Why We Love Leighton Meester
Published Aug 11, 2011
She may play mean-girl-we-love Blair on Gossip Girl but Leighton Meester is nothing but smiles when it comes to showing off different hair and makeup trends. From blonde to brunette and back again, Leighton loves to experiment with bright lipsticks and knows how powerful a good smoky eye can be. Don't believe she's a beauty trendsetter? This is the gal who brought back the headband, remember?
Rosy cheeks and heavily-lined eyes look stunning against Leighton's super straight 'do. Her skin looks fresh and natural and she tones it down with a nude lip.

Leighton likes to experiment with color, and this bright lip pops against her alabaster skin. She keeps blush to a minimum and uses only a little mascara to finish her eyes.

Leighton channels Brigitte Bardot here with her sexy smoky eyes and messy bouffant. Leighton pulls off this bedroom look with bronzed skin, minimum blush and a nude glossy lip.

A bold purple lip plays off against Leighton's messy faux-bob up-do and pale skin. Apricot eyeshadow works to bring out her eyes and plays against her purplish lipstick.
