Vamp It Up Like Kristen Stewart

Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, Kristen Stewart had Hollywood in her blood from an early age. With her father working for Fox Television and her mother a scriptwriter, Kristen couldn't help but jump into the Hollywood limelight. At the age of 8, Kristen started her career in a school Christmas show, where an agent discovered her and immediately had her in a Disney Channel TV production, the Thirteenth Year. After roles in several independent films and smaller projects, Kristen eventually took roles in more well known movies like Panic Room, Cold Creek Manor, In the Land of Women and into the Wild. Kristen's most exciting role, by far, has been her role as Bella Swan in the 2008 blockbuster, Twilight. Mysterious and beautiful, Kristen's perfect portrayal of Bella Swan has America- and Edward Cullen- in love with her. Known for her easy going attitude and preference for classic style, Kristen's simple, chic look has us totally loving her look.

Intense and mysterious, Kristen's eyes are not only totally sexy, but not so hard at all! Try applying eye make-up this way to get Kristen's simple look:

- Start by applying Bed Head Big Fat Fun Eyeliner ($16) in Black to the very edge of the eye lid. Apply more heavily as you move away from the nose, and smudge the eyeliner up into the crease.
- Use Bed Head 4-Play in Matte Love ($27) for a color scheme similar to the one that Kristen uses. Apply the second lightest color, the lightest brown, all over the eyelid for a neutral base. Then, apply the darker brown color along the crease and at the outside of the eye. Use the copper color very lightly for a bit of highlighting on the inner eye.

- Finish Kristen's look by applying Bed Head Eyes Love It Mascara ($14) to lashes, thicker at the outside corners of the eyes.

For Kristen's hair and loose, natural curls, try these tips:

- After cleansing and conditioning, apply Blow Wave Maker Light Twisting Lotion ($21). Work from roots to ends.
- Blow dry hair with the Solano Top Power Blow Dryer ($144) using either a round brush or your fingers to twist and twirl your hair as you dry, while working your fingers at the roots to get the kind of natural volume Kristen has. For straighter hair, try using a large curling iron to get those toppling waves.
- Finish your style using Phytolaque Hairspray ($18) to hold your style while allowing for flexibility and movement.

For a natural lip color like Kristen's, try this:

- Apply Bed Head Big Fat Fun Lip Liner ($16) in a neutral shade, like Decaf, lightly along the edge of your lips to carefully define them.
- Give yourself all over shine and moisture with Rosebud Salve ($6). Apply over your lips and smudge to help blend with the lip liner.

Kristen's porcelain face doesn't take a lot of fuss. Try these tips for skin makeup like hers:

- Apply Bed Head Dream Foundation ($30) in the appropriate color for your skin all over the face. Be careful to blend at your chin and along the hairline.
- For a dust of pink along the cheeks, use an extremely pale pink like Bed Head Player Blush in Shyness ($17). Apply blush to brush, blow off excess dust and brush lightly across the cheek bone. Repeat as needed for darker color.

Revolution Organics All-Over Skin Creme ($33) is a beauty gem that is worth going gaga about! There are so many "green" products out on the market, but this one is worth taking a second glance at. It is suitable for everyone in the family to use, except for the dog. Sorry, Fido!

Review: Earthworks

Earthworks was born out of the appreciation of the body and their dedication to creating a fragrant, luxurious body care products to keep the body clean, supple and beautiful.

They combined pur-essence with pure and natural ingredients: shea butter, jojoba, honey, grapeseed oil and soothing calendula to create the most luxurious soaps, shower gels, bath oils and body lotions which nourish, moisturize and soothe the skin.

All of their products are paraben-free and cruelty-free with recyclable packaging.

Fresh lime pur-essence in a beautifully made triple-milled bar of the finest quality, made in England with moisturizing shea butter, jojoba and coconut oils.

Review: This soap would make a wonderful gift idea, especially for those who love handmade soap! The Sweet Lime Soap ($10) has the most succulent and sweet smelling of lime. The smell isn't overpowering either. I'm not much of a lime fan, but this even tantalized my senses! I'm not just a fan of the smell, but I like how it doesn't dry out my skin like most milled soap have in the past. If you don't think the Sweet Lime is for you, you might also be interested in their other scents: Almond, Rose, Mandarine, Limone, African Jasmine, Japanese Flower, Grapefruit, Pistachio, Hazelnut, Frangipani or Seringa Blossom

Mystical and dreamy Seringa Blossom ($40) pur-essence captures notes of white flowers, bergamot, grapefruit and amber in an exquisite and memorable eau de parfum for daily use and enjoyment.

Review: This scent took me awhile to get used to. I wasn't too keen about it at first, because it has a strong and slightly masculine smell. I really like how clean and tart that this fragrance is though. I have to spritz a very tiny amount, because the smell can be a bit overpowering. This ideal for a woman who would like to try something different than the perfumey fragrances out there.

They also have other scents that might be more suitable for you: African Jasmine, Japanese Flower, Frangipani, Rose, Limone or Mandarine

For nearly 50 years in practice and through extensive research these potent, natural ingredients have demonstrated their therapeutic and beautifying effects resulting in clear, balanced and glowing complexions.

Review: I was a bit apprehensive on trying out this mask after trying out the Yes To Carrots Mud Mask (great line of products, but hated the mask!), because it caused me to break out. However, I didn't have any problems with this mask, except it smells almost good enough to eat. You'll love the scent if you like vanilla! It does a great job at giving my face enough moisture without causing a breakout. I have combination skin. So it can be a little tricky at finding a product good as this.

This mask is suitable for the following skin types and conditions: sensitive skin, dry skin, sunburn, wrinkles, stretch marks and pregnancy skin care, flabby skin, oil and water deficient skin, skin lacking elasticity, inflamed follicles after waxing or shaving, and premature or mature skin or for the eye area of all skin types.
