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?

The Muse’s Gift Guide: Cheap Christmas Gifts

Hey chicas!

Muses Gift

What’s news today? My Tuesday is flowing along quite nicely today. I just got some nice news about a review I did which will be popping up somewhere shortly, kinda chuffed properly about that. Aside from that it’s the normal hum-drum Tuesday! Can’t wait for T-Day so I can stuff myself full of turkey…ok that was so a lie…I HATE turkey haha but I’ll dig into everything else thanks very much.

I was planning to do my Gift Guides after Thanksgiving actually but more and more people have e-mailed asking after them so I figure this means everyone is in full gift getting mode.

Today I’m covering cheap Christmas gifts. This is my guide to getting some great steals and deals on makeup, skincare, and more, all with really lower price tags so you can have a little spare change after the Holidays to indulge in all those semi-annual sales!
