. To finish, Atkin dusted Color Wow's Root Cover Up ($50) on roots for a fuller appearance, and flat ironed the ends.
Makeup artist Hrush Achemyan was responsible for Jenner's glowy look. For similarly glossy nude lips, try Nars' Lip Gloss ($41) in Instant Crush.
Hair-wise Hadid opted for faux bangs (maybe Jenner gave her some fringe tips?) and long lengths, as styled by Bryce Scarlett. While we don't have access to a step-by-step for this one, we do know that Uberliss' Hydrating Shampoo, Conditioner and straightening iron were involved. We'd suggest applying a smoothing balm like this one from Joico ($27), blowdrying, then flat ironing the ends for a similarly sleek look.
Makeup artist Sarah Nicole Tanno created a neon smoky eye for Hadid, which played nicely with the accents on her outfit: "We wanted to create a nod to Donatella Versace’s signature black-rimmed eye—but with a twist of neon yellow that makes it punkier," she said. We spied quite a few eye products on Tanno's Instagram, but for a novice-friendly version we recommend a cream formula like Maybelline's Color Tattoo Eye Shadow ($12) in Edgy Emerald.
