At first, she likes it
It took eight hours for makeup artists to apply the blue makeup when Lawrence played Mystique in X-Men: First Class. At that time, she “didn’t care about fumes and toxins”.
From eight hours to three.
“Now I’m almost 25 and I’m like, ‘I can’t even pronounce this and that’s going in my nose? I’m breathing that?’” she said. So for the movie’s sequel, Lawrence wore a bodysuit and only had to be painted from the neck up, so it took just three hours.
