The rest of the world may have been wearing green for St. Patrick’s Day, but on the March 17 episode of ‘American Idol,’ Jennifer Lopez rocked purple! In a colorful look from head-to-toe, JLo topped things off with a purple smokey eye. Learn how to get the look for yourself!
Jennifer Lopez, 46, brought a rainbow of color to American Idol on March 17. Not only did the judge wear a sparkly, multi-colored striped jumpsuit from Naeem Khan, but she chose a bold beauty look to match.
With her signature glossy nude lip intact, JLo and her makeup artist, Mary Phillips, decided to trade in her usual neutral smokey eye for a deep violet shade.
If you want to try a purple smokey eye, too, use a product like Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Plum. The stick applicator lets you draw the color right onto your lids and use a brush to blend the shadow out for a more subtle look or layer on the shimmering plum hue until your heart’s content.
If you want to go lighter with the look and try out a pastel eyeshadow in a soft purple shade, use the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Orchid for the prettiest pale purple effect for spring.
Maybe the over-the-top makeup from her Vegas show, “All I Have,” is rubbing off on JLo, or maybe she just wanted to switch things up a bit. Either way, we thought the purple smokey eye was a fun look.
