Jennifer Lawrence is one of my girl crushes, so I felt the need to do a make up look inspired by her. Because of my face shape, eye shape, eye colour etc, I wont be able to look exactly like her - But boy will I try! I shy away from any style of smokey eyes as I feel is makes me eyes appear a lot smaller than they already are. The make up look I did is a little more subtle than Jennifer's, but you can intense it for a more bold look - Which I don't think I could pull off! I kept my products to a minimum so this look could be achieved by any level of make up skill.
Let's get started!
Hello world. This is me with no make up. First of all, our Jen has beautiful radiant skin and has a lovely natural dewiness to it. Because of this I will just cover up any imperfections with Maybelline Fit Me concealer in shade 15. I will leave any finishing powder until the end.
For the eyes I used the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette. I used the shade M.I.A. up to the crease. As you can see from the picture above, I have very small eyelids so I didn't need much of this. I used the Calvin Klein Shadow Brush to apply the shadow. I also used MUA Eyeshadow Primer - but this is optional.
From the same palette I then used Deeper to blend out the M.I.A. shade. The shadow comes out to the outer corner of the eye and then over the socket to meet the inner corner of the eye. I used the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush to blend out the shadow. Then using the Real Techniques Brow Brush I carried on the shadow under the eye and up to the inner corner. Then using Max Factor's Kohl Pencil in Black I lined my bottom and upper line. When applying the pencil to the bottom, make sure you go into the tear duct and blend out it out a bit with some of the product left on the brow brush. I then used the pencil on my lid and up to the crease and blended it out with the same crease brush. If you have a larger lid, don't take the eyeliner up that high.
Her lashes are pretty natural, so I just used MUA Mega Volume Mascara to create natural lashes. I have rather long bottom lashes, but as you can see, Jen doesn't.
She wears a natural colour on the lips. I opted for MyFace Cosmetics lipstick in Vintage Pink as it's the perfect nude for my skin tone.
For the cheeks I used Sleek's Face Form Palette in Medium, and used the highlighter and bronzer mixed together and blushed over the apples of my cheeks, and up to my brows. For the brows I used Illamasqua's Eyeshadow in Boomerang with Ecotools Brow Brush to gently add some colour. Her brows aren't overly defined. I then finished off with Mac's Pearlmatte Face Powder in In For A Treat all over the face to set the concealer and add some subtle shimmer, and then added Illamasqua's Eyeshadow in Moonflower to add some dewiness to the nose, forehead, cheeks and chin.
So there it is!
