Get the Look: Jennifer Lopez at the 2013 Golden Globes.

 

Jennifer Lopez looked sleek and sexy in her barely there Zuhair Murad white gown. Her hair and makeup were flawless and were both created with products by L'Oreal Paris.

Makeup Artist Mary Phillips at the Magnet Agency did her glowy makeup.

For Jennifer’s makeup, Mary was inspired by Jennifer’s natural glowy skin to create a classic understated look with nude lips and a smoky eye. Jennifer wore a daring nude lace dress by Zuhair Murad that accentuated her curves and complemented her olive skin tone.
 
STEP-BY-STEP:

STEP 1: Mary prepped Jennifer’s skin with L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur ($24.99) creating a virtually flawless complexion

STEP 2: Since Jennifer’s dress was white and nude, Mary warmed up Jennifer’s skin using L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup in Caramel Beige ($10.95)

STEP 3: To create the classic Jennifer Lopez glow, Mary used L’Oréal Paris Super-Blendable True Match Crayon Concealer in Fair/Light Warm ($8.95) to brighten up the under-eye area and illuminate the cheek bones

STEP 4: Mary used a small amount of L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Color Lift Blush in Nude Lift ($12.95)  on Jennifer’s cheeks to add a hint of color and sheen

STEP 5: As a focus for the look, Mary used several colors of the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quads ($7.95) including Cupa Joe as a base and Black Pump around the outer corners

STEP 6: Towards the lashline, Mary added L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Eternal Black ($7.95) to create depth and sculpt the eyes around the crease

STEP 7: To further define the eyes, Mary used the L’Oréal Paris Super Slim Liner by Infallible ($8.95) on the top lids

STEP 8: To finish off the seductive smoky eye, Mary used the L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara ($9.95) on both the top and bottom lashes

STEP 9: Mary kept the lips very warm and neutral with a nude lip using L’Oréal Paris Colour Caresse Shine Stain in Eternally Nude ($9.99)  
 
Her hair was done by Hairstylist Lorenzo Martin.

INSPIRATION: Going into the night, Lorenzo was inspired by old Hollywood look to create a look that would complement Jennifer’s captivating Zuhair Murad gown. Lorenzo turned to a deep side part to modernize the old Hollywood look of the romantic waves.
 
STEP-BY-STEP:

STEP 1: Lorenzo prepped Jennifer’s hair with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Triple Resist Shampoo and Conditioner ($4.99 each). Then while hair was wet, Lorenzo used the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Triple Resist Ultimate Strength Solution ($6.99) to reinforce the hair prior to styling

STEP 2: Lorenzo applied a quarter size amount of L’Oréal Paris EverCurl Sculpt & Hold Cream-Gel ($8.99) to condition the hair and prep it for being curled

STEP 3: Curled using a 1 inch curling iron and then gently sprayed L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Texture Series Beach Spray ($6.99) to each section helping to hold the curl and add texture

STEP 4: For each curl created, Lorenzo pinned the curl to the scalp using a bobby pin. When all curls were created, Lorenzo sprayed L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Strong Hold ($14.99) approximately six inches from the scalp. Curls set for 15 minutes, then released

STEP 5: Once curled are released, Lorenzo took a medium round brush and brushed out the curls to create volume

STEP 6: Creating a deep side part, Lorenzo parted the hair to the side and used bobby pins to hold hair in palce

STEP 7:  To finish the look, Lorenzo sprayed the L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Strong Hold Styling Spray ($6.99) to add shine and set the curls

Get the Look: Jennifer Lopez at the 2012 Oscars.

 

Jennifer Lopez glowed at the 2012 Oscars. 

Jennifer’s elegant up-do and glowing skin and makeup were inspired by the late 1960’s. Celebrity Hairstylist Lorenzo Martin kept her hairstyle simple and chic by creating a chignon bun placed high on the head. Jennifer’s makeup was also kept simple and chic – dewy skin with a dramatic winged cat eye – by Celebrity Makeup Artist Mary Phillips. A gorgeous gold and red-tipped nail was the final touch in Jennifer’s “Faye Dunaway”-inspired head-to-toe Oscars look.

