The Runaways: Cherry Bomb (Dakota Fanning) Make-up

Way back in October of last year I did a post about the film The Runaways – I love that film so much and since my make-up skills have improved over the last year I thought I would have a go at one of my favourite make-up looks from the film. My favourite character is Cherry Bomb (Dakota Fanning) and at one point in the film she wears this almost graphic black and white smoky eye with a bright red lip. A little more daring than my usual style – I normally concentrate on one area of my face (eyes or lips) but I thought I would give it a go anyway.
