"That's just not who I am," she admitted. "I don't look that different."

"Not because I look bad," she said. "It’s just not who I am. My kids see me without makeup, my makeup artist sees me with no makeup, my house keepers see me without makeup on."

"They always say you look nice without makeup on and that I don’t look that different," she confessed.

And the secret to her famous look? It's actually to wear less make up and no foundation. That's right, less is more.

"I don’t do contouring or anything like that," she told Be. "I only wear powder, I don’t wear foundation, I don’t like it thick, it oxidizes and it looks dirty, I feel dirty, and I don’t really wear a lot of make up it's really the eyeshadow."

And what about the hair you ask? Well we spoke about that too. The trick Gina says, is to hair spray the roots for maximum volume.

"I don’t do that much hair spray," she added. "My hair is actually not stiff to touch, there’s quite a bit of movement in it."

"Then I put a straightening iron to it after I blow dry it, and then I just tease it from the crown in sections." ma

Well there you have it peeps. To get Gina's famous daring look, use a bright eyeshadow and compact powder, but say no to heavy liquid foundation and do not overdo the hair spray.
