Va-va-voom! For the 2013 SAG Awards, Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss shed her clean-cut Peggy Olsen image for a smoldering Parisian-inspired look. “I love working with Elisabeth because she always likes to try something new. I don’t think we’ve ever done the same beauty look twice!” makeup artist Jamie Greenberg told InStyle.com exclusively. “We wanted to keep the look down to Earth with a chic French street touch.” Using the eyes as the focal point, Greenberg complemented the look with a sheer pink lip and glowing skin from head to toe. InStyle.com got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Moss’s award show prep routine. Click through our gallery to go backstage with the star, and to shop the exact products she used!
We loved host Kaley Cuoco’s super-feminine look at the People’s Choice Awards, and we’ve got exclusive insider access to her pre-show primping party! Celebrity Makeup Artist Jamie Greenberg, using mark products, told us the inspiration for the look: it was all about girly mod. “We channeled Sophia Loren and Barbie,” Greenberg told InStyle.com. “We had the best time ever! Kaley made these pink sweatshirts for us that said ‘Touchdown’ on the back and we brought t-shirts that said ‘Team Cuoco.’” We asked her how she gave Cuoco that pitch-perfect rosy complexion with a hint of shimmer. “I started by applying mark Min-A-Real Cream-to-Powder Foundation in Light Medium 5 ($18; meetmark.com) all over Kaley’s face, layering on Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes Face Palette ($16; meetmark.com), and Just Blushing Powder Blush in Lovespell ($9; meetmark.com) to create a gorgeous natural glow.” Click through the gallery for more exclusive photos and to see how to get the look!
At the Los Angeles premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, Ashley Greene played off of the blush tones of her custom Donna Karan dress with a high-shine pink lip. Thanks to the help of her makeup artist Vanessa Scali, we tracked down the exact products the actress wore! “I wanted to continue this romantic feeling [of her dress] with her makeup,” said Scali, who paired mark. Make It Rich Lip Color Crayon in Naturally ($11) with the In a Whirl Marbelized Lip Gloss in Pink Souffle ($8). Rather than creating a stark, flesh-toned base, the warm nude crayon mirrored Greene’s natural lip color, while the shiny gloss added extra dimension. Pick up both products at meetmark.com.

Now that’s what we call flower power! At the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of On the Road, Kristen Stewart accented her floral Zuhair Murad dress with a sleek hairstyle and a bold magenta lip. We love how the color mirrors the blooms on her dress without being too matchy-matchy, so we tracked down the exact shade she used! “For Kristen’s lips, I applied the mark. Make It Rich Lip Color Crayon in Peony for a gorgeous smile,” said her makeup artist Mai Quynh. The shade comes in a streamlined pencil shape, meaning you don’t have to worry about finding a matching lip liner, and the buildable coverage allows you to create a number of versatile effects. Pick one up for yourself over at meetmark.com for $11.

We love how Heather Graham matched her lip color to her raspberry Burberry shift dress at last night’s Cambodian Children’s Fund fundraiser in New York City, so we caught up with the actress-turned-philanthropist to get the inside scoop on her bold pout. “My makeup artist gave this to me, it’s mark,” she said, taking a lip pencil from her clutch. While Graham’s exact shade is yet-to-be-released, the mark team directed us to their Gorgeous Gloss Stay On Lipstain in Vibe ($11 at meetmark.com), which packs the same color punch in a glossy finish. Tell us, do you ever coordinate your lipstick to your outfits?

The designer teamed up with mark cosmetics, whose beauty team styles Minkoff’s runway models, to create a $60 faux leather bag. “It’s incredibly affordable, but it still has the look and feel with our signature studs and the great cross-body strap,” Minkoff told InStyle.com at the bag’s New York City launch party. The designer offered up some season-spanning styling tips for the item, too: ”It can go over a long coat, or it can be a great festival bag in the summer.” How versatile!
