Get the Look: Kristen Stweart

Being female and fifteen, I, of course, am hyper-aware of Kristen Stewart's recent hike in fame. Playin Bella Swan opposite Edward Cullens and Jacob Black? (Personally I am all team Jacob- but this is v. controversial, so moving on). Her great acting and good looks are one thing- but I have always admired the make up she wore.
Effortless, like Bella, who never tries too hard, but yet still very feminine, soft and beautiful.
Here I would layer some shimmery lilac with some sculpting powder- like Mac Shadester. Using a all-over brush like Mac 239 I would go over the whole lid with a wash of lilac, and follow up by using shadester on the crease and dragging it forward to the bridge of the nose and the sides of the nose to give it definition.
Under the eye I would use 05 Bourjois, which is a shimmery taupey brown eyeshadow and dust it under my eyes. I would line the bottom with gold eyeliner, and finish off by curling the eyelashes and applying Maybelline Full n' Soft mascara.
Here, some Benefit Posietint followed by a thin layer of clear or muted pink gloss with shimmer would be ideal. If you want a longer lasting colour, pick a light pink lip liner, fill in the lips and then apply some shimmery gloss.
Kristen never fails to have flawless skin. Here, it is matte but still somewhat dewy. I would use concealer (Barbara Daly for Tesco is reccomended) before applying a layer of foundation or BB cream. Max Factor Colour Adapt has a somewhat low coverage and so looks very natural. This, with a layer of Everyday Minerals Original Glo would be brilliant. Otherwise, some Olay Multi-Radiance Daily Fluid and a foundation like Revlon Colourstay would work.
This should be followed up by a little bit of contouring using bronzer. Apply a bronzey pink brush like Nars Orgasm to the cheeks, and highlight using Benefit High Beam (or a drugstore alternative- MeMeMe Beat the Blues) on the middle of the nose, the brow bone, the chin, the cupid's bow, and just under the eyes as well as the inner corners of the eye.
