HOW TO: Recreate Jennifer Lawrence's Mockingjay P2 Premiere Look
With the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and the media storm which surrounded it, Jennifer Lawrence has been on our TV screens and infiltrating our news feeds more often than laughing cats recently, so it's no surprise that her life and her outfits have been under more scrutiny than ever. If you know me, you'll know that I'm a bloody huge fan of the tell-it-like-it-is star, so much so that I probably know more about her embarrassing red carpet moments than I do about financialisation, which I'm meant to be writing an essay on right now. Whoops.
HOWEVER this means I have had ample opportunity to scour the net to find which beauty products our top #bae uses in front of the cameras (do people still say bae? No.. okay) and then subsequently had enough time to check my bank balance and decide that there was no way I was going to be able to afford any of the stuff on the list... you can breathe a sigh of relief now, bank balance. 
I managed to raid my make up bag and complete this look in only 10 minutes this morning and at a cost of a whole £1 for the lipstick which was picked up yesterday in Superdrug, which I think is pretty good going bearing in mind I have mid length brown hair and spotty skin which Jennifer Lawrence doesn't... unless she's in full on Katniss wig and everything and fighting for her life which here she is not. (Unless you count the disgusting treatment of celebrities which is a topic for another time.)
So without further ado, here's my high street heroes which helped me recreate Miss Lawrence's look from the New York City premiere without the designer budget:
For the face: Rimmel London Lasting Finish Foundation, Rimmel London SunShimmer Bronzing Compact Powder
For the eyes: Collection by Little Mix 'All About The Eyes' palette, Collection 'Eyes Uncovered' Nude Palette, Collection Fast Stroke Eyeliner, Rimmel London ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara (much better than Benefit) 
For everything else: MUA Lipstick in Shade 2, (bought especially for this and so worth the £1) Babyliss Curling Wand
And here is my face after I removed all of the purple and orange-ness from my face, aka it's natural and bare, just how my Grandma likes it. Hopefully you liked this attempt at me trying to look like Jennifer Lawrence but instead looking like myself with slightly curled hair and purple lips, if you like semi decent writing please check out my other posts as they're much better than this one as I've become a blogging avox (yes, nice Hunger Games reference there) aka for months on end I've been unable to write anything on the internet, I've become mute. Yet just like Panem I've had a rebellion in my head and my drafts posts folder is growing back together like Katniss and Peeta so expect proper, well written posts soon. Yay.
