Get the look: Blake Lively

Celebrity makeup artist Alice Theobald shows how to recreate the beautiful blonde's flawless look

She may play one of New York's elite in hit TV show Gossip GIrl, but Blake Lively channelled pure Californian chic at the Teen Choice Awards back in August.

Her blonde, semi-swept back locks perfectly complemented her totally flawless, sun-kissed make-up.


Here, make-up artist to the stars Alice Theobald shows us how to recreate Blake's beautiful, fresh-faced look.

"Firstly," says Alice,  "cleanse and gently exfoliate your face for a fresh base.

"If you're not blessed with naturally tanned skin I recommend applying Sienna X self-tan for Blake's golden, California girl glow.

"Banish any blemishes or eye circles with Illamasqa Concealer. Apply your foundation, using Guerlain Lingerie Depeau compact with the right shade to suit your skin tone.

"Powder the face with Laura Mercier Brightening Powder using a large, loose brush.

"To define your cheekbones a la Blake, use Nars Angelika blusher in circular motions.

"Next up, the eyes. Use Shisheido Voyage palette and apply from the lash to the socket line and blend.

"Then using the Cinique eyeshadow brush apply Chantetaille Shell just under the browbone and in the corner of the eye.

"For some smoky definition, use Givenchy No.8 palette, blending around the lashline.

"To get those big, fluttery eyelashes, we recommend Chantetaille Auxcil on the top and bottom lashes. 

"And for Blake's big, full lips, use Mac More to Love lipliner on the natural lip line. 

"Apply Chelsea Girl by Nars lip gloss all over lips, blending into the lip liner. Make sure to avoid harsh lines."
