More from Buffy (the
||Buffy (aka Sarah Michelle Gellar)
in Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The Plot: Vampires, beware, Buffy's got
a killer new look this season. First there's the cut: a
funky, golden-blond bob that Sarah got last summer for
her role in Scream 2 (how appropriate). In fact Bufy
stylist, Jeri Baker, liked the look so much that she
decided not to change a thing for the TV show. New on the
scene, though, will be Buffy's makeup: Chanel's Beige du
Chanel lipstick (layered with frosty glosses from Stila)
and Hard Candy's Peachy pastel nail color will attract
lots of red-blooded attention all season long (but don't
worry, Buffy can handle it).
Prime-time Tips: To protect Sarah's hair
from daily heat styling, Jeri always starts by spritzing
on a protective conditioner (Neutrogena HeatSafe). Makeup
artist Todd MacIntosh defines Sarah's brows with an
artist's ebony graphite pencil. "It's a tried and
true TV-makeup trick," explains Todd, who adds a few
different colored brown pencils over the gray for
dimension. Sarah's pastel makeup looks more dramatic when
black liner is added to her upper lashes.
Interested in what
Sarah Michelle Gellar wears off the set?
||When she's not slaying vampires, Buffy's
Sarah Michelle Gellar is pretty low-maintenance. The
actress favors the basics, such as natural-looking
makeup. Like her I Know What You Did Last Summer
costar and pal, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle
trusts Philosophy Kiss Me Lip Balm to keep her lips
supersoft. She's also a big fan of makeup artist Francois
Nars' own line of lip glosses (her picks: light,
natural-looking hues). Nailwise, Sarah Michelle's into
Hard Candy polish in Peachy and Smash Box polish in Fog
(a silvery-gray hue), which she's been spotted wearing
both on and off the Buffy set. And when she's
headed out for a night on the town, the actress
accentuates her look with a little glimmer from a roll-on
Sarah Michelle Gellar's
look on the cover of Seventeen magazine:

It Blusher in I'm Innocent, Two Timer Lip
Compact in 911 and Run for Cover Nail Color in Lizard.

Eyes in Ebony; Timeliner for lips in Spice; Super Lustrous
Lipstick in Smoky Rose.

When the sun goes down and it's time to party, Sarah Michelle
Gellar kicks Buffy's tough grrl image. "She likes to have
fun," says makeup artist Sharon Gault. For Sarah's night
look, Gault starts with a concealer, applying it only where
needed (like under the eyes and on blemishes). To intensify
Sarah's hazel eyes, Gault uses copper and peach tones (like Nars
Eye Shadow Duo in Key Largo) or silvery grays and plums (Nars
Tokyo). Brows get definition with a taupe powder eye shadow; lips
shine with a nude pencil topped by a plum color and peachy bronze
gloss (Nars Lip Gloss in Harlow). The finishing touch: silver
body shimmer to give skin a dewy sheen.
To Glam Out Like Sarah
Michelle Gellar (reprinted from Teen)
Try M.A.C. Lip Stick in Gel, a nude neutral for a buff-y look,
Senna Fast Finish Face Powder in Sequins to add shine, Joe Blasco
Lip Style Pencil in Earth to create the perfect pout and Senna
Eye Color in Sesame to make eyes stand out.

A favorite of Sarah Michelle Gellar, Bobbi Brown Essentials Sugar
Shimmer Lip Gloss ($18 each) offers a hint of color, lots of
shine and a yummy vanilla scent. At select department stores.
Nails That'll Slay Him!
(reprinted from Teen)
When Buffy's got a big night of slaying and milk drinking, she
does it in style with Nicole nail polishes (Sarah michelle Gellar
goes for 'em in real life too!). Her faves: Pink Dot.Com and
Purple Persuasion, with a layer or two of Starbright sparkles on
Tips (from Cosmopolitan, Mekup artist
Gucci Westman used Maybelline cosmetics.)
Eyes: Westman used Expert Eyes Eye Shadow
Collection in Delicate Airs. She used lavender from lash
lines to creases, then swept the gray shade into creases
and under outer edges of lower lashes. Lashes were coated
twice with Wonder Curl Waterproof Mascara in Very Black.
Cheeks: She brushed Brush Blush in Berry Sorbet, a
soft rose, onto Sarah's cheeks and along her cheekbones.
Lips: Westman first lined Sarah's lips with
Precision Lip Liner in Nude, Then she applied Hydra Time
Extended Wear Lipcolor in Girlie, a shimmery pale pink.

