Movie makeovers are just the best. You go through the whole film thinking the person no one gave a second look, would simply go under the radar -- until that moment. The scene-stealing moment where that same character enters the room and all eyes are on her. The guy that passed this hot new girl over starts to kick himself, and the mean girls are sent running for the hills. Gotta love what a little hair and makeup can do! Our Top 10 Makeover Movie Moments Countdown rolls on!
At #7: Allison Reynolds in the Breakfast Club
Who doesn't love this movie? It's the 80's classic about troubled teens who have to spend their precious weekends at school in detention, thanks to Principal Vernon and their restless adolescent behavior. From all different walks of high school life, these fab five were classified simply as a Brain, an Athlete, a Basket Case, a Princess, and a Criminal, but to each other, they would always be the Breakfast Club after baring their souls and climbing into our hearts.
And what a difference a day in detention makes. The group's Basket Case, troubled student Allison Reynolds, does a total makeup about face by the time school lets out. Reynolds enters the school library to do her time, fit to be tied thanks to a difficult home life where she's often ignored. In the hopes of gaining some sort of attention, Allison opts to shock her classmates with weird food habits and jaw-dropping statements, but we find out by movie's end, she's got a whole other type of shock value up her sleeve.
Thanks to Popular high school Princess, Claire Standish (actress Molly Ringwald), Allison goes from basket case to bombshell! Her chocolate brown tresses are held back by a flower-adorned white headband to reveal softly highlighted cheeks, nude lips, and look-at-me lashes. For this look, the makeup is simple and goes to show less is truly more. With lips and cheeks letting the eyes do most of the makeover talking, skip the eyeliner and simply coat lashes to compliment soft pastel eyeshadows.
Check out Allison's makeover scene below, along with a fun makeup tutorial for your Breakfast Club fix.
