Blake Lively's Gossip Girl Glow...
Blake Lively has flawless skin and in order to achieve this radiant look you need to follow the following steps closely...
Start by applying a cream foundation with a foundation brush and blend well.
Apply a little bit of concealer on top of any remaining redness.
Then use an eye brightening pen on the outer corners of eyes and under eyes, blend well.
As a finishing touch, dust some translucent setting powder all over the face
When it comes to her cheeks, Blake incorporates a hint of subtle colour to add warmth to her skin.
I would do this by applying a basic blusher to the apples of the cheeks and lightly blend it along the natural line of the cheekbones.
The added shimmer will help add dimension to those with a matte skin.
The eyes are the most crucial part of the whole look and it is important to create a strong brow to help frame the face.
Blake's brows are filled in and defined with a pale brown/warm blonde shade. She has used these colours in order to prevent her eyes from looking too heavy.
For the eyelids, I would start by blending a skin tone eye shadow all over the lid.
Blending another light brown shadow ever so slightly in the creases.
After having done that you need to:
Line your upper and lower lashes with a creamy brown eyeliner pencil, not forgetting to apply some of the liner to the inner rim of your eye.
Top with two coats of black mascara.
*TIP* for a little touch of twinkle, take a liner brush and dot in along the "inner v" of your eyes with a silver or white iridescent eye shadow.
If you follow Blake’s make up trends, you will notice she almost always wears a bright pink or coral high-shine lip gloss to showcase her pearly whites. In order to keep your makeup looking fresh, keep reapplying your lip gloss throughout the evening.
So there we have it girls, the perfect glowing look to get heads turning this summer...
