Blake Lively Does Vogue

We already mentioned that Blair Waldorf (a.k.a. Leighton Meester) graced the February cover of Teen Vogue. In typical Gossip Girl fashion, Serena van der Woodsen (a.k.a. Blake Lively) one-ups Blair by plastering her mug on the February issue of Vogue magazine.

Blake is rocking the whole old-Hollywood glam with a fresh, youthful twist. Black lined eyes, vixen red lips, defined brows and voluptuous hair. If Blake is channeling Veronica Lake, than Leighton was channeling Mickey Mouse (sorry!).

To recreate this look:

Try lining the eyes with a liquid liner--top and bottom. I like MAC's fluidline in Blacktrack. You'll need a brush to use the liner but you'll also be able to control the thickness. Use a volumizing mascara (this look is all about the liner and lashes!). Try Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes. You'll want to create full brows, so use a powder to fill in those thin patches. Try Elke Von Freudenberg's Nite Brow Shadows and her Hi-Lite Shadow on the brow bone for a more defined arch. For lips, use a red lippy with an orange undertone. I heart MAC's Russian Red! Lastly, use a red wash on the apples of your cheeks (Stila's convertible color in Poppy offers the perfect red hue).
