Ashley Greene: Inside the Mark Studio in NY

I did Ashley Greene’s makeup for her Mark press launch. Here's what I used: For the face, I started with Mark Calm and Composed Moisturizer. I used Mark Good Riddance Concealer in Light/Medium under her eyes and around her nose. Then I applied Mark Powder Buff in Natural with the powder brush. To the apple of the cheeks, I applied Good Glowing in Cameo Glo and then used Mark Touch and Glow to highlight cheek bones using the angled contour face brush. For her eyes, I prepped the eyes with Please Hold Eye Primer in Light/Medium. I applied the light shade of Keep It Going Longwear Eyeshadow & Eyeliner Duo in Exposure to her inner eyelid, as a highlighter, using the flat eyeliner brush. Then I smudged Keep It Going, the dark brown shade of Exposure, along the top and bottom lashline using the flat eyeliner brush. Once all the creams were on, I warmed up the crease of the eye with I-Mark eyeshadow in Tiki, using the angled contour eyeshadow brush. This brush helps to blend and soften the shadow into the crease. I used an eyeliner brush to smudge Tiki along the bottom lashes, too. Next, I used On the Edge liquid eyeliner in Cleo on the top lash line to define the eye. I finished the eyes with two coats of Mark Make It Big Mascara in Raven. For the lips, I mixed Mark Lipclicks in Whiney and Cha Cha and then added Lots of Lacquer Gloss in Pop.
