Ever since Kristen Stewart was cast as Bella Swan in the first Twilight film, fans have fallen more and more in love with her as the fair-skinned, star-crossed lover. Now, in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Stewart makes her final appearance as the heroine of Stephenie Meyer's novels and Melissa Rosenberg's adapted screenplays.
During the course of production of the last two Twilight films, make-up artist Stacey Panepinto has been at Stewart's side, helping transform the young actress into the beautiful Swan. Stewart Beauty Breakdowns have been among the most commonly requested for Makeup411.com.
At the close of this project, Panepinto reflected on her time as Stewart's right-hand beautifier: "Working with Kristen is such a privilege," she said. "She is a passionate, talented and generous actor. I am blessed to call her my friend and to have been a part of such a memorable movie franchise."
Editor's note: This breakdown originally appeared in Issue 100 of Make-Up Artist magazine.
"Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Wheat was applied to her eyelids to help keep the make-up on for long hours. Then Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Variation was used to create a dramatic eye for Bella [as the] vampire. (We also dabbed a bit of the white Chanel eye shadow in the corners of the eyes to help them pop.)"

Thank you so much for this breakdown! I can only imagine the number of requests you've been getting - Kristen Stewart's makeup in BD2 was simply stunning. Stacey P. is a true artist. Quick item to clarify - did she use Chanel's Variation OR VariationS eyeshadow quad? I only ask because Variation includes taupes/plums and VariationS includes bronzes/browns. KStew's eye makeup seemed to be much more brown in tone on film. Thank you.
The Chanel Les 4 Ombres shade is #37 Variation, as shown on Chanel's website here: http://www.chanel.com/en_US/fragrance-beauty/Makeup-Eyeshadow-LES-4-OMBRES-89134. Please keep in mind that often filmmakers change the color/tones of a film, so the make-up colors don't always appear on film as they do in real life.
