Every time a new image is released from The Hunger Games, fans react like it’s a gift from their sponsor flying in by silver parachute. (If you don’t know what that means, you still have 55 days to read the book before the premier.)
But we have to admit, even we squealed a bit over this new picture, which shows Katniss before the chariot ride in the opening ceremonies. Her dress, which earns her the nickname “Girl on Fire,” is amazing—but what we’re really impressed with is the smoldering makeup. In the book, Katniss describes her face in this scene as “relatively clear of makeup, just a bit of highlighting here and there.” But from the looks of the photo, makeup artist Ve Neill either didn’t read the book (we’re guessing probably not so likely) or took some creative license (and we don’t mind!). Here’s how she got the look:
Eyes: Neill used M.A.C. Eyeshadow in Orange to create the flare in the outer corners before lining her eyes in black cream liner. She added Urban Decay False Lashes in Lure for extra intensity. “The more makeup you put on a beautiful woman, the more exotic and mature she looks,” said Neill. “We wanted to keep her looking really youthful.”
Cheeks: Neill drew attention to her “beautiful, heart-shaped face” by highlighting her cheekbones with M.A.C. Lustre Drops in Sunrush (a liquid gold highlighter).
Lips: Those lips (which spend the last half of the Games kissing Peeta) were amped up with L’Oréal Infallible Lipgloss in Fiery (a bronzey pink). “We wanted it to be clean, crisp beauty with touches of color,” Neill said.
What do you think of Katniss’s makeup? Do you love it, or do you wish Neill had stayed more true to the book? And most of all, would you wear it?

MTV has an article on Jennifer’s movie, The Hunger Games, being the most anticiapted movie of 2012. Jennifer plays the lead Katniss Everdeen and the article is here:
Vampire mama-drama, a Zac Efron tearjerker, a new gothic fairytale and a veritable horde of hot naked men: Yep, there was some stiff competition for the primo spot on our list of the most-anticipated movies on deck for the coming year! But with a fervent fan following, an amazing cast and one of the most inventive plot premises ever snatched up by Hollywood, not even the final film in “The Twilight Saga” or the promise of extended footage of Joe Manganiello’s bare-naked butt could compete with the thrilling first film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ bestselling trilogy of YA books—and that’s why “The Hunger Games” is our hands-down No. 1 pick for Hottest Movie of 2012.
It’s hard to say what’s more exciting about finally seeing “The Hunger Games” on the big screen: the wild costumery? The action-packed arena sequences? The incredible cast of young up-and-comers? The crowd-pleasing cameos by Stanley “The Tooch” Tucci and Woody “I Make Sadness Hilarious” Harrelson? Or, perhaps, the glorious feature film debut of Seneca Crane’s beard?!
…Okay, yeah, it’s obviously the beard. But the rest of it doesn’t hurt—nor does the sure-to-be-sizzling chemistry between Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth as the film’s central trio of dystopian teens. (Hey, we know how you dig a good love triangle.)
But whether you tune in for the romance, the revolution, or the sight of career tribute Clove getting stung in the eyeballs by a gajillion angry tracker-jackers, there’s no doubt that the odds are ever in your favor…of liking the hell out of this movie when it hits theaters in March of next year.
Jennifer has made it on the list of InStyles most dramatic celebrity hair style make over which you can see the full list of eleven here
So which do you prefer blonde or brunette Jen?
Forbes has a list of the ten actors to watch in 2010 and Jennifer is on the list as well as her two male leads, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.
Of the three main actors in the upcoming Hunger Games movie, Lawrence has the most to win … or lose. The film will only work for fans if Lawrence can achieve the balance of toughness and caring present in her character, Katniss.
Jennifer was voted on of Glamours break out stars of 2011 and makes the list at number 18!
Jennifer Lawrence appeared seemingly out of nowhere to earn an Oscar nomination this year for Winter’s Bone, propelling her to instant It Girl status. She’s gone on to star as Mystique in X-Men: First Class and play Anton Yelchin’s American girlfriend in the amazing Like Crazy. But the role Jennifer will likely be best known for is still to come: She’ll play the heroine Katniss Everdeen in the highly anticipated Hunger Games film trilogy, the first of which comes out in March 2012.
MTV has an article on the top ten Hunger Games moments of 2011 which is pretty cool. There’s a couple of moments involving Jennifer, as she is the female lead, playing Katniss Everdeen.
2.Jennifer Lawrence Is Katniss Everdeen
The Reaping then began in earnest, with seemingly every young Hollywood actress vying for the coveted role of District 12’s female tribute. Would it be Hailee Steinfeld? Kaya Scodelario? Abigail Breslin? In the end, MTV News had the pleasure of revealing that then-20-year-old Jennifer Lawrence, who nabbed an Oscar nomination for her work in 2010’s “Winter’s Bone,” would enter the arena as the much-loved heroine.
4.First Look at Lawrence as Katniss
Salivating fans didn’t have to wait too long for their first taste of Lawrence as Katniss, as she posed for the cover of Entertainment Weekly, flaunting the tribute’s soon-to-be-iconic uniform. The styled snap quieted many critics who’d said the actress was too blond, too tall, too pretty or too whatever for the role.
EOnline! had an article on the good girls and Bad Ass girls of Hollywood and which do Hollywood favour?
Or if that’s not reason enough, take Jennifer Lawrence. J.Law literally skinned a squirrel in Winter’s Bone and now battles the boys in The Hunger Games—a true beauty without one girly role in sight.
And not only do these chicks have the ‘tude to match the tough, but they are now praised for their honesty, and fully accepted for their Vicey behavior.
Perhaps, it’s a much needed surge of girl power or just the simple conclusion that really good girls rarely exist in this town?
Fan share has a really intresting article on Jennifer and what her mothers influence is like the fact that Jennifer’s mother had read both The Hunger Games and Winters Bone
21 year old X-Men: First Class actress, Jennifer Lawrence, has revealed how her mother has had a big impact on her career so far, helping her to choose which roles she decides to audition for. Jennifer admitted that, while she is a fan of The Hunger Gamesbooks, it was in fact her mother who read the book first and fell in love with the character Katniss.Lawrence explained, “I had read the books before I even knew I would be auditioning for the movie, and was a huge fan of the material. Actually, my mom read them first and thought it was an incredible role and story. She did the same thing with Winter’s Bone, so she must be a clairvoyant, or just has really great taste.” Jennifer won an Oscar nomination for her performance in Winter’s Bone.She added, “Katniss is an incredible character: she’s a hunter but not a killer, a 16-year-old who’s being forced into the arena. These kids are killing one another only because if they don’t they’ll die. It’s needless, pointless, unjustified violence. It’s heartbreaking. When I auditioned, I told director Gary Ross, ‘I understand if you don’t hire me, but please remember that after Katniss shoots a bow and kills someone, her face cannot be badass.’”Jennifer concluded, “So there’s nothing cool about her. It’s not like she looks around the arena and goes, ‘Yeah, I got this.’ I think she looks around helplessly, and thinks, ‘I made a promise to my sister that I would survive, now I have to kill in order to do so.’” Jennifer Lawrence can be seen portraying Katniss when The Hunger Gamesis released on March 23, 2012.
CNN has wrote an article that has quite a bit on the hunger games and a little on Jennifer:
When Lionsgate announced that Jennifer Lawrence had been cast to play Katniss, both fans and critics questioned the choice, believing she was too old, too blond and too pretty to play a ruthless warrior. However, if her success in “Winter’s Bone” and “X-Men: First Class” is any indication of her range, Lawrence has the potential to nail this role and pave the way for kick-butt female heroines.
Teen Vogue has an article on Jennifer and Emma Watson’s minimalist style Calvin Klein Collection gowns.
The two starlets both rocked minimalist Calvin Klein Collection gowns to major red carpet events: Emma at a screening of the latest Harry Potter flick and Jennifer at the Oscars. But which actress rocks the simple design best? Emma compliments the dresses classic shape and clean lines by opting for a sophisticated black version. She sticks to the basics when it comes to accessories, choosing elegant black heels and a barely-there bracelet as her only piece of jewelry but her fashion-forward pixie cut adds some youthful edginess to the look! Jennifer, on the other hand, gives the dress’ minimalist shape a jolt of energy by opting for a version in fire engine red. She makes sure the gown is the main attraction by opting for quieter hair and accessories–her loose locks and gold clutch are the perfect counterpart to this notice-me-now frock!
According to In Style UK Jennifer is one of the women to watch next year. Magazine quotes;

