Kristen Stewart's Makeup At Chanel's Metiers d'Art Show Was So Unexpected
Kristen Stewart isn't typically one to play it safe — especially in the beauty department. She's rocked just about every hairdo in the books, from a classic pixie to a bold, platinum blond buzz cut, and she's constantly experimenting with out-of-the-box makeup looks, too. The actor made instant headlines when she debuted yellow brows at the 2019 Met Gala, and though that beauty moment seemed hard to beat, Kristen Stewart's makeup at Chanel's Metiers d'Art show officially takes the cake as her boldest (and best) of 2019.
Stewart traveled to Seoul, South Korea over the weekend to attend the French fashion house's annual Metiers d'Art show, which took place on May 28. The actor, who's been a longtime brand ambassador, stunned at the annual event in a sheer white blouse and black leather shorts, both by Chanel, which she styled with thigh-high lace-up boots and layers of silver necklaces.
The grungy getup called for equally edgy hair and makeup. The 29-year-old rocked a wet-hair look courtesy of Adir Abergel and slime-green lids that you're going to want to replicate ASAP. Luckily, her most recent eyeshadow moment is actually fairly easy to emulate.
Makeup pro Beau Nelson, whose client roster include the likes of Anne Hathaway, Rachel Brosnahan, and Emma Roberts, was the mastermind behind what's easily Stewart's most over-the-top makeup look of the year — and you really only need a handful of products to recreate it.
Nelson likely started by coating Stewart's lids with a long-lasting eye primer — an essential prep step that ensures the shadow doesn't smudge or budge throughout the day. What's more, it typically makes the color pop a bit more, something you definitely want when working with such a vibrant hue.
He then applied a bright-green shadow all over her lid, creating an winged tip near the outer corner for an eye-opening effect. Nelson finished off Stewart's look with a smoky lower lash line and a swipe of mascara.
The actor's latest beauty moment is right in line with the colorful makeup trend that's been gaining serious ground the past few months. Celebs like Selena Gomez, Mandy Moore, and Gigi Hadid have all test drove vibrant lids, and that list is sure to grow in the coming weeks.
