She might have been making headlines for all the wrong sort of reasons lately - but one thing will never change. K-Stew has great eyeshadow eyes and she looks fantastic with a full on smokey eye.
She often goes for the classic grey/taupe shades, but I love this warmer look and the contrast with her grey eyes so here I'll show you how to get that signature Kristen look.
1. As usual, I primed my eyelid with Urban Decay Primer Potion.
2. On a flat shader brush I took Mac Mineralize Eyeshadow in the colour In The Sun (I believe this was limited edition, any burnt orange shade that you like will work) and applied this all over the lid up as far as the socket line and under the lower lashes.
3. Next on a short shader brush I took Mac eyeshadow Sketch, a deep plum colour, and applied this along the lashline in an elongated shape and took a little under the lower lashes also.
4. Following the same shape again, I wanted to add more depth so I did this with Blackout from the Naked2 palette and an angled brush.
Kristen keeps her skin fresh and natural, so I used Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer as my base and covered any blemishes and dark circles with Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer.
She tends to go easy on the blush so I simply set the make up with Mac MSF in Light and did some light contouring with MSF in Medium Dark to add some warmth.
I kept the lips simple with a slick of Sleek Pout Polish in Bare Minimum.
So there we are - an easy way to get the perfect Kristen look! Let me know what you think and tell me if there's any looks you'd like to see!
