Jennifer Lopez's Glam Cover Look: All the Details!

Jennifer Lopez World's Most Beautiful Cover

Jennifer Lopez may love being makeup-free at home with her twins, but for her flawless appearance as PEOPLE’s 2011 World’s Most Beautiful cover girl, she had a little help from her glam squad. Makeup artist Mary Phillips began with moisturizer, then applied foundation with a blush brush “all over her face and neck, including on her eyelids.” She followed that with peach cream blush, “beginning on the apple using less product as you go back.” She set the look with a yellow-based powder. Phillips lined Lopez’s eyes in brown, “rimming the whole eye, all the way around.” After applying creamy shadow with a hint of shimmer all over the lid with a touch of espresso color in the crease, she curled Lopez’s lashes and used mascara on both the top and bottom lashes. On her lips, a nude pink lip liner was topped with a peach lipstick followed by clear gloss. As for her famously lush locks, stylist Lorenzo Martin started with freshly shampooed hair, applied a styling serum and blew it dry “with lots of volume, toward the back.” Then he curled big sections with a 2-in. curling iron, pinned them back, and set them with hairspray. After 20 minutes, he pulled the pins out, and, he says, “put her hair upside down and brushed it with a boar-bristle brush. Then I flipped it back, teased it and back-brushed it, then tousled it again to get gorgeous waves.” For more of Lopez’s exclusive interview, in which she sets the record straight on all the rumors, pick up this week’s special issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. –Reporting by Julie Jordan

She has charisma, is very pretty, has a nice body, she is an all-round entertainer, a wife and mother of two and a successful business woman… if haters can’t see that, then they are just that “HATERS”… Congratulations to Jennifer Lopes, most beautiful Woman of the world … :)

I bought the magazine. I’m not a diehard fan but she’s really beautiful on the cover and inside. Her make up artist is the best and now that Pia is gone, I only watch American Idol to see what Jennifer is wearing and her hair do. :)

She is a good-looking woman, but “the most beautiful” is a bit far-fetched. I see more beautiful women on the street every day. She has a cute face, but she is short and not well proportioned.

Everyone has different tastes. There is no way to pick one person that is beautiful to all of us. Jennifer is stunning and seems to be a great Mom and a good role model for our young women. Also, she’s not too skinny and owns and embraces her figure. Jennifer let’s the public know that being a healthy fit mom is hard work and something that is important to her. She’s in a loving committed relationship that she also says takes work. So really you can put her down if it makes you feel better…but really look in the mirror are you all perfect?

Jennifer Lopez is Gorgeous! She is an incredibly talented business woman who seems to juggle family and career with great finesse. She represents todays American Woman with class, beauty and brains. She certainly deserves the title of The World’s Most Beautiful Woman.

Jennifer Lopez will be beautiful even when she is 80 years old. Just like Raquel Welch who is still stunning. Latin women have that exotic beauty and sexiness about them. I love Jennifer Lopez!
