In the April issue of ELLE, out today, Kristen Stewart shares her favourite beauty products. Here she talks about changing her looks for roles, her favourite smells and the unlikely character she looks to for beauty advice...
Ive just started using an eye cream, you know I never used to worry about these things but lately I have noticed my skin changing.
On getting enough sleep:
'Typically I try to get good sleep, drink water, eat healthy. I could sleep 10 hours, but I find eight hours is sufficient.
But then Ive had some of my most treasured experiences on no sleep like when we were filming On the Road. Im not even kidding there were nights we didnt sleep but we were living well and so inspired everyone looked great.
On changing her look for roles:
'Im pretty much open to anything if I really loved the part Id do anything. You know, hair grows relatively speaking - it doesnt take that long in exchange for a good experience so I think its worth it. Ive been blonde, dark, Ive had reddish hair, short long. I run the gambit.
On her off-duty style:
I go for a typically natural look, not just because its easy. Im from Southern California I was born and raised in LA and here were very casual. If I go to London or New York its so fancy; Im the one looking completely out of place.
My mom is a completely southern California girl she is why I am Miss jeans and a T-shirt. You look at those people, who are so put together, and then you look at their moms and they tend to be put together. My mom is like dont worry about it; make-up is so artificial why would you not want to look like yourself?
On beauty advice:
Take a tip from Zoolander, she told ELLE. Moisture is key she said referring to the movie quote Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty.

On her favourite smells:
I really love cooking I love the smell of fresh herbs. Do not like to bake, theres like a chemistry element that Im not into. I like cooking American comfort food but then I can also do lighter, healthier food. Gardenia is probably my favourite smell.
