The 21-year-old beauty is currently one of the world's most photographed women, but Bella Hadidi has revealed she never paid much attention to make-up until she became a catwalk star, insisting she instead spent most of her time focusing her attention on horse riding. She said: "Before modelling, I was so into my horses I had no idea about make-up and I didn't even know what contouring was. I didn't even own a concealer."
These days, Hadid acknowledges she relies on make-up to "enhance" her natural features. She also admitted to feeling more self-confident when she's happy with her appearance.
The American star told Into The Gloss: "Make-up can make you feel so much better and make you feel the most beautiful that you can feel -
it's always a one-up for me."
Although Hadid subscribes to the idea that beauty comes from the inside, she also believes self-confidence to be an attractive character trait. She said: "Obviously beauty does come from the inside out but that confidence also starts with how you feel when you walk out the door." Meanwhile, Yolanda Hadid revealed earlier this year the role she played in helping other daughter, 22-year-old Gigi Hadid, to the top
of the modelling industry.
The 54-year-old star - who is a former model herself - said: "Gigi always wanted to be a model so I groomed her in a playful way, dressed them up and did little campaigns with them. But I always said, that you can't model until you're 18.
"Gigi would fight with me over it and tell me that there were loads of 16-year-olds modelling and I would tell her, 'well that's too bad.' I've been there and I know what goes on. Now she's older, she thanks me for giving her the opportunity to be a kid - to run around the farm make-up-free for longer."
