Leighton Meester's Low-Maintenance Beauty

Leighton Meester Is a Low-Maintenance Beauty


We're happy to present this article by one of our favorite sites, Daily Makeover!

Leighton Meester insists she is quite low-maintenance when it comes to her beauty regimen.

The Gossip Girl actress says she is laid back about her look and prefers not wearing a lot of makeup because she has to wear so much for work.

To find out more about Leighton's beauty habits, just keep reading.

She said, "I get serious makeup every day; it's like playing dress-up! But it takes its toll because you're being touched constantly. If I'm not working I'll wear a tinted moisturizer. When it comes to my hair, I'm wash and go! When I want to look like I've made an effort I leave it down. When it's up, people think you don't want to show it off! It's a good trick."

While she is quite low-maintenance now with her beauty regime, Leighton admits she used to have self-confidence issues so would wear a lot of makeup to compensate for it.

The 24-year-old beauty told Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine, "I didn't see myself as pretty when I was 18, so I went too far with my makeup. I look back and wish I'd thought I was pretty. I wouldn't have worn so much."
