“Sultry, edgy, lash-y,” makeup artist Jillian Dempsey says, when we asked her to describe the look she created for Kristen Stewart at the New York premiere of Stewart’s new movie, Camp X-Ray. “Her eyes are so expressive—I definitely wanted to play them up.” And play them up, she did. Stewart’s final eye makeup look was an ethereal combination of inky black eyeliner, an iridescent smoky eye, and a full, lush fringe—a smoky eye from our haziest daydreams.

We sent photographer Hadar Pitchon behind the scenes to capture the magic as it was happening, and chatted with Dempsey to find out what it’s really like to get ready with Stewart for a big event. Hint: Don’t expect any red lipstick.
