Ashley Greene opens up about how ‘Twilight’ changed her in the new Marie Claire.

Ashley Greene covers the November issue of Marie Claire, and inside the magazine she has lots to say about ‘Twilight’ and how it’s changed who she is. The actress reveals how she’s dealing with her newfound fame, and more importantly how she copes with it.

“It was a hard adjustment going from zero to 100 in a day,” the 25-year-old “Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ star tells the magazine. “But it was also hard to talk to [friends], because you don’t want to be a jerk. After the movie [“Twilight”] came out, some people said, ‘You changed.’ And I said, ‘I haven’t changed, dude. Your opinion of me has changed because I’m working on this film.’ Trust me, my parents would let me know.”

But although some of her pals couldn’t deal with her blossoming career, Greene says she understands that it’s hard to keep in touch with people when you’re always traveling or on location.

“I’m always here and there — everyone in my industry is — and that’s why a lot of relationships are fleeting,” she explains. “I’ve gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realize is hard on friends and kind of selfish.”

As for her love life, Greene says that’s a struggle too, considering she doesn’t have enough time to devote to romance.

“You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie,” she says. “It’s not like you’re going to fly out and see them, because it’s not serious enough for that.”

As for how she’s adjusting to her life in the spotlight, Greene admits stardom has its perks, including first-class plane tickets.

“‘Twilight’ has ruined me,” Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in the hit franchise, reveals. “When this is all over, flying internationally is going to be very hard for me. It is just not worth it to buy a first-class ticket, because of the cost.”

Still, the money she saves from those international flights will go toward maintaining her new life.

“I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save,” she says. “And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.”

I’ve met Ashley a couple times, and she is shockingly beautiful. She’s tiny and her skin looks like porcelain. She is beyond nice….seems like a really good person. She looks gorgeous in Marie Claire as well!

Below are mark’s Celebrity Makeup Artist Mai Quynh’s makeup tricks for creating Ashley’s gorgeous look.

Face:
”I began by applying mark Calm & Composed Super-Soothing Moisturizer all over Ashley’s face. After creating a clean, moisturized base, I used mark Primed for Perfection Face Primer. Then, I applied mark Min-A-Real Cream-To-Powder Foundation in Natural using the mark Foundation Brush. To take care of any imperfections, I used mark Good Riddance Hook Up Concealer in Light/Medium under Ashley’s eyes and around her nose.”

Cheeks:
“For a soft, healthy flush, I brushed on mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Cheeky using the mark Foundation Brush to the apples of Ashley’s cheeks. Then, I dusted mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder in Buff/Natural to set the look. For an extra glow factor, I layered mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in Cameo Glo using the mark Blush + Bronzer Brush.”

Eyes:
“I prepped Ashley’s eyes with mark Please Hold Eye Primer in Light/Medium. Next, I applied mark Keep it Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Exposure to her eyelid, from her lash line to her crease using the mark Flat Eyeliner Brush. Then, I applied mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Java to her crease, blending it outward. To begin lining Ashley’s eyes, I used mark Keep it Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Entourage along her top and bottom lash lines using the mark Flat Eyeliner Brush. I extended the liner upwards and outwards for a cat eye effect. I finished Ashley’s eyes with two coats of mark Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Black to her top and bottom lashes.”

Lips:
“For Ashley’s lips, I used mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Toasty and mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Lip Gloss in Swell to create a gorgeous, natural smile.”

Get the Look: 2012 People’s Choice Awards

Did you catch the People’s Choice Awards last night? In case you missed it, sexy beach waves and pale pink polish were hit trends on the red carpet. Below are tips from Butterfly Studio Salon stylist, Vanessa Fernandez, and As U Wish Nail Spa owner, Skyy Hadley on how you can re-create the looks of Julianne Hough, Ashley Greene and Ashley Benson!

To give yourself a red carpet ready manicure at home in minutes follow these easy steps from celeb manicurist, Skyy Hadley.

  1. Remove any nail polish and wash your hands. Always start a manicure with clean hands.
  2. File your nails. I recommend squoval shaped nails for the winter. Start with the square shape and tilt the file underneath the corners and file back and forth from the underneath up. This will gradually round out the edges. If your nails are too square during cold winter months they can crack and break easily.
  3. Lightly buff your nails to remove any ridges.
  4. Rub a cuticle oil or cream on your cuticles, you can use olive oil or Vaseline if you don’t have cuticle oil, and push your cuticles back with a cuticle pusher. This will lengthen your nail and give a clean look.
  5. Apply a thin layer of base coat to all nails.
  6. Apply two even coats of pale pink or nude polish to your nails.
  7. Always finish with a layer of clear top coat to extend the life of your manicure and give it that professional shine.

Julianne Hough’s Sexy Bouncy Waves

  •  Begin with clean towel dried hair
  •  Apply a volumizing mousse like the Kerastase Mousse Substantive before blowing out your hair with a 1 ½”round brush to create bouncy waves.
  • Using a 1 1/2″-1 1/4″ wide curling iron, grab 1″ vertical sections of hair and curl away from your face.
  •  Shake your hair out from underneath to create a sexy bounce
  • Finish with a medium hold hair spray like Shu Uemura’s Sheer Lacquer.

Ashley Greene’s Seductive Long Waves

  •  Begin with clean towel dried hair
  • Twist 1″ sections of hair away from your face going all around your head and apply a curl enhancing cream like the Shu Uemura Kaze Wave and air dry or diffuse until 90% dry.
  •  Apply a heat protecting spray like the Kerastase Fibre Architecte to protect hair from the heat of the iron and create a shinier look.
  • Using a 1” wide curling iron, grab 1″ random vertical sections of hair and wrap around barrel and curl away from your face.
  • Run your hands through when done for separation.
  •  Finish with a medium hold hair spray like Shu Uemura’s Sheer Lacquer.

Ashley Benson’s Textured Waves

  • Begin with clean towel dried hair. Wrap hair in towel to remove excess water and to start creating texture
  • Use a light pomade such as Magic Move Light and twist random sections of hair to create more texture.
  • Use a blow dryer to set each section by twisting and applying heat at the same time. If needed, use a clipless curling iron about 3/4″-1″ to set in waves by wrapping sections around the barrel away from face and when releasing each piece pulling on it to make more of a stretched out wave.
