Celebrity makeup artist, Vanessa Scali, made Twilight/New Moon star Ashley Greene sizzle on the red carpet last night at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards. Ashley wore a light blue bustier top and flowery skirt by Dolce & Gabbana, so Scali created a look that was sweet, summery and sexy.
"I wanted Ashley to have radiant skin, so I used Shu Uemura’s new red:juvenus skincare line first using the Vitalizing Refining Lotion followed by the Intense Revitalizing Concentrate," said Scali. "These products feel weightless and penetrate quickly leaving the skin energized, refined and radiant." To complete the look, Scali gave Ashley, the winner of Teen Choice’s "Fresh Face", a beautiful shimmery taupe eye and a well-blushed cheek.
To recreate Ashley’s look, Scali suggests you take the following steps:
SKIN PREP: Shu Uemura Vitalizing Refining Lotion followed by Intense Revitalizing Concentrate (both available August 18th at shuuemura-usa.com). These products really made Ashley’s skin glow, creating the perfect canvas for makeup.
UNDEREYE: Lancôme’s Effacernes in Light Bisque. It gives clean, fresh coverage.
FOUNDATION: Shu Uemura Nobara Cream Cover Stick Foundation (available September 1st at shuuemura-usa.com). It gives a beautiful, flawless, natural look.
BLUSH: Lancôme’s Color Design Blush in Petticoat Pink on the apples of the cheeks.
EYESHADOW: Shu Uemura’s Cream Eye Shadow in P Brown all over the eye lid blending off at the crease and under the bottom lashes close to the lash line.
EYE LINERS: To define and elongate the lash line, use Shu Uemura’s Painting liner in Black. Also, line the inner rim of the eye with a matte white pencil. This is a great way to open the eye.
LASHES: For luxuriously full lashes, give yours a boost by adding Shu Uemura’s Flare Lashes in Black.
MASCARA: One generous coat of Kiehl’s Marvelous Mineral Mascara in Black.
POWDER: In the T-zone only, apply Shu Uemura’s Face Powder in Colorless (matte formula).
LIPS: Use Shu Uemura’s Rouge Unlimited in Wine 296 to stain the lip and finished with a light touch of Shu Uemura Gloss Unlimited bg 952s.
