Makeup Tutorial – Jennifer Lopez Same Girl Music Video Inspired Look

Jennifer Lopez Same Girl Music Video Makeup

I have been a Jennifer Lopez fan for years… from way back in the day when she was a dancer on “In Living Color” (yes, I am that old… and no – you can’t laugh. lol)  Her style has always been one that I have admired and her makeup is always on point.  I have been on pins and needles wanting to do this look.  It was difficult to pull off because I chose the look in the video that you can’t see very well since it is covered under Jennifer’s hat, but I used her look as inspiration and added some extra color to it to create the look I have here.  She had sultry smoky eye that looked like it incorporated a taupe-silver shade.  Since I have been wanting to use my Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette in a tutorial – I chose to use a pink hue with a silver/taupe to create this look.  I am pretty happy with how it came out.

At the end of the day – even if I wanted to use her Makeup in the video as the base for my creation, I really wanted to concentrate on the message that the song portrayed.

Cause in the end, I’m still the SAME GIRL… I don’t owe nobody!

Just a quick note about foundation… I have been asked a few times about my foundation routine.  I haven’t used foundation in 2 years.  I have tried & used it a few times (maybe 3x) in the last 2 years as trials for companies – but I do not wear foundation or primer.  If I do use primer I use the following:  Laura Geller Spackle, Benefit Porefessional or I use my Mally Evercolor Pore Perfection compact to set my makeup.  However, I truly do not use face products like that often and it is rare.  I’ll be touching base on my skincare routine, etc. in the next month.  Stay tuned…

When I had this look in mind, I wanted to make sure to create a look that would mimic JLo’s perfect bronzed and contour makeup that is always done so effortlessly.  I also loved the fact that she wore a New York Yankees hat (we are Yankees fans in our house), since she is a girl from the Bronx.  Since I am from Hawaii, I wanted to do something similar and rock out a “Maui Built” hat since I am from Maui.  I thought it was a cute interpretation. 🙂

I haven’t been taking very good eye photos lately – but it’s because I just stopped doing them the last few months and I have been focusing more on my overall look.  I’ll be sure to get good ones in future looks, so you can see the detail in the eye makeup.

I took the above photo about 6 hours later and wanted to show this look as well.  This photo was taken with Flash (since it was at night).  Most of my photos are taken during the day in natural lighting.

I hope you all enjoyed this look!  Thank you so much to all of you for your support and love over the last few years through my journey here on my blog and on YouTube.  So many changes have happened over the last year and all for the positive.  So many awesome blessings have also come my way.  This makeup post marks more than just a look I was inspired by in a music video – but it also reminds me of this journey that I am on.  I’ve met so many people – some were awesome and positive influences, others were generating negativity that I had to turn my back on, but everything happens for a reason and I learned that I am a better person because of the experiences I have had.  Thank you to all – I look forward to bringing you more looks, inspiration, my life I love and so much more!

I’ma keep on growing
Keep on shining
Just wanna do me
I had to thank God ’cause he chose me

– Jennifer Lopez, Same Girl

    A very pretty look. And a strong message for any woman to remember. We are the same girl and we don’t owe anybody! 🙂

    • thank you 🙂 And yes – we are the same girl and we definitely don’t owe anybody! 😉

  • I like how you blended out the shades 😉

  • Nicki Zevola

    Thats hot! I’ve never tried to do my makeup like a celebrity — any celebrity — but this is pretty inspiring.

    • thank you! This is my second recreation of a look from her – I did her yellow lip look last year. I think they are so fun 😀 especially when you put your own spin on it 😉

  • Amazing look! I love J.Lo!

  • Noelle

    I absolutely LOVE this look!

  • I love this eye look! I’m so glad it’s Naked 3. I have it but would have totally bought it just to recreate your eye balls!

    • Brooke – you seriously are too sweet to me! xo

  • BeautyJudy

    This song sounds very special to you, but the look you did from it is so classic – looks great!

    • thank you so much. It is a nice song – very becoming of what I have had to endure as a YouTuber… but definitely enjoyed the look. 🙂

  • Justina

    I love this look! Very pretty.

  • MyNewestAddiction

    Definitely see where you got the inspiration!

  • Nidia Doherty

    I like this look.. but the standout for me was the lips! I’m generally not one for a nude lip – they’re generally too pale, or have the wrong color undertone. I couldn’t take my eyes off your lips! This is definitely a ‘your lips but better lippie’ for you.

    • thank you! 🙂 This is quite possibly my favorite nude lipstick of all time – I need to get a back up I’m just about done with this one. I have used many nudes, but this one really does compliment me. Thank you so much! xo

  • You’re such a talented MUA! I love this look.

  • thank you so much! I tried to seem hardcore… though I’m really not. lmao Thank you! 😀

  • lol – you are not old. lol I loved ILC… i have some DVDs of the seasons in my closet somewhere. People don’t believe me when I tell them that Jim Carey didn’t start off as Ace Ventura or Dumb and Dumber. lol And thank you!

  • Me, too! I remember talking about it on the bus to school! LOL

  • Another ILC fan here, but I had no idea that was the future J. Lo when I watched it! Jim Carey as Vera De Milo … I hated it! LOL

    • LMAO… Yes – that drove me nuts from Jim too. Yay – In loving color! 😀

  • myCosmeticBag

    Beautiful nude lip

  • Betzy Carmona

    Love the eyes 🙂

  • kSquaredGlamour
