“I had fun glamming Kim up for her Vegas birthday,” he said. “I did her makeup that night while she was laying down on this big, comfortable spa table/reclining chair and it was actually great doing makeup that way. It’s more exciting when they can’t see what I’m doing the whole time because they get surprised at the end.”

Celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali transformed the already beautiful Twilight star Ashley Greene into a gorgeous vision at last night’s The Twilight Saga: New Moon premiere in Los Angeles.
“The look was classic 60’s,” reports Vanessa. “Well-defined eyes with lots of lashes, a strong brow and clean skin with subtle pink/coral cheeks and lips.”
To start, Vanessa evened out Ashley’s “nearly flawless skin” with Lancôme’s Effacernes Concealer in Light Bisque underneath the eyes. “It gives clean, fresh, flawless coverage,” she said. Bobbi Brown’s Foundation Stick followed. Lancôme’s Blush Subtil in Shimmer Pink Pool topped the apples of the cheeks.
For Ashley’s dramatic eyes, Vanessa swept YSL’s Fard Lumiére Aquarésistant 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. The finishing touch: a few generous coats of Lancôme’s Ôscillation Mascara in Black for “seductively lengthy lashes,” says Vanessa.
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 2010. 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.

New Moon star Taylor Lautner is InStyle‘s December Man of Style. When the mag asked how he keeps his hair looking so perfect, Taylor answered KMS Hairplay and Redken Rough Paste. Now what I’d really like to know is what this kid is brushing with. I dare you to find me straighter, whiter chompers in Hollywood…natural, I mean; Hillary Duff’s chicklet teeth don’t count.
Taylor’s girlfriend, Taylor Swift, graces the issue’s special 3-D cover.

On Friday night, I was among the 8.2 million people who watched Rihanna’s 20/20 interview. But afterwards, while most people were thinking, “Wow…that Rihanna is so brave to publicly discuss such a horrifying personal tragedy” or “That jackass, Chris Brown, deserves whatever is coming to him” – I was thinking, “What products can I use to copy Rihanna’s icy nude lip look?”
So I did what any self-respecting beauty junkie would do. I broke out my lip gloss/lipstick stash and played makeup mad scientist/mixologist. I found that creating Rihanna’s 20/20 look is quite easy to do. All you need is a nude lipstick that is lighter than your complexion, and a silver gloss. Be sure to apply foundation to lips before trying this look, as the foundation will help cancel out any pink in your lips and let the lip color stand alone.
Here are some combos that I think would pass RiRi scrutiny:
1) Clinique Different Lipstick in Tenderheart + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
2) MAC Lipstick in Modesty + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
3) Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss Stick in Nude Almond + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
4) Julie Hewett Lipstick in Biba + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
5) Victoria’s Secret Sheer Gloss Stick in Exposed + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
6) Benefit Full-Finish Lipstick in Lady’s Choice + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
7) Urban Decay Lipstick in Midnight Cowboy + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
8) This is just to show what MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam looks like on its own
