Stepping outside her New York City penthouse without an ounce of makeup on would’ve been Blair Waldorf’s nightmare, but for the actress who played her, Leighton Meester, going makeup-free is no biggie. On Wednesday, the 31-year-old “Gossip Girl” star shared a stunning makeup-free selfie on Instagram that we’re still fawning over.
The picture featured Meester sitting in a brick-lined alley with slightly oily hair, a natural sheen of sweat, and a face bare of any makeup. Aside from dark-colored nail polish on her hand, Meester went completely makeup-free, showing off her naturally sparse brows and oil-damp skin. “☝🏼,” she simply captioned her Instagram.
Meester is far from the first celebrity to go makeup-free on Instagram, but it’s always refreshing to see a celebrity who has dozens of high-end beauty products step out without an inch of glam.
