This week’s Celebrity focus is Blake Lively aka Serena Van der Woodsen of Gossip Girl. She has been a style icon as the ‘IT’ girl on the show with her glamorous dressing style. I’ve rarely seen her go wrong with her makeup – be it nude lips, bronzed sunkissed look or a deep rich red lip, she carries everything effortlessly!
Blake Lively experiments quite a bit with her lip colors and finishes, she can be seen with matte nude lips, glossy natural pinks as well as rich deep reds/berries. She is most often spotted with a glossy natural pink lip but on occasion, she sports a brilliant rich berry or matte red lip as well. She carries nude matte lips with equal ease!
She wears a signature eye most of the time- blackest black kohl and jet black mascara which gives a sharp defined black outline to her grey-blue eyes and the contrast looks gorgeous! I would love to know what mascara/falsies she wears, it looks dense and black without looking too unnatural.
I’ve not seen her experiment much with different colors when it comes to the eyes. She sports blue liner+kohl like in the image below which goes beautifully with her eye color. I’ve also notices a haze of champagne gold eye shadow in some of her looks. She always wears plenty of highlighter on the inner corners of her eyes which further contrasts with her black kohl/lashes, giving a very glamorous look.
Her skin is generally matte and if she uses a bit of highlighter, its probably a powder based one. Her skin has a gorgeous warmth to it, like she has just returned from a beach holiday! She is most often spotted with a peachy warm blush which goes beautifully with her skin tone. If its something I absolutely love about her look, its the way her blush is blended. It always goes a little deeper towards the nose giving it more of a natural rather than contoured look. The final effect is a very natural healthy flush that adds a lot of warmth to her face.
If I had to pick my favorite Blake Lively look – it would be the first one from the top, its a quintessential Serena Van Der Woodsen look – the peachy warm blush, natural glossy lips and sharp focus on the eyes with black kohl. jet black mascara and highlighted inner corners! My second favorite is the one I couldn’t find an image of but I took a still from the show which is shown below. She is wearing a rich purplish berry lip which look so lovely on her! The lip color reminds me of MAC Rebel lipstick. She has paired it with her signature eye makeup.
