KRISTEN STEWART attended the 2012 MTV Movie Awards — in a metallic dress while sporting a voluminous wavy mane along with some seriously smoky eyes — and took home the awards for ‘Best Kiss’ and ‘Best Movie’ with her “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” costars. To get her both red carpet and camera ready, makeup artist Jillian Dempsey created a bold look that would magnify on-screen.
Jillian and Kristen were going for “edgy glam, with a youthful twist”, and to achieve that style Jillian played up her eyes with heavy liner, lots of mascara and an overly dramatic, tapered eye. She used her own Jillian Dempsey Professional for Avon Smokifier in ‘Very Black’ and Diorshow Mascara in ‘Rich Black’.
First she blended the dark bronze NARS Matte Eye Shadow in ‘Honesty’ over a burgundy liner for a rich appearance.
Jillian used the Laura Mercier Kohl Liner in ‘Black Violet’.
For a glossy, almost wet look on her eye lids, Jillian dabbed just a drop of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream.
When it came time for putting the finishing touches on, Jillian applied Josie Maran Argan Cream Blush in ‘Sun Kissed’ for a nude cheek look. Additionally she also wanted a natural lip for Kristen so to complete her look, a few swipes of Clinique Butter Shine Lipstick in ‘Baby Baby’.
