With her new movie, Savages, premiering this Friday, Blake Lively has been stealing the spotlight, wearing standout beauty trends. See our favourite looks from the blonde bombshell’s recent red-carpet run.
THE HALF-MOON MANI: At the L.A. premiere of Savages, Lively sported the matchy lip trend by colour-coordinating her lips to her tips. To switch up classic red nails, Blake sported a half-moon mani, leaving the base of her nails colour-free. Beauty Tip: Achieve a clean half-moon mani at home by using a paper reinforcement to block off the base of your nail and create a perfect crescent.
FLARE pick: Quo by ORLY Nail Polish in Wine and Dine, $10, shoppersdrugmart.ca.
FISHTAIL PLAIT: Lively attended the New York premiere of Savages, rocking a high pony fishtail braid. We love how she brought the casual hairstyle to the red carpet by keeping the front super sleek and adding a sparkly ponytail holder at the crown of her head. Beauty Tip: To prevent flyaways from slipping out of your fishtail, tie strands in a pony and smooth the tail with a styling cream prior to braiding.
FLARE pick: Dove Style+Care Frizz-Proof Cream-Serum, $5, dove.ca.
SHIMMER STAR: The Gossip Girl star appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman on June 26 looking radiant with white shimmery shadow on the inner corners of her eyes. The subtle sparkle made a perfect match for her embellished neckline and ivory dress. Beauty Tip: Accentuate eyes by highlighting three areas with a light shimmery shadow: your brow bone and inner and outer corners. Finish off with a light coat of mascara and you’ll look instantly refreshed.
FLARE pick: Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Zephyr, $22, sephora.com.
