Beauty Copycat - Blake Lively


Make-up maestro Helen Dowsley, Priceline's Head Make-up Artist, shares her insider tips so we can all recreate celebrity beauty looks at home. Hurrah!

Blake is the ultimate 'It Girl' and it's not hard to see why the blonde beauty is so frequently photographed. This look is good for when you want to make an impact without using too much colour as it's all about lashes!

Step 1: Prep the face to remove any existing makeup and create a clean base using a cleanser, toner and moisturiser.

Step 2: Apply primer to prep the skin followed by a mineral makeup, applied using a kabuki brush, to even the skin tone.

Step 3: Sweep a soft gold eye shadow over the eyelid from the lashes to over the brow bone. Gently sweep a small amount of the same colour underneath the eye, ensuring you stay close the lashes.

Step 4: Curl lashes and apply two coats of black mascara.

Step 5: Using tweezers place a full strip of false lashes on each eyelid, keeping it them as close to the lash line as possible.

Step 6: Apply black liquid eyeliner along the top lash only.

Step 7: Define the brows using an eyebrow pencil. Apply the pencil with feathery strokes through the brow to fill any gaps and blend any harsh lines with a brow brush.

Step 8: Using a natural lipstick, mix a touch of lose powder and apply to lips, this will keep the lipstick looking fresh all night without having to re-touch too often.

Step 9: Blow dry hair, toss into side pony and work in a couple of loose fishbone plaits.

Expert Tip: When applying false lashes, you want to get them right on top of your natural lashes. Start by holding the false lashes with tweezers and resting them on the natural lashes. Slowly slide them down the natural hairs until they reach the skin just at the root of the lashes and gently press to stick them in place.
