Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘The Hunger Games Catching Fire’ Promo Tour Beauty Looks

When Jennifer Lawrence debuted a new pixie cut mere days before heading into the promotional tour for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, all of us red carpet trackers drew a united gasp of excitement in anticipation of how the star would style her new ‘do for her highly photographed next few weeks. And, I think I can speak for us all when I say that she not only didn’t disappoint in the hair department, but she also gave us some stunning makeup looks, as well. While her co-star, Elizabeth Banks kept things a bit more safe, Jennifer played to her young age and really took some risks, which paid off quite well for her.

In Madrid, the star really played up the piecey cut of her pixie, and went for a daring, angular, spiked out look–which she pulls off amazingly well. For her makeup, the inky blue and black modern cat eye is perfectly balanced with a downright girly berry-stained, glossy lip. To achieve skyhigh, sculptural hold in your own hair, try AG Hair Cosmetics Style Welding Paste Extreme Hold.

In Paris, Jennifer took another risk, and ended up looking as high-fashion and intrinsically ‘Parisian’ as Elizabeth Banks did that night (link to the Elizabeth Banks beauty round-up post). By starting off with a pale foundation, Jennifer’s makeup artist ensured that every other aspect of the beauty look would really draw the eye. Her ultra-dark red lip, the perfectly sculpting cheek bones, and the kohl-rimmed eyes are stunning, and the slicked down hair completes this look that really does deserve every bit of buzz it’s been getting. To get a lip as vampy as Jennifer’s, try Dior’s Addict Extreme Lipstick in Black Tie.

In Los Angeles, Jennifer’s look is slightly reminiscent of her Madrid look, but is definitely a softer version. Her hair has a slightly tousled effect, while her eyes are a more muted, smokey blue. Her glossy pink lips are also a deeper hue of pink. If you’re interested in emulating Jennifer’s look, this is probably a bit ‘safer’ for us mere mortals, since everything is softer. To recreate her smokey blue eyes, try experimenting with the shades in Dior’s 5-Colour Designer All-In-One Artistry Palette in Navy Design–it should have every colour you need to get the gorgeous look.

In New York, Jennifer further experimented with the range of her pixie by pushing much of it forward and leaving the ends wispy. Her makeup had a warm, golden quality to it, due in part to the bronzed cheeks, and almost naturally-coloured lipstick. The heavy, brown eyeshadow is winged out above and below the eye to complete the warm and sultry look. To get similar contouring on your cheeks, go with a matte bronzer like Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder.

Jennifer Lawrence Hunger Games Catching Fire Promo Tour

Jennifer Lawrence had an epic run promoting the first ‘Hunger Games’ movie, but from your comments I didn’t get a sense that she lived up to your expectations for ‘Catching Fire’.

We all knew that it would be a Diorfest, with breaks for the photocalls and press conferences, but it seemed that many of you also couldn’t warm to her new haircut.

While I share your disappointment with her London premiere Dior Couture frock, things did get better.

The LA premiere Dior Couture gown is still my favourite, with Madrid’s Dior and Alexander McQueen and Rome’s Dior and Proenza Schouler outings, plus the Paris premiere look ranking highly in my estimation.

Jennifer Lawrence In Thakoon & Burberry Prorsum - Good Morning America

Despite reports of her feeling under the weather, Jennifer Lawrence arrived bright and early for a taping of Good Morning America on Thursday in New York City.

The 23-year-old actress, who appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman the day before, fared much better as she made her way to the GMA studios wearing a Thakoon Spring 2014 look consisting of a sleeveless silk shirt featuring an elongated shirt-tail hem with a white-and-grey striped pencil skirt.

Opting for the same Narciso Rodriguez black-and-white sandals from the night before and EF Collection jewels, she kept cosy wearing a Burberry Prorsum tailored peplum coat.

Much improved over her Letterman appearance, or are the sandals still bothering you?

Jennifer Lawrence In J Mendel - Late Show with David Letterman

Prior to the New York premiere for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, Jennifer Lawrence made a guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’.

Braving the cold, the actress wore a J. Mendel Spring 2014 two-piece look consisting of a long-sleeved leaf-motif-embroidered tulle crop top with a black silk skirt with organza inserts, styled with a much-needed black Burberry leather-and-shearling jacket.

I really wanted to like this look, but I’m not a fan of the skirt as I’m starting to get slightly fatigued by the sheer-insert trend.

A nice pair of cigarette pants would’ve been preferred.

Narciso Rodriguez black-and-white sandals, Melinda Maria earrings and a pink pout completed her look.

Jennifer Lawrence In Christian Dior - 'The Hunger Games Catching Fire' New York PremiereJennifer Lawrence took to the red carpet at ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ New York City premiere at AMC Lincoln Square Theatre on Wednesday night.

Dressed in Dior, of course, she took a slightly more understated turn with an ensemble from the Resort 2014 collection. The black wool, tuxedo-style jacket was styled with a pink and lime knitted bra top underneath, along with a black mini clutch and black, ankle-strap Manolo Blahnik sandals.

Exchanging what has become her signature ear cuffs, she played up the delightful hues of her bandeau top with Dior Fine Jewelry’s Gourmande pastel yellow gold and green beryl earrings and an Oui pink gold, diamonds and morganite ring.

A more bold, piece-y interpretation of her pixie ‘do accompanied the lighthearted look that seemed suited to what was obviously a more casual and fun NYC dress code. I love that she softened the edge with a pretty, rose-tinged smokey eye and a pink lip.

How does her latest look fare, in your opinion?

Jennifer Lawrence In Christian Dior Couture - 'The Hunger Games Cathching Fire' LA Premiere

Jennifer Lawrence also kept up her 100% record of wearing Dior while attending the LA premiere of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday evening.

The actress selected a Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture dark-and-light-grey knitted evening gown, which she wore with a black bodysuit and black belt.

Now, those disliking the sheer trend will no doubt be rolling their eyes right about now, but I’m delighted that she’s not afraid to take risks.

For a while, I was worried that her promo tour might be a bit one note, but she’s managed to mix things up and keep things interesting, staying true to her current style without going overboard.

Black Brian Atwood platform sandals, a black Roger Vivier clutch and another pair of wing-tip earrings by Anita Ko accessorized her look, with a hot-pink lip colour and choppy layers styling her cropped ‘do completing her look.
