Makeup Bag Check: Blake Lively
The Glam Squad: Celebrity makeup artist Kristofer Buckle for Dior Beauty and hairstylist Renato Campora for Frédéric Fekkai.
The Face: Buckle relied on a lot of warm honey colors to make Lively’s green eyes “pop,” including DiorBronze Original Tan in Amber Tan #03, Dior Serum de Rouge Lipstick as a base with Dior Addict Lip Polish in Radiance Expert on top, and Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow in Beige Messai #705. To get that ethereal, otherworldly glow on her cheekbones and shoulders, Buckle actually used Dior Eye Show in Undressed Beige. “It’s technically an eye shadow,” he says, “but it works basically anywhere you want to reflect the light!” Noted.
The Hair: Going for a “goddess-style updo” inspired by Lively’s red Versace gown, Campora prepped her hair with Fekkai Coiff Strong Hold Volume Mousse, then blew it dry, adding a touch of styling gel to keep it smooth. Then he teased all the hair and pulled it up into a high ponytail, added some extensions for drama, and braided the entire length for maximum over-the-shoulder-swinging-and-posing potential.
The Result: A capital W in the Lively vs. Meester Emmy showdown.
