Hit List: Kristen Stewart’s Best Red-Carpet Brows and Any-Age Makeup Ever

by Janine on 10 September 2012 · 19 comments

I’ve spent more time than I ever expected looking at Kristen Stewart red-carpet photos. I blame celeb makeup artist Mai Quy, a pro whose client list includes Ginnifer Goodwin, Penelope Cruz and Emma Stone. Mai was responsible for KStew’s TIFF 2012 glow at the premiere of On the Road (yes, I’ve got the details).

I’ve never seen the young actress look more beautiful, nor more… grown up. Could be that she’s lost some weight — her face is more angular, as you can see in the opening image. Or maybe it’s her perfectly grown-in brows. Or it could be Mai’s deft artistry with a look any age can wear. We’ve not seen Kristen in makeup quite like this before. A gallery:

See? Kristen is more often smoky-eyed, with the exception of her Cosmopolis-premiere makeup. And yep, the last three shots, from the On the Road premiere, showcase her best brows.

Mai used mark. to do Kristen’s TIFF 2012 makeup. And note the eye shadow application, which is very much like this one I called out last week (it’s like learning a new word — suddenly you see/hear it everywhere).

Skin:
mark. For Goodness Face Antioxidant SPF 3o Lotion ($20)
mark. Primed for Perfection Face Primer ($12)

Face:
mark. Min-A-Real Cream-to-Powder Foundation ($20) in Light #4
mark. Good Riddance Hook-Up Concealer ($8) in Light/Medium under eyes and around the base of the nose
mark. Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint ($7) in Cheeky
mark. Matte-nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder ($10) in Light all over the face to set makeup

Eyes:
mark. Keep It Going Longwear Eye Liner and Shadow ($12) in Naturalist — just the neutral shade — from lash line to crease and along the lower lash line
mark. I-mark Wet/Dry Eye Shadow ($7) in Chenille blended onto lid, into the crease, and smudged into lower lash line
mark. Lash Act Build and Define Mascara ($12) in Blackest Black on upper lashes (two coats)

Lips:
mark. Make It Rich Lip Crayon ($14) in Peony.

I’m a tad obsessed with Kristen’s hair, too — click here for more on KStew’s TIFF 2012 ’do.

What do you think of Kristen’s TIFF 2012 makeup? Which of her recent red-carpet faces is your favourite?

In Canada, mark. makeup is available via avon.ca.

First time hearing about Mark. Interesting.

When mark. first launched, the company told editors that it was on par with MAC quality. And it seemed pretty good — great shades, good textures, cute concepts. Funny thing is that Ashley Greene is (was?) the face of the brand, which didn’t really seem to matter to many of us.

Mai Quy is the official artist for mark., it looks like — her fresh new look on scandal-dogged KStew was just the ticket, huh?

That’s because Ashley Green is laaaaaaaaaaame.

I’m not a big fan of KStew but I do LOVE this look, and I am coveting her brows.

This look is the reason I spent time looking at KStew’s recent red-carpet photos — I’ve never done that before! It’s my new favourite makeup application. And yep, those brows! (Kristin’s Twighlight brows have always bothered me).

I would like this, but the product used to define her brows is FAR too warm and orange-toned, which is distracting.

Hmm I think I’ll have to pay closer attention to Mark. Her makeup looks really pretty here.

I’m seriously obsessed with this makeup application. LOVE the eyes, and that lip!

Her makeup looks great, but in some of these photos, she looks so thin! I was a little bit taken back. Her skin looks nice and fresh though. Kudos to Mai

I thought she looked quite thin, too, Kathleen. That big affair scandal had broken not long before TIFF; might have been the stress of that mess. And I adore this makeup. In fact, most of her makeup lately has been off-the-charts great — I should do a post!
