Celebrity Makeup: Jennifer Lawrence
If the name Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t ring a bell, you’ll probably remember her as the young Mystique from the last X-Men movie. Now, the spotlight is on her as she stars on the much awaited novel turned movie- The Hunger Games. Here she is at the Los Angeles movie premiere looking gorgeous and radiant in her smokey eye makeup with minimal to almost bare face and lips.
It’s easy to get this look and it would look amazing especially when worn during cocktail parties or any night time events. First, to be able to pull off the bare face beautifully, you need to start off with a clean and well moisturized face. Apply a makeup base before applying your favorite foundation product. Conceal all problem areas like blemishes or dark circles and set with a translucent powder.
As you can see, Jennifer’s blue eyes stood out even more with her smokey eye without necessarily using black eyeshadow. Here she used dark browns with hints of olive greens. Apply a dark olive green eyeshadow all over your lids and blend it outwards with a dark brown shade on the outer corner of your eyes to get that smokey effect. Line your eyelids and your lower lids with dark brown eye pencil and smudge with a q-tip to get the soft edges. Curl your lashes and apply a two to three coats of mascara. Give warmth to your face by sweeping a small amount of blush on your cheeks and finish your entire look with a nude lip gloss.
