Get The Look: Jennifer Lawrence’s Sexy Cannes Makeup

May 23, 2013

We adore Jennifer Lawrence’s sexy, fresh makeup at the Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of Plains Indian) premiere at Cannes, pairing cat eye makeup with a pop of pink lip colour. Here’s how celebrity makeup artist Kay Montano created the look.


“I started with Diego Dalla Palma Lifting Effect Cream Foundation in Natural Beige – on the centre of her nose and worked outwards,” said Kay.

Next, Kay used Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer under Jennifer’s eyes and Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer around her nose to remove any redness.

Jennifer’s T-zone was then powdered with Jurlique Rose Silk Finishing Powder – but not her cheeks, as Kay wanted to leave them looking dewy.

Kay then applied Autograph Pure Colour Powder Blush in Pale Blush to the apples of her cheeks and outwards up her cheekbones with a fluffy blusher brush.


Kay lined Jennifer’s eyes with a soft brown kohl pencil, smudging it with her fingers on the lower lashes. “I tend to always do a tick on her using the Autograph Quick Drying Black Liner,” said Kay. She also did a very fine line on the bottom lashes.

Kay applied CoverGirl Flamed Out Mascara all over Jennifer’s lashes and then glued Eylure Individual Lashes in Medium “on the edges of the eyelash to almost to three-quarters of the way along” using Duo adhesive.


Kay used Diego Dalla Palma Chubby Lip & Cheek in Geranium Red on Jennifer’s lips. “Because she was wearing that black and white dress, it just needed that pop of colour otherwise it looks too grown up,” she said.
