Jennifer Lawrence may have more cache as Hollywood’s resident bro girl, but when the actress isn’t recounting relatable anecdotes about her love for pizza, beer and reality television, she owns the red carpet in the beauty department.
Whether she’s flaunting her natural hair texture (the perfect combination of curly and wavy) or defining her baby blues with a classic smokey eye, JLaw always manages to grab our attention.
Here are 10 times the actress has nailed red carpet beauty…

Jennifer Lawrence took a well-deserved break from all things red carpet while the world was in meltdown (smart). But when the actress made her return, she did so with Don’t Look Up co-star Leo Dicaprio on her arm (yet another intelligent decision from JLaw). What a way to make an entrance. As far as makeup goes, the mum-to-be kept things radiant and natural with a your-lips-but-better hue of lipstick and an eye-enhancing gleam of shimmer eyeshadow *chefs kiss*.

This is hands down one of our favourite beauty moments in Lawrence’s career of red carpet excursions. The bronzed smokey eye and loose, textured chignon is the pinnacle of undone, chic glamour. In layman’s terms: the woman looks expensive.

If you’re ever too scared to pair a bold eye look with a daring lip, just remember that Lawrence wore this look on the red carpet for the 2018 Oscars and absolutely bodied the challenge. Is it too much to call her an inspiration? Maybe, but that’s a hill we’re willing to die on.

While promoting her film Red Sparrow in Cannes, Lawrence debuted a va-va-voom look reminiscent of Liz Hurley’s head-turning Versace safety pin dress. But if you took your eyes off of the 31-year-old’s killer curves for a second then you’d probably notice her equally mind-blowing blue eye makeup. Iconic.

Lawrence added expertly positioned fresh blooms to her romantic wavy updo for the Mother premiere, accenting her floral accessories with a monochromatic makeup palette of pink-hued eyeshadow and coral lipstick. The embodiment of mother nature herself.

When in doubt, whip a smokey eye out. Add a bit of sparkle and glitter if you really want to make an impact, just like Lawrence did here (and while literally dripping in crystallised cobwebs no less).

Demure, classic and simply stunning. This elegant blowout and berry red lipstick is understated and refined in all the right ways.

If you thought we’d take his opportunity to wax poetic about yet another excellent smokey eye from Lawrence, you’d be right. But we also think it’s fair to give airtime to the actress’ creamy hair colour. Would the real hair colourist behind JLaw’s blonde locks please stand up?
November 16 2015
Undoubtedly, another great hair day for old mate Jen. We’d be remiss not to talk about her berry bright shade of red lipstick. If we said we weren’t going to hunt down the exact shade to humiliate our bare-lipped relatives at Christmas, then we’d be lying.
February 27 2011
We think it’s fair to say that this is the moment we all fell a little bit in love with Jennifer Lawrence. The actress was serving knockout blonde bombshell energy à la Pam Anderson in Baywatch when she made her first Oscars red carpet appearance for her performance in Winter’s Bone.
