Jennifer Lopez’s Top Knot — Get Her Hair & Makeup
Makeup artist Mary Phillips, who frequently works with JLo, posted a picture of her latest glowing look on her Instagram on April 9. To get a similar look, concentrate on creating a flawless canvas for your makeup by perfecting your skin with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation.
Then go in with a highlighter stick like Burberry Sheer Concealer along the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, Cupid’s bow, chin and across the forehead.
Blend soft brown eyeshadows like colors in the L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Dual Effects Palette in Perpetual Nude, concentrating the darker shades along the outer corners of the upper lids. Lightly line the rims of the eyes with L’Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner in Brown, and blend before finishing with black mascara. For JLo’s glossy nude lip, NARS Lip Gloss in Belize has the same pink undertones as the color Jennifer wore on Idol.

Twist your hair into a knot, pinning as needed, and wrapping a small section of hair at the base to cover the elastic.
