While acting out their roles, the 2013 Oscar-nominated actresses found themselves in war zones, homeless, nearly drowned and fighting desperately for their lives. Their looks are raw and real.
And lately, we aren't seeing flawless skin, delicately placed blush or long, lush eyelashes. Yet, we still can't take our eyes off of them! These are characters passionately fighting for what they believe in and doing whatever it takes to save those they love. And that is beautiful!
This year's beauty trends from the most popular films are about paring down makeup and allowing your mood, your spirit and your natural features to come through — believable, realistic and authentic beauty. And it's all there, just as Mother Nature designed you.
Go without makeup for a week or two until you find your features attractive. It is hard at first, because you may judge what you see in the mirror as washed out, drab and flat. After a day or so, that viewpoint will change. I find that this practice helps retain a realistic point of view as to what attractiveness really is. After you've let your skin breathe, try the fresh look inspired by Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty.
Forgo foundation, concealer and powder.
As you make your beauty regimen decisions this year, look to the movies for inspiration to go raw and real to discover your own authentic beauty.
