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

I heard an interview on a local radio station with a rep. from People. It makes sense that they chose Jennifer Lopez because they couldn’t care less what person they chose as long as it sells magazines. When the rep. was asked why they picked her, she responded, “She’s a judge on American Idol, she has a hit song, her name is being mentioned a lot.” It’s not about race, beauty, personality, being genuine, etc. It’s only about picking someone they think will sell their magaines.

Totally agree with Saddie!! I am not a big fan of J Lo. But i dont understand why people have to criticise? None of us are perfect. Let her enjoy the news and she is very pretty and its a great compliment for her age and for the fact that shes a Mum. Well done Jen!!!

All of our hair is temple hair, meaning it was cut from the temple and not mixed in the process, all hair is kept aligned in the same direction. This process is very important! If hair cuticle is not all aligned in the same direction, it will start to tangle as soon as you wash it. Some hair may look very nice when you first receive it, but after a few washes it becomes dull, dry and start to tangle, you can brush all you want and the minute you stop brushing it will just tangle again and will have that “Birds Nest” look to it the minute you stop brushing it. This means that the hair is not temple hair! it is hair that has been collected from different donors, some cuticles facing up and some down, basically “LEFT OVERS” all the tangling in your hair is the effect of using cheap leftovers hair!
