Frederic Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Adir Abergelc reated super chic tresses for Kristen Stewartfor the 2011 MET Gala, held last night in New York City.
INSPIRATION: A hint of glamour with beautiful fullness and texture
LOOK: A tousled low chignon full of volume and texture
How to get the look: Abergel started out by applying Fekkai Coiff™ Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel to the roots to add volume and then loosely dried the hair with his hands. With a ¾ inch iron he created a natural wave and sprayed Fekkai Beach Waves to keep the curl. Then he let the hair fall into a rough middle part and pulled the hair back into a low chignon. To secure the look, Abergel finished with the Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Spray letting a few pieces fall in front to shape the face.

For her makeup, Kristen turned to celebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson.
Kristen was wearing a stunning Proenza Schouler gown and she and the designers decided they wanted a striking smoky eye with a nude lip for her beauty look. I started by applying COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation with a synthetic brush in a circular motion to give her skin an even, radiant glow and added a touch of concealer where needed. On her eye, we wanted to try something a little different than the traditional smoky eye, so I started by lining the entire eye with COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast in Black Fire then and smudging it all around the eye. I then went over it close to the lash line with the COVERGIRL Line Exact liquid liner in Black for added drama and diffused the edges. To set the liner, I applied the black shade of COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast in Onyx Smoke so the black would stay in place all night and finished by lining the inner rim of her eye with the LiquilineBlast. I then curled her lashes and applied COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion in Black, 2 coats on the top and one on bottom.
On her face, I created a contour using a taupe/brown blush and added a touch of shimmer with a NARS highlighter.
On Kristen’s lips, I first applied foundation to create a nude canvas and then COVERGIRL LipPerfection lipcolor in Kiss, applying it in a tapping motion with my finger. I finished her lips with COVERGIRL ShineBlast Lip Gloss in Glow, which she took with her along with COVERGIRL Clean Pressed Powder for a quick touchup later. Kristen loves to always try something different and we’ve never done a smoky eye that stayed so close to the lashes, it was almost a little punk.
