We spend a good proportion of our time drooling over our favourite Gossip Girls here at Grazia Daily HQ, so imagine our excitement when we heard that both Blake and Leighton loved a particular eyeliner so much that they've demanded more to be made in a brand new hue. Crikey! I mean we may not be able to magic Blake’s figure or Leighton’s hair, but now we can apparently master their makeup.
So, word on the grapevine goes that the two Upper East Siders were so impressed by Eyeko’s smudge -free , super resistant Skinny Liquid Eyeliner on the Gossip Girl set, that they requested more colours. And since Serena and Blake always get what they want (oh, to have their life), Eyeko have brought out a brand new purple shade to accompany the black, olive, navy blue and brown shades already in the range.
And apparently, it's just as popular this side of the pond… cool cats like Alexa Chung, Rita Ora and Fearne Cotton are all fans too. And if the Gossip Girls' recent beauty looks are anything to go by, we can see why - remember how much Ms Lively rocked it at the Savages premiere back in June?
So how to perfect their gamine flicks? Top make up artist Polly Osmond advises, "For professional make-up results start mid-way and dot across the upper lid as close to the lashes as possible, then simply join the dots for an accurately lined eye".
All the Graziettes are loving the high-fashion shade which is not only a great alternative to black but is perfect for the cat eye trend this Autumn. And if taking note of Blake and Leighton's top beauty picks gets us any closer to looking as damn gorgeous as they do, then we'll be happy. Take a look at our gallery for some inspiration from the beauties themselves. All Eyes On The Upper East Side!
