New Interview: How Ashley Greene and Mark Cosmetics Are Helping Women
How Ashley Greene and Mark Cosmetics Are Helping Women
ELLEmagazine It seems inevitable that all actresses, at some point in their careers, will join forces with a charity. And in this case it's Twilight star Ashley Greene who is teaming up with Mark Cosmetics to raise awareness about dating violence and sexual assault via the No More campaign. The organization, mPowerment by Mark, works to help educate young women on the hazards of sexual violence. ELLE.com sat down with the actress (who is also an ambassador for mark and a DKNY campaign model) to discuss her passion for the project; plus we got the inside scoop on which beauty products she adores.
ELLE: You've been with Mark for a few years now, how long have you been working on the No More campaign?
Ashley Greene: As a Mark brand ambassador, I became extremely cognizant of the devastating statistics about dating abuse and partner violence via the mPowerment campaign and knew I wanted to help change those statistics. mPowerment by Mark and the Avon Foundation for Women funded the No More study, which explored dating abuse, partner violence, and sexual assault. I was honored to be part of it and report the results of the survey in a Capitol Hill briefing.
ELLE: What are your go-to makeup products?
AG: I love Mark’s Make It Go Away Wipes and the Got The Goods Foundation. The Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stains are one of my longtime favorites because they aren’t tacky-feeling like most glosses.
ELLE: Do you have a signature look?
AG: When it comes to fashion, I love skinny jeans, a simple top, and a great handbag. When it comes to beauty, I’m all about lashes right now.
ELLE: Is doing your own makeup easier for you now?
AG: I’ve definitely learned more about myself through experimentation over the years–which products work best for my skin and tricks from various makeup artists I’ve been lucky enough to work with.
ELLE: Your skin is amazing, what do you use?
AG: Thank you! Honestly, I just try to drink lots of water and get a decent amount of sleep! I also think exercising and eating fairly clean does wonders for your skin.
ELLE: Are there any skin conditions you struggle with?
AG: I travel a lot so I do everything I can to keep my skin fresh and hydrated. Whenever I fly, I make sure I have a clean face so I can give my skin a break.
ELLE: What about your hair, what products do you use?
AG: Mark’s Locks In Place Hairspray is one of my favorites. Ted Gibson’s Hair Sheets are perfect for travel.
ELLE: You have a movie coming out called CBGB about the NYC nightclub and the iconic punk movement. What was it like to delve into that time period?
AG: That was an amazing time period to transport to during filming–the clothes, the music, the lifestyle–it really helps to get into character when there’s so much that changes from the moment you step onto the set.
