Kristen Stewart’s Extreme Winged Eye
When: The Aug. 18 American Ultra premiere in L.A.
Why It Matters: Stewart demonstrated how to wear this year’s graphic eyeliner trend like a pro.
“What started out as a basic concept” — an Edie Sedgwick eye, says makeup artist Jillian Dempsey — “gravitated into a much stronger eye than planned.” Just as well, as Stewart’s cat eye became a definitive example of one of the year’s biggest trends.
Dempsey applied jet black khol eyeliner from her own eponymous brand, and the fierce eye combined with the plunging, sequined Zuhair Murad playsuit and a textured, slightly disheveled updo created a rock ‘n’ roll vibe that was signature Stewart.
