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.

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.
