The stars of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ have just completed an extensive worldwide promotional tour, and while we’ve all had fun admiring and discussing Elizabeth Banks’ gorgeous gowns during the tour, her beauty looks also deserve closer inspection.
In Berlin, the actress went with a classic, sexy, brown smokey eye, a delicate nude lip, and her lob styled into tousled waves. The look is classically sexy and perfectly executed by the star. To get a gorgeous, subtle nude lip like Elizabeth’s, try Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in the shade that best matches your skintone.
In Paris, things got more playful with her hair coiffed into a modern hybrid between sculpture and bouffant–definitely Parisian, and definitely modern. As for her makeup, Elizabeth had lashes for days (obviously her MUA enlisted the use of falsies in this case), and lined her bottom lashes with blue–a trend we’ve been seeing and loving since this summer. To amp up the volume on your own lashes, try Eylure Katy Perry Eyelashes in Oh Honey!, which will give you a full fringed effect.
In Los Angeles, Elizabeth went for another classic beauty look–smooth, voluminous locks with black kohl rimmed eyes and layer-upon-layer of mascara. The key to the eyes is tight-lining both eyelids and making sure every lash is coated multiple times in jet-black mascara. As for her lips, once again, Elizabeth kept things simple, so the eyes take center stage. To get this same tightlined kohl effect on your eyes, use Guerlain ‘Khol Me Kahal’ Eyeliner.
For the final stop on the tour, New York City, Elizabeth channeled the classic 50s screen siren with a vampy red lip and black cat eye. A textured updo is the perfect modern accent to the classic makeup. To get a similar matte red lip, use NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl.
These looks are all so perfect, I have a hard time choosing a favorite, but which do you think looks best on the star?
