Before becoming an Angel or vampire, Kristen Stewart got her start as a child, starring alongside Jodie Foster in Panic Room. It's been nearly 20 years since that film was released, and in that time, Stewart has truly blazed her own path, starring in many feature films, and ruling every red carpet she walks on. Over time, Stewart has gone through a major beauty evolution, trying everything from a shaved head to a makeup routine with brows. Each one of her looks has been truly memorable, but in case you missed a single appearance from Stewart, this beauty evolution contains some of her hit looks.
After starring in the Twilight film franchise, Stewart became a household name, and with news of a new Twilight book, it's likely that many fans will be taking a look back. There's no word on whether this latest addition to the series will get a movie treatment, and whether Stewart will star, but it was during her days on the film that Stewart began branching out, experimenting with new beauty routines and more elegant looks with each event.
Years later and Stewart is still keen to try something new. While it appears that a good smoky eye will never go out of style for this star, there's also been moments of surprising color and lots of sparkle. The actor's red carpet beauty routines have always kept fans guessing, and with Stewart currently working on an upcoming queer-focused holiday rom-com, it's likely you'll see more of her signature style soon.
