What’s in Leighton Meester’s makeup bag?

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.”

Katy Perry’s personalized fingernails at last night’s VMA’s!

You may have noticed that Katy Perry wore custom Minx nails to the 2011 Video Music Awards last night as she accepted the Video of the Year award for her powerful single, “Firework.”   If you look closer at Katy’s Minx, however, you will notice that her nails had great significance.  Each nail shows a tiny personalized image of a record at the nail bed, symbolizing each of the five hit singles from her “Teenage Dream” album that propelled Katy into music history.

Los Angeles celebrity nail stylist Kimmie Kyees designed the custom Minx, using a black and white-checkered background to contrast with the blue and pink-labeled records that had “Katy” and “Perry” written on them in script.  Katy Perry is the only woman in the history of Billboard to have five songs from the same album at No. 1 on the Hot 100.  Michael Jackson is the only other artist to have achieved this.

Kimmie Kyees is the same nail stylist who applied the custom “Russell Brand” Minx to Katy Perry for her VMA appearance last year.  Minx nails is a solid nail coating that is available in salons and spas around the world.
