Gossip Girl might’ve been off air for over three years now, but that’s not to say the cast aren’t still HUGE fashion and beauty icons in our lives. Serena gave us #hairgoals that’ll never go out of style, but for Blair, it’s her make-up that we can’t stop thinking about. And guess what? In honour of her 30th birthday, we’ve recreated her very best beauty looks. Take note…
The Everyday One We Can All Do
As much as we don’t want to admit it, sometimes Blair’s looks are a lil too OTT to rock up with on a daily basis, but we can all pull off this one. Start with a tinted moisturiser and set with a little bronzer and nude lippy. For eyes, take an eyeliner to the top and bottom waterline (avoiding a flick – Blair = classy not sassy) and widen with mascara and a little brown shadow.
Using wide barrel tongs, create large loose waves on a side parting and brush out for a relaxed look. Simple!
Girly Date Night
Probably the Blair look we’d associate with her most, this one’s all about femininity. Go for a sheer porcelain powder base, barely-there pink blush and a slick of pale pink gloss.
Frame your face with an inside-out french plait tied into a low bun and complete with a pretty pink floral clip on the side. Don’t forget your earrings!
The Preppy Debutante
Pair a creamy soft foundation base with a light pink blush. Add bright coral lips and minimal smokey eyeshadow for extra edge and finish with a slick of mascara. Tip: focus on the corners of your eyes to elongate and make them appear bigger.
Blair wouldn’t be Blair without a bouffant style ‘do. Here, it’s all about the half-up, half-up down style. Keep it in place with clean kirby grips.
As for the piece de resistance, add a pair of dangly earrings a la Blair. Ooh la la…
Et voilà! That’s all for now, Upper East Siders. XOXO Gossip Girl.
