Gilmore Glam, YM Magazine 03.2001 ...

Hollywood makeup artist Lisa Nash-Jones shares makeup secrets from the set of Gilmore Girls.

She may be a complex teen, but Rory's (actress Alexis Bledel) makeup defines simplicity. Lisa preps her skin with an oil-free moisturizer to help prevent breakouts and let her skin breathe. Then, she covers under-eye circles and any lurking blemishes with a creamy concealer. She sweeps cheeks with pink blush, brushes light, peachy-pink shadow on her lids, and adds mascara on her top lashes to brighten her big, blue yes. Lisa finishes the subtle look with clear lip gloss to enhance Rory's natural lip color.

Alexis's 16-year-old character, Rory, wears natural makeup, but she wishes her character would dip into the makeup bag of her on-screen mom, Lorelai (actress Lauren Graham). She especially loves bold lipstick and supershiny gloss for extra-sophisticated lips. To give her eyes a mischievous sparkle, Rory would borrow Lorelai's darker eyeshadows.

Rory's makeup:
Prescriptives Camouflage Cream in Red/Orange Light, $15
Jane Outer Limits Mascara in Brown Out, $3
MAC Eyeshadow in Quarry, $12
Stila Lip Glaze in Peach, $24
Peter Thomas Roth Oil-Free Moisturizer, $40
Nars Blush in Orgasm, $20

Makeup borrowed from Mom, Lorelai:
Bobbi Brown Kir Lip Shimmer, $17.50
Calvin Klein Eye Wash in Misty Mauve, $14
MAC Lipgloss in Clear, $10
