So I gave in to the teenager inside of me and saw Twilight the second day it came out *lol* While British hottie Robert Pattinson looked totally yummy in the movie, I could not help but drool over female lead Bella Swan’s makeup. Played by actress Kristen Stewart, Bella’s look is soft and natural with an innocence that is totally to die for.
To match the descriptions of author Stephenie Meyer, makeup artist Jeanne Van Phue applied neutral makeup on Kristen with a light hand. Kristen also wore brown color contacts every day to achieve the “large, chocolate-brown and menacingly sweet” eyes Bella has.
According to Van Phue, the biggest challenge on the set was the rain. “We were outside all the time, and it rained the entire time we were there,” Van Phue said. “Most of the shots were exterior, and trying to fix makeup in the rain with wet face and wet brush was difficult.” The experience made her a convert to SK-II Air Touch makeup. “It goes on flawlessly — no smudges or streaks,” she said. “And I accidentally found out it was water resistant.”
Here is the list of products Van Phue used on Kristen:
* SK-II Air Touch Foundation in OP-3
* MAC Blot Powder/Pressed in Light
* Visiora Compact Powder in PC 103
* MAC Eyeshadow in Blanc Type, Flute and Wedge
* Smashbox Limitless Lash Mascara in Black Waterproof
* Smashbox Lip & Lid Primer
* Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick in Good to Go
