Brand Ambassador Ashley Greene made her mark last night, September 12, 2010, at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles. Celebrity Makeup Artist Vanessa Scali shares her top tips for creating a look as gorgeous as Ashley’s with mark.
Ashley Greene’s makeup look & inspiration: “I wanted to create a smoldering, gunmetal eye with only a hint of color in the cheeks, and a soft natural mouth.”
”Ashley has nearly flawless skin, so I used foundation and concealer sparingly. First, I used the mark Foundation Brush to apply mark Speedway Do Everything Makeup in Natural only where needed and blended in with my fingers. I find that using my fingers to blend foundation heats the product just a bit and leaves a seamless finish.
Next, I applied mark Good Riddance Hook Up Concealer in Medium/Deep under her eyes, followed by a light dusting of mark Matte-nificent Oil Absorbing Powder in Buff/Natural to her t-zone area. For her cheeks, I applied mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Cheeky to the apples, blending outward toward the cheekbones. Then, to accentuate her high cheekbones, I applied mark Get Bright Hook Up Highlighter in Natural and blended in toward the apples of her cheeks. The combination of the creamy textures and hint of color blend to make the cheeks look pretty and luminous.”
“First, I applied mark I-mark Custom Pick Eyeshadow in Corset to her lid, blending just over the natural crease and extending outward to elongate her eyes. I used the same color under her bottom lashes for a soft smoky effect. For a kick of shine, I added a touch of mark Get Bright Hook Up Highlighter in Natural to her brow bone. Eye liner is truly the key to this look – it adds a depth of color and edge that make this eye look sexy. For Ashley’s eyes, I lined her top and bottom lids with mark No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner in Jet Set. I focused on making the top line heavier and blended into the shadow, while blending the bottom line with the mark Flat Eyeliner Brush to smooth underneath her bottom lashes. The final touch was lining the inside rim of the eye. I love a full, feathery lash so I finished with a double coat of mark Scanda-Lash Hook Up Mascara in Blacklash.”
“To keep Ashley’s lips looking gorgeous and natural, I applied mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Bare Hug.”
