Our favorite female vamp consistently brings it on the red carpet from head to toe, rocking looks from grungy to glam with virtual ease. The Twilight star, who’ll next be seen as the titular lead in the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman, turns the big 2-2 today and to celebrate, celeb makeup artist Stacey Ellis of Byu-Ti Salon is offering up ways to recreate some of KStew’s best beauty looks. Hell, they worked to attract Robert Pattinson, so you never know whose eye you’ll catch with these styles!
Stewart sported this dark, smoky style at the Breaking Dawn premiere, taking the basic smoky eye and turning it up a notch with a blue hue, which works well with both her dark tresses and blue dress. You can recreate the look using MAC products:
1. Apply a blue-black shade like Black Nehru ($14 on ebay.com) across the lid, blending into the crease and extending out past the outer edge of the eye.
2. Line the entire eye with Eye Kohl ($15).
3. Fill, darken and extend your brows with your perfect eyebrow shade to mimic KStew’s dramatic brows.
1. The key to this look is getting great texture and intricacy in the back while keeping the look very soft in the front.
2. Begin by taking small random sections and braiding them in a traditional braid. Anywhere from 5-9 braids should be sufficient.
3. Pull the remaining hair into a messy bun. To get a fuller bun, gently tease the hair before securing. This gives you extra volume and texture.
4. Once you’ve secured the bun, begin pulling the braids from side to side and secure with small bobby pins. There’s no right or wrong way to do this—the more random and organic the better the look!