"Sarah wanted a rock 'n' roll effect using bronzes
to make her green eyes pop," says makeup artist

Expert Eyes Eye Shadow in Silken Taupe) from lids to
creases. Next, line lashlines-top and bottom-with black
liner, then curl lashes and coast with black mascara.

cheeks, then blend rosy cream blush onto apples only. Try
Mabelline Great Wear Blush in Gentle Rose.

Sarah applies moisturizer with sunblock every
morning, and washes off her makeup completely at night. She likes
to get a facial once a month, and also enjoys manicures and
pedicures. Her beauty demon is unruly eyebrows. She fills in the
color with a pencil then tames them with clear mascara or a
spritz of hair spray on an eyebrow brush. "...I like Chanel
Quadra eye shadows because they're sort of all in one and easy to
travel with. For lips I like colors such as MAC Folio
Satin...""I love any kind of vanilla body lotion. I
always have candles in my trailer and for my bath." Sarah
favors natural looking makeup.

The Vampire Slayer or the Lipstick Killer?
Have you seen Sarah Michelle Gellar's Maybeline commercials and
print ads? We hear that Sarah has been picking the makeup shades
that she's been wearing in her tv and magazine ads. The Maybeline
stylists have been bowled over by her great sense of color and by
her application skills! Sarah has even been offering the pros on
the sets of her Maybeline spots some unusual makeup tips, such as
showing them a bizarre way of curling eyelashes with a Q-tip and
some heated baby oil. Did you know that Sarah Michelle Gellar can
apply makeup like a pro?

Rather than covering up her gorgeous skin with loads of make-up, Sarah
uses sheer foundations and boosts her golden glow with blush. Cream blush
is shinier than powder blush, so when it's applied right on the apples
of your cheeks (like SMG's), it catches the light and highlights your
Maybelline True Illusion Makeup Oil-Free SPF10
Maybelline Express Blush in Rose Folie
SMG's eyes aren't huge but she makes them look amazing (and larger) with
mascara and black liner. Rather than drawing the line from the inner corner
of you eye, start at your iris and work outwards. Make the line thicker
at the outer corners. Dabbing shimmer in the inner corners of your eyes
will also make them bigger.
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
Maybelline Cool Effect Cooling Shadow/Liner in Cold Front
And who wouldn't if you got to snog Freddie Prinze Jr! Smiling lights
up your eyes and makes you fun to be around. Slick on the lippy- SMG loves
wearing obvious shades like raspberry, crimson and red.
Maybelline Wear'N Go Lipcolour in Go Crimson
Don't leave home with out giving your look a twist. You'll be amazed how
a pair of cute earrings will dress up even the plainest tee. Here, SMG
glitzed up with beads- try stringing your own necklet together with fishing
wire and glass beads from a craft store.
SHOW SOME SKIN
Bare those bronzed shoulders, baby! Look for tops that have interesting
necklines or snip away at a cute tee to create your own. Pick summery
colours that liven up your skin tone, like mint, blue, yellow and pink.
Turn your skin golden with Clinique Self-Sun Face Quick Bronze, and shimmy
up hair with John Frieda Beach Blonde Gold Rush Shimmer Gel.

To score the dazzling eye effect, L.A. makeup artist Troy Jensen created
for Sarah, blend a golden brown shadow across your lids and along your
lower lashes. "It's as sexy as the dark smoky eye but lighter and
more summery," says Jensen. Then, using feathery strokes, fill in
your vrows with a pencil in a matching huge and cost both top and bottom
lashes with black mascara.
