Spotted! Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively, gracing the cover of Allure’s May 2009 issue with heavy smoky eyes in shades of gray and pink lips. Read on to learn how to copy Blake’s look below!


“We’re used to seeing Blake as the typical American girl, so I tried something more fierce,” explained makeup artist Stéphane Marais.

* A sheer foundation was blended onto Blake’s face and her cheeks, forehead and chin were highlighted with bronze shimmer.

* To play up her eyes, Marais rimmed them in black pencil and smudged the lines outward. He swept black metallic shadow across her lids and finished with a thick stripe of black liquid liner.

* Marais left Blake’s lips bare with just a dab of moisturizer to bring out their “natural cherry color”.
