How to Get Jennifer Lawrence’s Red Carpet Glamour

Awards season is one of the biggest highlights of the year. The gowns! The shoes! The jewelry! (And, you know, the awards.) But most of all: The Beauty!

Jennifer Lawrence is one of our favorite starlets to watch glide (and sometimes stumble) down the red carpet. Her Dior Couture gowns never disappoint (marshmallow dress notwithstanding), and her next-level hair and beauty is always stunning.

At the 2016 Oscar’s, J-Law’s look was one for the books. She was stunning in a sheer, black lace gown with plunging neckline and cascading black feathers, landing her on ever Best Dressed list for the night. But, as always, her glamour continued with her hair and makeup. She opted for a pin-straight bob (so as not to overshadow the dress), and a soft but subtly sexy bronzed makeup look to complement the Dior gown.

Get the Look:

  1. Starting with our Silk foundation, apply light coverage to the entire face. One-to-two passes is plenty.
  2. Contour the hollows of your cheeks with foundation one shade darker than the rest of your face. (Starting at the temple, lightly apply the darker shade in a downward motion to your smile lines.)
  3. Use bronzer for your eye shadow. With 1-2 drops in the stylus, and holding the stylus close to your lid, apply the bronzer from the outer lid toward the inner in a gentle sweeping motion. (The motion is similar to using your traditional shadow brush.) Alternate eyes when applying, because the bronzer will darken as it dries. Alternating eyes will allow you to see the true color as you go. Layer the bronzer until you reach the desired shade.
  4. Take your favorite black liner (liquid, gel or pencil) and, starting from the center of your upper lash line, trace the eye toward the outer corner.
  5. Using a smudge-able eyeliner or dark shadow, trace the lower lash line from the outside toward the inner corner. Smudge as desired.
  6. With 2 drops of Glow in your stylus, gently highlight your inner eye area, high cheekbones, and just above your eyebrow.
  7. Finish with a brushed eyebrow (for a natural appearance) and pink gloss.
  8. Get ready to rock the red carpet!

Who was your favorite celebrity beauty look from the Oscars?

Get the Look: Oscar de la Renta

Makeup minimalism transcended the spring/summer season to overwhelm the runways of New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016. Models from Proenza Schouler to Anna Sui showed us how to rock a naked face, a graphic eyeliner and an overstated Audrey (thank you, Brandon Maxwell).

But, our favorite look of NYFW was the severe cat-eye at Oscar de la Renta.

To get the look:

  1. Start with a fresh, clean face and add a soft Glow. You’ll want to keep an understated face for the rest of this look.
  2. Draw a triangle with our Persuasion Eyeliner.
    • – Start halfway on your lash line and, extending toward the outside, draw halfway between the outer corner and your eyebrow.
    • – Finish the line by tracing the crease of your eyelid.
    • – Just inside of the outer corner of your eye, draw the bottom of the triangle and fill it in.
  3. Use Mascara just on the outer corners of the eye, where the eyeliner is. It’s effective and effortlessly sensual.
  4. Fill in your eyebrows with our new Brow Pencil to get confident, alluring brows. Using the brush, swipe up and  out.
  5. Finish with just a hint of Lip Finisher, so you don’t distract from your statement eyes.

Now, you’ve got the look. And when you got it, flaunt it!
