The Gossip Girl is almost as well known for her sun-kissed skin (and formerly blonde!) beachy locks as she is for her acting! The secret to her summery glow? “You have to keep your skin moisturized and protected, so I wear Chanel tinted moisturizer with sunscreen for my face,” she tells PEOPLE StyleWatch. To keep her long limbs hydrated, she turns to La Mer body cream.

Another must-have beauty item this season? Hot pink lipstick. Her go-to brand is YSL, which, she says, “makes the most beautiful electric matte lip colors that I love for summer.” The star adores Rouge Volupté #10, cheekily named “Provocative Pink!”

Though she certainly has the legs to pull off a potentially tricky romper with panache, the star has a favorite trick to rock the style: “I like to balance one pieces with an armful of bangles,” she says.

The perfect summer gems to complement a bronzed bod? “There’s nothing more beautiful than hammered gold pieces by Ofira,” Blake gushes – here sporting stacks of bangles from the brand at the 2011 Elle style awards.

Blake’s secret to sex appeal is keeping it simple. “When I want to be sexy, I wear jeans, a white T-shirt and a bright colored Chanel bag,” she says. Luckily for her, she’s got more access than most to the coveted purses – as the face of Chanel Mademoiselle handbags, she’ll be stocked with the classic style.

No stranger to style experiments, the star’s favorite summer color combos are all about the contrast. She loves pairing coral with white, or rocking turquoise against a darker color.
