NY Times’s Tina Turnbow caught up with Ashley at a recent photoshoot for Mark. cosmetics, and they talked style, make-up, beauty plus more! :

I recently chatted with Ashley Greene at a photo shoot for Mark Cosmetics. (She’s worked with the brand since 2010.) The fourth installment in the “Twilight” series, “Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” just opened, and her next two movies are wrapped and ready to go. Fans, take note: she appears this Sunday on the TV show “Pan Am.” Greene was warm and easy to talk to, and we were able to touch on many topics in a short amount of time.

T.T.: You are on the go and I’m sure you have some long days. What are the essentials in your bag?

A.G.: Of course I always have my mark staples with me. They’re in my bag now! Make It Go Away Wipes Makeup Removing Wipes, Good Riddance Hook-Up Concealer, Light Bright Lighten and Depuff Eye Gel and Cheat Sheet Shine Blotters.

T.T.: When do you feel most beautiful?

A.G.: After a great workout. You feel cleansed, destressed and healthy. I feel most beautiful when that rush of endorphins hits. That is a glow that makeup cannot match!

T.T.: When do you feel most sexy?

A.G.: When I have a smoky eye, a tan and am wearing a great pair of high heels.

T.T.: Do you usually stick to one fragrance?

A.G.: I change it up, depending on my mood. I usually choose between mark Celebrate, White Vetiver or Sassy fragrances.

T.T.: Is there a beauty item you’ll splurge on?

A.G.: I will splurge on good skin care. Taking care of my skin is a priority. I’ll spend a lot on a really good brightening mask, which is crucial before a shoot or the red carpet.

T.T.: When you work hard and you’re superbusy, what keeps you grounded?

A.G.: My team. The people you surround yourself with on a daily basis. It’s your support system, and I have a good one.

T.T.: What does your perfect day off consist of?

A.G.: Coming from Florida, I’d have to say kicking back on the beach and listening to the ocean, with some good food and music.

If there is one thing Teen Vogue is all about, it’s girl power! So, naturally, I was super-pumped when I had the chance to do a red carpet interview with Twilight star Ashley Greene at the Avon Foundation Global Voices for Change Gala, which honored those who work hard to eradicate breast cancer and domestic violence against women.

Ashley, who is a Mark for Avon brand ambassador, dazzled in a stunning blue Donna Karan dress, and her makeup and hair perfectly channeled Old Hollywood glamour, thanks to celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh and superstar hairstylist Ted Gibson. Want to know Ashley’s favorite beauty products and tips? Check out our interview below!

Why is the message behind Avon’s gala important for Teen Vogue readers?

The gala tonight is meant to raise awareness for breast cancer and domestic violence. As we all know, breast cancer affects everyone, regardless of age. Some girls are young, so it’s important to be aware and to try and fight for a cure. Many people might not know this, but domestic violence against young women is very common, especially between the ages of 16 to 24. This is unacceptable, and it’s important for young women to be well-educated about these issues and know that there is a place to turn to. There is something they can do.

Has your makeup look changed at all since you started working with Mark?

I’ve been able to explore a lot more makeup-wise than I have in the past! I’m a very simple girl, so it’s been fun to go on photo shoots and to events, and have one of the Mark makeup artists come and work on me. Mark has a lot of fun colors!

You have a bright pink lip on right now. What are your tips on how to wear color?

Keep it sheer and simple, especially if you’re wearing a bright dress, like I am tonight. You don’t want to go overboard with color—just balance it out. If you go heavy on the lips, keep your eyes simple. Another thing: never match your eye color with your dress! I think we’ve all done that at some point in time…

What’s your number one beauty tip?

Less is always more! Accentuate what you have with makeup rather than trying to cover yourself up!

Tonight is all about self-empowerment. What would you say to your teenage self about inner beauty and confidence?

I would have told her, “You’ll grow into yourself and you’ll figure it out.” When you’re young, it can be a hard time because you’re just figuring out who you are. It can make you freak out a little bit—I know I certainly did. I’m now 24, and I just started figuring out who I am. Be patient, you’ll get there!

What’s your must-have Mark product?

