Blake Lively’s weird chest-makeup malfunction


I think quite a bit of Blake Lively’s beauty. Honestly, I find her to be one of the prettiest girls in the current crop of Young Hollywood. I am aware, however, that her beauty has a slightly manufactured feel. I’m pretty sure she had a nose job a few years ago, and if those are her natural breasts, my day just got worse. If she did get this work done, it was done well and she looks gorgeous. We get to see a lot of her too – she usually goes to any New York red carpet event, and she almost always looks interesting and flawless. Not so much for last night’s appearance at the 2009 Angel Ball in New York.

Blake wore a black Victoria Beckham dress that I find kind of “meh”, but taken with Blake’s styling, it looks really good. However, Blake had what I can only describe as a makeup malfunction. The makeup on her face looks fine, of course – flawless, really. But she seems to have used her foundation to try to cover up something on her chest. The result was some weird, discolored blotches on her chest that would have looked at home on Lindsay Lohan. On my Blake? Not so much. Get it together, girl.

When Blake Lively arrived in a short, sexy dress at a charity ball last night, she must have been delighted with her understated and elegant look.

But the Gossip Girl actress fell foul of the bright lights on the red carpet which showed up a collection of strange blotchy marks on her chest. The 22-year-old, who until now has had immaculate fashion credentials, looked as if she had tried to cover spots on her chest with foundation or concealer.

The odd patches were the same colour as her foundation, but not the skin on her body.

They drew attention away from her otherwise flirtatious and fun Victoria Beckham mini dress from Spring/Summer 2010 collection.

She teamed it with the diamond yin and yang earrings and blue-toed heels.

Blake is said to have become firm friends with the former Spice Girl-turned-designer and Posh is rumoured to be filming a cameo role in Gossip Girl this week.

The actress has already worn Beckham’s designs on the show, so it was no suprise she chose the designer’s dress for the Angel Ball for The Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for cancer research, in New York.

Blake, who is currently filming season three of Gossip Girl, has been dating her co-star Penn Badgley for two years. He admits in the November issue of Men’s Health magazine that mixing business and pleasure can get messy.

‘Having a relationship with someone you work with might not always be the smartest move,’ he said. ‘But it’s been wonderful to be in a relationship where we can both identify with what the other is experiencing.’

Is this the worst thing in the world? Of course not. Especially when we have celebrities walking the red carpet looking like hot death. My guess is that Blake’s makeup person thought Blake had a few “imperfections” on her chest, and just dabbed a foundation-soaked makeup sponge on the “problem areas”. It’s likely that the blotches didn’t even stand out in normal lighting, and only became more prominent with camera flashes. Still, let this be a lesson to Blake and everyone out there – do not use your normal foundation to cover up skin imperfections on the rest of your body. People will notice. And they will judge!

    Oops. It looks like she forgot to blend her powder after she dusted it on. Or whoever did her makeup forgot to. I often dust powder on my chest – doesn’t everyone?

  2. Firestarter says:

    @crash2GO2- I am so old, my chest is powder! j/k, well kind of. : /

  3. Alarmjaguar says:

    I don’t, but then again, I don’t wear much makeup on my face either, just powder and mascara.

    I have to say that this seems like a tempest in a teapot, so there’s a little makeup that we can see, big deal.

  4. dude says:

    I cant seem to get into her. I do however LOVE the fact that she got a nose job & no one ever mentions it. Its sooo obvious! When I first watched Sisterhood of the Traveling pants I was distracted by her huge nose. Now its perfectly sized & “normal”. Ashlee Simpson gets a nose job & its the only thing they can talk about.

  5. j says:

    She looks older than her actuall age and she definitely had a nose job.

  6. Sumodo says:

    Secret Platinum.

  7. bo says:

    I don’t see it the same way. Those spots look to me like loss of pigmentation, or scars, or old burns – any of which could show up that way if she got a tan in the sun. I’m not saying that’s what it is, but it is certainly what it looks like to me.

  8. Eileen Yover says:

    I don’t powder my chest…but then again, I don’t walk any red carpets, so I don’t have to.
    She is pretty though.

  9. andrea says:

    i can’t take posh so i hate to say it, but i love that dress – and combined with those shoes? LOVE IT. each detail (the shoulders, the peplum, the shoes) have interest, but just a touch of interest, not bash you in the face trying too hard interest.

