There's always been something magnetic about vampires, and with the upcoming release of Twilight, you can expect fang fever to hit a high not seen since the days of my beloved Buffy. Bella Swan, the heroine played by Kristen Stewart, has a fresh, natural look that's simply gorgeous.
"Bella’s description in the novel is very pale and extremely beautiful with large chocolate brown eyes, so she wore colored lenses every day," says Jeanne Van Phue, the movie's head makeup artist. "I also pictured her as a natural beauty, which is exactly what Kristen is. I used a light hand while applying all neutral colors to make her look as though she had no makeup on."
Want to know the items used to get Bella's look? For the straight-from-the-set scoop,
- Lips: Look for a brownish plum lipstick with a creamy finish; Benefit Silky-Finish lipstick in Good-to-Go was used on the set.
- Blush: Bella wears Visiora compact powder in PC 103.
- Face: Van Phue kept shine at bay by using MAC Blot Powder/Pressed in Light on Bella as well as on Edward, played by the dreamy Robert Pattinson.
- Eyes: After preparing eyelids with Smashbox Lip and Lid Primer, Van Phue swept on three neutral shades of MAC eye shadow: Blanc Type, Phloof! and Wedge.
