Jeanette Turner's "Geeky" Beauty Look on Cruel Summer
The person who goes through arguably the biggest evolution in Cruel Summer is Jeanette. As an outcast turned new "it" girl turned public enemy number-one, Jeanette drastically changes her hair and makeup to fit in with her social status every year. When we're first introduced to her, her hair is in long, crimped waves. The goal was to make it look like Jeanette brushed out her natural curls. "It's prior to her awakening, so to speak — before her braces came off, her glasses came off, her skin clears up, and she learns to style her hair in '94," said Kirkpatrick. "She's just a geeky girl."
Because she's not really interested in beauty yet, her makeup was similarly subtle with slightly rosy cheeks, bushy eyebrows, and hardly anything on the skin. "That's her real innocent look," said Trujillo. "But you wonder, how innocent is she really?"
