Chanelling Kristen Stewart: The Unusual Smoky Eye

You all know Kristen Stewart:
The non-traditional (and rather reluctant) starlet was cast as a character named Bella in the ultimate PG-13 romanticism of vampire lore… Hollywood is nothing if without a sense of humor. Kristen Stewart may not possess the inflatable body parts and botoxed features of some of her more notorious counterparts, but she shines nonetheless. I really like this particular ‘smoky eye’ done on Stewart. The look inspired a tutorial from Pixiwoo Samantha, which inspired a look from me:
The ‘brown skin’ trick to this interpretation is to go ‘darker’ with the colors, to acheive the same ratio of skin tone to shadow pigmentation. Stewart is wearing a blue green iridescent shadow, surrounded by a warm brown. Pixiwoo Smantha used MAC clubbing… but I went even darker and used Rock & Republic eyeshadow in Emerge. The surrounding brown is NARS eyeshadow in Mekong. Since Mekong is such an intense brown, I dotted it on with a small eyeshadow brush, then blended it out with a clean fluffy brush. I repeated the step three or four times, until I got my desired shade.

Complete Breakdown: 
FACE: 
Chanel Bronze Universal (used as a foundation)
YSL Cream Concealer in #4
Rock & Republic Blush in Call Me
EYES:
Dior Eye Pencil in Brunette
Rock & Republic Eyeshadow in Emerge
NARS Eyeshadow in Mekong
MAC Eye Pencil in Industrial
YSL Faux Cils Mascara in #1
LIPS:
By Terry Or De Rose Lip Balm
That’s my interpretation. It’s not exact, but then… it’s not supposed to be. I like the mix of unexpected colors for this look. So to Kristen Stewart (and her MUA) I say, Kudos for going your own way.

  1. that's a pretty interpretation. are you wearing lipstick or just the lip balm?

    Thanks! I'm just wearing the balm. I almost went with a nude lip, but decided to keep it simple with just lip balm.

  3. That's a good call because the focus will be on your eyes. That lip balm is certainly a splurge. Yikes!

  4. ShahadaKarim says:

    Oh, you remember the lip balm price. Omg… I had to save up my pennies and say a little prayer before I plunked down the $$$ for it! But I love it, and it lasts all day.

  5. I'm happy that you were able to get it.
