At 52, Jennifer Lopez has never looked better. Actress, singer, and all-around legend, JLo has blessed us with, possibly the best songs of all time whilst creating iconic romantic comedies such as Monster-in-law and The Wedding Planner. Add to the fact that she looks insanely gorgeous (the body, the face, the hair!), and JLo is a force to be reckoned with.
It might be an understatement to say that Jennifer Lopez’s recent red-carpet looks have been giving in all categories, with her latest serve seen at a movie premiere. On Saturday, Jennifer accompanied boyfriend Ben Affleck to the premiere of his new film The Last Duel, and the couple looked absolutely stunning together. Lopez’s hair looked luscious, and her makeup was positively gorgeous. The glowy sun-kissed angel wore her hair in a sleek half-up, half-down style, paired with her signature nude lip and soft smudgy smoky eye. This gorgeous look is the one to save for special occasions. Whether you’re prepping for date night or an important social event – add this glam beauty look to your inspiration board to steal the damn show. Want to try the look on yourself? Here’s a step-by-step.
While skincare is important to achieve a JLo glow, choosing the right makeup products is also vital. Prep your skin with a moisturiser all over the face and a mattifying primer, applied sparingly on the T-zone. Next buff an illuminating foundation all over the face and neck with a wet sponge. Swipe and blend a creamy concealer under your eyes and on areas that need more coverage. Seal the deal with a light dusting of setting powder on areas that tend to get oily.
For strong brows, draw short strokes to mimic your natural hairs with an eyebrow product. To fill them in more, use a brow powder with an angled brush to fill in any gaps. Follow it up with a brow gel to set them in place.
Primer your lids with an eyeshadow base. Then, load a medium brown shade on a blending brush and contour your eye socket with it. Don’t forget to swipe a hint on the lower lash line too. Next, apply a shimmery gold shade on your lids with a flat shader brush. To bring more attention to your peeper, apply some gold eyeshadow on the inner corner of your eyes. Lastly, run a brown kohl eyeliner along the upper and lower waterline.
Curl your lashes and coat them with a volumizing mascara. If you’re exacting, then make your lashes look extra fluttery by sticking on a pair of big, bold lashes. You can use a black liner along your lash line to cover the seams of falsies and define it.
To mimic Lopez‘s luminous, sculpted skin, you need a few highlighting and contouring products. Use a matte, warm brown shade to bronze your temples, forehead, cheekbones, and jawline. Then, grab a cool-brown shade and apply it along the hollow below your cheekbones. Dab the pink shade on the apple of your cheeks with a fan brush. Complete the look by applying a shimmering highlighter on the high points of your cheekbones.
For the lips, take a brown-nude lip-liner and line your lips. Overline slightly to make them look fuller. Then, apply a pigmented lip gloss that’s a shade lighter than your lip liner. Finally, seal the makeup by spritzing on a makeup setting spray.
We bet all eyes will be on YOU!
