As this is a makeup blog, I feel that Its time for me to start doing some makeup looks and tutorials.
For my first celebrity inspired tutorial I am going to try and recreate the look of the stunning Jennifer Lopez from a recent Harpers Bazaar cover...
I think Jennifer is beautiful, I love her style and look. I chose this image as its a little different to Jennifer's usual gold, bronze smokey eye look.
I also found the matt but somehow luminous skin so amazing!!!!
This is my attempt, this is a scary thing for me, my first photos of me!!! Hehe.
Ah yes and before any one wonders, I had a bandeux dress on, lol, so I do have clothes on!!! hehe.
I Wanted to create a smooth, semi matte base so i used Revlon's Photo Ready Foundation with a little NARS Orgasm highlighter mixed through. I didn't want to use a traditional powder to set my foundation, so I decided to use the Bourjois Delice de Soleil as a bronzer as this kept the semi matte look without loosing the dewy look.
I contoured with the Bourjois bronzing powder in the hollows of my cheeks and up onto my temples. I concealed any darkness under my eyes with the Garnier Roll On and covered any blemishes with Mememe's Correct and Perfect. I used Mac Soft and Gentle MSF along the tops of my cheekbones, Accessorize Box Blush on my cheeks stopping just before my apples and then finally a dusted Macs Gold Deposit MSF over the blush and into the hollow to add that ' J Lo Glow'
I used the matt brown from Sleek Storm Palette to fill and shape my brows.
I then started with Urban Decay Primer Potion over my lid. I then used an eyeshadow from YSL, Ombre Solo in no7. to try and recreate the soft almost pale peppermint green shadow, keeping it soft and with little or no glitter.
I lined my top and bottom lash line and also both water lines. I extended the lines out slightly but did not join them as Jennifer's aren't. I did add a little of Macs Black Tied into the outer v and socket, just to add some definition. I then blended Macs Shroom up to the brow bone for my highlight.
Next LOTS AND LOTS of Mascara, I used Cover Girl Lash Blast ( I buy this on import).
And finally for the lips I used Mac Cremestick Liner in Summerfruit to line my lips and I also filled them in, I followed this with NYX Round Lipstick in Pumpkin Pie.
I think this is a pretty good Dupe of the Lip Jennifer has in the picture.
And that's that.....
