Kristen Stewart’s Smoky Eye Transformation

Goodbye natural look, we’re crushing on Kristen Stewart’s uber-heavy winged eye.

The actress switched up her characteristic low-key look for majorly dramatic eyes at the LA premier of American Ultra.

Think less flick, more super-sized wing. Kristen’s liner extends right out to the ends of her eyebrows!

Grab your kohl to stay one step ahead of the trend. If you think you’ve seen this look before, the exaggerated eye was debuted backstage at Chanel AW15 by Kendall Jenner and co.

As the face of Chanel, we love Kristen’s catwalk copycat version.

Dramatic, yes. Severe? No… Kristen’s bold liner is majorly softened with blending so it doesn’t look too hard.

To balance out those BIG wings, make like Kristen and keep the rest of your look pared down. Think barely-there lips and effortless hair. Kristen tied her hair back loosely into a low-key twist with pieces falling at the front.

Note her perfect eyebrows are defined but not bold to avoid a clash.

Kristen’s eyes are framed with undereye liner and a coat of black mascara. Wearing false lashes diverts attention away from that statement wing.

Want in? Experiment using a liner to create the extended wing shape and pat black eyeshadow over the top, blending outwards to soften.

Create impact by switching your usual eyeliner pencil for a kajal stick, like YSL’s new Couture Kajal in Noir Ardent, £25. This 3-in-1 pencil acts like a eyeliner, kohl or eye shadow.

With eyes this bold, we’re skipping accessories like Kristen. All you need is a pair of next season’s Wonder Wings.