Definitely their Light Bright Lighten & Depuff Eye Gel. I fly a lot, so it’s perfect for tired eyes. I also love the Gloss Gorgeous Stay on Lip Stain, which I’m wearing tonight. I love it because you don’t have to apply so much of it.

Dream beauty team Ted Gibson and Mai Quynh gave us the lowdown on what products they used on Ashley. View the slideshow to find out how to get the look! View Slideshow

Where I Go: Ashley Greene [VANITYFAIR]

Fri, 11.11.11 | 11:09:12 am

For Twilight vixen Ashley Greene, star of the upcoming films Breaking Dawn: Part 1 and Butter, the Caribbean islands are sunshine-y mecca—and just a short flight away.

To get away from it all, I go to … Turks and Caicos. It has become one of my favorite vacation destinations. It’s relaxing and fun, with beautiful beaches and fantastic restaurants.

My favorite way to travel there is … JetBlue.

My favorite place to stay is … Gansevoort Turks and Caicos. I stayed there the first time I traveled to the Turks for a photo shoot. The hotel is so beautiful and luxurious that it has become my go-to destination.

My ideal travel companions are … Nothing beats a great vacation with the people I love most. Last trip, I brought along my mom, dad, and best friend.

When I’m in the mood for room service, my favorite order is … Caesar salad with grilled chicken. And a margarita on the rocks.

To stay in shape, my on-the-go fitness regime is … When I’m on vacation, I want to do nothing but relax! I find that activities like Jet Skiing, paddle boarding, and snorkeling are enough.

My suitcase must absolutely contain … Mark’s Gloss Gorgeous lip stains, [which] come in travel-friendly sizes so you can pop them in your purse for an on-the-go beauty pick-me-up. I’m also extremely diligent about protecting my skin, so sunblock is a beach-vacation must. Oh, and an oversize hat is a two-in-one—it’s glamorous and protects your face from the sun.

When it comes to luggage … I travel a lot for work, [so] I pretty much have packing down to a science. It’s a hidden talent of mine.

My favorite travel pastimes are … I travel with an iPad so I can read scripts, books, play Angry Birds on the plane …

Upon departing, I am most happy to … just unplug for a few days. My life has been nonstop over the past couple years, which I’m incredibly grateful for, but at the same time it’s nice to forget about work and spend some quality time with my loved ones in a beautiful paradise.

Ashley Greene Guest-Edits Allure Magazine!

Sat, 10.22.11 | 7:00:02 am

Ashley took over Allure Magazine’s facebook page as a guest editor from Wednesday to Friday (Oct 19 – 21), and she shared beauty tips and advices, her favorite red-carpet looks, and answered some fan questions! Check out some of the highlights below:

BEST BEAUTY ADVICE:

“The best piece of advice anyone’s ever given me when it comes to beauty is that less is more. Makeup should emphasize your features, not cover them up. For example, rather than a full face of foundation, I just spot-treat with concealer (as Mark’s global ambassador, I recommend their Save the Day Concealer Stick) where I need it.” – Ashley Greene

Wear sunscreen every day. My mom taught me this from an early age. If there’s one thing you put on in the morning, it should be SPF to protect your skin. You’ll be thankful later.” – Ashley Greene

Be yourself. Not every trend is right for every person. When I first started stepping out on the red carpet, I let people talk me into wearing things that didn’t represent me. I learned quickly that when you stay true to yourself, you’ll look and feel your best!” – Ashley Greene

FAN QUESTIONS

Ashley Greene: “You guys asked me some awesome questions this week! I’m going to answer my five favorites in the comments right now, and the fans who asked the questions will win $200 worth of hair, makeup, and skin care products from Mark. Here we go!”

Jennifer Scott asked, “Do you have any tips/techniques that I can use to make my fine, flat hair have more volume and oommpphh like yours?” Dry shampoo is my secret weapon! Spray it on dry hair, at the roots, for instant volume. Also, after curling your hair, flip your head over and mist with a flexible-hold hair spray.

Rachel Payment asked, “Hi, Ashley. How do you find time to keep in shape? Do you hit the gym, take classes, or just work fitness into your daily routine? Either way, you look great without looking famished!” Thanks! I do try to live an acti…ve, healthy lifestyle. I hit the gym a few times a week. I constantly look for opportunities to switch it up and keep it fun though! Find something to make exercise enjoyable for you, like a great playlist, an outdoor activity, or working out with a friend!

