I swear every time I see Jennifer Lopez at an award show, I’m always flabbergasted by her timeless beauty. I mean I shouldn’t be surprised every time but it’s like she never ages! While her music performance at this years American Music Awards had everyone buzzing, her red carpet look was truly stunning. The silver Balmain outfit was all sparkly gorgeousness but her entire beauty look really caught my attention. The ’60s modern glam eye look and short tousled hair perfectly complemented each other. For that, we have to thank celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton and makeup artist Mary Phillips.
The more I looked at it, the more it seemed doable at home. So with my fingers crossed, I headed over to their respective Instagram accounts to look for clues on how they achieved this beautiful look. Lucky for us common folks, her hairstylist and MUA detailed out the products they used to create this look from head to toe. They probably anticipated peoples’ reactions and the need to recreate it themselves because they knew they had created a winning look. So get ready, we’re here to break it down so you can recreate this fabulous glam this season for your next festive or holiday occasion like the star you are.
Starting off with the hair, Chris Appleton transformed JLo’s hair into a chic above the shoulder lob. He gave her a sexy wearable texture by purposely by making her hair look wet and semi-dry. Here’s how Chris styled the new shoulder-skimming cut in just a few steps:
So now that you’re done with the hair, it’s time to master the makeup look. Mary Phillips, Lopez’s MUA listed all the products she used on her Instagram post as well. She mentioned the majority of products shes used are from Pat Mcgrath. To build the retro ’60s glam eyes, she used a mixture of the Mothership III Subversive Palette and Mothership V Bronze Seduction Palette. Don’t worry if you don’t have these luxury palettes on hand, the shades used can easily be replicated by what you already have in your kit.
And that’s it! You’re done. I know it may seem like a lot of steps but surely the end result is totally worth it! Just put on your favourite silver sequin dress and you’re ready to party the night away.
