Lupita Nyong'o makes shimmer look sophisticated, Jennifer Lawrence brings back the headband, and Jessica Chastain perfects the black-tie beach wave. Here, the red-carpet beauty looks we loved this week.
Jessica Chastain at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Governors Awards: So many celebs are going for pearlescent eye shadow, and we love it for bridal. It makes your eyes stand out, but is soft enough to wear with bright red lipstick. To give her overall look an air of effortlessness, she refrained from perfectly coiled curls and went for a loose, wavy hairstyle — so French girl chic, non?
Lupita Nyong'o at the Glamour 2014 Women of the Year Awards: Metallic eyes, shimmery cheeks, and deep red lips work so well together if you do it right. Luckily, we have the scoop on what makeup artist Nick Barose used to create Lupita's look: Lancôme's Color Design 5-Pan Eye Shadow Palette in Kissed by Gold and Le Lipstique Lip Pencil in Sheer Chocolate with L'Absolu Rouge Lip Color in Jezebel. The result? An illuminating look with hits of muted color.
Jennifer Lawrence at the World Premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1: J. Law's updo is a great option for brides with short hair. Her cropped locks are twisted into a little chignon at the nape of her neck, and a black elastic headband is cleverly used to add volume at the top and keep stray hairs from falling out of place. Soft black eyeliner, rosy cheeks, and pink lips add a touch of sixties inspiration — hitting just the right note between modern and retro.
