Lena Dunham’s Makeup — Amazing Eye Makeup In ‘Marie Claire UK’

Lena showed off a totally edgy makeup look on her Marie Claire UK cover. The issue commemorates the mag’s 25th birthday, so it’s super special that she is the cover star!

The heavy eyeliner is the standout star of Lena’s makeup look, but we can’t gloss over her perfect complexion! Lena’s pale flush is absolutely stunning.

Lena Dunham’s Killer Body Confidence

Lena is definitely one gorgeous lady — and she knows it! She’s not afraid to flaunt her body on Girls or take major fashion risks. She told Marie Claire UK that her amazing body image comes from her parents:

My parents both have really healthy attitudes about their own bodies but also about the range of things that can be beautiful. But they also just always made me feel pretty and cool and smart, even in the moments when I have known – and still know – that my body wasn’t fitting into a traditional Hollywood idea of the female body.

The actress also told the mag that she has had a positive self-image and relationship with beauty since she was a child:

This could very easily be taken out of context, and I think it’s funny now, but I remember looking in the mirror as a kid and it would be like for an hour at a time, and I’d be like: ‘I’m just so beautiful. Everybody is so lucky that they get to look at me.’ And of course that changes as you get older, but I may have held on to that little-kid feeling that was me alone in my bathroom.

It is a funny anecdote, but teaches us a lot about keeping that childlike appreciation of beauty! Right on, Lena!
