Spotted! Leighton Meester with some Giorgio Armani A/W 2009 inspired purple eyeshadow and vampy red lips at the American Eagles Outfitters grand opening celebration. Do we like the more madeup Miss Waldorf or prefer her au naturel? Spill your thoughts!

  1. Omg. The second photo is just scary. : /

  2. definitely her natural look. the makeup’s too much on her, i don’t like it at all!

  3. Natural! The red lip+eyes are way too much!

  4. natural for sure. The heavy makeup almost makes her look the the female Joker.

  5. Yvette took the words right out of my mouth…

  6. Picture A with her flushed cheeks and neutral lips because she looks fresh and youthful. The loud eyes and loud lips don’t compliment each other.

  7. i love leighton’s makeup-dramatic or natural…however this look doesn’t do it for me…there is just too much e/s under her eyes. but i still like the fact she’s not afraid to try bold looks!

  8. The second looks like halloween makeup…

  9. natural! she looks older than she really is on the 2nd photo!

  10. Ew. She looks like she’s on drugs lol

  11. I don’t think it’s the problem of 80s makeup… it’s more of a problem of execution! There’s way too much going on on her very fair skin and the eyes are messily done…

  12. her red lips are gorgeous but the eye makeup is too much

  13. I like how shes more adventurous with her makeup in pic 2 because she always looks the same but lose the red lips and its *almost wearable.

  14. The look is too over the top.

  15. agree with everything stated above. she definitely looks better au naturel.

  16. That’s a big NAY! She looks like she’s been punched in the face =\
    The natural look looks better on her

  17. I think she looks great in both looks! but she looks best the way she does in gossip girl… which is somewhere in the middle of these two…

  18. so much better with the natural look O_O
    i’m not sure if the purple eyeshadow & red lip stick go that well together….

  19. She should never go back to that person who did her makeup. The eyeshadow is just gross.

  20. she is someone so beautiful naturally that i think all that makeup actually takes away from her. i think perhaps she is the type that can’t handle too much makeup before it looks very bad. also, she is a lot more youthful without the dark colors.

  21. I think the red lip colour is FABULOUS on her though.

  22. Natural! It would be okay if she just had the red lips Or purple eyeshadow but it’s just too much together.

  23. I definitely like her natural look better! I always believed in either dark eyes or dark lips but never both!

  24. wow i love the red lips and the hair, but they would have gone better with natural eyes! It is all too much for just one face.

  25. I love her natural look..
    Her other look is a bit too intense with the two colours.
    But she did look nice in her vid, Somebody To Love.

  26. I think if she went with a less intense purple like in the Giorgio Armani A/W 2009, it would have looked better.

  27. She looks gross in the second one.

  28. The combination of red lips and flashy eyeshadow in the second pic is just too much. Although I like colorful shadows myself, I say natural is still the best.

  29. the red lips look better on her than the natural glossed ones..
    but the purple eyeshadow makes her look like a kid’s been messing around with someone’s make-up box…

    i’d still say the red lips one!
