Jennifer Lawrence Makeup in X-Men: First Class

Potentially NSFW: See Jennifer Lawrence's Labor-Intensive X-Men Transformation

It's been 10 years since Rebecca Romijn played the blue-skinned Mystique on X-Men, and now Jennifer Lawrence, who stars in the most recent film in the series, X-Men: First Class, is the lady covered in the royal-hued paint. But getting the scaly, marbled getup just the right hue and texture is no easy feat. In fact, in a behind-the-scenes video featured on the flick's soon-to-be-released Blu-ray and DVD, it's revealed that each time Jennifer's body paint and prosthetics were applied, it took a team of six makeup artists about seven hours to complete.

Of the experience with her makeup team, Jennifer said, "It's like a sleepover, except I'm naked and being painted." Watch as Jennifer is airbrushed, splattered, and latexed; there's no CG here, folks. But beware: some parts include brief, albeit rather modest, nudity and may be NSFW.
