meet me at the met {ashley greene's met ball makeup look}

Truth: The Met Ball is basically the only Gala of
the year that I get excited about so I always pay very. close. attention
to the makeup and fashion.

This year, while I loved Ashley Greene's Marchesa gown, it was
her fierce makeup that caught my eye - a look that would be
just as perfect for a sassy Girls Night Out as it was for the
PUNK: Chaos to Couture exhibit. And mark
has provided me with the deets from Celebrity Makeup Artist
Vanessa Scali
to recreate it for such an occasion.

FACE + CHEEKS: "I started by prepping Ashley’s skin with mark For Goodness Face Antioxidant Skin Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30. I used my fingers to apply {by patting} concealer under the eyes. Then I applied mark Just Pinched in Nude onto her cheeks to add subtle warmth to her skin {Ashley just returned from a trip, so her skin is already sun-kissed and golden!}. I added mark Glowdacious Illiuminating Powder on the peak of her cheekbones. I set the look with mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder.”

EYES: “I layered Ashley’s eyes with color by starting with the dark shade from mark Keep it Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Entourage. I applied it from the base of the lash up past the natural crease and out past the natural corner of the eye. This gave me depth to work with and established the shade for the eye. Then, I used the purple and taupe shades from mark On the Dot Bold Eye Color Compact to add color to the center of the eye and softness to the edges. I added a mix of the three colours under her bottom lashes. For extra intensity, I used mark No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner in Jet Set and smudged it into the shadow. I applied mark Color Me in Eye Crayon in Go Gold inside the waterline of her eye and added a touch of highlighter to the brown bone. I added the final touch to her eyes by applying a few layers of mark Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Black.”

LIPS: “To finish Ashley’s look, I gave her a soft, satin nude lip by using NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Biscayne Park.”

BROWS: “I complemented her brows’ shape by applying NARS Eyebrow Pencil in Jodhpur.”

What do you think of Ashley's Met Ball makeup? Is this a look that you would try for a special occasion or Girls' Night Out?
