Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Jennifer Lopez On The Cover of Allure January 2010

Diva Jennifer Lopez returns to the cover of Allure in the latest January 2010 issue.

“I wanted to do a tawny, bronzy look; anyone could create it at home,” said makeup artist Scott Barnes. First, Barnes applied pinky-peach blush to Lopez’s cheeks, then gold highlighter on her nose, cheeks, and brow bones. He then brushed a burgundy shadow on her eyelids, rimmed them with black liner, and added mascara. He kept her lips looking “natural and flesh-colored” with a gray-beige lip gloss.

To give Lopez’s hair volume and to eliminate frizz, hairstylist Oribe sprayed on Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray from his own line, then blew her hair dry with a round brush. He set her hair in hot rollers for more body and spritzed it with a finishing spray to hold the wave.

  1. She is gorgeous as always.

    But it’s been so nice to have a break from JLo. I was really starting to get tired of seeing her everywhere–serious overexposure!

    These beautiful starlets never seem to get older anymore. Everyone is pumped with fillers that make them look really youthful.

    Wo to those of us normal folks who don’t have the cosmetic budgets they do and so have to settle for looking like regular, aging women!
