After reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo about a month ago, I've been SO excited to see the David Fincher version of the movie. Yesterday I went to see it and was not disappointed. I might even have to see it again in the theaters because there's so much to take in. What was most amazing was the transformation of actress Rooney Mara in her role as Lisbeth Salander. She truly became the character and I forgot I was watching an actress.

To achieve the look of Salander, renowned makeup artist Pat McGrath used numerous makeup techniques, coming up with as many as 200 different versions of a smoky eye. CoverGirl Liquiline Blast in Black Fire and Brown Blaze were highlighted with CoverGirl Intense ShadowBlast in Brown Bling. McGrath then smudged in Dolce & Gabbana The Eyeshadow Quad in Volcano and CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Eyeshadow in Forever Fig

While promoting the film, Mara's red carpet looks haven't been too shabby either.

I love the chic and classic look of Mara's face on the red carpet. She reminds me of Jennifer Connelly here.

  1. I need her eyelashes!
    Thanks for stopping by Fashion Truffles yesterday. I'm now following :)

  2. Wow, her transformation is simply fascinating! I haven´t seen the movie yet, but the pictures I saw were mesmerizing! Then again, I really loved the original Noomi Rapace´s performance, so it´ll be interesting to compare...

    Happy Monday!