Jennifer Lawrence; the bombshell
Among the others to watch is Mila Kunis, Emma Stone, Melanie Laurent, Teresa Palmer and Jessica Chastain.
The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is making more and more headlines these days, as the March 23rd release of the movie gets closer and closer. And now she’s featured in the number one spot on Men’s Health magazine’s “101 Hottest Women of 2011”issue.
We freely admit there aren’t many women who could turn us on while covered head to toe in blue paint—it’s just not our thing—and fewer still who could arouse us with little more than a bow and arrow, yet 20-year old Oscar-nominee Lawrence does both as Mystique in X-Men: First Class and as Katniss Everdeen in next year’s hotly-anticipated Hunger Games.
Celebs.gather.com talks about Jennifer today as it is her 21st birthday and how she has rised to fame in only 12 months. Part of the article reads:
‘Most recently, fans have seen Jennifer Lawrence in X-Men: First Class as Mystique. The young actress has several films in the works too. House at the End of the Street will be released, and next year she will appear in Hunger Games. She has been busy. Like Crazy premiered earlier this year as well.
This young, natural talent has certainly made a name for herself early. In fact, she is the second youngest person to ever be nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars, which is quite an honor for somebody who has never even taken an acting class.’

A website called Ain’t it Cool News spoke to director Drake Doremus, about his new movie, Like Crazy. The movie stars Jennifer Lawrence as Sam, along side her The Beaver co-star Anton Yelchin.
The article reads:
‘Ain’t it cool news: And I see Jennifer Lawrence is in the film, which threw me for a second, because I’d just seen her and Anton in THE BEAVER. Does her character respresent the real world crashing in on this long-distance relationship?
DD: She is. In a way, she’s kind of a perfect girlfriend for him and kind of the perfect person and she embodies what we think he would want or what we think he’d be with, but in reality there are X factors that you can’t replace in a person. And she’s sort of the perfect girlfriend in a way, but there’s something about it that doesn’t give you everything you need, you know?
Ain’t it cool news: How soon after you saw her in WINTER’S BONE did you want her in your movie or did Anton recommend her?
DD: Right away! She was the perfect actress for this style of filmmaking, because she’s so committed to the moment and so grounded, and she is always doing what’s necessary–nothing more and nothing less, which is exactly what I like in a performance. She’s just magnificent, and I was very fortunate to be able to have her in the film.’
New York magazine interviewed Elizabeth Banks about her character Effie and The Hunger Games and in the interview, she mentions how Jennifer Lawrence had brought her to tears during the reaping scene.
‘Anyway, Jen [Lawrence] is perfectly cast. She’s amazing. The real deal. Honestly, when we shot the Reaping, I wept.’
