Kristen Stewart associated perfume with old ladies before fronting a fragrance campaign.
The Twilight actress is the face of Balenciaga’s Rosabotanica and Florabotanica perfumes and says she uses the scents “constantly”.
But prior to landing the campaign, the 23-year-old hadn’t had much experience with perfume.
“I haven’t really looked for perfume in the past, my experience with fragrance has been fairly limited until this point, so it’s been a really fun experience getting to know how I like to use it,” Kristen told marieclaire.co.uk.
“I’ve always associated perfume with like, grandmas. But I really love Florabotanica and I use it constantly, so I’m really happy that this story has unravelled and developed into this next phrase, because I get to have a perfume that I really dig. This [Rosabotanica] is clearly related to Florabotanica, it’s just like a distant version, it’s a little bolder, it’s a little warmer.”
The actress is known for her grungy style, and her long hair is usually swept to one side.
But Kristen would happily lose her mane for the right movie role, and says shaving her head is on her to do list.
“Yeah, absolutely. If a project pops up I’d like to be in a place where I can transform,” she answered when asked if she’d drastically change her hair for a part.
“I’ve gotten to dye my hair a lot over the years, but never really any extreme cuts. I would love to. I’m the type of person that at some point definitely will. I’ll shave my head at some point. I mean at some point in your life, like you’re never going to experience that?”
She also divulged that her top beauty look for this year is clumpy mascara.
Instead of opting for flawless make-up, Kristen says it’s more interesting to go for heavy eyes.
“Recently I worked with someone who did my mascara like super clumpy. I’d never really seen that before. I was really into it, like you don’t always have to sit and fixate on them being totally perfect, you can just go, like, totally the other way, and do really, really heavy kind of clumpy mascara.
“It also saves time because I think if you’re trying to get it perfect, like sometimes it’s a little stressful. So that’s a good tip. So just use a lot, and then claim that that’s what you were going for,” she joked.
