Polished Skin and Nude Lips
"Kristen Stewart was wearing a stunning Proenza Schouler gown and she and the designers decided they wanted a striking smoky eye with a nude lip," makeup artist Beau Nelson said of the star's 2011 MET Ball look. Of course, the perfect canvas is the start to a flawless face. "I started by applying a silky, lightweight foundation with a synthetic brush in a circular motion to give her skin an even, radiant glow." (Synthetic brushes tend to be less irritating than natural ones, and they last longer.) Nelson swirled foundation on Stewart's lips to blot out their natural color before tapping a moisturizing lipstick on her mouth for a warm nude finish.
