Get the Look: Jennifer Lawrence

Apr 05, 2012

Jennifer may be best known right now for her role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, or maybe her role as the superhero Mystique from X-Men: First Class, but she’s actually been on the scene since she was 14 years old. In 2010, Jennifer’s portrayal of Ree Dolly in Winter’s Bone earned her 27 nominations for awards , including an Oscar nomination for Best Actress, and won 9 awards from film critics all over the world. Her Red Carpet look for the 2012 Oscars is elegant and easy to recreate Here’s how to get the look:

Hair

Heather Carranza, brand manager for It Factor, tells us Jennifer Lawrence's look is simple but super sexy!  Here, she shares her fabulous tips for recreating Jennifer’s celebrity style in half the time!

Step 1: Always start with clean hair! Shampoo and condition your hair, then dry your hair on a medium setting until it is about 80% dry, concentrating on the scalp area.

Step 2: Tip!  To achieve this straight look, stay away from round brushes—they are designed to add volume.  A paddle brush is a non-vented wide flat brush designed to flatten the hair shaft, leaving your hair smooth and straight. Put the concentrator nozzle on your hairdryer, grab your paddle brush, and get to work.  Section your hair into 5 areas using the “Divide to Conquer” technique. These sections are top (without the fringe), sides from behind the ear forward and 2 sections for the back.  Start in the back and direct the medium heat airflow over the brush (never directly on the brush). Pull your brush down while keeping the airflow directed over the top. If your dryer has a cool shot setting, use it to test to see if the hair is 100% dry. If the cooled hair feels wet, it is not dry yet! (You can't tell if you're blowing hot air on the hair.)

Step 3: Take the dried section of hair and wrap around 3-4 fingers, then pin with a clip.  This will achieve a sleek look with the soft curl that Jennifer has here.  Move onto the next section and repeat step 3 & 4.  Now that your hair is 100% dry, allow it to cool completely while you do your make-up or send a couple of texts.  This process is important, as it allow the hair to cool in a curl formation, which locks it in.  Once your hair has completely cooled, take out the clips and you are on your way to your next red carpet event!  Now that is the It Factor!

Makeup

Jennifer’s touch of foundation matches her skin tone and blends down her neck. A hint of blush at the cheek and a neutral light pink lipstick set the stage to play up Jennifer’s smoky eyes. The trick to this look is lots of mascara and sultry black liner. To get a dark, thin outline, use a wet black eyeliner with a thin brush to line the inside of the eyes instead of using an eye pencil or crayon. For her eyelids, Jennifer’s makeup artist layered four neutral tones of charcoal, light gray, pink and white from the Avon Blushing Raisins Eyeshadow Quad. On her lower lid, he used the darker, smoky color and then blended the lighter gray upward. He highlighted the upper eyelid by the brow line with a light dusting of pink and a touch of white highlight just above the center of her eye. The result: a sculpted and structural eye that still managed to feel soft and smudgy. A light dusting of loose powder all over her face and neck finishes the look.

Dress

According to InStyle magazine, Jennifer’s red hot Calvin Klein gown was designed just for her by Francisco Costa. She accessorized lightly but beautifully with a Chopard bangle and studs, Jimmy Choo heels and a metallic clutch by Judith Leiber.

You need to clear things up with your best friend, and express to her what you feel because friendship requires open communication for it to last. Likewise, you should also take into consideration that not because she`s your best friend and she knows that you like this guy, she`s not allowed to be friends and eventually have a romantic relationship with this guy. Love does not follow a first come first serve basis, that`s reality.  Now, if you really love or like that person then you should be happy for him. True love means putting someone else`s happiness before your own EVEN IF you`re not part of that happiness. There`s a reason for everything, someday this will all make sense. :)
