Share on Twitter1 Share on Facebook1 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11
Today’s question is how do I get J-Lo’s dark and smoky eye look. You want to make sure that you are using a nice deep dark bronze, a deep plum and really build it up. J-Lo likes to play with color. So, she’s definitely not one for a natural eye. You want to make sure that the colors aren’t black or too harsh. As you can tell with her bronze look, J-Lo really really loves to play around with different versions of brown, mahogany, bronze and a nude lip. In the video above we’ve already started on the look so far. Our model has as a nice, kind of graduated plum with a little bit of bronze in the corners of her eyes. This has already started the look as a bronze kind of version of that smoky eye. She has a nice soft peach on the cheeks to give her that J-Lo glow and the nude lip that J-Lo is really famous for. Now I’ll show you how to take it that extra step and make it that dark and smoky look that she rocks on the red carpet.
  • first, we’re going to add a little bit of extra pop of color. Like I said, J-Lo really likes to emphasize the eyes and keep the rest of the face bronzy and nude.
  • So I’m going to add a really beautiful plum purple all around the eye to kind of brighten it up. This is just enhancing the already smoky look and adding that extra bright pop of color. As you can see, that’s already really giving it a sexy look.
  • To finish the look we’re going to add a beautiful shimmering mauve. This will really pump up the eye and make them look smoky and sexy.

There you go, that’s an easy tip and trick on how to get J-Lo’s dark and smoky eye look!

Get the Look Jlo
by Sian Bitner Kearney

Even way back in the days of dancing on In Living Color (that’s right, Jlo was a Fly Girl), there was just something about Jennifer Lopez. Her skin literally glows as if she’s hired someone to follower her with perfect lighting, and no matter what hair and makeup she rocks, the look is always sexy, sophisticated, and impeccable. One of Jlo’s most recent knockout looks was the one she sported at the 2013 Golden Globes. It’s fresh, sexy, and appropriate for all skin tones. Here’s what you’ll need to recreate the look for yourself.


For skin that’s as flawless as Jlo’s, it’s all about a great foundation. Look for one that covers flaws and redness without looking cakey. You’ll want and airbrushed effect here. One of our favorites for this look is Napoleon Perdis Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation. Set the look with a loose, neutral powder like Bare Minerals’ Mineral Veil.


Jlo’s makeup looks are all about highs and lows, so never forget about bronzer and highlighter. For this look, try a neutral bronzer like NARS Bronzing Powder in the shade, “Laguna”. Apply with a contouring brush just under the cheekbones, the forehead, bridge of the nose, and a touch on the chin. You can also use the bronzer the cast shadows on double chins or to accentuate collar bones. Next, grab a highlighter like Benefit’s High Beam and apply to cheekbones, inside corners of the eyes, brow bones, and cupids bow.


The cheeks in this look do not require too much pop, so stick with a light pink blush like Bobbi Brown’s in the shade, “Slopes”.


The eyes are the focal point of the look and the look is smoky and sultry. Start with a light, shimmering gray tone. Use this color from the top lash line to just above the crease and under the bottom lash line. Next use a medium/dark gray shade, and apply to the crease of the eyelids extending just past the corners. DUWOP’s Eyes Gray Eyes Palette is an excellent choice since it contain several shades of gray; one for every skin tone. Next use dark brown eyeliner like Revlon’s ColorStay in, “Black/Brown”, and line the top lashline from corner to corner and lightly line the bottom waterline. Finally, apply several coats of black, thickening mascara to the upper lashes. We love Benefit’s, They’re Real Mascara for true bombshell lashes.


Finish this look with a beautiful, caramel lipgloss like Sephora’s Glossy Gloss in the shade, “Maple Syrup”, and you’re ready to rock the town Jlo style!
