Get The 5 Gossip Girl Beauty Looks: The Ultimate Checklist Johny Saade: The beauty looks on this show are amazing. It’s very youthful, fresh, edgy. Each girl has a unique style. Blair, she’s the Upper East Side like Queen B in this look. Her hair is down. She’s got nice wave. It’s very simple but done up a little bit. She’s got that bold lip with a little bit of gloss, a little lipstick on a plum colors and that’s like the boldest thing in her makeup and it’s all about eye definitions. Everything else is very soft and nude and shimmering. That’s the big key to keep it beautiful. And there is Jenny. She’s totally different from all other girls. She’s very edgy. She’s not scared to take risks. Jenny’s hair in this scene is definitely colored to get that bright cut in a blonde color. Also, I think she has extension in there to get the length. Her lips, it’s like burnt red matte lipstick. For her, this color works really good because of her pale skin. It just makes it pop. It’s a soft smokey eye and it’s not traditional. The key is eyeliner inside the eye and outside the eye. Olivia’s hair and makeup was a great day time look. It’s very soft, clean and easy to do. It looks almost like she just roll out of bed and did really nothing to it and that’s what the hair shows. Her lips are nude color, easy to do, a little bit of gloss. Her skin is very dewy and she has a little bit of like a peachy bronze on just to give to her a little bit of color. Her eyes have a light shimmer on them and a little bit of mascara and eyeliner just to give her a little definition. Serena is definitely one of my favorite characters because she always sets the trends. She’s very fashionable. She has that downtown style. Serena’s hair is a simple braid. It’s just put off in a high ponytail and that’s what makes it fashionable. Serena has a bold color also on her lips. It’s like a berry shade. Her eyes are really easy to do. It’s a soft shimmer champagne and black mascara to define her eyes. Vanessa is definitely a Bohemian beauty. She’s got the dark hair, dark skin and the bright blue eyes. Her hairstyle here is pulled back to give her a little volume on the top. She’s wearing a hot pink glossy lip which works really well with her skin tone. To bring out her blue eye color, they use gold shimmer which also works really well with her all of skin tone. Not only this looks beautiful on TV but they’re easy to do on real life. Overall, I think the Gossip Girls hair and makeup is amazing, it’s easy to do and I love it. Zelena: Stay beautiful and we’ll see you next time on Bella TV.
