Arriving for the world movie premiere of Snow White And The Huntsman in London recently, Kristen Stewart dazzled in a dramatic gown from the Marchesa Fall 2012 Collection.
The black lace gown featured a sheer skirt with nude panels and with skulls and cross bones woven into the fabric, and showcased the star in true, dark gothic glamour style. Her hair was swept up in a bun secured with a gold ribbon entwined in the knot, and jewellery was kept minimal.
Kristen ensured that her porcelain skin was kept 'as white as snow' with minimal makeup.
To achieve this look, start with Velvet Veil Primer to even out the surface texture of the skin and create a smooth base for the foundation. It is important when applying lighter tone foundations to achieve the most flawless finish possible, because pale foundations can tend to look streaky if not applied carefully.
A few drops of Candleglow Pearly Pink mixed into Jojoba Liquid Foundation White Ivory will also highlight porcelain skin beautifully. Use Pearly Pink as a highlighter all over the eye area. Thunder Eyeshadow applied and blended well up to the contour line and under the lower lashes, with Gel Eyeliner Black Out applied to the upper and lower lash line, keeps the look understated.
Brows are beautifully arched, well defined and deepened with Indelible Brow Liner - Dove Grey. Only a touch of blusher is needed on the apples of the cheeks, with Mineral Blusher - I'm Blushing. No Baggage patted around the orbital area and top of the cheekbones lifts and brightens the skin. For lips, apply Lipstick - Au Natural, topped with Lipgloss Pout Popper - Quiver.
