Girl Crush: Leighton Meester

I’m not going to lie – the main reason I watch Gossip Girl every week is to check out Blair Waldorf’s hair and makeup. I can’t help it, y’all! It’s a sickness. (Although, last night’s prom look wasn’t my fave.) However, when I saw the above look on Leighton Meester at a recent event, I was instantly smitten. The rosy pink cheeks! The perfect lipcolor! SMITTEN, I TELL YOU.
The good news? I just found her makeup artist’s step-by-step info for this look at Luxaholics. The bad news? It seems the lip color and gloss he used is discontinued. Drat.
However, Who What Wear recently posted about Meester’s personal lipcolor faves:
When she’s not made-up for the cameras, Meester slicks on a combo of Lancome’s Star Gloss in Siren with MAC Pro’s Longwear Lipcolor, using Boss Brown as a base, with Slave to Pink as a glaze on top. Unfortunately for us (and Meester too!), most of her selections are technically out of stock, but don’t worry, we’ve got the perfect substitutes. First of all, you’ll want to pick up Lancome’s Color Fever Gloss ($25) in Hotness. Then feel free to adulterate it with the classic MAC Pro Longwear Lustre Lipcolor ($21) in Boss Brown (which used to be paired with Slave To Pink in a limited edition combo) and MAC Lustreglass ($14) in Love Nectar.
If you’ll excuse me, I’m off to buy these lipcolors ASAP as I seem to be having a Single White Female moment. Toodles!
