Jennifer Lawrence's Concealer Faux Pas At The Oscars

Mirror checks are important, especially when you're walking the red carpet!
Jennifer Lawrence's Concealer Faux Pas At The Oscars Mirror checks are important, especially when you're walking the red carpet!

It is a tad bit unfortunate that our favorite anti-It girl Jennifer Lawrence’s makeup artist got trigger happy in concealing her under-eye circles. The gorgeous star walked the 86th Academy Awards red carpet with reverse raccoon bags. Instead of keeping the bags incognito, the half-moon shaped, pale concealer even placed her eyebags on the spotlight.

To avoid committing this beauty faux pas and to effectively conceal an all-nighter, grab a salmon-hued concealer to offset the blue tones of under-eye area. Apply concealer in an upside down triangle shape to make the unsightly circles disappear like magic: Dab gently starting from the inner corner of her eyes, down to the side of your nose, then up again to the outer corner of the eyes. Fill in the area with thin layers of concealer, and set it lightly with translucent powder (again, we want to avoid unwanted paleness and excessive brighteners). Oh, don't forget to check yourself in the mirror before you head out!
