Make-Up Tips: How to glow like J-Lo
Jennifer Lopez’s make-up artist has revealed how to recreate the star’s signature glow.
Jennifer is famed for her gorgeous complexion, which always looks flawless on the red carpet. The singer’s make-up artist, Scott Barnes, says the look is easy to copy at home with the right technique.
Scott says contouring is the best way to achieve the sexy look.
“Firstly, it's important to find your correct foundation colour that perfectly matches your skin tone When contouring with bronzer, it's important to work from the outside in to create a halo effect, that beautiful ‘lit from within’ glow. The last thing you want to do is add dark bronzer under your eyes (or up to the side of your nose) where your skin is already darker, and definitely avoid applying bronzer to the creases around your mouth and eyes, as that will make you look older,” he explained in an interview with Beauty High.
“I love Guerlain's bronzing powders – the key is to find a shade that's one shade darker than your skin.”
Scott – who also counts Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani amongst his star clients – has revealed his top beauty tips. The make-up pro says a little always goes a long way when it comes to beauty products.
“An eyelash curler is the most important thing, it makes your eyes look open. I also always use Naphcon A eye drops (available at your local drugstore), as they make your eyes look bright and white and rested,” he advised.
“With a little mascara, eyelash curler and eye drops, you'll be gorgeous.”
