Kristen Stewart's Makeup Artist On New Moon' Talks About Creating The Star's Iconic Looks


Robin Matthews is the makeup artist behind Kristen's New Moon, Eclipse, and Runaways look. Check out what she told Nylon about the fabulous KStew:

What’s harder: making someone look like a rock star or a vampire?
That’s a good question. Probably The Runaways was a bit harder, because it was recreating real people, icons. It was hard to live up to—although Bella is pretty much a teen icon, too.

You just finished doing Kristen’s makeup for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. How would you describe Bella’s look?
Her look was so tricky, because she had to be a naturally pretty girl, but
she’s also surrounded by these mythical creatures. She needs to be
plain, but beautiful at the same time. It’s all about the flawless skin
and a naturally pretty cheek color. The number one question I get is
the lips—and I can’t give it up yet!

Who’s your beauty icon?
Kristen Stewart—[she’s] the most chameleon-like actress that I’ve ever witnessed. She can play a beauty or a wreck at the same time if she
wants to.

Why do you think that is?
The mainstay of it is her acting ability, but she just has a bone structure
that allows her to be morphed into other things easily. It’s what she
does with the physicality of [acting]. We had just finished shooting New Moon a week prior to The Runaways,
and I started noticing that she had a little bit of a hunch—I never
really noticed that she stood like that and walked like that. And
[then] I realized that’s how Joan [Jett] stands, because she plays the
guitar. We shot Eclipse two days after The Runaways [ended], and the hunch was gone!

Thanks for posting, it's always great to read how a lot of professionals are in awe of our beloved Kristen. There's just so many jealous people who refuse to see and admit what a beautiful,natural and down to earth girl she is. She could always act like a diva, she definitely is a star but she 's very humble and shy and people take that as being bitchy,well too bad, we her fans love her for what she is and so does her bf,Rob so suck it up haters!LOL
