Ashley Greene’s Hair and Makeup Breakdown at the LA Premiere of Eclipse

Ashley Greene looked pretty fabulous at the Los Angeles premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. I got the deets on her hair and makeup for you to recreate the look on your own.

Celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali designed  Ashley’s makeup look. Here, she breaks down the steps to stunning using mark cosmetics

Inspiration “We wanted to create a glowing goddess look to complement her beautiful Alexis Mabille Couture dress. The overall look was golden skin, soft blushed cheeks, champagne shimmer and a softly lined eye.”

Face ”I prepped Ashley’s skin by applying mark Primed for Perfection Face Primer all over Ashley’s face to create a nice, even canvas. I like the skin to look flawless but real, so I use foundation and concealers sparingly. I used mark Speedway Do Everything Makeup in Natural. I applied it with the mark Foundation Brush and then blended it with my fingers. Using my fingers to blend heats the product just a bit and leaves a seamless finish.  Next, I applied mark Good Riddance Hook Up Concealer in Light/Medium under her eyes.”

Cheeks “I applied just a touch of mark Get Bright Hook Up Highlighter in Natural to the top of her cheekbones, down the center of her nose and the bow of her top lip.  Next, I applied mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder in Pro Glo to her temples, under her cheekbones and under her jaw line to lightly enhance the bronze in her natural skin tone. Lastly, I used mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Peachy on the apples of her cheeks for the perfect healthy flush.”

Eyes “For Ashley’s eyes I started by using mark I-mark Custom Pick Eyeshadow in Nomadic to create a champagne shimmer all over her eyelids and under the bottom lashes.  Next, to define and elongate the lash line, I lined her upper eyelids with mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner and Shadow in Entourage (Black Shade).  For a touch of added depth, I used mark Get in Line Hook Up Waterproof Eyeliner in Painted Black at the very base of her lashes.  I finished with a few generous coats of mark Lash Splash Hook Up Waterproof Mascara in Black.”

Lips “For Ashley’s lips, I started by using a dab of mark Kiss Dry Goodbye Lip Smoother to give her lips a touch of moisture.  I then used mark Kissink Liptint Marker in Berry to define the outer edge of her lips and smudged the color into the center.”

Ted Gibson created Ashley’s soft partial updo. He said that he wanted Ashley to be just like a “Grecian goddess, effortless and chic.” Ted’s tips for Ashley’s red carpet look:  

Prep: On wet hair he started off by swiping Hairsheet Styling and to create a foundation applied Fix it gel from the scalp all the way to the ends. 

Adding Texture: Ted then blow-dried Ashley’s hair with a large round brush.  To create the soft romantic waves he used a large curling iron.  To create shine and texture he used Tame it shine lotion. 

Finish: To finish off the look and to add hold Ted used Beautiful Hold hairspray and pulled Ashley’s hair back on the sides for a half up half down look.

Ted didn’t want to do anything over the top with Ashley’s hair for the red carpet because “she wore couture and the hair needed to be simple and young.”
