The Notebook

Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams famous onscreen chemistry in this tear invoking romance was legendary.  When a young man named Noah (Gosling) falls for wealthy, beautiful Allie Calhoun (McAdams) their love seems hopeless as Allie’s parents refuse to let her fall for a poor, labouring boy. However, once they have both grown up they find their way back in to each other’s lives and love once again prevails. The film itself is ridiculously soppy and lovey-dovey. However this is its charm, and having won several prestigious awards including MTV’s best onscreen kiss, the film will always be renowned as the perfect chick flick. Rachel McAdams looks like a classic Hollywood starlet in the movie with bold red lips and a strong lash line using individual false lashes. Noticeably at the beginning of the movie when ‘Allie’ is somewhat younger, the make-up is pared down by simply taking away the red lipstick and false lashes.

Here’s what the artist used to create such a flawless look:
