"I really base my make-up on the outfit, and the mood of what I'm doing," she told Vogue. Blake confessed that although she has done her own make-up ahead of events before, she prefers to turn to the professionals.

"I've done my own hair and make-up for the red carpet before but either it's because it's for a last-minute event, or because I forgot to call someone… it's never a good idea!" she quipped. "But I do get very involved in the hair and make-up I wear because, I mean, it's my face! I work with people that are such great artists that if I think I have an idea about something we can spitball and make it better."
