As an A-list star, one would imagine that Leighton Meester has easy access to just about every beauty product on the market. But it sounds like the Gossip Girl star prefers to keep her shelves pretty clear.

“My makeup bag is so minimal it’s embarrassing,” she tells bellaSugar.com. When she find something she likes, she sticks with it, no matter how basic. “I like L’Oréal mascara, I like eyelash curlers, I like a little bit of tinted moisturizer,” she adds.

But one of the most important lessons she’s learned from her time spent in the makeup chair is less about using product — and more about keeping her skin clean.

“One of the best makeup tips I’ve ever gotten is to take off all your makeup because I’m generally really bad at that,” she admits. “That’s really saved my skin. But besides that I think just really being hydrated and being healthy. I think whatever’s on the inside shows on the outside, so it’s not as much about makeup as it is your health.”

The very root of your writing wslhit sounding agreeable in the beginning, did not sit very well with me personally after some time. Someplace within the sentences you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a very short while. I still have got a problem with your leaps in logic and one would do well to fill in all those breaks. In the event you can accomplish that, I would definitely end up being amazed.
