Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Blake Lively at 61st Primetime Emmy Awards


Blake Lively, aka Serena van der Woodson from Gossip Girl, showed up at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards tonight in a gorgeous red Versace dress and a “golden goddess” look created by celebrity makeup artist Kristofer Buckle.

How To Dupe Her Look

“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.” She also shared a 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!”
