Get the Look: Ashley Greene Wears Lancome to New Moon Premiere

OMG you guys!  I can’t wait for New Moon!  A few friends and myself already purchased tickets two weeks ago, how diseased and geeky are we.  Honestly, I dropped down on my knees in relief when I seen TL’s buzzcut, I swear if he keeps looking all kinds of hotness I could be swayed towards the Team Jacob side of the fence.  Hey, at least the boy looks like he took a shower, wish I could say the same for Rpattz.

Anyway…..

I’m not normally one for posting makeup looks but since I’m on my Twilight high I thought I’d slap up Ashley Greene’s Lancome Look which she wore to the New Moon Premiere.

Ashley Green Twilight New Moon

Celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali is guilty as charged for Ashley’s gorgeous, classic 60′s look with well-define eyes, lots of lashes, a strong brow, and clean skin with subtle kisses of pink and coral on cheeks and lips.

Vanessa evened out Ashley’s nearly flawless skin with a bit of Lancome Effacernes Concealer in Light Bisque underneath her eyes.  She followed up with Bobbi Brown’s Foundation Stick and Lancome Blush Subtil in Shimmer Pink Pool on the apples of the cheeks.

For Ashley’s eyes, Vanessa swept YSL Fard Lumiere Aquaresistant Cream Eyeshadow in Pink Sands over the entire eye.  To define and elongate the lash line, Vanessa used Lancôme’s Artliner in Black and lined the inner rims with Shu Uemura’s Painting Liner in White.  As a finishing touch she used a few generous coats of Lancôme’s Ôscillation Mascara in Black.  Ashley’s brows were sculpted with Lancôme’s Le Crayon Poudre in Brunet.

Finally, Lancôme’s hot new lipstick from the Pout-á-Porter series—L’Absolu Rouge in Chris & Tell—made a sneak peek appearance. The gorgeous hue, which was created for designer Chris Benz’s Spring show, will be available in February. The Chris & Tell waiting list is open at the Saks Fifth Avenue New York counter. Call 212-940-2033 to be added to the waiting list.

I think she looks lovely.  It’s a very classic look and appears quite minimal makeup wise doesn’t it?   It’s so weird seeing her all glammed up as I always envision her as a pixie-like Alice.  Although I’m kinda not into the Chris & Tell Lipstick, I think that’s off my lem list.  Will have to swatch and see.

What do you think of her look?

Bizarre or Unusual Beauty Secrets 101

beauty+secrets

We all know celebs are out there living the high life, we should all be so lucky and of course with all that money floating about one is bound to get bored. The Muse’s theory is the more money you have the more likely you are to adapt a bizarre, possibly unusual beauty regime. It’s true right? You have a ton of cash and you’ve tried every lotion and potion on the market and now you’re bored…might as well try something different to spice things up right?

Check out some possibly unusual beauty treatments that celebs and share your own!

Catherine Zeta-Jones
Strawberries
Malic acid acts as an astringent to remove discoloration on teeth. Combining with baking powder, strawberries become a natural way to clean teeth.

Cindy Crawford
Milk
Cleopatra was well known for bathing in milk and honey. Milk is a luscious skin treat when it is added to bath water. Milk exfoliates, softens and nourishes the skin.

Debra Messing
Snake Venom
Supposedly is a great ingredient in anti-wrinkle treatment. I haven’t seen any skin care sporting it as of yet but than again I don’t have Debra Messing’s bank account, must be shopping in the wrong places!

Jennifer Love Hewitt
Toothpaste
Ahhh we’ve all tried this home remedy I’m sure, a little dab of toothpaste for my pimples. Toothpaste acts as a mask treatment to dry out pimples and reduce their size. Some toothpastes contain menthol or alcohol which accounts for the drying properities and the reduction of a pimple size.

Sandra Bullock
Hemorrhoid Cream
Personally anything that’s normally used for your butt would not be touching my face but if Sandra Bullock likes it good for her! Supposedly it’s great for wrinkles.

Halle Berry
Coffee
The idea is to mix coffee with some sort of body lotion to buff away cellulite. Can’t say if it works but plenty of people swear by it!

Julia Roberts
Olive Oil
Rubbing olive oil into nails and cuticles will keep them soft and moisturized

Eva Longoria
Placenta Protein
Word on the street is that placenta contains highly proteins, vitamins, and such to help skin regenerate.

Teri Hatcher
Wine
Dunno if Teri’s drinking in it or bathing in it although the Muse has heard that a glass of vino a day keeps the old ticker beating happy and healthy…not sure about skin though!

Do you have any unusual beauty regimes?

Me, I don’t think I really have any. I’m not one for trying out home remedies and the likes so I can’t say I really used any of the above treatments.

How about you?

Share ‘em!

P.S. I do not endorse any of the above treatments nor do I suggest you try them. I’m not a doctor or a dermatologist and have no way of knowing the effects of these treatments on skin. Always be safe when attempting anything new on your skin. This post is for entertainment purposes only. Whether or not if the following celebs actually use these treatments is entirely speculation please see the source for more information.

Yay or Nay: Kat Von D Goes Blonde

kat+von+d+blond

Kat Von D showed up at the Teen Choice Awards with a new blonde do. Honestly, I’m not sure which disturbs me more that she was at the Teen Choice Awards or that she’s now blonde. Her hair looks somewhat like a wig though and not a color job? I prefer Kat as a brunette myself but I will say, stringy, straw-looking hair aside, the blonde locks look good but we my need a little conditioner because at the moment it has a too long in the fryer look about it!

Proper Teen Choice attire?

Madonna’s Eye-Conic Look From Shu Uemura

Madonna+Eye Conic+Look+From+Shu+Uemura
Whether you love her or you hate her it’s unquestionable that Madonna is a style icon. From her flair for fashion, her eye for accessories, and of course, most important for the Muse, her minimal yet dramatic makeup she reigns in the realm of chic and classy.

Artistic Director Gina Brooke created Madonna’s most recent look for her Sticky & Sweet 2009 Summer Tour and you’ll be quite delighted to know how easy it is to do for yourself!

Click it for the details!

Madonna’s look was inspired by her hit song “Ray of Light”, Brooke, who has been working with Madonna since 2002, transforms Madonna’s eyes by applying a mix of crushed, small flawless diamonds and white eye shadow to her lids. The results is a bright and sparkling glow!

Brooke uses Shu Uemura Press Eye Shadow in ME White 905 to provide a soft, light reflecting, diamond-like effect. Brooke uses actual diamonds to surround Madonna’s eyes of course we can’t all afford to snag ourselves some diamonds. To duplicate the effect try using bindis which you can find in any number of small Indian bridal shops or online at www.bindishop.com

Brooke feels that any woman of any age can wear a shimmery, ethereal shade like ME White 906 from Shu. “A little sheen helps enhance the eyes and instantly gives a younger appearance. Modonna is always up for trying new things and I think all women should feel comfortable experimenting and enhancing their beauty….” states Brooke.

In 2004, Brooke collaborated with Shu Uemura to create a pair of custom made mink lashes for Madonna. In 2006, she took the idea to a revolutionary level by creating a pair of diamond and minkencrusted lashes for Madonna. After overwhelming interest from consumers, the Shu Uemura lashes were created and sold exclusively at Neiman Marcus for $10,000 a pair.

Sparkling white shadow and diamonds always make me think of the crisp frozen Winter, Ice Queens, and Christmas. I love this look as the weather grows colder but sadly the Muse is fresh out of 10 g’s for the lashes but she doesn’t mind indulging in Shu Uemura ME White 905 and a pack of $1.50 bindi brow stickers to duplicate the look and you can too!
