Sultry, edgy, lash-y,” makeup artist Jillian Dempsey says, when we asked her to describe the look she created for Kristen Stewart at the New York premiere of Stewart’s new movie, Camp X-Ray. “The look is pretty lash-y, don’t you think? Her eyes are so expressive—I definitely wanted to play them up.” And play them up, she did. Stewart’s final eye makeup look was an ethereal combination of inky black eyeliner, an iridescent smoky eye, and a full, lush fringe—a smoky eye from our haziest daydreams.
Celebrity Hair Stylist Giannandrea wanted to have fun with Kristen’s new short haircut while keeping her look feminine, fresh, and edgy. The result was top notch!
“I wanted to give Kristen a chic and effortlessly stylish new cut, something to perfectly reflect her personality. The proportions are extremely important with a short haircut. I wanted to preserve the femininity while still bringing an edge to the look, and using a combination of thinning shears and a razor allowed me to achieve this balance. And of course, we wanted to have fun with it!”

What is your beauty routine like?
I make sure to clean [my skin] thoroughly. I use Proactiv Cleanser for teenagers, that suits me well, I don’t know what will happen if I stop. Then I apply a foundation and a Dermalogica moisturizer, or a care given by a makeup artist. I think it’s good for the skin to vary the products.
