I’ve watched American Idol since the beginning and lately it’s become a little redundant for me to pay attention to who’s on there and pick a favourite to win. But what I do always look out for, especially since last year, has been what makeup look Jennifer Lopez will strike out with next!
In the 11th season premiere, we saw J.Lo go through the audition process with GORGEOUS pinks and lilacs on her eyes and lips! I thought that it was perfect timing to see this kind of look because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and Ms. Lopez’ look is a perfect option for anyone looking for something pretty and feminine to wear for the romantic holiday!
I used my Coastal Scents 88 Original palette and added a bit of MAC’s Lovely Lily pigment and Gosh’s Rose Gold pigment for some sparkle. I took the pink/lilac up to the brow bone and applied some of L’Oreal’s Color Infallible Eyeshadow in Hourglass Beige to make the brow bones and inner tear duct pop and for an added glow. I had to add lashes to the look and used a pair by Hana’s World. Unfortunately they didn’t add any length, just volume to my lashes. So, if I was to recreate this look again I would add longer, wispy lashes! I kept the look consistent by adding pretty pinks to the cheeks and mixed two lipsticks to get the right shade of light purple-pink that Jennifer was sporting while topping it off with NARS’ Easy Lover lip gloss.
If you want to go for some extra glam, I would recommend adding glitter to the lids like J.Lo. Overall, I really enjoyed wearing this look and adding it to my options to wear for Valentine’s Day. I’m so jealous of the glow that seems to come so naturally to Jennifer Lopez but I like trying different products out to try and recreate it. I would LOVE to know what makeup is used on her so if anyone knows, please share! 😉 I’m always inspired by the gorgeous makeup looks she wears on the show, so you’ll probably find a few more looks inspired by her posted on here while the new season of AI is on tv!
