Jennifer Lopez Makeup


Before there was the Kim Kardashian contour, there was the J Lo glow.


Before Kim K broke the internet with her greasy butt, there was Jenny from the block booty.


Before Kim married thrice, J Lo had already done just that 3 times.


I like to think, Jennifer Lopez did it all first. I vividly remember On the 6 coming out when I was in high school and loving ‘Waiting For Tonight’. Hearing it now, still takes me back. And here we are, 16 years later, and 45 year old Ms. Lopez hasn’t aged a bit.


I just watched her HBO documentary, Dance Again, and I fell in love with one of her concert makeup looks-copper lids and silver glitter liner. I loved the unexpected mixed metallics together, paired with her signature glow and glossy nude lip.


Plus, it’s winter in the Midwest so if I can create J Lo’s signature glow, Imma do dis. Scott Barnes pioneered that very glow with Jennifer Lopez as his ultimate muse, creating Body Bling as a result of it!


Here’s my Jennifer Lopez inspired look tutorial and I hope you like it!

    I’m moldy obsessed with JLo – maybe it’s because we have the same first name and both have kids?!! Is that similar enough – hahaha!!
