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?
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?
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!
