Affordable Chanel Kristen Stewart Makeup

Well hello guys, I hope you're all well! I decided to do something different today and recreate the look that Chanel did on Kristen Stewart recently, with the vampy-red smokey eyes and the bold lip. I've used much cheaper alternatives and hope that this will be helpful to you!






So this look is actually super simple, and only took me about 15 minutes to create. I listed the products that I used just above, however obviously a lot of these are interchangeable. 

Firstly I did a little colour correcting to make my skin as even as possible. I applied a peachy shade under my eyes to counteract any darkness, and used green around my nose just to get rid of any redness. To apply my foundation I used a damp beauty blender, as you really want the coverage to be as flawless as possible, but still looking pretty natural. I just powdered this down with my NYX Finishing Powder, as Kristen's skin is really matte in the photo (I'm even convinced she used a Powder Foundation, but I don't have one). It looked as if she had no contour or anything on her cheeks, although it was hard to tell, so I just left the skin there.
To start off the key part of the look, the eyes, I applied my NYX Milk Eye Pencil all over the lid and up into the crease, to allow the red colour to really pop. I had the perfect dupe for the Chanel Red in the 268 pallette, which was my INGLOT shadow in #55. This went all over my lid and quite far down on my lower lash line. This looks terrifying at first, genuinely looked like a Halloween makeup look, but don't worry it gets better! I then took a matte brown shade, which was from MUA, and blended this at the edge of the red on both the upper lid and the lower lash line. This just darkened up the look and made it look less like I was diseased. Lastly, a couple of coats of mascara, and that's the eyes finished!
The brows were super simple, and I just used my Benefit Gimme Brow to fill in a little of the sparse areas, whilst also brushing my brows upwards, as Kristen's definitely were. The last step is the lips, and I used my MUA Lip Liners, applying the bright red all over, and the darker shade on the outer edges. 


I'm so pleased with how this came out! I don't know if it's the sort of look I would be able to pull off in public but I do have a thing for red eyeshadow, so who knows! Please ignore the fact that my ears are red, I dyed my hair the day before I took these photos and there was no getting rid of it.


I hope you guys enjoyed something a bit different and more creative from me! Let me know what you think of this look in the comments below, and if you tried to recreate it yourself!
