Scarlett Johansson Gives Holiday Makeup Tips in Vogue Feature
She’s been a busy lady over the past year given the birth of her daughter Rose and relocation to Paris, France, and Scarlett Johansson is looking forward to reconnecting with friends and family over the holiday season.
The “We Bought a Zoo” actress shared some helpful hints on getting all gussied up for yule tide gatherings in her new feature for Vogue and she certainly knows what she’s talking about.
Ms. Johansson always starts with a bold lip- “Last year, I rediscovered darker lipsticks as part of my ‘return to the nineties,’ and I like those colors a lot—the dark browns especially. You can only rock those shades sometimes, and if you do, you have to pick a matte one. But I like a nice red, too, like the new Dolce & Gabbana lipstick in Real Red. It’s not too orange or too blue. The Dolce reds are all really good. I also like Devil.”
Scarlett also encourages the use of glitter- “I think it’s nice to wear something sparkly—just avoid getting the sparkles on your forehead and your upper lip. So maybe just don’t get too drunk! If you’re using something glittery, use it for an effect—so put it in the corner of your eye, or on your brow bone, or try a glitter eyeliner over your regular eyeliner. But remember to use sparkle sparingly, like, if you’re using a highlighter like Dolce & Gabbana’s new The Illuminator Collector’s Edition, don’t wear a glittery lip gloss and a glittery eyeshadow, too.”
As for her eyes, Johansson relies on individual lashes. “I wear a lot of lashes for work—I’m actually wearing them right now—and while I wish I was better at applying them, doing the strip for me is a disaster. The individuals, I think, are easier. I usually just use about 4 or 5 lashes from the middle to the end of the lash line and I always apply them with a tweezer. Just make sure you count how many you use on each lid so you don’t end up with one crazy eye!”
And don’t be afraid to get a little crazy in the fingernail department- “The nail art trend is very exciting to me because I’ve always loved nail polish. It’s like candy! I grew up buying tons of nail polish—my best friend Julia and I used to collect it. We still have tons and tons of colors but now we’re both obsessed with nail stamps. They’re really hard to use, but they’re just delightful! I love the animal-print ones, but we’ll do, like, whole scenes using a desert theme, or safari.”
Finally, for the especially daring, a cat eye effect can be compelling- “There’s nothing more fabulous than a liquid cat eye. You can wear it without other makeup, or with your lipstick or smoky eye, and you can dress it up or dress it down. It’s like the perfect accessory. Liquid pens are so hard for me to use, though, so I prefer the angled brush and cream liner technique because I have better control that way. I usually draw the angle of the flick up towards the brow, and I experiment with colors like navy—or bronze is a fabulous one. I love metallics during the holidays.”

DO KEEP YOUR LIFE PLANS OPEN
“I never thought I’d be an actress. It wasn’t even on my mind when I was 22, sitting at graduation. Then something hit me: You’ve always kind of wanted to be an actress—now is the time to try. If it doesn’t work out, you can go back to school and catch up on evolutionary science. My brother’s best friend, [comic] Jon Lovitz, said to go to The Groundlings School for improv. Friends wasn’t until, like, eight years later. You never know what the next opportunity will be, so you have to be open, especially starting out.”
DON’T LET A LITTLE REJECTION SCARE YOU OFF
“With any rejection, you can’t help but consider how correct people were for rejecting you. What helps? Having someone you respect who thinks you’re good, so the story is: Well, they think I’m good, so I’ll keep going. [My improv classmate] Conan O’Brien completely helped me through.”
DO PLEDGE YOUR COMMITMENT, FOREMOST
“When [Michel and I] decided to get married, we understood: We’re not promising to love each other forever, because you can’t do that, but we are promising to work on whatever problems come up. We’re committed to our marriage working. It turns out, after you have a history, there’s such a bond, and love takes another shape. But oh, I don’t want to jinx it—I’m superstitious!”
DON’T LOSE YOUR INDEPENDENCE
“[Michel and I] respect each other’s independence, and I don’t mean that as a euphemism. I don’t mean relationship wise outside the marriage. Clear? But I don’t like to travel. So if he wants to go on a golf trip, he goes. I think people get in trouble [when they assume they’re] supposed to be one unit, in sync about everything. [Marriage] is like being on a team. Each teammate is different, but you have the same goal.”
DO MAKE YOUR FRIENDS A PRIORITY
“[Courteney, Jennifer,] and I—we’ve known each other for over 20 years. We had lunch together every day for 10 years, and it just mostly feels like, Well, that wasn’t enough time at all; I want more, please. When we get together for a dinner now, it feels like, Ahhh. There is a bond that is there forever.”
DON’T YOU DARE JUDGE
“As you get older, there are fewer Dos & Don’ts. You’re less judgmental of yourself and others. My advice: Be a good listener; human beings are very complicated.”

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” Sets 2014 Record
Last night (November 20) Lionsgate gave North American fans a special treat with a Thursday opening of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.”
And it looks like things went well for the flick, as its $17 million box office take is the highest for a Thursday kickoff for 2014.
However, “Mockingjay” still came up short of last year’s “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” which raked in an impressive $25.3 million in its first night.
This weekend, the latest “Hunger Games” installment is slated to hit 4,151 screens and is expected to bring in between $130 million and $150 million by the time Monday rolls around.
On the international front, Lionsgate has reported that “Mockingjay” is up 5% overall from the numbers generated by “Catching Fire.”
