The biggest news of the Oscar nominations ceremony was obvi, uh, the nominations. But we couldn’t keep our eyes off Jennifer Lawrence’s matching blue eye shadow and dress. This matchy-matchy thing is normally a major beauty DON’T. However, The Hunger Games star totally worked this look.
There are a few things here that make this beauty look a DO:
1. Jennifer wears an outfit that includes blue. If it were a solid blue dress this would be a whole different story! Always avoid matching your eye shadow to a monochromatic look.
2. The blue eye shadow is well blended into a smoky eye. That’s key to using any bright eye shadow. Blend! Blend! Blend! Remember, you want to enhance your look, not take away from it!
3. Jennifer’s peachy lips and cheeks balance out the cool tones of the blue eye shadow. If you’re going to copy this look, make sure to stick with a peach-colored sheer lip gloss or lip tint. Go light-handed on the peach blush on the apples of your cheeks and blend back toward your ears. Or if you’re afraid of blush, you can use a little bit (not a Snooki amount) of bronzer instead.
Want to venture into blue eye shadow territory? Try a light blue that’s easy to blend like the lightest shade in Cover Girl Eye Enhancers 3-Kit Shadows in Blazing Blues.
On a side note: We love the rest of Jennifer’s look! Those sweet waves go with the casual vibe of her eyelet dress. What a great way to welcome in (we wish it was already) spring and a brand new movie franchise we can’t wait to watch! BTW have you checked out the Capitol Couture Tumblr yet?