  10. Roma says:

    I’m embarrassed by how much makeup I put on my chest before I bartend. We always have photographers around and if you don’t take care of the ladies they get a weird glare to them. That being said, I think Blake’s issue is miscoloured cover-up.

  11. moo says:

    she’s got coke boogers too, which may explain the white powder on her chest… just sayin…..

  12. Wench says:

    I can see that she’s beautiful but I just can’t appreciate it. I think her face looks like it’s melting. Some acid incident went down.

  13. Cinderella says:

    She’s cuter when she smiles. Her body is banging.

    Unfortunately, the concealer on her chest didn’t conceal much.

  14. kristin says:

    Erm, that sucks and is kind of embarassing. She’s really pretty, manufactured or not. As for this mess, it looks like she was trying to cover up blemishes on her chest and the foundation didn’t match that skin.

  15. Annie says:

    Normally, I think her look is flawless (HELLO! SO MUCH LOVE FOR THAT PINK MICHAEL KORS DRESS)

    But this dress was not so hot.

    And as others have mentioned, it’s probably pretty normal to powder the chest area a little because of all the flashes and shit, but meh, I’ve never had a blemish on my chest lol. So I have no idea how that would work.

  16. elusive says:

    Wow that is quite the nosejob! I have to say I preferred Ashlees old nose, but Blake’s is definately a change for the better.

  17. sdfhj says:

    She was definetely using a lighter foundation or highlighter to make that area look fuller and “pop” its probably part of her regular dressing up routine and she probably smeared it on quickly without seeing that it wasnt rubbed in

  18. crash2GO2 says:

    @Firestarter – I powder my chest to cover the age spots!

  19. biffster says:

    Looks to me like the reflections from those big rocks in her ears, not makeup.

  20. Whatever says:

    She looks like Chloe Sevigny (spelling?) here. I’m not seeing what you are gushing over in regards to her beauty, sorry.

  21. Patrice says:

    Um, yeaaaah, Blake did have a REALLY obvious nose job a few years ago (check her out in the first “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” movie), and those boobies are NOT God given by any means, but I love her anyway. Her “work” although obvious, is excellent and very nice looking. Let’s just hope that she quits now while she’s ahead. She staterd very early and we all know what that can lead to (Lindsay Lohan anyone?).

  22. Ally says:

    The Fug girls are always screen-yelling at her, “Legs or boobs, Blake, legs OR boobs!”

    Looks like for once she had a top that covered her top half, but then had to shove up her boobs to still peek out and exaggerate that with make-up. Why all the distraction from her natural youthful gorgeousness = mystery.

  23. crash2GO2 says:

    What the hell is with the orange smeared between her eyes?? I just noticed that…

  24. gg says:

    It’s either dermablend or concealer for little red bumps (sloppily applied to boot), or she swabbed perfume on each breast, then the cleavage, then dusted with some body powder. Happens all the time to me, especially with more shimmery powders, like Juicy. I think a lady should always dust her decolletage with tempting light powder.

  25. By wearing sexy dress, Blake Lively’s beauty looks so wonderful. She is potential artist, I think

  26. j. ferber says:

    Call it a pet peeve, but I find the mole by her nose on the right cheek very distracting and wish she would remove it. I don’t really see the beauty either.

  27. kimberly says:

    so happy she’s not sporting those age lines around her nose and mouth when she smiles in these pics!!

    It makes her look like a 40year old lady that watched too much sex in the city and is trying to still remain “Young”.

  28. Kelsey says:

    @kimberly: Couldn’t have said it better myself. I thought I was the only one who thought she looked like one of those old actresses from the sex and the city. She looks way too old for her age. May be it’s because of all the makeup she wears. I don’t know, but all Gossip girl girls like to wear way too much makeup except Blair. Or it might be her thin lips and down-turned mouth that make her look older.
    I don’t really get why all white people seem to think she’s the most gorgeous girl ever. She’s pretty, of course, but I think there’s a million blonde girls who look equally pretty in Hollywood. But she does have a gorgeous body however. Would be a pity if she had gone under the knife.

  29. she is a great artist, have you see her new picture?
