Scott Barnes' Makeup Tips For Looking Lovely Like Lopez

Happy Birthday, Jennifer Lopez!!!! The Latin beauty turns 40 today!!! And Jenny from the Block has come a long-ggggg way. From music to movies to a fashion line, a collection of perfumes, and motherhood, and a triathlon, and now this: Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony are proud part owners of the Miami Dolphins!!!!

J. Lo is looking slender and sexy these days, filming a new movie and of course, chasing after her twin toddlers.

Jennifer Lopez' makeup always looks refined and glamorous. And you can thank her artist Scott Barnes for the beautiful transformation he gives her, time and time again.

When you look at Jennifer, you notice wonderful, high cheekbones and a golden glow. That seems to be her trademark look. To get that J. Lo makeup, you need highlighter and bronzer.

Makeup artist Scott Barnes has these suggestions:
Bronzer: Make sure that you don’t use a bronzer like you would be using a loose powder. You shouldn’t be applying bronzer all over your face. You should actually use bronzer on parts of your face that the sun would kiss naturally and you should make sure that the centre of your face is lighter than the outer parts of your face.

Highlighter: This is one of Jennifer Lopez’s most loved beauty secrets. Highlighter is what gives her that J.Lo glow!

We found more details on the beauty of bronzer, in an article by Here, Scott Barnes explains the process:
So would you recommend cream-based bronzers over powder then?
Liquid bronzers, like my Body Bling, work well to this end, and I just repackaged my cult favorite in a squeeze tube that should be out by the end of the month.

What about application techniques? Is there one right way to apply product for the perfect sun-kissed glow?
In general, I try to abide by a less-is-more mentality: You can always layer more on but it’s harder to take it off. It’s really all in the approach, though. I always see women applying powders and bronzers starting next to their nose. But the trick is to work from the outside of the face inward, rather than the other way around. This creates a halo effect and leaves a diamond shape of light in the center so your face appears a little more open. This will hide double chins and give you a visible bone structure so you don’t wind up looking old. Also, use a bronzing brush to blend allover rather than applying product directly to problem areas like crow’s feet and laugh lines. And don’t forget to do your neck and d├ęcolletage.

Wonderful makeup tips. And by the way, if you're wondering how Jennifer Lopez maintains that healthy, youthful complexion, just 2 words.....La Mer.

These tips are great and all but it sure would be wonderful to have a pro make-up artist applying my makeup before a big event. The bronzer sounds a bit complicated and yet I would love an aryist to do my make-up. These celebritiies are so lucky to get made up by thebest.
