Cosmetics brand mark invited fans to take a look “Inside the mark Studio” Q & A with their Beauty Ambassador Ashley Greene in New York City on November 11th. The Twilight actress and MTV’s SuChin Pak came to Glass Houses in the Big Apple to answer questions via a livestream and bring awareness about the company and it’s products. Ashley answered fans about Twilight, her beauty inspiration and how she her idea of stylish has changed since high school:
On getting her start in Twilight: “I originally went in for Bella . . . At that point, I didn’t know that much about the book series. But then I read them to prep for the audition and instantly fell in love and was like, ‘I have to be a part of this.’ I was so wrapped up in the story, I was just as fanatic about it as everyone else. So, I auditioned for Bella . . . Actually, I auditioned a few times. They told me I wasn’t right for it and I was heartbroken — I really, really wanted to be a part of the franchise. Then they came back to me with Alice and I absolutely love the character so I auditioned a few more times and against all odds, I got the part. I screamed, I cried. It was very exciting.”
On her favorite red carpet moment: “It’s a tie. I think the first time I felt like a movie star was at the New Moon premiere in Los Angeles. I was wearing this long Prabal Gurung dress and the makeup was perfect and the fans were amazing. It felt right and the memory is really great. The second was on the European tour, the Eclipse premiere in London. I was wearing a silver L’Wren Scott dress and everything looked and felt like a fairytale.”
On her high school style regrets: “I think I overdid everything. When I look at high school pictures, I think I look a little overdone, a bit contrived. I wasn’t completely self-confident yet, hadn’t come into my own.”
On who inspired her: “Of course, my parents are a huge influence in my life. They’ve been there from the get-go and will always be there. But as far as people in this industry, I think that a lot of people already know that Audrey Hepburn is someone that I really look up to. I think that she would be a Mark girl; she’s beautiful inside and out. But more than that, she’s got an amazing style sense but she really used her position to help out in the world.”

Canadian teen superstar Justin Bieber is releasing his own line of super fabulous nail polish. WHAT? You heard that right. The 16 year-old joined forces with Nicole Cosmetics to create the “One Less Lonely Girl” nail polish line, which will be available exclusively at Wal-Mart in December 2010.
Nicole by OPI is releasing the six new shades called One Less Lonely Girl. The shades are called the following: One Less Lonely Glitter (pale purple), Prized Possession Purple (grape), Give Me The First Dance (silver), Me + Blue (metallic blue), O.M.B! (metallic red) and Step 2 the Beat of My Heart (heart shaped specks). They will first roll out in Walmart at the end of the year, followed by Target and Sears in February. (via KnockedUpCelebs)
You can sleep and take a shower with Justin Bieber and now you can share the same nail polish too. I assume Bieber will be showing off his new line accompanied by an impeccable manicure. Seriously!?! Nail polish? REALLY, Bieber? This is ridiculous!!

Ashley Greene is taking over promotional duties from Lauren Conrad for Avon’s Mark line of cosmetics. The Twilight beauty is perfect for this advertising campaign:
“Ashley has a natural beauty, but I love that she experiments with fashion,” said Claudia Poccia, global president, Mark. “She mixes it up and makes it her own.”
“We have this mission of celebrating young women making their mark on the world,” Poccia said. “Ashley has set goals for herself and is achieving those goals.”
Greene’s first ad is now pulled from youtube – which is ridiculous. I understand a company that wants to protect it’s image or is concerned with people altering the ad, but these websites (including us) are actually helping to PROMOTE the product – FOR FREE. Why take it down? It’s Avon for heaven’s sake. They can use all the free promotion to teens they can get.
So let me ask you – does this make a difference to you? Would you buy the product just because of Ashley? Does the fact that the company won’t let you view the ad bug you or do you not care at all?
Sound off below!

A new charitable campaign is underway from Neutrogena. Brand ambassadors Vanessa Hudgens and Hayden Panettiere helped announce the initiative by the cosmetics giant to give away up to $200,000 to various charities and teens can help decide who gets the money. By purchasing the Wave Sonic Power-Cleaner and Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit product, those proceeds will be used by GlobalGiving for disaster relief, education and environmental causes.
“Often people want to participate, but they don’t know how so the fact Neutrogena is opening the door and kids are getting to be a part of something and help the world is an amazing thing to be a part of,” says Panettiere.
Between now and August 23rd, go to Neutrogena’s Facebook page and take the quiz to determine where you want Neutrogena to give that green.

It isn’t often that you find a fifteen year-old as CEO of their own company but Ava Anderson is the exception. The high school-er has launched her own skincare line after finding out that many brands labelled as ‘natural’ were anything but.
After becoming a toxic ingredient junkie and sweeping the cosmetic aisles for pure choices – not to mention Mom and Grandma’s makeup bags – frustration led the precocious blonde to invent her own products that passed all non-toxic standards.
“Through a family friend, we found a manufacturer with research facilities that could develop and produce products to my standards. It was a great challenge to develop these revolutionary formulas and I had to reject many proposed formulations,” says Anderson.
The non-toxic beauty line, called simply Ava Anderson, is available online at her website or you can start your own Ava business, selling her line and making some cash for yourself. Check out this if you are interested in sharing the non-toxic message.

With ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ hitting theaters November 20th, is it any wonder there hasn’t been a complete make-up introduced yet? Well, wait no more. Twilight Beauty is the creation of Cristina Bartolucci, founder of DuWop Brand cosmetics and the formulas to be sold, will also be worn on screen by the cast.
Two collections will be available LunaTwilight and Volturi. For Luna – the color palettes will be Bella, Rosalie, Alice and Victoria (why Victoria? why not Esme?) Volturi will have Immortal Body Shimmer and Deity Body Lotion.
The collection will be sold exclusively thru TwilightBeauty.com (which is not live as of yet,) and no exact date on when you can purchase the products. We will keep you up to date! It’s marketing genius!
Who’s buying? Let us know!
