Video: Jennifer Lopez Live It Up Makeup Tutorial


I recently uploaded a new tutorial inspired by the beautiful Jenny Lopez and her new video Live It Up ft Pitbull. As usual it is very energetic and of course she was only just a few shades lighter than the sun meaning I had to get myself a tan to make this look even the smallest bit similar.

I used the Laurens Way self tanning mousse that I’ve used for years but this time I ditched the Medium for the Darker than Dark and it was DARK. If you tan often you will adore this, it really does last too.

View the tutorial below and watch until the end to see the completed look.

Smoky eyes and tan skin were the key elements to this look, the eyes were smouldering but not overly done. I achieved this look with a mixture of textures and lots of blending.

The look can be seen in full at the end of the video,the cool lighting doesn’t show the colours well on this picture. Also you don’t need a tan to wear this makeup. As it’s a look grey/browns it will suit all skin and eye colours.

Let me know if you re-create this look I’d love to see!
