Even on crutches, Kristen Stewart killed it on the Oscars red carpet. Beau Nelson created Kristen Stewart’s lovely makeup look for the evening, while her nails were tended to by celebrity manicurist Ashlie Johnson. Here’s how to get Kristen Stewart’s makeup and nails looks, respectively.
Inspiration: “Kristen’s dress is an ombre rosé colored gown with intricate Swarovski detail. I wanted to create a beautiful rose monochrome look with creamy skin, rose cheeks and rose lips.

I soaked both her hands and feet then used CHANEL Gommage Microperlé
Éclat Maximum Radiance Exfolia ng Gel, massaged her with CHANEL Body Excellence
Nourishing and Rejuvena ng Hand Cream, cleansed the nail and applied CHANEL Base
Protectrice Protecve Base Coat, then two coats of CHANEL color, and finished with CHANEL Extreme Shine Nail Lacquer.”
