Blake has mixed eye-popping sultry, smokey eyes with pink lips for a sexy summer contrast. The new mother opted for a gorgeous burgundy Gucci gown at the premiere of Grace of Monaco in Cannes and completed her look with a high ponytail. The end result? A casual yet stunning look!

Face

  • Cleanse your face with an extremely gentle and light Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oilcleanser.
  • Once done, even out your skin with an oil-free formula Benefit ThePorefessionalPrimer to hide blemishes and for a long-lasting result.
  • Now, contour your face with L’Oréal Glam Bronze Duo 101 Blonde Harmony bronzer. Start applying from the hollows of your cheeks towards your temples.
  • For maintaining that healthy glow, dust a wash of soft rosy pink blusher like Maybelline Mineral Power Naturally Luminous Blush in Gentle Pink. This is the most natural and creates a beautiful, silky blush.

Eyes

  • Blake enhanced her gorgeous eyes by opting for lighter berry tone eyeshadow. We prefer this creamy and richColour Riche Quads Disco Smokingeyeshadow from L’Oreal.
  • She further extended her eyes’ shape by lining her lash line and waterline with L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Black.
  • For a stunning look, complete your eye makeup by lengthening your lashes. Apply two coats of Lancôme Définicils High Definitionmascara. The brush’s extra long bristles can save your time from curling too.

Lips

  • Pucker up and complete the casual look with a light pink lip color, like Nars’Pago Pagoshimmering pink.

Face

  • Begin your routine with an all natural and soothing cleanser. You can use Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser.
  • Now, apply a pore minimising primer like Benefit ThePorefessionalPrimer followed by a subtle highlighter contouring to hide blemishes and contour your picture perfect face.
  • Next, dab a matte finish foundation, like Stila’s Natural Finish Oil-Free Makeupand blend it to match your skin tone.
  • Once done, apply a wash of pink blush to the apples of your cheeks – we prefer Milani Baked Blush to deliver a rosy glow just like Blake did.

Eyes

  • For Blake’s natural eyes, apply a light champagne eyeshadow on the eyelids, CoverGirl Eye Enhancers in Champagne.
  • Follow this by defining and curling your lashes with Benefit They’re Real! Mascara.

Face

  • For that head turning complexion, start with cleansing your face with a light and smooth cleanser, CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser.
  • Once done, apply a primer, like Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, to hide blemishes and add radiance to your skin.

  • Remember that the real trick in looking fresh and maintaining that healthy glow lies in a good blusher. So, apply a wash of soft colour to the apples of your cheeks – we recommend M.A.C. Cremeblend Blush and create a healthy flush.

Eyes

Blake has drawn attention to her eyes with a subtle shimmery shadow. To get her look…

  • Apply L’Oréal’s Infallible Eyeshadow 02 Hourglass Beige eyeshadow to the base of your lids.
  • Make sure you blend them fine towards your brow bone.
