My friends are all obsessed with Gossip Girl (you know who you are!). Although I must admit I have never seen the show, I have always taken note of Blake Lively and her past looks at award shows. She rocks the red carpet for sure. Ahh, to be young and beautiful *sigh*
Even though I may not be able to rock a red carpet, I can at least attempt to replicate her Grecian glow. Her uber fabulous makeup artist Kristofer Buckle used Dior Beauty products to create a stunning "golden goddess" look for Gossip Girl star Blake Lively at the 2009 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles this evening.
In his own words:
"I used a lot of warm, honey colors on her skin and lips to make her green eyes pop," said Buckle. "Then I topped off the look with tons of DiorShow Blackout Mascara, which transformed her upper and lower lashes into expressive frames."
- Skin: DiorSkin Airflash Spray Foundation in #301, Dior Skinflash #3 aroundthe eyes.
- Eyes: DiorShow Blackout Mascara, Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow in Beige Messai #705
- Cheeks: DiorBronze Original Tan in Amber Tan #03*
- Lips: Dior Serum de Rouge Lipstick as a base with Dior Lip Polish in Radiance Expert on top.
Kristofer Buckles Tip:
"I used Dior Eye Show in Undressed Beige on Blake's cheekbones and shoulders to create an ethereal glow," said Buckle. "It's technically an eyeshadow but it works basically anywhere you want to reflect the light!"
