How to Do Your Hair and Makeup Like Leighton Meester

Leighton Meester has an olive complexion that a lot of women would love to have. With her shining locks, dewy skin, and bronze makeup, the actress is proof that warm-toned makeup is hot for summer. Here, Leighton plays up the coppery tones in her hair with similar shades in her eye, cheek, and lip makeup. Find out how you can use warm hues to emulate her recent red-carpet look.

To get Leighton’s eye look, begin by prepping the lids with primer to ensure that your shadow will withstand the hottest of temperatures. Next, use an eye shadow brush to lightly pat shimmering, coppery-gold shadow onto the eyelids, all the way from the lash line to the crease. Select a soft, matte brown shadow and blend it along the outer corner of the eye, and up into the crease. Use a thinner brush to line both the top and bottom lash lines with the same brown shadow. Apply two coats of curling mascara to give your lashes some lift.

Capture Leighton’s smooth, even skin with a little help from a dewy-finish primer and a full-cover, natural-finish foundation. Apply using your fingertips or a foundation brush. Just a hint of a bronzy, copper-colored blush, blended into the apples of the cheeks, is all you really need to finish off this gorgeous complexion. On the lips, a liberal application of apricot gloss will add color to your look.

We love the loose curls and light bangs Leighton is working here. To recreate this chic hairstyle, begin by sectioning hair into two or three inch pieces. Curl the hair, making sure to hold each section to the iron for a few extra seconds, so that the heat is evenly distributed. To keep your curls larger for a longer period of time, immediately mist them with hairspray, which will help them keep their shape. After the entire head of hair has been curled, coat strands with a shine spray to add luster to your locks.

I really love her makeup, but for some reason here her hair looks a bit old for her. It's a pretty style, but maybe not right for the look? This comment has been removed.
