Kristen Stewart‘s retro hair look, created by Frédéric Fekkai stylist Adir Abergel, was comprised of Old Hollywood waves that were perfect for the final installation of the movie franchise that made her a superstar. Mark Brand Ambassador Ashley Greene made her mark at the premiere with a makeup look created by celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali, creating Ashley’s stunning yet natural looking makeup for the evening. Recreate the glamorous looks for a night out by following the tips below!
THE LOOK: A Veronica Lake-inspired style with a modern, deconstructed twist
Begin by applying Fekkai COIFF Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel ($25.00) from roots to ends to create texture and memory.
Next, hand-dry the hair until it is completely dry to enhance your natural texture and create volume before making a deep side part.
After the part is created, take 1″ sections of hair, spray them with Fekkai COIFF Sheer Hold Hairspray ($23.00) and curl them around a 1″ barrel curling iron.
Pin the curls in place and allow hair to cool. Continue this process around the entire head.
Once you’ve finished curling your hair, gently brush out the curls with the Fekkai Classic Brush ($95.00) and apply Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream ($25.00) to the ends to create separation and give hair a high-shine effect.
Add a modern twist and some edge to the style by slicking back one side of the hair and pinning it in place.
Finish your style with Fekkai COIFF Sheer Hold Hairspray to ensure for touchable hold.
“I prepped Ashley’s skin with mark Primed for Perfection Face Primer ($10.00). Next, I applied a thin coat of mark Got the Goods Multi-Benefit Foundation Lotion SPF 15 ($18.00) and mark Good Riddance Hook Up Concealer ($6.50) where necessary. Then, I applied mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder ($12.50) under her cheekbones, temples and jaw line, adding a bit of contour and warming up her face.”
“I applied mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint ($8.00) in Cheeky to the apples of Ashley’s cheeks, layered with a touch of Light Show Illuminating Face Powder ($16.00). This combination softens the pigment of the cheek and creates a radiant, lit-from-within look.”
“I started by shading Ashley’s lids, from lash-line to eyebrow, with mark I-Mark Metallics Custom Pick Eye Shadow ($7.00) in Goldiluxe. To lengthen and add contour, I used mark I-Mark Metallics Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Truffle on her outer corners and in her natural creases. The combination of the two shades wrap under her bottom lashes, fading towards the inner corners of her eyes. I lined Ashley’s eyes, very close to her lashes, with mark No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner ($9.00) in Foxy Brown and finished by applying a few generous coats of mark Lash Act Build & Define Mascara ($12.00) in Blackest Black.”
