Celebrity Makeup Artist Kristofer Buckle used Dior Beauty products to create the look for Blake Lively( S from Gossip Girl) at the 2009 61st Emmy Awards.
How to get the look
Skin: DiorSkin Airflash Spray Foundation in #301, Dior Skinflash #3 around the eyes.
Lips: Dior Serum de Rouge Lipstick as a base with Dior Lip Polish in Radiance Expert on top.
Eyes: DiorShow Blackout Mascara, Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow in Beige Messai#705
