I went to watch New Moon yesterday. While it wasn’t as good as the first movie in general, I definitely thought Bella’s (Kristin Stewart) makeup improved dramatically; I wonder if its the same person who did the makeup for both movies. Anyways, you can see the comparison between top (New Moon) and bottom (Twilight).
In New Moon, Bella especially looks more human, in some ways “warmer.” It could also be because New Moon was edited to be yellow-tinted rather than blue-tinted like Twilight. I found that in Twilight, it was hard to distinguish between the vampires and the humans because they all looked pale and somewhat sickly, but in New Moon you can definitely see that distinction. Also in Twilight, Bella’s makeup was more gray-ish, while in New Moon it was definitely brown or beige-neutral.
Chris Weitz (the director) definitely put a new spin on things, as its no longer as chick-flicky, but he incorporated a LOT of what was in the book, especially some major quotes which were pretty important, even though they were SO sappy when said out loud. I admit I rolled my eyes more than once throughout the entire movie. Also of course, the real treat lies with Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and his gorgeous buff body; the crowd swooned over it so much more than they swooned over Edward’s (Robert Pattinson), maybe because they knew Jacob’s was the real stuff when Edward’s was drawn on using computer graphics, haha. Anyhow, I won’t spoil the movie for you; you should definitely watch it if you are even somewhat of a fan of Twilight, it won’t let you down.
Before the movie yesterday, I also took some time to grab some things for the giveaway
that I am having. I went and bought some Urban Decay makeup! I got 3 eyeshadow pans and a brow pencil. For the eyeshadows, I bought two of Acid Rain, which is shimmery gold, and one of Gash, which is a gorgeous deep copper.
The two eyeshadows are definitely up to UD standard. They are so smooth, pigmented and easy to apply. They’re both quite shimmery (which I really like), but there is almost no fallout. Both colours are very wearable, especially Acid Rain, which can create a very beautiful shimmery base for other eyeshadows.
What do you think?
