Ashley Greene At The Met Ball Makeup — Gorgeous Smokey Eyes
Celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali created the punk rock look for mark Brand Ambassador Ashley.
To complement her Marchesa gown, she went with bold, dark eyes and a nude lip. Get her exact step by step below:
“I started by prepping Ashley’s skin with mark For Goodness Face Antioxidant Skin Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30. I used my fingers to apply (by patting) concealer under the eyes. Then I applied mark Just Pinched in Nude onto her cheeks to add subtle warmth to her skin (Ashley just returned from a trip, so her skin is already sun-kissed and golden). I added mark Glowdacious Illiuminating Powder on the peak of her cheekbones. I set the look with mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder.”
“I layered Ashley’s eyes with color by starting with the dark shade from mark Keep it Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Entourage. I applied it from the base of the lash up past the natural crease and out past the natural corner of the eye. This gave me depth to work with and established the shade for the eye. Then, I used the purple and taupe shades from mark On the Dot Bold Eye Color Compact to add color to the center of the eye and softness to the edges. I added a mix of the three colors under her bottom lashes. For extra intensity, I used mark No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner in Jet Set and smudged it into the shadow. I applied mark Color Me in Eye Crayon in Go Gold inside the waterline of her eye and added a touch of highlighter to the brown bone. I added the final touch to her eyes by applying a few layers of mark Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Black.”
“To finish Ashley’s look, I gave her a soft, satin nude lip by using Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Biscayne Park. I complemented her brows’ shape by applying Nars Eyebrow Pencil in Jodhpur.”
Ashley’s Messy, Edgy Hair — Get The Exact Look From Her Hairstylist
Hairstylist extraordinaire Ted Gibson told HollywoodLife.com about the inspiration behind the look:
“This was a really fun hair moment for Ashley Greene. We opted for half up/half down look with a coif in the front. I am calling it young punk chic!
“To get this look for her, I used Build It Blowdrying Agent and Fix It Gel for amazing texture and a roughed up feeling. I used my fingers and hands to blowdry — not a brush — so that it had that rockabilly flair. After the hair was dry, I took a section of hair, twisted it into a coif in the front, then pinned it towards the back of the head. Then, I took the sides back and sprayed with Beautiful Hold Hairspray.”
