'I was so into my horses I had no idea about makeup!' Bella Hadid reveals she didn't wear cosmetics until she was 18 - because she spent all her time riding rather than thinking about looks

Bella admitted that the only time she wears makeup is for work and when she's not working she's not wearing any makeup at all. 

She admitted, 'The most I put on is a little mascara which you know cant hurt anybody.' 

While she said that she doesn't go too crazy on herself with makeup, others make up for it and sometimes go overboard.

'I don't do anything too crazy on myself, but other people have really tried looks on me. I mean, they really go in,' she laughed.

In the video, Bella is sitting at a vanity with hardly any makeup on besides a creamy pale orange lipstick, a bit of eyeshadow and some mascara.

Pointing to her natural makeup she said to the camera, 'This is the most I'll go and if I go anywhere out of here then I feel really unlike myself.'

One thing Bella loves most about makeup is, 'Its ability to enhance your natural features. 

'Makeup 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.'

Aside from making you feel good about yourself, Bella shared that makeup also makes you feel confident.

'Obviously beauty does come from the inside out but that confidence also starts with how you feel when you walk out the door,' she admitted.

Bella also confessed that she never had a clue about makeup and had no idea what to do with it until she met Peter who she said taught her everything she knows about makeup, especially contouring and blending.

One of the best tips she learned from him: 'It's important to make sure everything is blended and nothing is stuck or clumpy.'

Laughing, Bella shared to the camera, 'Before modeling, I was so into my horses I had no idea about makeup and I didn't even know what contouring was. I didn't even own a concealer.'

Considering the supermodel always looks fresh-faced and glowing, she admitted she's not a fan of caking on the makeup to cover up.  

'I like to be as fresh as I can be, but I think good makeup really starts with a solid base,' she confessed.

Bella's number one tip for making sure makeup doesn't look cakey, 'You don't want to put too much on, just where you need it. I love skin to be glowing and blushing - healthy looking skin.

'If you start there, your makeup look can be pretty bomb, regardless.'

No clue about makeup: Bella also confessed that she never had any idea about makeup before modeling because she was too into her horses

Neutral look: The 21-year-old shared that she loves lip stains because if you put one coat on it's light enough that it 'doesn't look like you have too much on your face'

One thing Peter is always telling Bella to do is: 'Apply mascara from roots to tips. It'll make your mascara hold.

'If you put a lot of mascara on it really makes everything elongated from the inner corners to the outside.'

When it comes to lips, Bella is known for showing off her perfect pout in sultry snaps and Instagram photos, admitting: 'I'm very grab and go.'

'Perfect lips with liner are really beautiful but I love a stain because if you put one coat on it's super light and it doesn't look like you have too much on your face,' she said.

Her two favorite lip products that she is always wearing is the $34 Dior Addict Lip Glow and the Dior Lip Maximizer ($34).

As for Bella's favorite eye look and favorite makeup she's ever worn, she gushed, 'I always end up having a taupe-y, gold eye. 

'I love a cat-eye but my favorite makeup look I've ever worn was probably from the Fendi show with the blue hair.

'It was an elongated liner that really looked like a cat's eye and a little bit of highlighter in the center of the eyelid. 

'It was so cool. It was intense for sure but I'd always love to go back to that look,' she shared. 

She doesn't love every look she wears though and her least favorite was: 'Someone once put no makeup on my face and just a black line on the inside and I was horrified.' 

Explaining how working with Peter changed her life, Bella shared, 'When I turned 18 I started working with Dior so I really had to restart.

'I was so nervous to meet Peter Philips for the first time.

'It was on a French Vogue shoot with Mario Sorrenti and Peter painted my face with Picasso-inspired extreme makeup. 

'It ended up being so amazing. From then on we've just had such a great bond. I trust him with my face more than anybody in the world,' she concluded.
