New Moon Star Gets Her Hair Twilighted

Christian+Serratos+twilights+1 New Moon Star Gets Her Hair TwilightedWell-known in the industry for his cutting-edge style, hairstylist Stuart Gavert was contacted to do the hair color for the cast of the major motion picture Twilight – including Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart!

Earlier this month, New Moon‘s own Christian Serratos (who plays Angela) visited the Gavert Atelier Salon and received her very own set of “twilights.”

Inspired by the movie and its stars, Gavert launched a concept of color on highlighting called twilights; the idea is to create highlights that can prolong visits to the salon for touch-ups (perfect for long months of filming) and to use a process that is not damaging to the hair.

For her day of beauty, the super sweet actress preferred pizza and Diet Coke for lunch and had a fun time being pampered.

Serratos added in some pieces to lengthen her “lob” for Monday’s premiere of New Moon.

Ashley Greene’s New Moon Premiere Makeup

ashley+greene+new+moon+premiere+2 Ashley Greenes New Moon Premiere Makeup

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.

Stila Mini Lip Glaze Collection: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

stila+lip+glaze+collection Stila Mini Lip Glaze Collection: Holiday Beauty Gift GuideJohn Keats once wrote, “Beauty is truth. Truth is beauty.” Emily Dickinson said, “Beauty is not caused. It is.” What’s my beauty philosophy?

“A woman can never have too many lip glosses. Impossible.”

Which is why I’m kicking off Spoiled Pretty’s 2009 Holiday Beauty Gift Guide with this purty pick. The Stila Mini Lip Glaze Collection is a set of eight bite sized glosses that give you non-stop, 1.21 gigawatts of shimmer and shine.

The collection includes four best-selling favorites and four limited edition shades to outfit your lips:

* Starfruit: neutral pink-coral with white pearl
* Kitten: nude pink champagne with golden pearl
* Cranberry: sheer brick red
* Blackberry: deep purple wine
* Plum Fairy: sheer plum with pink pearl
* Candy: sheer pink-coral with subtle rainbow shimmer
* Marmalade: sheer peach with pink and white pearl
* Pinkle Twinkle: sheer mid-tone pink with rainbow shimmer

Every shade in this set is a contender, but I’m crowning Pinkle Twinkle the champ. She K.O.’d me with her sparkly sass and cotton candy scent.

If you have a lip gloss lover in your life, you can’t go wrong by stuffing this in her stocking. Just make sure to pick up two sets, because there’s no way you’ll be able to resist their charm.

The Stila Mini Lip Glaze Collection ($25) is available at Sephora and stilacosmetics.com.
