Get the 'Twilight' look with red carpet make-up tips

Twilight fans will undoubtedly be getting their faces on for Wednesday night's London premiere of Breaking Dawn: Part 2 in the capital's Leicester Square.

And glowing on the Los Angeles red carpet, the leading ladies of the Twilight movie saga, Kristen Stewart, Nikki Reed and Ashley Greene previously showed off their bewitching beauty looks as they greeted the fans and cameras with perfect skin and sultry eyes.


 Not one for sticking to convention, 22-year-old Kristen threw out the beauty rules and pulled off a dark smokey eye and berry bitten lip combo. The actress who plays the film's heroine, Bella Swan, maintained her light complexion for the red carpet.Fresh and chic, the key to Kristen's look is a good base. By making sure the surrounding areas of the nose and mouth are touched up with concealer and sheer foundation to cover any redness that would clash against the purple pigments of a dark lipstick. A light dusting of loose pearlescent powder and a sharp sweep of eyeliner completes the vampy look.Accompanying her were co-stars Nikki and Ashley, who play the gorgeous Robert Pattinson's vampire sisters. The glamorous duo went for a more subtle look with natural colours and shimmer.Often seen embracing her darker complexion, Nikki admits to feeling more comfortable in her natural look compared to her on-screen ivory skin: "The whole pale thing works for Rob, people who like to stay indoors and out of the sun, like vampires, but not for me!" Highlighting the glowing depth of colour to her body, the 21-year-old uses a sweep of warm bronzer over well moisturised skin and complements the effect with smooth contours over her face using a lighter of bronzer shade over the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin.


Also swapping the blonde locks of her fair-haired character, Rosalie, Nikki swept her usually dark mahogany curls into a slicked-back up-do. For a glossy party sheen use hot oil treatment after conditioning to revive the worst of winter hair and pin in place with a slick of high-shine hair serum.Co-star Ashley's pout was perfected with a pretty pink cream-based lipstick. The clear shine finish complemented the star's glistening drop-diamond earrings and suited her light eye make-up that focused on enhancing the lash-line.

For a similar look, keep the eye area fairly neutral except for a smudge of taupe-coloured cream shadow pressed into the socket area. Finish off with a slick of precision liquid liner and individual fake-lashes at the end of the eye area to create a flicked-out cat eye effect.
