Beautiful Speed Racer

Speed Racer is a really beautiful movie. The storyline is kind of "meh," but my 7 year old son loved it. But the visual effects were striking: bold uses of color, sharp graphics, and bright outfits really made everything stand out.

Because it was a rather long movie with a few slow bits thrown in, I found myself really checking out Christina Ricci's makeup in the film. It was lovely. Very traditional nude face with a striking red lip. The red that they used must have been a blue-based red, which really pops on a pale face, which is, I'm sure, exactly what they were going for. The dark hair also made the lips stand out. I could tell they also used a liquid liner on the top lids only, with light mascara. The eyeshadow was definitely matte nude, and the overall effect was striking.

I'm inspired to try the look myself. When I do, I'll be sure to post!

i loved seeing her in that bob with the bangs. i think after the movie was shot, she went to a more highlighted bob and it was gorge on her. i agree that she looks great in the makeup for the movie too. thanks for this.
