Celebrity makeup artist and Avon Global Creative Color Director Jillian Dempsey worked with Hollywood’s newest beauty, Jennifer Lawrence, prepping her for The Hunger Games Movie Premiere in LA yesterday. The buzzed about actress was cast as Katniss Everdeen, the main character in the film adaptation of Suzanne Collin’s wildly-popular novel.
“Jennifer likes to be daring with her look. She’s not afraid to really wear makeup,” said Jillian. For Jennifer’s bold and glamorous look, Jillian put the focus on Jennifer’s eyes by lining them with a deep black liner and then layering a gold eyeshadow on the actress’s lids. Using a featherbrush, Jillian blended the edges of the liner with the gold shadow. Merging the two textures and colors helped create a multidimensional effect that appeared as a sparkling black. By darkening Jennifer’s brows, Jillian further accentuated the eyes and framed her face.
To create Jennifer’s sunkissed glow, Jillian used her new Jillian Dempsey for Avon Professional Perfect Contour Powder in Blissful to sculpt cheeks first, then layered a custom mix of two peachy cream blushes on top. This created Jennifer’s overall soft, warm complexion. For a finishing touch, Jillian opted for a nude lip— she applied a lipstain and then swiped on a nude lipstick to achieve a creamy texture.
