All about Blake Lively’s makeup
1. The Casual Look
Blake has mixed sexy smoky eyes with pink lips for a sexy summer contrast. The new mother opted for a gorgeous burgundy Gucci dress at the Grace of Monaco premiere in Cannes and completed her look with a high ponytail. Did the end work out? A casual yet stunning look!
Cleanse your face with an extremely mild and lightweight Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil.
Once done, pair your skin with Benefit The POREfessional Primer oil-free formula to hide blemishes and for a long-lasting result.
Now, contour your face with L’Oréal Glam Bronze Duo 101 Blonde Harmony bronzer. Start applying from the hollows of the cheeks towards the temples.
To maintain that healthy glow, sprinkle in a soft pink blush wash like Maybelline Mineral Power Naturally Luminous Blush in Gentle Pink. This is the most natural and creates a beautiful, silky blush.
Blake enhanced her gorgeous eyes by opting for lighter berry tone eyeshadow. We prefer this creamy and rich Colour Riche Quads Disco Smoking eyeshadow from L’Oreal. She further extended her eyes’ shape by lining her lash line and waterline with L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Black. For a stunning look, complete your eye makeup by lengthening your lashes. Apply two coats of Lancôme Définicils High Definition mascara. The brush’s extra long bristles can save your time from curling too.
Frown and complete the casual look with a light pink lip color, like the bright pink of Nars’Pago Pago.
2. The Neutral Office Look
Blake Lively wears her tanned skin, blush tones, and bright nude pinks for the sexiest look in the office. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pantsactress contrasted her dull skin with a low-cut gray tank top and a glitzy Burberry skirt and completed her striking look with wavy hair and Christian Louboutin heels.
Start your routine with an all-natural, soothing cleanser. You can use Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser.
Now apply a pore-minimizing primer like Benefit The POREfessional face Primer followed by a subtle highlighter contour to hide blemishes and contour your perfect face.
Next, apply a matte finish foundation like Stila’s Natural Finish Oil-Free Makeup and blend it to match your skin tone.
Once done, apply a pink blush wash to the apples of your cheeks; We prefer Milani Baked Blush to deliver a rosy glow like Blake did.
For Blake’s natural eyes, apply a light champagne eyeshadow to the eyelids, CoverGirl Eye Enhancers in Champagne.
Follow this by defining and curling your lashes with Benefit They’re Real! Mascara.
Apply a natural-toned shade like Colour Riche Extraordinaire In Rose Melody to complete the look.
3. The Date Night Look
Go for classic Hollywood glamor a la Blake Lively, who blazed up at the Savages premiere in a curvy-fitting Zuhair Murad gown. The Gossip Girl actress wore a classic long black hand-embroidered dress with a nude tulle design to channel her look.
For that head-turning complexion, start by cleansing your face with a mild, light cleanser, CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser.
Once done, apply a primer, such as Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer to hide imperfections and bring luminosity to the skin.
Now apply an extended wear foundation such as Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer + Spf and blend it from the middle of your face to match your skin tone.
Remember that the real trick to looking fresh and maintaining that healthy glow lies in a good blush. Therefore, apply a gentle color wash to the apples of your cheeks; we recommend M.A.C. Cremeblend Blush and create a healthy blush.

Apply for L’Oréal’s Infallible Eyeshadow 02 Hourglass Beige eyeshadow at the base of the lids.
