As temperatures drop, the traditional beauty voyage has been to transition one’s hair color from the sun-kissed tones of summer to a richer, warmer hue that feels more appropriately autumnal. But one must remember that beauty rules are meant to be experimented with and, sometimes, broken altogether. And who better to shake things up than risk-taker Kristen Stewart? This weekend the actress, who stepped out at the Toronto Film Festival for her new film Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy, made the case for lightening up lengths this fall, her ice-blonde pixie appearing brighter than ever before.
With deliberately darkened-in roots, a look that offset the sweetness of her short, piece-y cut and side swept bangs, the bold color move felt more grunge than glam. That is, until onlookers met the actress’s piercing gaze. With black, fanned-out lashes on both the upper and lower lash lines, and a thick brush of liquid liner accompanied by a subtle sliver of silver tracing the waterline, the above-neck look called to mind favorite It Brit of the ’60s, Twiggy. Pretty pale pink accents, likely drawn in with a pencil on the lips and along the natural crease of her eyes, completed the mod makeup moment. Proof that no matter the decade, or the season, a risky beauty move will always feel right on time.
