How To Get Leighton Meester's Off-Camera Natural Look

We all adore her as Blair Waldorf, the rich, spoiled NY girl on TV's Gossip Girl. Everything about her speaks luxury, from her salon perfect hair to her polished high-end cosmetics.

But when 24-year-old Leighton Meester is off-camera, that means only minimal makeup.

Just recently, the star of Gossip Girl told InStyle magazine, that when she's not on television, she prefers a more natural look:

"Ill just use a little cheek stain, curl my lashes, and put on some lip balm and sunscreen."

So, let's take a look at how lovely Leighton Meester is keeping it real. Here are her favorite beauty products for that natural look:

1. Smith's Rosebud Salve ($6, at beauty stores like Sephora). "This is my desert island beauty pick. I use it all the time."
2. Benefit Benetint ($28, Sephora). "The most natural flush."
3. L'Oreal Paris Bare Naturale Mascara ($10, at drugstores). "One of my favorite buys because I can find it wherever I go."
4. Herbal Essences 'Tousle Me Softly' Spray Gel ($3, at drugstores). "Holds my style but still lets my hair move. Plus, it smells great."
5. Chanel Hydramax Active Gel Cream ($72, fine dept. stores). "Taking care of my skin is important. You've got to have a good base to play with makeup."
5. Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover ($26, at fine dept. stores). "This gets everything off--even stage makeup."
6. Custom-Blended Fragrance ($9, here). "It's my signature scent--white tea, fig, and sandalwood oils."

Great natural beauty tips, Leighton Meester!
