I saw this absolutely ridiculous photo of Blake Lively from last night’s LA premiere of Savages and nearly passed out. Utter perfection. Blake is wearing a stunning Zuhair Murad dress that she, not having a stylist, probably selected on her own. The dress is from the Couture “Casino Fever” Spring Summer 2012 collection, which I love, but even more…can you believe her hair and makeup? She is just stunning. I did a little search to see if I could find the “get the look” from her makeup artist and/or hairstylist but no dice. Here’s my take on how you can get the look:
Hair: For this style, you need volume. I recently attended a Dove and Dailycandy.com event at DryBar and the stylist used Dove’s Style+Care Nourishing Amplifier Mousse and I was totally impressed. Once hair is blown out and dry, use a 1-inch curling iron around your hair and brush out the curls for this old Hollywood glam look.
Skin: Blake definitely has a bronze goddess glow happening. Apply your regular foundation and then use a summery bronzer to highlight the apples of your cheeks, nose and forehead. I like Stila One Step Makeup Primecolor in “Bronze Babe” since it allows you to play with the countouring a bit and also serves as a primer, cheek color and eyeshadow.
Eyes: Keep eyes minimal, as it’s really all about the lip (see below). Try a simple black eyeliner like Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in “Perversion,” a personal favorite, and, of course, some false eyelashes. I’m loving Makeup Forever’s eyelash strips since they’re easy to get on. Then top it off with a dramatic black mascara like Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes, which I’m also currently loving.
Nails: Blake is sporting a pretty serious red and Essie’s “Well Red” would definitely foot that bill.
