Blake Lively Explains Her Basic Beauty Routine & Favourite Product


‘Gossip Girl’ actress Blake Lively has amazing glowing skin always, whether she’s walking the red carpet or just off-duty. The currently pregnant beauty, who is soon expecting her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds, has spoken on her very basic beauty routine, revealing that in the past she used to simply just wash her skin with water and do nothing else. These days she does have one favourite product that she thinks has made a “real difference” to her complexion – a moisturizer by L’Oréal. Blake commented:

“I used to just splash my face with water and that was it. But I’ve noticed a real difference since using L’Oréal Paris Skin Perfection Day Moisturiser. I’ve converted my sisters [Robyn and Lori], too.”

Blake is currently the face of Gucci’s Première scent and she says the fragrance is so perfectly balanced because it has a slight androgynous twist that she really loves and used to always try to create herself by adding a layer of masculine cologne over a feminine perfume:

“I used to layer cologne on top of my perfume, but Gucci Première EDT strikes the perfect balance by mixing wood and leather notes with bergamot and floral accents. It’s flirty and sensual, with a hint of androgyny.”

Speaking on her style inspiration, Blake says she draws ideas from different places and is often just inspired by a certain mood:

“Lots of different looks inspire me. I channel old-school elegance one day, and then I can wake up the next and want to look like Kate Moss. Who doesn’t?”
