Kristen Stewart Purple Smoky Eye

Some people can pull of a heavy eye makeup look with a dark red lip. Is Kristen Stewart one of them? I probably spent too much time looking at photos of Kristen from her appearance at the AFI Fest premiere of ‘On The Road’. She wears Balenciaga (by the way, have you heard the news about Nicolas Ghesquière leaving Balenciaga?!), which suits her, even if I deeply dislike the fit of the pants. The pleats are a disaster.

But back to Kristen Stewart's makeup. I was reminded of Lisa Eldridge's editorial chocolate-berry look, where she commented about toning it down a bit for a brunette. We've seen Kristen wear a red lipstick before, and she looked fabulous, so I don't think that's the issue. It's probably a case of doing a bit too much of a good thing- the edgy look is perfect for Kristen, but it needs to be tweaked and balanced so it doesn't look weird.

What do you think?

  1. No, I don't like the make-up (I think it makes her look old, and her lips extra thin). And I don't like the white & black ensamble either : the top is no fit for those pants, and the pants don't fit Kristen. Why, oh why ? - there must be so many visagists around. Or simply a good friend - or a mirror.

  2. I really love the look. It's different and fresh - I'm bored of the black cat-liner, with MAC's Wedge in the crease and red lips.

  3. Ahhhhh,a giant,horriible bra!!! Love the eyes,anyway,but not the harsh red lips.

  4. Isn't the rule of thumb, a dramatic eye OR lip, but not both at the same time? Sounds like good advice. This is the first time in long time that I'm not digging Kristen's look. I usually think she looks fabulous and she's becoming a bona fide beauty.

  5. Waaay too much on the face, not enough below.

  6. I don't actually mind the darker lip so much as the clash of the tones - the lipstick looks too orange for that shadow. ~~nozknoz

  7. No; I don't like the makeup or the clothes.

  8. Not loving the iffy bra top and the MC Hammer-reject pants. The makeup has an edgy feel that someone with a more interesting, expressive face could pull off (Agyness Deyn, perhaps?). KStew still looks bored and the first picture was hideous - she looks like she has malaria, or Stage IV dengue fever.
