Jennifer Lopez-inspired makeup look

In celebration of Jenny from the block's 43rd birthday (which was three days ago), I'm dedicating this post to a look inspired by her. J.Lo always looks so amazing from head to toe, she is actually one of the main reasons why I look forward to watching American Idol! Her hair, makeup, and clothes on the show always look sooo perfect.

One of my favorite J.Lo looks of all time is her sexy, smoldering bronze goddess look. Her tanned glowing skin is just the perfect backdrop for a great smokey eye, strategically plazed bronzer, and pale lips.

Here's my interpretation of the look:

How To:

1. Face Prep (helps makeup last longer)
Celeteque gel moisturizer
L'oreal Base Magique Smoothing Primer

2. Face Products:
Applied Maybelline Aqua Gel Foundation in Sand all over face with foundation brush
Concealed small spots/minor discolorations with Coastal Scents camouflage pallette
Set with L'oreal True Match Super Blendable Powder

3. Eyes:
Prime lids with Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
Used Coastal Scents 88 Warm Palette, applied pale gold shadow over entire eye
Used ELF's cream eyeshadow in Olive; used the bronze shade all over lids
From the 88 Warm palette again, used a yellow gold shade over the lids
Matte brown shadow for the outer V and crease of the eye
Lined upper lashes with ELF liquid liner in black
Lined lower lash line with Nichido Eye Pencil in Gold
Applied natural-looking but thick false eyelashes

4. Cheeks
Used a shimmery peach blush from the Coastal Scents 32 Palette

5. Lips
Ever Bilena Matte lipstick in Skin
then topped with a peachy gold lip color from Coastal Scents 32 lip palette

6. Hair
And of course, we can't forget one of the crucial parts of Jennifer's look- sexy, wavy hair! Apply mousse onto hair, place curlers, set with stronghold hairspray. Uncoil curlers after about 25-30 minutes (it's best to set the hair before doing the face so you'll finish everything at the same time) and just finger comb so you won't ruin the curls. 

Did you like the look? What are your other favorite J. Lo looks? :)
