Ashley Greene evoked old-school Hollywood glam at the Avon Foundation Global Voices for Change Gala Wednesday night in New York City. The 24-year-old “Twilight” actress wore her reddish-brown hair in retro curls and paired it with top-lined lids, bronzer and pink lips.
Celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson shares his step-by-step instructions on how he created the starlet’s hairdo:
• To start, blow dry hair. Then, apply Ted Gibson Build It Blowdrying Agent.
• Next, work in Ted Gibson Fix It Gel from the mid-length of the hair to the ends, and then blow dry with a medium round brush.
• Create a deep side part, and then cural all sections of the hair, turning the iron toward the face.
• Finish with a spritz of Ted Gibson Beautiful Hold Hairspray, then brush hair out again.

As for the makeup:

To complement the Breaking Dawn actress’ stunning evening wear and gorgeous side-parted waves, her pro, mark celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh, created a makeup look that screamed Hollywood glam: flawless skin, soft lips and boldly lined eyes. Read on to get the full-how to.

“I started by lining Ashley’s lash lines, inner eyelid and crease with a variety of shades from the mark On The Dot Eye Color Compact” Quynh tells Us Weekly. (The nine-shade compact includes deep brown and violet, among other colors.) “Next, I applied mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Entourage (a sliver and black duo) to create a glamorous eye. I finished Ashley’s eyes with two coats of volumizing mascara.”

To create the star’s flawless complexion, Quynh applied a moisturizer and then evened out her skin tone with a cream-to-powder foundation and dabbed concealer around her nose and eyes. On her cheeks she used mark Glowdacious Illuminating Powder in Prettied Up ($12, meetmark.com).

To finish off the look, “I used mark Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain in Bare for a natural-looking pout,” Quynh tells Us.
