Jennifer Lawrence’s Best Ever Beauty Look: Recreate Her Makeup + Hair From The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 Madrid Premiere
Jennifer Lawrence really brought her beauty A-game to the Hunger Games Mockingbird Part 2 Madrid Premiere last week.
Showing off her new short lob of extra blonde hair, striking defined brows and sexy cat-eye flick – the Katniss actress had never looked better in my opinion.
If you’re a huge JLaw fan, here’s how to steal her best beauty look ever. I’ve also included all of the beauty products you will need to add to your kit!
Jennifer is wearing a light-weight full-coverage foundation that makes her skin look flawless and not too heavy or cakey. For this reason I recommend buffing in some of Too Faced newest foundation, Born This Way.
This new formula is made with coconut water so it’s super hydrating and allows your skin to breathe. Take a large blending brush and buff all over the large plans of your face and down your neckline for a seamless result.
Next up, Jlaw is rocking a really pretty pink shimmer on her cheeks that matches the dewiness of her skin. To recreate her rouged cheeks, take NARS The Multiple in Orgasm and apply a circle to both cheeks and buff it into your foundation gently (not too much or you will lose all of the pigment) with another large foundation brush.
The shimmery finish and flattering pink tone will give you a healthy glow that looks very natural.
Next up, Jennifer had very shimmery lips at the Madrid Premiere. The super glossy, frosted pink pigment matches the tone of her cheeks and fresh skin to a tee.
Match your cheeks to your lips with NARS Lip Gloss in Orgasm.

JLaw isn’t particularly known for statement brows, probably because her brow hair is so fair. Interestingly I was really drawn to her eyebrows in this beauty look. I’ll put this down to her hair being so much lighter than normal which makes her brows look darker in comparison creating contrast.
To up your brow game like Jennifer, first make sure you’ve got a great shape (visit your brow bar / beauty salon for a wax and shape). Next take a brow pencil and fill in any sparseness towards the tail of your eyebrow (the thin section towards your temples) and only lightly pencil in the head of the brow making sure to brush out any excess pigment.
I’m liking Eylure’s eyebrow pencil because it stays in place all day, comes in an array of natural hues to choose from and comes with a spoolie at the end which can help brush out excess pigment and neaten up any misbehaving brow hairs. It’s also a steal at $11.85.

Half the reason why this is such a striking beauty look for JLaw is because her eyes really pop and are well defined. Her makeup artist has created a sexy cat-eye but also widened her peepers with some clever white eyeliner.
Recreate her eye-look by first applying some grey eyeshadow all over the socket (I like the Maybelline Eye Studio Hyper Diamonds Eye Shadow Quad) and buff out with an eyeshadow brush for a seamless result.
Next take Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner and create a dramatic wing. I like to pull my eyelid taunt and start with a thin line in the inner corner. I then slowly draw it out making sure to widen the line at the end. Don’t feel pressure to get the exact wing you desire straight away. I often start with a really small thin wing and then slowly add more liquid liner to create the shape and length I like.
Next take your trusty white or cream eyeliner and line your waterline (that’s the thin area of skin above your bottom lashes). I like Rimmel’s Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Pencil because it’s so creamy and glides onto this delicate area with ease. This will help to open up your eyes making them appear more round and wide awake.
Lastly, take By Terry’s Terrybly Growth Booster Mascara and coat your top and bottom lashes twice allowing your lashes to semi-set in between coats. This mascara is seriously worth the spend. It not only creates the longest thickest lashes I’ve ever seen (meaning no need for falsies) but it’s also filled with peptides that encourage your lashes to grow longer and thicker with every wear. Genius!
Shop it: Maybelline Eye Studio Hyper Diamonds Eye Shadow Quad, $18.95. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, $29. Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Pencil, $8.50. By Terry Terrybly Growth Booster Mascara, $68.
To finish off this stunning Jennifer Lawrence look you need full, textured hair. Keep in mind you don’t have to rush off to the hairdressers and have your long mane cut into a lob or even dyed peroxide blonde (although, you can if you like!).
To create the same level of sex appeal with your hair, start with clean towel-dried strands and blow dry your locks into large barrels using a round hair brush.
Set each section with flexible hold hairspray. I like R+Co’s Outer Space Flexible Hairspray because it smells like coconut and is what hair stylists call a ‘working spray’ meaning you can set a style instantly, but then brush the hairspray out later to recreate a brand new look without feeling like your hair is weighed down with product. It never leaves you with a ‘crunchy’ finish.
Next, take some dry shampoo and spray it into the roots of your hair. I’m a fan of Batiste’s Original Dry Shampoo which can be picked up practically anywhere!
With a fine tooth comb, create some volume by back brushing sections of hair and then loosening each part with your fingertips to create sexy texture and to remove any excess dry shampoo that might still appear white.
Take the same fine tooth comb and create a centre part thats 4cms long. Push the front strands of hair behind your ears like JLaw. Now, with the fine tooth comb, brush back any hair past the 4cm centre part towards the back of your head and spray in place with your flexible hold hair spray.
