Ashley Greene’s Sparkly Smoky Eye at the MET Ball

Ashley Greene was a stunner at MET Ball: Chaos to Couture. To complement her sexy black Marchesa gown, Ashley rocked bold, dark eyes and a nude lip. And boy did she rock it. Ashley’s texturized, messy hair and a dewy, sparkly smoky eye really made her look very punk rock, which was perfect for the MET Ball.It’s one of our favorite makeup looks of the entire night.

Her dewy smoky eye is a must try for anyone who loves dark eye makeup – it’ pretty much the perfect summer time smoky eye around.

Celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali dished on how she created the punk rock look for the Twilight star.

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 colors 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.

To finish Ashley’s look, I gave her a soft, satin nude lip by using Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Biscayne Park. I complemented her brows’ shape by applying Nars Eyebrow Pencil in Jodhpur.
