Get Her Look: Jessica Szohr

In Celebs, Colour, Complexion, Lips, Lipstick on January 27, 2011 at 6:00 am

I’ve been a fan of Gossip Girl since I read an excerpt in a magazine during high school and started to collect the books.  When I read through all the Australian-released ones, I quickly snapped the last four of the series up from New York in 2007.  Then, when I heard there was to be a television show, I was ecstatic.  Not a fan of Vanessa when I read about her, seeing her on screen was another story.  Jessica Szohr has got charisma and I love, love, love her off duty look and red carpet inspiration. Exhibit A – this perfect premier look that could work for everyday people like you and me when we head out for dinner with the girls or on a hot date…

A perfect everyday look.

The reason it’s amazing is because it looks as though she hasn’t even tried – just slicked on some makeup and put some clips in her hair, and out the door she goes.

To copy, make sure your skin is in impeccable condition.  Use a serum at night and before your foundation to make the best base for your base.  Using a brush, lightly blend in your foundation (liquid will give you more of a glow) and line your eyes with a kohl liner.  Slick with some black mascara and get started on the lips – the winning feature here.

While Jess’ colour looks a little red, a better and more on-trend shade to use would be a bright coral.  Tom Ford’s lip colour in True Coral (RRP $65) is an amazing choice (and not just for its killer packaging).  The colour lasts at least eight hours and has a bright tinge that doesn’t wash you out.  First, apply a balm or a lip repair onto your lips to create the best base.  Next, apply the colour with a brush, blot with a tissue and reapply with the brush.  Lastly, pop your finger in your mouth and pull out – this little trick will remove the lipstick that would ordinarily stick to your teeth and ruin the whole look.

Blend a tiny bit of illuminator on your cheekbones and a slick of coral-brown blush on your cheeks and you’re set for makeup.

Jess’ hair is naturally dried, straightened and smoothed a little with tongs, and then pinned back to the side of her head.  Without the bright, punchy makeup this would look childish, but with it, it works.  Yes!

Add a fake tan and you’re done!

  1. She looks hot. I’m yet to venture into the world of the bright red lip… I’ve tried raspberry colours and they just don’t suit my fair skin and freckles.

    The Tom Ford red looks marvelous!

    • The Tom Fords are fabulous. I want the Cherry Lush colour – that would really suit you, I think. A deeper berry. Let me know how you go if you do try. X
