Kristen Stewart may be known for her low-key off-duty look, but when it comes to the red carpet, she always knows how to turn up the glam factor. Last week, Kristen attended the premiere of A Better Life at the Los Angeles Film Festival. While she stayed true to her unfussy style on this occasion by wearing a plain black tee and jeans, she put together a glamorous beauty look with a little help from makeup artist Fiona Stiles. Read on for the scoop on how they created her smoky violet eyes.
According to Stiles, they started off with clean, moisturized skin and then, using a synthetic brush, swiped on CoverGirl’s NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Chamois ($11.99), blending it with a damp sponge for sheer coverage. Then, they applied a light coat of CoverGirl’s Professional Loose Powder in Translucent Light ($5.99) to set the foundation. To finish, Stiles applied CoverGirl’s Cheekers Blush in Natural Rose ($3.99) to the cheeks.
On the lips, Stiles lined the lips with CoverGirl’s Lip Perfection Lip Liner in Smoky ($6.99) and then applied a light coat of CoverGirl’s Lip Perfection Lipstick in Heavenly ($6.99) for a little shine.
As for the eyes, Stiles smudged Cover Girl’s Smoky Shadow Blast in Purple Plum ($8.49) from the lash line to above the crease, blending it toward the brow bone. Then, she used a dab of color from CoverGirl’s Exact Eyelights Eye Brightening Shadow Palette in Vibrant Greens ($7.49) to add depth and definition. To finish, Stiles lined the eyes with CoverGirl’s Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Blackfire ($7.99) and then added two coats of CoverGirl’s LashBlast Mascara in Very Black ($8.99).