Maretta Barta asked, “What was your favorite of the Twilight series?” I can’t pick one—it’s like asking a parent to choose a favorite child! I CAN say that I’m really excited to see Breaking Dawn Part 1. The first time I’m going to watch it is at the premiere, on November 14, with the fans!”

Laurel Gawlik asked, “Hey Ashley! So I know that your character is basically responsible for Bella’s makeup at her wedding… Did you learn any new makeup tips for the filming? And if so… could you share them with us? :)” Well, our profes…sional makeup artist did Kristen’s makeup for the scene! But I will give you a general makeup trick I’ve learned from being on set…Use highlighter or a light-colored shadow on the inner corners of your eyes. It will really make them pop! And one of my favorite tools is an eyelash curler because it really opens up your eyes as well.”

Denise Smith asked, “Which of your Twilight castmates do you feel you will always keep in close contact with?” Kellan and I were best friends before the films, and getting to experience the amazing whirlwind that is Twilight together made us even closer. After five films together, the entire cast and crew has really become an extended family, so I hope we all keep in touch.

FAVORITE RED CARPET LOOKS

imagebam.com imagebam.com imagebam.com imagebam.com imagebam.com

The New Moon premiere in Los Angeles, November 2009

“I had a whole different outfit picked out, but a few hours before the premiere, I tried on this Prabal Gurung dress and I knew it was the one! I loved the bold red color and draping at the shoulders. The silhouette was simple, but there was something so glamorous about this dress.” – Ashley Greene

The Eclipse premiere in London, July 2010

“I wanted to wear something fun but glamorous, and this L’Wren Scott was the perfect mix of sparkle and chic. I love that L’Wren makes dresses that women with a few curves can wear.” – Ashley Greene

Ferragamo fashion show in New York City, June 2011

“I felt like we were channeling old Hollywood here. From the hair to the dress to the shoes, this is one of my all-time favorites. The Ferragamo dress is beautiful on its own, but their accessories really completed the look.” – Ashley Greene

Costume Institute Ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, May 2011

“This was my first Met ball, and I absolutely loved this blush-colored Donna Karan gown. I felt like a princess. Donna made this dress specifically for me. My stylist came up with the idea of adding extra volume onto the train the day before the event because the Met ball is the one place you can go all out!” – Ashley Greene

At the 2010 Young Hollywood Awards, May 2010

“I loved this Antonio Berardi dress because it was alluring without showing too much skin. I was winning Style Icon of the Year that night, so there was a lot of pressure riding on the dress!” – Ashley Greene

Ashley talks favorite products, her signature glowing look and how she’s excited to encourage others to make a difference in this new video for mark.!

Screencaps under the cut..

Last night, celebrity hair guru Ted Gibson kicked off Fashion Week with a private fete at his eponymous NYC salon. His guest of honor? Client and Mark cosmetics spokesperson, Ashley Greene. While mixing and mingling with fellow revelers, Greene took a few moments to chat with us about her beauty regimen—and unique hair conditioning treatment.

How do you keep your skin looking flawless for the cameras?

I know people are tired of hearing this, but I think the best thing to do is to drink tons of water, use moisturizer, and wear sunscreen. If you just take care of your skin, it’s a good base for makeup. That’s what I do because when my skin is completely clear it makes me feel more confident and gives me a glow that makeup can’t really emulate.

What’s your favorite facial feature to play up?

Eyes are definitely my favorite! I’m not really a big foundation fan—I don’t like having things on my skin. Eyes are fun to play up because you add a couple lashes, eyeliner, and mascara and you have a really glamorous look.

After your time here in NYC, you’re off to the Toronto Film Festival to promote your new movie, Butter, with Hugh Jackman and Olivia Wilde. What’s your beauty must-have for traveling?

Mark has these really amazing face wipes that I swear by on planes. Because even if I wash my face before I get on a plane I feel like when I get off it, my face is dirty again!

When you’re on a movie set, what do you use to keep your hair looking healthy?

Well, I was really lucky with the Twilight movies because my hair was under a wig the whole time! I put conditioner in my hair before they applied it. My strands soaked up a lot of nourishment during all those hours of shooting!
