Just because the domain is expired doesn't mean the DNS server doesn't
have the entry for it anymore.  Assuming that both the above domains use
the same DNS servers:

peter at peter-desktop:~$ dig @NS1.NETWAVEDESIGN.COM www.ny-beauty-secrets.com


www.ny-beauty-secrets.com. 86400 IN	A

So the line you would add to your hosts file would be: www.ny-beauty-secrets.com ny-beauty-secrets.com
