Five Steps to Glamorous Gossip Girl-inspired Holiday Makeup

Blake Lively proved that she's the heir to Veronica Lake's bombshell throne earlier this year in the February issue of Vogue magazine. Everything was spot-on, from her wavy mane and porcelain skin, to the estate jewelry paired with classic gowns. The makeup was particularly glamorous, and it's a great look to recreate for upcoming New Year's Eve parties. Here's how to get Blake's bombshell makeup look in five easy steps:

1. After applying full-coverage foundation and concealer, sweep a dusting of loose, matte face powder like MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microfinish Loose Powder, $30, over the entire face, neck, shoulders, and decollete.
2. Create a strong brow with the help of Maybelline Expert Eyes Brow Pencils, $3.
3. Go all-out with lashes! Apply two coats of thickening mascara, then apply individual false lashes from middle of eye to outer corner. Try Ardell DuraLash Flare Short Black Lashes, $3.50.
4. Gently apply a sheer wash of soft pink matte blush to apples of cheeks. We like Revlon Matte Powder Blush in "Rose Rapture," $9.80.
6. Finish off your look with a strong matte lip in a true red that's not too orange or too blue. Laura Geller's Lipstick in "On Stage," $11, is a good bet.
