Music icon Jennifer Lopez turns 51 today and this singer/actress/businesswoman ( the list goes on)... has done it all. Starting her career as a backup dancer, JLo has gone on to immensely influence pop culture and how! She also happens to be a totally age-defying beauty, with some of her skincare secrets available here.
Having said that, it is her striking and unparalleled makeup game that has kept us fawning over her for so many years. So, on JLo’s birthday today, we are taking a trip down the memory lane and rounding up some of her most iconic makeup looks ever. Let us know which one’s your favourite!
- 01. An icon on and off-screen!
- 02. The queen of 90s music videos
- 03. The red carpet slay
- 04. ‘The’ Super Bowl glam
- 05. The gold obsession
01. An icon on and off-screen!
JLo is one of the only actresses who managed to completely transform into the real-life personality they were playing on the screen. Taking the avatar of the influential Tejano musician Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, the mauve coloured lips, neatly lined eyes and messy bangs became an instant classic on release.
02. The queen of 90s music videos
There is a reason why the late 90s and early 2000s beauty trends are making a major comeback in 2020 — they were just so good! JLo’s golden-bronze makeup look aired with glossy, foiled lips and subtle smokey eyes from the video for I’m Real (2001) became a whole mood. Similarly, her silver eyeshadow form Jenny From The Block (2002) and highlighter for the Gods look from the more recent On the Floor (2011) managed to start their own trends.
03. The red carpet slay
Jennifer Lopez’s fashion game still remains unmatched; she is just so fearless. The navel-grazing Versace gown she wore for the Grammy Awards in the year 2000 is one of the most iconic red carpet moments of all time. The diva was a sight to behold in her peacock blue number for Oscars 2019 that she paired with a sizzling smokey eye and her signature bronzed face and glossy nude lips.
04. ‘The’ Super Bowl glam
This year’s Super Bowl halftime show was talked about for two reasons — first, the insanely high wattage performance by JLo and Shakira and second, JLo doing hair flips before the show while warming up. Full brows, mega blush and contour, pink lips and sparkly eyes were nothing less than swoon-worthy!
05. The gold obsession
The reason why Jennifer Lopez always looks like a million bucks can very well be associated with her love for gold. And yes, we mean both — bling and makeup — that have become somewhat of a signature look of hers. Golden hoop earrings paired with dewy, shiny golden details and makeup is uniquely JLo and we love that!
