Whether you like her or not you have to admit the Blake Lively does a really great job of rocking that effortless girl next door look and for my makeup today I drew inspiration from Blake to create a natural looking makeup look. I hope that you enjoy this post.
On My Eyes:
MUA Heaven and Earth Palette:
I really love this palette and I thought it would be perfect to use for my eye makeup. I used a champage colour for my eyelids and inner corners mixed with a small amount of a light brown for a natural look then used a darker brown on the outer corners and in my crease to define my eyes.
Mememe Sleek and Chic Lengthening Mascara:
I used this mascara to lengthen my lashes to make my eyes look wider. I’m not a huge fan of this mascara as it does clump my lashes together but I’ve been trialling it recently so thought I’d give it a go.
Sleek Brow Kit in Dark:
Seeing as Blake has blonde hair I didn’t want to do my eyebrows really dark so I just filled them in using the light brown setting powder from my Sleek Brow Kit.
Natural Collection Lash Care Mascara:
To set my brows into place I used my Natural Collection Lash Care Mascara a clear mascara which works really well as a clear eyebrow gel.
On My Face:
The Body Shop Oil Balancing Foundation in 01:
Although I love primers I’m not going anywhere today so I applied this foundation directly to my face and I found that it actually looked a lot nicer. Although this hasn’t translated well on camera this foundation is a little dark for me but I used it to warm up my face.
Astor Deluxe Safari Bronzer in 002 Safari Fever:
I didn’t want to do a heavy contour but I did want to warm up my face so I used my Astor Deluxe Safari Bronzer in 002 Safari Fever and my Real Techniques Contour Brush and dusted a small amount of bronzer under my cheekbones to warm up my face a little.
Sleek Blush in Rose Gold:
Blake doesn’t seem to go overboard with the highlighter and powder so I didn’t use them and simply dusted some of my Sleek Blusher in Rose Gold across the apples of my cheeks to warm up my face and add a healthy glow.
On My Lips:
Revlon Lipgloss in Bellini:
I wanted a natural nude colour on my lips because Blake goes quite natural with her makeup so I chose to use my Revlon Lip Gloss in Bellini. This is a nice milky, nude colour but I found that it is quite sticky and the colour isn’t opaque enough for my lips.
