Jennifer Lopez's Makeup - Celebrity Get the Look - iVillage Beauty Makeup Studio

Jennifer Lopez's taste in clothes may vary between hip-hop and high fashion, but her choice in makeup remains constant. Always opting for the ultra-feminine, she chooses light shimmers and soft, smoky shadows, which highlight her features without being overpowering. If you'd like to get Jennifer's radiant look, follow these simple steps from celebrity makeup artist Sonia Kashuk.

This look is dewy and fresh, so make sure you use a light moisturizer and lip conditioner to prime your face before you apply your makeup.

STEP 1 Dot a small amount of cream foundation on to the skin, and blend with fingers. Keep the application very sheer. If your skin is in good shape, use just a bit of foundation to cover any small imperfections and skip the overall application. If needed, follow with a littleconcealerunder the eyes, and blend well. Don't use powder to set the foundation.

STEP 2 Before you begin the eyes, apply a light layer of foundation over the entire lid, which will act as a base coat for the shadow. Brush a little excess powder, under the eye only, to catch any fallout from the powder shadows. This should be brushed away after the eye makeup is complete.

STEP 3 Apply a layer of a light-shimmer cream eye shadow from the brow bone down to the lash line, blending well with your fingers. Cover this with a light application of facial powder. The powder will help set the cream shadow and enable you to apply powder shadow on top of the cream. Using a small to medium eye contour brush, apply a neutral beige shadow to the crease for added depth and contour.

STEP 4 Curl lashes with an eyelash curler, then apply numerous coats of black mascara to upper lashes only. For more definition, use a liner brush and "smudge" a little black shadow on the outermost corner of the lash line, top and bottom.

STEP 5 Using an eyebrow pencil, lightly fill in the brows as needed. In choosing a brow pencil color, go at least four shades lighter than your hair color, so the color always looks soft and the brow isn't too severe. Blend the color, and groom the brows using a bristle brow brush.

STEP 6 For glowing cheek color, use a cream blush in a warm, rosy shade. Use your fingertips to dot blush onto the apples of the cheeks and blend back toward the hairline, keeping the edges very soft. Cream blush can be heavily pigmented so start light and build until you get the desired color and effect.

STEP 7 Line the lips with a neutral taupe lip liner. On the inside of the lip, apply light shimmering gloss.
