Thanks to some tips from Jennifer Lawrence’s makeup artist who prepped her for the Oscars, Jillian Dempsey, I have re-created the look using affordable makeup dupes.
Start with a matte foundation in a complimentary color to your natural tone. Fair skin is in, so opt for a shade lighter when making the choice. Brush on a light shimmery definition powder over your foundation ready skin.
Jillian mixed grey, taupe and teal shadows to create a very unique look. She applied them in layers “until it was right.” It will be hard to duplicate that, but you can experiment to best compliment yourself. Try a mixture of e.l.f.’s Custom Eyes shadows in ‘Moondust’- taupe, ‘Dusk’ – gray and ‘Navy’ –darker blue. These are a $1 per pan for a total of $3. Start with your taupe shade and then layer on the gray and blue tones. Focus on your lids and leave the brow bone bare, but take the color just past the outer corner of the eyes.
Next, line eyes with Wet N’ Wild Color Icon Liner Brow & Eye Liner Pencil – $1. Line the top rim of your lashline and trace down to your bottom lashline stopping midway. Use a Q-tip to blend it outward and soften the look. Top it off with a pair of Ardell false lashes $7.50. You can find a complete step-by-step application guide by Clicking HERE…
For Lawrence’s lips, Jillian smeared on a clear lip balm to start and noted that “Jennifer has very beautiful lips naturally, and I decided that I didn’t want to change the color.” Instead of using a heavy lip color, she simple “added a light Dior gloss with very faint pink tint.” She didn’t note the exact color, but Avon’s Ultra Color Rich Lip Gloss in ‘Pink Icicle’ – $8.
I pride myself on keeping the beauty stop budget friendly when I can. Sometimes it is totally worth spending the extra cash on the high end goods. This look can be done in Dior shades, MAC shadows or Tom Ford metallics too.
