Zelana: Since her big debut in Twilight, Ashley Greene has sent us in a tizzy over all her stunning red carpet looks. So we asked Ashley’s make up artist Jamie Greenberg to help us get the look.
Jamie Greenberg: Her signature look. Fresh, dewy and really glamorous eyes. So we’re going to start with a nice luxurious moisturizer. Make sure to get it all over your face, bring it on down the neck and even the décolleté. You want to look moisturized everywhere. Now, you want to use a foundation or a tinted moisturizer so that we can get a perfectly even skin tone on the face.
So if your neck area is darker than your face, you want to match your neck area so you don’t have a floating head. Next step, we’re going to apply a little highlighter to the top of the cheekbone area. This is really important to get that dewy skin look, just look glamorous and great. Next, we’re going to create an inner flush. Apply the cream blush to the apple of the cheek and then blend upwards towards the hairline to have the color look like what you normally look like when you’re flushed.
And now we’re going to mattify the T-zone so that you’re dewy in all the right places. Down in the middle of the face, the nose, the lips, the chin. Now that we have the flawless face, let’s get ready to create that killer Hollywood eye. You want to create a really dark lash line. We’re taking a nice flat brush, a dark cream liner and we’re going to put it right where the lash line comes out and the skin meets. It really makes a difference.
Now, we’re going to create a pre-contour with a nice natural beige. Placing this color right in the crease going back and forth which will also gives the appearance of a bigger, bolder eye. To create dept we’re going to go one shade darker with shadow on the low lid, blend it together until it’s perfectly fused.
Now, we’re going to create shape by placing liner on the top of the lash line back and forth. This creates the illusion of one thick bold lash line. It’s all about the long sexy lashes. So let’s apply two coats of mascara to the top lashes and one coat to the bottom. To get your eyes looking awake, you’re to place a flesh tone colored eyeliner on the bottom rim. Final step, just like Ashley’s look we’re going to keep the lips natural and glossy. Let the eyes steal the show.
Zelana: Now, you’re ready for opening night of New Moon with the glam look inspired by Ashley. Stay beautiful and we’ll see you next time on Bella TV.
