Blake Lively talks budget beauty

Blake Lively has shared her down-to-earth beauty beliefs, her laidback grooming routine and her favourite affordable make-up item.

The actress can't live without an affordable make-up item found at most drug stores in the US.

The style icon insists the price of things shouldn't matter; it's about how products make you feel. "[The item I swear by is] there is this brand sold in drug stores called Physicians Formula. They have this $8 bronzer," Blake told the Huffington Post. "It looks like a mosaic of five different colours. I think it's called Mocha. Find things that give you your identity. If you like your lips, lip gloss will do it for you. And the same goes for mascara! The greatest way to feel glamorous is to just feel like yourself and be in your own skin."

The 25-year-old famously refuses the assistance of star stylists. While she prefers a laidback and low maintenance beauty regime when off duty, she does rely on a team of trusted hair and make-up professionals to get her ready for big events.

"I have a pretty laidback day-off routine. I always like very natural hair and make-up. I don't like hair too coiffed or done. I like looking like you can end the night running barefoot through a fountain in Central Park. I always have people that do my hair and make-up that I really like, people that are honest," she continued. "If I show them a picture and say that I like a certain style, they will tell me I don't have the right face shape for it."
