I finally succumbed to all the hoopla and saw the movie Twilight tonight. I get what all the fuss is about! It was very good. I am usually not into teenage angst, but I got caught up in the love story, and by the end of the movie my girlfriend and I were hooked.
So, I am waving my little white flag and admitting that I am a converted Twilight fan. In honor of this event I thought I would do a posting on Bella Swan/Kristen Stewart's makeup in the movie.
To get her natural, daytime look I would suggest using the following:
- To achieve her flawless complexion, use a product that creates a matte finish with a light coverage. Youngblood Mineral Loose Powder Foundation has a wonderful texture, and buildable coverage. Unlike other mineral foundations this product does not have a lot of shimmer, therefore creating a much more natural finish. For oilier skins, use their Mineral Rice Setting Powder.
- For her blush I suggest using a matte blush in a soft shade of pale plum or rose. Bobbi Brown's Brown Berry or Rose Blush are great choices.
- Bella's eyelids were very simple. Try Sephora's All About Eyes Kit. This kit includes the three neutral eye colors bone, tan, and light grey. It also includes a black eyeliner and three brushes to help complete the look. This is an amazing kit to get a simple everyday look like Bella's.
- For Bella's lips I recommend a soft plummy brown lip stain. Cover Girl has an incredable new lipstain that will achieve this look. Try Teasing Blush
There you go fellow vampires!! Now I am off to start reading the books (I know I am late on the band wagon for this one).
