Get the Look : Kirsten Stewart
I recently came across this look Kirsten Stewart was rocking at the Met Ball. Its a beautiful deep red copper smokey eye, much edgier than the usual celebrity smokey eye red carpet look. The colour really makes her green eyes pop and I love that her make up matches her outfit. Her skin is absolutely flawless and really fresh making her eyes the focus and her foundation is quite matt which looks amazing. Here is how you can achieve the look. Remember these colours may not suit all skin tones so when going for a red then you need to test first.
- Moisturise and apply an oil free primer all over the face to ensure your foundation lasts for hours.
- Start with the eyes first to avoid any eyeshadow spill.
- Apply a cream eyeshadow first with a flat brush try Stiletto by Benefit, Maybelline Colour Tattoo Pomegranate Punk or Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Ebloui.
- Take a deep red copper eyeshadow like Mac eyeshadow in Pomegranate and blend with a blending brush into the crease and wing outwards.
- Apply a black Kohl eyeliner try Mac pencil Smoulder or Gosh velvet touch eyeliner (available at Edgar’s if you are based in SA) in the waterline and along the lash line.
- Curl lashes and apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes try Inglot False Lash Effect Mascara, Benefit They’re Real or Diorshow.
- Brush your brows upwards and use a brow pencil to fill in but don’t go dark the brows look really natural in this picture so lightly fill where needed or if you already have a full brow just brush and set with a brow clear gel.
- Conceal under the eyes this will help illiminate any mess and allow you to achieve the shape of the smokey eye.
- Apply a liquid foundation that is not too dewy and has a sheer to medium coverage. Try Makeup Forever HD foundation, Chanel Pro Lumiere or for a drugstore option Revlon Photoready Foundation or Bourjois Healthy Mix.
- Contour the cheek bones using a matt texture like Smashbox Contour Kit as Kristen’s face really is so clean and looks like she is wearing hardly any makeup. (For dark skin models try Mac Mineralise Skinfinish Natural in one of the darker shades).
- Lightly dust a blush on the apple of the cheeks in a peach tone.
- Apply a nude lipliner and then a nude lipstick. Remember to try on the nude lipstick if you don’t have one as everyone has a different undertone.
- Finish off the look by applying a matt finishing powder such as the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow or Revlon Photoready Powder.
I hope you enjoyed the post.