Lorenzo Martin tended to her golden locks for the evening. He said, “The look I created for Jennifer was inspired by the 60's. I wanted a gorgeous hairstyle that defined the graceful refined sophistication of that time to complement Jennifer's beautiful dress.

Step by Step How-To:

  • First, Lorenzo sprayed L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Volume Root Lifting Spray at the roots of Jennifer’s clean, damp hair to add extra volume before blow-drying it with a round medium-sized boar bristle brush.
  • After Jennifer’s hair was completely dry, Lorenzo distributed a dime-sized amount of L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Strong Hold Defining Gel evenly throughout her hair.
  • Next, he pulled her hair into a high ponytail, securing it with a metal-free elastic rubber band. 
  • From there, Lorenzo split the ponytail into four different sections and teased each one. Once all four pieces were teased, he sprayed her hair with  L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Unscented Hairspray.
  • Next, Lorenzo took one of the four sections and looped the piece into the ponytail, securing it into place with bobby pins. He followed this step with the three other sections of hair – pinning each one in different directions (front, back and side to side) to create a complete bun. 
  • To ensure there were no loose hairs or flyways and to maintain a sleek look, he added a bit of L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Smooth & Shine Serum.
  • Lastly, to finish off this effortless yet elegant style, he used L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Unscented Hairspray lightly around all the hair.

Products Used:

  • L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Volume Root Lifting Spray ($6.99)
  • L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Strong Hold Defining Gel ($6.99
  • L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Smooth & Shine Serum ($6.99)
  • L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Unscented Hairspray ($14.99)

Mary Phillips did Jennifer's makeup.

  • FACE – First, Mary highlighted Jennifer’s natural glow by mixing L’Oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup in Sun Beige ($10.95) with LaMer The Reparative Body Lotion ($180) to create a dewy but even and  smooth canvas
  • CHEEKS – Mary dabbed L’Oreal Paris Magic Smooth Soufflé Blush in Cherubic on her cheeks for a subtle flush of color ($12.95)
  • EYESHADOW – Mary used two shadows to achieve Jennifer’s sultry eye: L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Eye Shadow in Eternal Black and Iced Latte ($7.95 each)
  • EYELINER – Mary created a winged cat eye with L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Brown ($8.95)
  • MASCARA – Mary completed the high drama effect of the eye with two coats of L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara in Carbon Black ($8.95)  
  • LIPS – Jennifer’s lip color was the final glamorous touch; L’Oreal Paris Infallible 8HR Le Gloss in Coral sands ($9.99)

For her nails, Celebrity Manicurist Tom Bachik created the look.

Tom said, “Jennifer Lopez's Oscar's look was all about 60’s glamour with a modern interpretation ... so it was important her nail look matched this overall feel and aesthetic. Jennifer loved the delicate shade of ‘Because You're Worth It’ - we were excited to try something a bit more modern for the red carpet and create a nail look that could transition throughout the night, as she has a couple of wardrobe changes. We drew inspiration for Jennifer's nail look from not only her red carpet gown, but also her makeup."

Step by Step How-To:

  • First, Tom shaped her nails into a classic almond shape, but gave them a slight unexpected point at the tip for a modern take.
  • He then painted a sheer coat of L'Oreal Paris' Colour Riche Nail Polish in "Because You're Worth It" (a gorgeous warm, champagne gold shade - #580) before gilding the tips of her nails (in a V shape) in Colour Riche Nail Polish in Haute Couture Red (#470) - a vampy, burgundy wine hue.

Products Used:

  • L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish in "Because You're Worth It" – #580 in the "Iconic Muse" collection ($5.99)
  • L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish in "Haute Couture Red" – #470 in the "Femme Fatale collection ($5.99)
