Actress Blake Lively is known for setting trends. Whether you remember her as Serena van der Woodsen, or you follow the style guru and mom-of-two on Instagram, her looks stand out.
Not only does she have an iconic wardrobe, but she also has gorgeous makeup and hair to match. So, when she decided to share her entire makeup drawer with her followers, we had to take a close look.
On Wednesday, April 4, the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" star gave us a detailed look at her go-to beauty products in a now expired Instagram Story. "When you organize once, then gotta share with the world," Lively captioned the post, as reported by Health.
While the star's collection included high-end favorites from the Chanel, Dior and Giorgio Armani beauty lines and Charlotte Tilbury products — Tilbury has worked as Lively's makeup artists on multiple occasions — she also had some pretty affordable items mixed in.
Here are some of the items Lively uses that are less than $30:
