The Runaways

So, I just watched the film with Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning and was so inspired by the make up worn by both actresses, but mostly Fanning's character Cherie Currie.

This very dark smoky eye captivates me, I'd love to be able to recreate it and not look like i've just been caught in a rain shower and smeared my mascara round my face. It is a bit drug addict chic, but that's not a problem in my books. Fanning totally pulls the look off. Dark eyes, nude lips; an old formula but a good one.
In this image I love Stewart's more refined smoky eye with a hint of purple, much more wearable. But, Fanning's make up is much cooler in my opinion; power contouring with blush, red lip, silvery-blue winged out smoky eye, lots of eye liner. You can clearly see the influence of glam rock here, a sexier version of her recreation of Bowie at the opening of the film (Which I loved, huge Bowie fan!)

Have you seen The Runaways? Did you find it inspirational at all? I also loved the costumes used in the films :)

  2. I saw this last month and I really loved the image the band had. Dakota Fanning always looks so innocent but the make up in the film made her look older and edgier - its such a good look for her! Cherie's lingerie based outfits are kinda like what Taylor Momsen is trying to do now so I think her style has definitely influenced loads of people out there today. Loved the soundtrack too, as soon as it finished I downloaded Kristen Stewart & Dakota Fanning's version of Cherry Bomb.
