jennifer_lawrence_hunger_games_la_premiere_make_up.jpgJennifer Lawrence looked gorgeous at the Los Angeles premiere of The Hunger Games. Taking inspiration from her amazing floor length Prabal Gurung gown, the actress used the same burnished gold and black hues featured in it to create a statement smoky eye: make up artist Jillian Dempsey lined her eyes with black liner and then blended it into a gold shadow to create a multidimensional look. The strong eye was balanced out with nude lips, sunkissed skin and a glowing, peachy blush created with two shades.

While her make up was nice, it was only when she turned around that I was really impressed. Look at her hair!


Amazing. Jennifer wore her blonde hair in a low plaited chignon (a reference to the braid her character Katniss Everdeen wears in the film), embellished with two sparkly gold Jennifer Behr headbands that were wound around and into the braids. Such a pretty hairstyle, even the tiny details helped to add to the style too - like the subtle, almost unnoticeable loose plaits running through the crown into the bun. Can't wait to see what she does for the London premiere tonight!
