For the premier of her latest movie, A Second Act, Jennifer Lopez held nothing back—except onlookers who had to make way for the back of her enormous Giambattista Valli dress. The bright pink number turned heads for good reason, but what we’re really loving is the way her pretty in pink makeup complements her gown so beautifully. It’s the ultimate ode to one of our favorite ladylike hues, and, in true Jlo style, it looks perfectly natural. Here’s how to make it your own.
Start With a Flawless Canvas
Her longtime makeup artist, Scott Barnes, began this beautiful look with fresh skin. Begin with a brightening foundation that allows your natural beauty to shine, like Glo Skin Beauty Luminous Liquid Foundation . Available in seven shades, this emulsion is designed to bring out the best of your complexion and produce a lit-from-within glow
Next Step, Eyes
Only Jlo could pull off what appears to be a pink smokey eye with such incredible ease. Of course, with Barnes wielding a makeup brush, anything is possible. For this look, grab a Tigi Cosmetics HD Quad Eye Shadow in Love Affair . Dust the lightest shade all over your brow bone and the inside corners of your eyes. Then dip a brush into the pink shade and apply it from the inner corners all the way across your lids and up to the creases. Use a flat brush to apply the same hue to your lower lash lines. Then add the deep brown shade to the outer corners, packing it into the outer creases.
Opt for a dark brown or charcoal liner to provide some contrast to the pink, like one from the Glo Minerals Precise Micro Eyeliner collection. Apply it to the outer corners of the eyes, across the upper lash lines, and along the outer edges of the lower lash lines. Smudge it out with a cotton swab if the lines are too fine. Finish with multiple coats of Jane Iredale PureLash Lengthening Mascara in Brown Black.
Play Up Your Cheekbones
The gorgeous flush displayed here is what really makes the look so charming and ladylike. It’s that delicate flush that looks healthy, bright, and festive all at once—and the fact that it matches the dress is just icing. The PÜR Cosmetics 4-in-1 Blush Book makes it simple to narrow down your ideal shade of pink. Use a thick blush brush, smile into the mirror, and apply color directly to the apples of your cheeks. This look is about soft, delicate placement instead of harsh, heavily contoured lines!
Add a Kiss of Color
Nothing but a perfectly pink lip would be appropriate for this eye-catching look. Start with Youngblood Lip Liner Pencil in Rose. Fill in the entire lip so that they’re primed for the finishing layers. The Glo Minerals Cream Glaze Crayon acts like a lipstick thanks to nourishing shea butter and mango oil, both of which hydrate your lips. There are a handful of pink shades in the group, but we love Dahlia for this look. Finish with generous coats of Jane Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss in Pink Smoothie.
