Snow White and the Huntsman: Kristen Stewart Inspired

While I'm not generally a fan of Kristen Stewart in films, I like that she never really has on tons of makeup.
I saw Snow White and the Huntsman yesterday, and I really liked it.

The makeup was sort of hit and miss, though. The "regular" or fashion makeup was really nice (except for one shot where it was obvious they had whitened Kristen's face but not her neck); it was the more special effects (latex prosthetic appliances, fake beards, old-age makeup) that I was disappointed with.

ANYWAY, here is what I came up with based on Kristen's no-makeup-makeup she had in the film. Enjoy!

MAC Hey Sailor Inspired Look

From what I've read from some beauty bloggers, this is not MAC's best summer collection. To be sure, I went into a local store and played around with the new products. The colour payoff on the eyeshadows and blushes are not terrific. The lipsticks were nice, and the eyeliners were not awful, but the collection as a whole was not their best.
The promo picture for the collection, however, was quite captivating.
I was not a fan of the eyebrows with the hard line on the top fading down to the browbone. But the colours as a whole really worked well together. I want to show that you can create a similar look without spending tons of money on MAC stuff if you have similar shades.
The red lips here have a cool undertone that matches the model's skin. My skin has a warmer undertone so I chose a warmer red to avoid clashing.

Products Used

-MAC Face and Body Foundation C3 and C5 mixed
-Inglot AMC pressed powder bronzer #60 (under cheekbones, at the temples, and jawline)
-MAC mineralize blush in Fresh Honey (an orange-toned blush)
-Nars blush in Albatross (shimmery white-gold, tops of cheekbones, on the bridge of the nose and cupid's bow)

-Urban Decay Primer Potion
-MAC eyeshadow in All That Glitters (eyelid)
-Faces eyeshadow in Suede (warm orangery-brown blended in the crease)
-Urban Decay eyeshadow in Twice Baked (dark brown just at the outer corners)
-Inglot eyeshadow #30 (awesome shimmery white-gold, inner corners and browbone)
-Annabelle Smoothliner in Meteorite (navy blue, upper and lower lashline and waterline)
-MAC eyeshadow in Freshwater (shimmery ocean blue, on top of eyeliner)
-MAC eyeshadow in Contrast (blackened blue, in waterline and outer half of upper and lower lashline)
-Revlon GrowLuscious Mascara

-L'Oreal Infallible Lip Color in Beyonce's Red
-Buxom Plumping Lips Gloss in Krystal
