BLAKE LIVELY'S BEACH WAVES AND SUN-KISSED GLOW
Blake Lively isn't one to shy away from mini dresses, sparkles or unique adornments. For her recent red carpet appearance at the People's Choice Awards, the actress adopted a black, sparkly mini dress made up of flapper-esque tassels. She paired it with black lingerie underneath for a sultry yet tasteful look.
As for accessories, Blake complimented her ensemble with black geometric earrings, a black clutch and black strappy heels adorned with gold glitter.
Blake Lively is known for her gorgeous long, blonde locks. She is often spotted donning loose curls or the beach-y waves of our dreams. For her latest red carpet appearance, Blake adopted a look that was a cross between straight and wavy, making for gorgeous, natural-looking beachy texture.
To get this look, start off with damp, freshly washed hair. Towel dry it gently, then apply a beach spray like L'Oreal's Matt & Messy spray into your hair. Use your fingers to scrunch a few pieces throughout your head. Once your hair has dried, go over a few strands with a curling iron, making sure to grab large sections of hair at once, and leave space between strands on the iron. Use a brush to brush out the curls, then apply a volumizing hairspray to keep your look in place!
For her makeup look, Blake adopted her signature sun-kissed glow. She wore a rust coloured brown shadow on her hooded lids and underneath her lower lash line, then enhanced her cheeks, temples, jawline and nose with a bronzing blush. She completed her look with a touch of glossy pink lipstick.
To get this look, start off with a unified base. Once you've applied a foundation of your choice, enhance your cheekbones, nose, temples and jaw line with a bronzing blush or contour palette. Use a highlighting powder to accentuate the bridge of your nose and high points of your cheek bones. Move on to your eyelids by applying a rust coloured shadow onto your upper lids and lower lash line. Enhance your lashes with a volumizing mascara then apply a glossy pink lipstick onto your lips to complete the look!
