Leighton Meester insists she is quite low-maintenance when it comes to her beauty regime.
The Gossip Girl actress says she is laid back about her look and prefers not wearing a lot of makeup because she has to wear so much for work.
She said, “I get serious makeup every day; it’s like playing dress-up! But it takes its toll because you’re being touched constantly. If I’m not working I’ll wear a tinted moisturizer. When it comes to my hair, I’m wash and go! When I want to look like I’ve made an effort I leave it down. When it’s up, people think you don’t want to show it off! It’s a good trick.”
While she is quite low-maintenance now with her beauty regime, Leighton admits she used to have self-confidence issues so would wear a lot of makeup to compensate for it.
The 24-year-old beauty told Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine, “I didn’t see myself as pretty when I was 18, so I went too far with my makeup. I look back and wish I’d thought I was pretty. I wouldn’t have worn so much.”
