Yesterday, Leighton Meester (a.k.a. Blair Waldorf from the show Gossip Girl) made an appearance on TRL looking totally cute and put together. Just over a year ago, we saw Rachel Bilson on TRL looking undeniably similar. The hair, the makeup, the black and white outfits... C'mon, are these two long-lost twins?
For product suggestions and step-by-step instructions on how to get their sweet and sassy polished makeup look,
- Step 1: Face With complexions like theirs, all you really need is something to even out the skin and create a semi-matte canvas. I recommend a light mineral foundation like Bare Escentuals bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation in Light. Using a big fluffy brush, dust the powder all over your face right on top of your concealer. Concentrate on any red areas under your eyes or around your nose as well as on your t-zone.
- Step 2: Cheeks For this look, a little bit of blush will go a long way. By using something like a cheek stamp, you can get high-impact results. Try Philosophy the Supernatural Airbrush Blush in Pink. Start at the apples of your cheeks and blend upwards along your cheekbones only. Finish with a touch of highlighter for that dewy effect.
- Step 3: Eyes Stick mostly with neutrals and pinks for this daytime sultry eye. Shades such as Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Bellissima mixed with a little bit of Nars Single Eye Shadow in Nepal (a rose color) swept right about your lid or right under your brow bone will really warm up brown eyes. Finish with black liner and a dark brown mascara like La Bella Donna Earth Mineral Mascara.
- Step 4: Lips Apply a generous amount of Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Reflect Lip Gloss in Organza Pink for lots of shimmer and shine. No liner or lipstick is necessary—gloss is all you need. Just look at those sexy pouts!
