Actor Robert Pattinson had to wear colored contact lenses every day of filming in order to achieve the golden eyes and black eyes described in the book. “At the beginning, [director] Catherine [Hardwicke] visualized Edward in long hair…After studying his face and jaw line in the make-up test, the decision was made to go with short hair to accentuate his amazing jaw line,” said Van Phue.
Van Phue was asked to keep the principals pale, but to stay away from a Sweeney Todd or Interview with a Vampire-type make-up, so she chose a denser, more opaque look for the supporting vampires and a lighter look for the leading man (“He’s got to look fabulous,” she explained). The key was striking a delicate shading balance: “All of the vampires are pale, but I didn’t want them to look ghoulish,” she said. “I didn’t want to contour, but I didn’t want them to fade away, either.”
The biggest challenge on the set was the rain. “We were outside all the time, and it rained the entire time we were there,” Van Phue said. “Most of the shots were exterior, and trying to fix make-up in the rain with wet face and wet brush was difficult.” The experience made her a convert to SK-II AirTouch make-up. “It goes on flawlessly—no smudges or streaks,” she said. “And I accidentally found out it was water resistant.”
