Cult Beauty Expert Emma Day reports on how she created JL’s look for the UK press launch of Hunger Games, pictured above… “I met Jennifer a year ago as a virtual unknown when doing her make up for the Winters Bone press launch, so I was excited to be part of the Hunger Games junket experience watching her star ascend, it couldn’t happen to a more down to earth, intelligent girl. I also loved the film!
Jennifer has almost poreless, flawless skin, I have never seen her with a spot and the texture is very even and glowing, even with all her travel commitments. I prepped her skin with Sisley Black rose mask for a bit of pampering, let it sink in and then moisturised with Origins Vitazing moisturiser, which people seem to love.
I used Chanel Aqua Lumiere in 20 as her base and created a soft smoky eye, something we did before for her previous junket and seems to suit her well – a sort of young, fresh Marianne Faithful/ Bardot look without any hard edges. Using Illamasqua Pure pigment in Static as an eye-base and in the corners of the eyes to add sparkle. I then created a soft smokey eye with Stila smudge pot in black, Dior Kohl Eyeliner in Black inside the eye and Dior New look mascara which gives very separated, long lashes. Adding my favourite medium length Eylure individual lashes along the lash line creates a natural full lash look that does not look obviously fake – I use them myself on a big night out sometimes. Her cheeks were given added glow with the gorgeous Stila Convertible Colour in Peony – I am mad for apricot blush at the moment, its so soft and pretty. Her cheeks were contoured with Jouer Glistening Brightening Powder on the top of the cheekbones and then Jouer Replenish & Protect Hydrating Bronzer which blends perfectly and is nicely matt. On Jennifers lips I used Tom Ford Nude Vanille and finished with a dab of Stila Kitten Lip Glaze in the middle of her pout for a bit of softness, so they weren’t too matt. The skin also had a mattified finish with T Leclerc Pressed Powder in Transparent and she was ready for the camera.” emma day
