beauty queen: kristen stewart

the actress schools us on the before-noon smokey eye at chanel.

A debate broke out in the NYLON office this morning about Kristen Stewart. No, not about that--instead, we were discussing whether she's a Chanel girl. Because while we don't argue her fashion bona fides, we think of her as more Balenciaga than Karl Lagerfeld & Co. Yet there she was at this morning's Chanel couture show in Paris, looking tres rocker-chic in a white tweed blazer, fingerless gloves (clearly the Kaiser had a say in this outfit), and some arm bands.

And that wasn't the only reason she looked great: Her makeup was equally flawless, the sort of edgy-pretty we daydream about. If you've ever wondered how to pull off a smokey eye before noon, then ding-ding-ding we've got a winner. Here's how:

GREEN IT: Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow - $59
Trade your usual charcoals and blacks for some turquoise--first line your lids with a navy shadow, then soften and extend out past your outer-corner with a mermaid-appropriate blue-green.

LAYER IT: Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Grace - $34 and Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss High Shine Sheer Concentrate in French Toffee - $27
What's better than one lip color? Two--apply this satin-finish lipstick first, before dabbing a shimmery, glossy coat on top.

GLOW IT: Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid - $48
If you can't afford weekly facials, applying this along your cheekbones will give you that same dewy glow.
