This week was a lesson in the versatility of nude lipstick: Jennifer Lawrence glammed hers up with smoky eyes, Alison Brie went ethereal with silver eye shadow, and Nathalie Emmanuel added bronzer to create a sun-kissed glow. Here, the red-carpet beauty looks we loved this week.
Jennifer Lawrence at a screening of Serena: A soft updo and glossy lips keeps J.Law's dramatic eye makeup from looking too harsh. (After all, it's always about the mix!) If you want to try it for your wedding, keep in mind that she's not just sporting any old smoky eye makeup: Shimmery gold eye shadow brushed toward the brow bones, and white shimmer in the corners of the eyes ensure her eyes look big and bright.
Nathalie Emmanuel at the Game of Thrones Season 5 Premiere: How to feel beautiful and comfortable on your wedding day? Take a tip from Nathalie's book and embrace your natural curls, and pair it with subtle, lit-from-within makeup. To get her radiant complexion, prep with primer and apply a sheer, second-skin foundation. (We like Dior Skin Nude Air Serum.) Brush highlighter on the apples of your cheeks and bronze eye shadow on your lids for sun-kissed perfection.
Alison Brie at the Los Angeles Premiere of Get Hard: If you want to try nude lips when you have a fair complexion like Alison, choose a shade that has pink in it, and wear it with rosy blush. (It will give you the prettiest wedding-day flush!) Add lots of lashes, silver eye shadow, and a touch of brown eyeliner — it looks less severe on pale skin — and you'll look every part the ethereal bride.
