There’s no denying Bella’s (aka Kristen Stewart) eyes in “Breaking Dawn” are truly bewitching! So it’s no surprise one of our favourite fans; Gabrielle, has asked us to show her how to achieve this sultry look. And as there probably others out there who would like to have Bella’s eyes, we thought we’d share with all of you!
Firstly, to get this look you need to prime the eyes well and allow the primer plenty of time to settle and dry. You’ll need to blend the eyeshadow very well to achieve this look and damp skin may result in a patchy result. If you don’t have a primer then blot the eyelids and shade the entire eyelid with a neutral face powder.
Using a eye shadow contour brush, apply a deep shade in the crease of the eyelid and beneath the eye, move your brush back and forth to get a smooth, consistent line and build the depth slowly, then taking a larger, fluffy shadow brush blend the edges out to achieve a smooth smokey effect with no edges visible. We recommend Mineral Eyeshadow Titanium
Apply a white irridescent shadow along the upper eyelid directly above the lashes then take the colour to the centre of the eyes and below approx 1/3 in. To achieve a stronger effect apply the shadow to your hand, dampen your brush and apply wet to the skin. This will also make the shadow stay put longer. We recommend Mineral Eyeshadow Opal.
Apply black eyeliner to the outer corner of the eyes winging the liner to create a thicker outer edge. Ensure your liner follows the entire lash line towards the nose. If you lack confidence applying a liquid liner create the line with a pencil liner first, then follow the line with your liquid liner over the top. We recommend Liquiliner Anisette. Apply lashings of mascara to the outer corners of the eye. Apply several coats allowing the mascara to dry between coats to achieve a “false lash” effect. To help prevent the mascara from clumping keep the strokes smooth and wiggle up the lashes from the base to the tip.
Ensure your brows are tidy and using Browblender Pencil create a lift to the shape in the outer corners. This is key to achieving this vampish look. Brush the brows to soften the effect.
Finish by contouring from the centre brow down the side of the nose.
- This is a “shine free” makeup look so finish by dusting some Mineral Powder Foundation all over the face.
- No blush required if you want to look like a vampire! Instead apply a deep red lip colour and blot to mattify.
- Red Contacts Optional
