Wear colored contacts if possible, as "Twilight" vampires have glowing, colored eyes. Vegetarian "Twilight" vampires have golden eyes while regular vampires have burgundy eyes.
Use a foundation on your skin which is about two shades lighter than your natural skin tone. Work the foundation into your skin with circular motions, covering your ears and neck as well for a blended, natural look. "Twilight" vampires have light almost glowing skin, so you might consider a foundation which is designed to reflect light. These are often called "luminance," "sheer" or "brilliance."
Apply lavender eyeliner and eyeshadow topping it off with a light layer of black mascara. Make sure that you apply a line of lavender under the eye as well to top off your "Twilight" vampire look. Finish your makeup with a blood red lipstick.
Dress simply, but dark. You can choose jeans and long sleeved t-shirts or simple skirts with blouses as long as the colors are deep purples, dark reds or blacks. "Twilight" vampires do not typically dress in extravagant vampire garb as they blend in well with humans, but dark colors are always preferable.
Select very small fake fangs if your choose to wear them. Many "Twilight" vampires do not have fangs, so they are not necessary to complete your look. Those who do have them only have small, delicate fangs which are difficult to spot. Keep your look subtle if you choose a pair of false fangs.
