Some BFFs get matching necklaces. Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner land matching major beauty contracts. Two months after Jenner, 19, signed on as the new face of Estée Lauder, Hadid, 19, announced her beauty contract with Maybelline New York.

The daughter of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster, who signed with IMG models back in 2011, has seen her career pick up rapidly within the past year, landing ad campaigns for Tom Ford eyewear, Victoria’s Secret Pink and Guess and hitting the runway for Chanel. But she saved her biggest announcement yet for her Instagram followers:

She also shared the big news with Vogue.com, saying she’d been wearing the brand’s SuperStay 24HR Concealer since before she was technically allowed to wear makeup.

Hadid’s first ads will be revealed in October, but in the meantime, look for the star to be sharing lots more like the Instagram below with her huge social media following.

Thoughts on her new gig?

I’m not sure what the fuss is all about. I don’t find her that attractive or anything that makes her unique. She looks like every other girl you see in California.

I could see her as their “eyes” model. Her eyes are stunning from the picture I saw of her in that burka. No offense to the wearers, but her eyes are her most outstanding feature. She’s pretty, but I’m not sure of her staying power.

Gotta agree with Cameron. She’s a pretty girl alright – but not seeing anything that sets her apart. Then again, she’s famous already – so what does my opinion matter? :-)

I’m sure her mother being a model and her dad being loaded helped her career.

She is practically perfect! What sets her apart is her eyes. She has the wholesome, California girl look with a bit of “foreign” mystery in her eyes. It’s subtle, but it’s there. She also has a perfect height and figure. I’m sure we’ll be seeing her for years to come.

She’s lovely! Congratulations

To Mary, yes, I’m sure having your mother for a model certainly helps. Her Mom has contacts I’m sure, and if her Dad is wealthy, that will help with the photography fees, etc., to get started…..but no one who is fugly, is going to get a Maybelline job. Sorry. You don’t see many overweight, moon faced women on covers. This girl is a natural beauty, no matter who her parents are!

So proud of My Love. When I was a supermodel I worked very hard for my money. No one knew me….but I knew me.

Later, I decided to marry rich. I then divorced rich. I became a single mom struggling with a mansion, nannies and Range Rovers.

I am so proud of my baby for doing this all on her own.

Oh good, 2 more spoiled hollywood brats who hit the parent lotto will now get rewarded for their family connections….why not go to mid America & find some fresh faced new girls who are a true representation of what 99% of this country really is & who actually buy their products…

They should removed all the moles with photoshop, ew.
