Jennifer Lopez Make Up: How to Get Your Glow On
Author: Robin Adler
What may come to mind when you think of Jennifer Lopez? Is it actress, artist, dancer, or American Idol judge? Maybe, but one aspect she's famously identified for is having gorgeous skin. At one time, she released an album entitled, "Glow." Numerous people thought she was referring to her smooth, stunning skin. No matter if she's at a movie premier or awards show, J. Lo always has beautiful skin and attractive makeup which accentuates her greatest characteristic which are her eyes. It's quite the easiest job to duplicate the Jennifer Lopez make up look to add a tiny bit of style into your life.
J. Lo wields the smoky eye look nearly all of the time to highlight her attractive brown eyes. Of course, makeup artists sometimes use the air brush method on her, but you can still duplicate her look with traditional make up. Her colors of range are shimmery earth tones like bronze, brown, gold, and taupe. For awards shows, she experiments with appealing shades of silver. These are practical colors anyone can use in the day and adapt to going out at night. For added attention, be sure to use a white cream highlighter with glimmer on the eye brow bone. An eye pencil in white can be utilized to line the inside of the lower lash line to give you the "dollish" look J. Lo has perfected. Next, apply dark brown or black liner to the upper and lower lash line. You can use a pencil liner (run it softly back and forth over the lash line) or a damp eye liner brush dipped in dark brown or black eye shadow. Mineral pigments work very good for this and last all day with no chance of "raccoon eye syndrome." Use a brow liner or powder to fill in your brows. Don't disregard the lashes! For a special night out, you can use fake eye lashes, otherwise just apply black mascara to the top and bottom lashes to conclude off the eyes.
J Lo's lip color can only be described one way: neutral. oftentimes she utilizes a pink color, but it's light colored which brings more focus to the eyes. A good rule of thumb in makeup is if you are emphasizing the eyes with the smoky look, you should select to use a neutral lip color. J. Lo has this down to a awesome science. She permanently has gloss on the lips for extra shine, so whether you decide to use a nude beige, peach or pink lipstick, be sure to use gloss in a similar shade or use clear gloss. You can also decide upon to skip the lipstick totally and simply line the lips with a nude colored lip pencil, then use gloss to complete it off.
Aside from her eyes, J. Lo's skin is her sexiest aspect. Before applying any foundation or powder, be sure to start by manipulating a quality moisturizer into freshly cleansed skin. Having a moisturized face will help the makeup adhere better. Next, follow these steps to get the J Lo Glow:
1. Use concealer to problem areas, such as discoloration and blemishes. Blend in.
2. Using a brush, apply foundation in a color which closely aligns your skin. A brush gives you more control of the foundation when blending it into your skin for a smooth, seamless look.
3. Use a bronzer to define your cheekbones and upper forehead area. use with a large brush and remember to blend in so as not to have noticeable lines.
4. Apply a pink or beige cream (a good choice for dry skin) or powder blush (better for oily skin) to the apples of cheeks.
5. Use a white shimmer highlighting cream to enhance the glow. This can be the same product you applied to define the brow bone. Dot lightly onto upper cheek bones and down your nose.
It's up to you to decide the order in which you do the makeup. I personally like to do my eyes first, then deal with the face. This way, if some of the eye shadow falls onto the skin, it can easily be wiped up without messing up the foundation.
The best part about the Jennifer Lopez make up look is its shimmery earth tones which embellish any eye color. This look is versatile since you can tone it down for the day and jazz it up for those wild nights out. J. Lo was one of the first the rich and famous to rock the monochromatic look with dewey, Radiant skin. It is not only a glamorous look, but one that encourages radiant, smooth skin.
