Jennifer Lopez recently showed her makeup routine in a Vogue Beauty Secrets Video and of course, we had to know how she achieves her signature glowy dewy look. Being an actress and in the music industry for a long time, the star definitely has picked up some tips from celebrity makeup artists and knows what looks good on her face. We tested out everything J Lo used in her video and are here to tell you what’s worth the money.
La Mer The Lip Balm
After J Lo applies her JLo Beauty skincare products she applies some La Mer lip balm to the lips. It has a mint scent that feels velvety soft on the lips. A little goes a long way with this product. Your lips will feel hydrated and nourished just the way you like it.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
We know that her longtime makeup artist Scott Barnes likes to start with concealer and contour first and that’s exactly what Lopez does. This concealer is not only loved by many but is a celebrity favourite. It’s been spotted in numerous Vogue Beauty Secrets videos including Kendall Jenner’s, Madison Beer’s, Lori Harvey’s and more. It’s a lightweight concealer with buildable coverage. It doesn’t look cakey underneath the eyes and is great for anyone that has dry skin.

Bobbi Brown Contour Palette
The contour palette she uses in the video is discontinued. It looks like it’s the Bobbi Brown BBU Face Palette. She mixes a few shades in the palette and applies them above her cheekbones because she says it helps lift the face more. She brings the product underneath her chin calling it the “lightbulb,” area. “We darken that so it doesn’t light up,” the star says. She takes a smaller brush and uses a lighter colour on her nose and around her mouth. The actress says that if you blend well around your mouth the shadow makes the lips a little bit poutier.
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat All-Over Brightening Concealer Pen
After she applies the NARS concealer and her contour J Lo uses the YSL Touche Éclat Brightening concealer pen to highlight underneath her eyes and down the sides of her nose. It’s a fantastic product for adding more radiance in specific areas of the face. It has light coverage and is meant to give the skin a natural glow.

Chanel Vitalumière Radiant Moisture-Rich Fluid Foundation
The foundation was also spotted in Hailey Bieber’s and Kendall Jenner’s Vogue Beauty Secrets videos. J Lo mixes three shades together and blends the foundation on top of her cream contour. The foundation has very light coverage but makes you look like a glowing goddess. It feels lightweight on the skin and evens out the skin beautifully.

Tom Ford Eye Color Quad Eyeshadow Palette
Just to add some definition to the eye the musician takes the brown shade from her Tom Ford palette and applies it along the lash line and underneath her lower lash line. She then takes a lighter brown shade to add some colour to the crease and uses the brown shade to darken the outer corners. These shadows have a buttery formula and a silky soft texture.

Beautyblender Bounce Liquid Whip Cream Blush
The actress then uses the beautyblender liquid blush in the shade Playful Peach. She applies the product with her foundation brush. These liquid blushes give the cheeks a nice wash of colour. It has a buildable creamy formula that allows you to intensify the colour as you, please.

Make Up For Ever Artist Color Eye, Lip & Brow Pencil
She uses the Make Up For Ever Artist Color pencil that Hailey Bieber also has used in her tutorial to line her lips. She slightly overlines her lips in what looks like the shade Wherever Walnut. These Make Up For Ever pencils are super creamy and long-lasting. What’s even better is that they can be used on the eyes and face as well.

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer
If you’re a gloss girl then chances are you’ve heard about the iconic Fenty Beauty Gloss Bombs. In the video, it looks like J Lo puts on the shade Fenty Glow and a lighter pink one which we believe is the shade FU$$y. Rihanna wanted to make a gloss and would want to apply it over and over again and she did just that. They have a non-sticky formula that gives you super shiny-looking lips.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Mechanical Brow Pencil
You can’t go wrong with it the ABH Brow Wiz. It’s a cult classic for a reason. It has a super fine tip that makes it easy to create hair-like strokes.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder
