As far as bridal make-ups go, Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian can hardly compete with Kristen Stewart, best known for her role as Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga films. In Breaking Dawn, the fourth installment of the five-film franchise, Bella finally marries her vampire boyfriend, Edward Cullen, in what may be the most anticipated wedding of 2011. Make-up artist Stacey Panepinto executed the look, which was a departure from Bella’s previous style. “In all of the movies, Bella has a very natural, almost no make-up look. This was a chance for us to transform her look to something a bit more glamorous while maintaining what was true to the character,” said Panepinto. “I love this look because it’s simple yet elegant.”

This is truly wonderful makeup work, just beautiful. I was ecstatic to find it on your site! I didn't dare hope that the film (or whoever restricts the details that are divulged on the film) would give us a whole beauty breakdown (especially of the wedding makeup), and they have. Since they have been so generous, are they now willing to reveal Robin Mathews makeup from New Moon? I have loved seeing this beauty breakdown and would love to see more!
I have already worm Bella's Twilight Look for 2 years, now I bought the breaking dawn version a week ago, despite me being a platinum blonde with a pixie cut!!! The looks are wonderfully neutral and the products just work so beautifully together.
As the previous reviewer pointed out,I'd also like to know what was used on her in New Moon, since that was quite a different look from Twilight in my opinion.
Hi emmettsnewgirl. It's hard to say what other 'Twilight' breakdowns we might get in. I know Beauty Editor Melissa MacGillivray is always working to get our readers the breakdowns they want, so keep your fingers crossed!

Re: Amanda12- I know the Chanel winter nights is discontinued, but if you call the Chanel 1-800 number they can tell you what Chanel boutiques have it and you can order it from the store.
The colors do look beautiful from this wedding look. I think both the eyeshadows and lip colors are so subtle, yet classic, they can be used by almost anyone. So thankful the artist was able to reveal all the products that were used. I'm having fun experimenting.
I think some Chanel counters may still have Winter Nights. I purchased the last one at my local Macy's. They may have been able to order it through their fulfillment center as well. It is tricky - the darkest color is intense. The makeup looked good in the movie. I know the makeup artists spend much time creating custom shades by blending several colors together for lips and cheeks but the color the create often changes in post production. I wish they just used one color that was created already and that we could just buy.
Winter Nights has long been d/c, but the Fall 2013 shadow quad called "Mystere" is an almost exact dupe. I am relieved because Wnter Nights was one of my favorites and I couldn't replace it once I used it up. Google Winter Nights and Mystere and compare the pics. Other happy Chanel users are also commenting on beauty blogs how happy they are that Winter Nights is "available" again. Hope this helps!
