I’d thought i would write a post on how to recreate Jennifer Lopez’s look from the American Music Awards 2015 as i think it is the perfect summer evening makeup. This look was one of my favourites because the hair and makeup was simple which paired well with her dress.
The look that i have chosen from the various that night is ‘The Top Knot’ where she has her hair in a high bun and wore a baby blue dress which i think was one of the most popular looks of the night probably because her makeup was wearable and natural.
The Hair (The Top Knot)
- Apply a texturising spay into the lengths of hair and blow dry straight.
- Use a paddle brush to brush the hair back so that hair is smooth.
- Use a thin hair tie which is the same colour as your hair and twirl your hair until it make a bun. If you need to…. use a few hair coloured bobby pins to secure any fly-aways.
- Final step is to hair spray it in place so that it says put all night long!
The Perfect Base
Use cream foundation (such as Laura Mercier Silk Cream Foundation) which has full coverage. This is how Jennifer gets her smooth look to her skin and will look extra flawless in photographs.
Bronzed Goddess Skin
Apply a bronzer with a contour brush over the temples, hollows of your cheeks and chin, this will give you facial framework like J LO.
Apply bronze eye shadow all over the lids up through the crease, take that same shade underneath your eye along the lash line.
Apply 2-3 coats of mascara and if you wearing this look out , apply a strip of false eye lashes to create bigger eyes.
Use a pinky peach shimmering blush such as Charlotte Tilbury Ecstasy on the apples of your cheeks and swipe up to the temples.
J Lo Glow
Highlight your cheek bones with a champagne highlight shade such as Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze and Glow so that the high points of your cheeks glisten when you turn your cheek to the side.
With a nude lip liner fill in the lips , then apply a peachy pink lip gloss so that lips look full and glossy.
