Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Ashley Greene of “The Twilight Saga” always nails it on the red carpet with her flawless makeup (of course, it doesn’t hurt that she’s naturally stunning to begin with)!

Celebrity makeup artist, Vanessa Scali, who has also worked with Hilary Duff and Christina Hendricks, works with Ashley frequently, creating those gorgeous red carpet looks you see. Here she shows you how she created Ashley’s look in the photo seen here.

The Look
A smoldering, gunmetal eye with a hint of color in the cheeks, and a soft natural mouth.

Face
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.

Cheeks
I applied mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Cheeky to the apples of the cheeks, blending outward toward the cheekbones. Then, to accentuate her 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.

Eye Shadow
First, I applied mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow 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.

Eyeliner
Eyeliner is the key to this look – it adds the depth of color and edge that makes this eye look incredibly sexy. I lined her eyes (top and bottom) with mark No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner in Jet Set. The top line was drawn heavier and blended into the shadow. Under the lashes, I used the mark Flat Eyeliner Brush to blend and smooth. The last touch was lining the inside rim (water line) of the eye.

Mascara
I love a full, feathery lash so I finished with a double coat of mark Scanda-Lash Hook Up Mascara in Blacklash.

Lips
To balance the strong eye, I kept Ashley’s lips looking gorgeous and natural. I applied mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Bare Hug.
