Blake Lively Inspired Look

Hello beauties, so in my last post I set myself a challenge of recreating a hair and makeup look that Blake Lively sported for the red carpet event of the 100th episode of Gossip Girl. As you must of guessed by now I am a huge fan on Blake Lively and every time I see a picture of her I always think that she looks effortlessly beautiful. Her hair is always messy yet perfect and her makeup is natural looking. The picture show below has inspired me to re-create this hair and makeup look. I hope you enjoy!

Hair Picture

For this hairstyle I had second day hair, making it easier to style and I find that there is a lot more texture there when it's not been washed and dry shampoo has been added. I used a lot of kirby grips to keep everything in place and Aussie's Dual Personality Hi-Hold and Hi-Shine Hairspray to secure it.

I hope you enjoyed this inspired look beauties and if you would like any tutorials on how I created this look please let me know in the comments below.
