Celebrity Beauty Style: Jennifer Lopez Glows With Desire!

I was going to do a post of some beauty looks from the SAG awards but no one really stood out for me. I was happy when I came across the February cover of Harper's Bazaar featuring beauty diva Jennifer Lopez. I have to say that she looks just lovely and pregnancy definitely agrees with her. Along with preparing for motherhood, Jenny from the block is also gearing up for the launch of her sexy new fragrance Deseo (Spanish for "desire"). Well, her look on the February cover is definitely something to desire. Recreate this look with some key products:

Brows: Jennifer's brows are nicely define. Use a brow powder to naturally fill in your brows with M.A.C.'s Brow Shader which comes with a brow colour and highlighter.
Eyes: This violet-grey hue really makes brown eyes stand out. Blend a colour like M.A.C.'s Matte2 shadow in Poison Pen (mid-tone purple with grey) in the crease and smudge into the bottom lash line with pencil brush like M.A.C.'s #219.
Cheeks: This look has softly sculpted cheeks in natural tones. Try using M.A.C.'s Sculpt and Shape powder to highlight and shape the cheeks.
Lips: Keep this look modern with a nude lip. Sometimes extremely pale lips can wash the skin out and look chalky. Try a neutral lip colour that has a bit of pink and brown in it like M.A.C.'s N lipstick in 4N, a sheer mid-tone creamy brown.
Face: Give your skin a natural matte finish with M.A.C.'s Mineralize Skinfinish/Natural and give the skin a warm glow with a light dusting of M.A.C.'s N Collection Mineralize Skinfinish in Warmed, golden bronze with light yellow gold veining.

What was up with the SAGs? I felt very 'Meh' about pretty much everything-maybe it's a symptom of my feelings about the media in Hollyweird right now. I have to say I like this look for Jello especially the eyes...though I think I'm the only person in the world not to like this nude lip trend. Put a little colour...or just gloss...that's all I ask.

Hey makeup_junkie! Thanks for the tips on how to acheive this look. I love Jennifer Lopez's look here. I think everytime I do a smokey eye/nude lip look, I'm striving for a JLo-esque look. Only thing is, I look horrible with bronzer on.

Hey Special K!
Ya, the SAGs were so "meh" for me too. Nothing exciting and I too am tired of the nude lip trend but that's because I get bored easily haha

Hey Psycoexgirlfriend!
You're welcome! Are you sure you look horrible with bronzer on? Which ones have you tried? If you're more fair skinned Laura Mercier has some great bronzers that are really sheer and golden instead of orange.
