Besides Kristen Stewart’s look as Joan Jett, we also have a breakdown from makeup department head Robin Mathews for Dakota Fanning’s look as Cherie Currie.


Step 1. Apply Star Powder #922 (copper) onto the eye lid, all the way to the inner corner, stopping just shy of the outer corner.

Step 2. Using Aqua Eyes #3L (iridescent navy blue), line the lash line on the top and bottom lids. Robin’s tip: for the perfect smoky eye, the trick is to apply the eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible.

Step 3. Smudge the eyeliner on the top and bottom of the eye using a smudging brush to create a more fluid, blended look.

Step 4. Apply Eye Shadow #81(metallic navy blue iridescent) to the outer corner of the eye using a small flat brush, then drag the shadow into the crease very lightly.

Step 5. Tap the brush to remove any excess shadow and then blend the blue shadow line ever so slightly. Using the same brush, apply the blue eye shadow onto the bottom lash line to blend it out and create a smoky effect.

Step 6. Curl the lashes, then apply Smoky Lash Mascara going up and out to accentuate and elongate the eye.
