Character picspams...sort of...  
Am I the only one who thinks that everyone in the first Twilight movie looked WAY better than the rest?  I wanted to ask around because one thing that makes me nuts about the remainder of the films is the way hair and makeup is done.  You would think that with films with such budgets that they could do better than this.  And it's not like it's tough to cast and make people look REALLY good.  Look at the vampires on True Blood.  They look beautiful and a lot of it has to do with good makeup.  

So here are my examples:

Okay, Alice looked pretty cute throughout, but I think her first look was what I thought of from the book. She's most 'pixie' looking in that one

Yeah...Jasper...he looked great in the first movie, but went downhill from there.

Bella looked amazing in New Moon. The other two were okay.

Great in Twilight and then, WTF happened?

Rosalie. As far as I am concerned, this is a lesson in how to do high budget makeup, hair, and clothing right. I really like Nikki, but they should have cast a real blond for this or done a better job. She looked good in Twilight though. I think it was the clothing.

Esme, why the black hair in Eclipse???

totally agree with you. to be honest i've never thought much of the makeup and hair in twilight but it seemed more polished in the first film. the only one who looks better after the first film is jake!

I think Victoria's hair was pretty badass in New Moon too. :)

Okay. I loved this picspam sweetie this is great! But I agree. I love the eyes in the NM and Eclipse. I think cause it made them otherworldy with the eyes but the make-up.....I don't like Esme's look in the 3rd movie. She seems creepy and not motherly at all! I like her look in the first film and second film. Though I did like Rosalie look in the 2nd movie a little bit because it was curly and it fit with her eyes more. But I liked Bella's look in the 2nd movie. It was more out there then in the 3rd cause the 3rd was different.....she seemed more softer in that and Jasper. I loved him in the 3rd movie!!! SO much to his character. :) and I loved Alice in the 3rd movie too. And also Edward's too. :)

The only ones that really bothered me were Dakota Fanning because of the huge amount of eye shadow/liner she had on. She didn't look like a vampire, she looked like an emo punk kid and Nikki Reed in Eclipse. Her makeup was just awful in the last movie but it was fine in Twilight and New Moon.

Yeah, I agree. The vamps in True Blood and even The Vampire Diaries look great. You would think that with such a big budget, they would have been able to do a better job.

Glad you brought that up. I thought the same regarding Dakota. They could have done some really great things with makeup to make her appear darker than what they did.

The Vampire Diaries, that's the one that I couldn't remember! They have super pretty vamps on that one too!

I think it was pretty crappy in all of them to be honest.
I always found Rosalie disappointing, and hey, I actually like Nikki. I just don't think she's very good at Rosalie, and I think a lot of it is her look.

Ah, another person who likes Nikki, but not as Rosalie. Thank you! :) I find it funny that Nikki is so cute in real life with pretty much a complete opposite look. When I first saw Twilight, I wondered if people would even recognize her in reality if they hadn't seen her prior.
