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).

I'm a tad obsessed with Kristen's hair, too -- click here for more on KStew's TIFF 2012 â€™do.
