Get the Look: Blake Lively Met Ball 2014 Makeup Look

The Met Ball took place last week and many celebrities pulled out their fancy dresses and had hair and makeup that you wouldn't see on them everyday. One person that stood out was Blake Lively, who was not only wearing a gorgeous, elegant dress, but also had mermaid waves and gorgeous simple makeup. I also took notice to her look because I have recently started watching Gossip Girl and am already on the second season! Read on to see how to get her look at the Met Ball!

  • Foundation: To get Blake Lively's flawless skin, apply your favorite foundation evenly on your skin, blending well for a natural finish.
  • Matte Bronzer: Apply lightly to contour the hollows of your cheekbones, jawline, and temples. If want to further contour, apply a little on the sides of your nose lightly with a fluffy eyeshadow blending brush.
  • Matte Rosy-Pink Blush: Apply lightly to the apples of your cheeks up to the side of your face, towards your ears.
  • Powder Illuminater: Since most of the face makeup is matte, apply a illuminater to the tops of your cheekbones to brighten your complexion and to highlight.

  • Light-Champagne Shimmery Eyeshadow: Blake Lively always wears a bright inner highlight shade, and the Met Ball was no exception. Apply a light shimmery eyeshadow to your inner corner and all across your lid up to your crease. (The one shown is MAC's "Nylon" eyeshadow).
  • Deep Plum Eyeshadow: The eyeshadow shown (NARS Subra Dual Intensity Eyeshadow) was the actual shade that Blake Lively was wearing. Using a fluffy brush, apply this shadow to the outer third of your lid and a little in the crease and blend well. Next, using a thin eyeliner brush, apply the shadow to the outer third of your bottom lash line.
  • Dark Brown/Gray Gel Eyeliner: Apply a thin line your upper lash line and before the liner dries, such the liner slightly so that the line is as harsh.
  • Black Mascara: Apply a few coats of a defining and lengthening mascara to your upper lashes and one coat to your bottom lashes.
