Jennifer Lopez slayed the red carpet at the Oscars on Sunday night. The stunning 45 year old actress/singer wore a flowing Elie Saab couture gown that I just couldn't get enough of. Everything from the plunging neckline to the long train had me oohing and aahing! But what I loved most was how simple and chic her makeup, hair and nails looked; maintaining all of the focus on her beautiful gown. Today I'm sharing the inspiration and steps on how to recreate JLo's beauty look straight from the professionals at L’Oréal Paris. Keep reading to find out how you can #GetTheLook!
MAKEUP ARTIST: Mary Phillips for L’Oréal Paris
INSPIRATION: A departure from Jennifer’s Golden Globes look, Mary’s inspiration was drawn mostly by Jennifer’s sparkly, ethereal gown. As such, she stuck to a monochromatic palette of warm peaches and diffused bronzes around her eye, paired with a cool toned pink lip that had glacier blue undertones. The moment felt very royal – almost princess-like.
STEP 1: Mary prepped the skin with L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Moisture Blur ($24.99).
STEP 2: Next, she applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Classic Tan ($12.99) followed by Armani Fluid Sheer #13 as a highlighter.
STEP 3: She enhanced brows using L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Designer in Blonde ($7.99).
STEP 4: To create the eye look, Mary turned to NEW L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude ($19.99, available in April) followed by accents of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Smokissime Powder Eyeliner Pen in Taupe Smoke ($9.99).
STEP 5: She then curled lashes and applied multiple coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Black Angel Mascara ($7.99).
STEP 6: To complete the look, she used L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Color in Timeless Rose ($12.99) on the lips.
NAIL ARTIST: Tom Bachik, L’Oréal Paris Global Nail Artist
INSPIRATION: “Tonight it was all about the dress. The gown was the star of the show and we wanted to create a monochromatic, tonal nail look that would enhance the overall look.”
STEP 1: Tom added a little length to nails with clear tips to create a 1930s almond shape.
STEP 2: For a subtle, sparkly contrast, he applied L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish in I Like It Chunky ($5.99) underneath the nail, adding a pop of rose gold.
STEP 3: Last, he added 2 coats of L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish in Mauveless ($5.99) and completed the look with L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil ($24.99) for shine and moisture.
HAIRSTYLIST: Lorenzo Martin for L’Oréal Paris
INSPIRATION: “Jennifer’s dress was truly the inspiration behind her hair tonight. I wanted to keep Jennifer’s big, beautiful dress the star of the show, and so her hairstyle was simple and chic. The sleek high ponytail was also great for the rainy weather!”
STEP 1: To begin, wash hair with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight Shampoo ($4.99), Pre-Conditioner ($6.99), and Conditioner ($4.99).
STEP 2: After washing, massage L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight Straight Perfecting Balm ($6.99) all over wet hair to fight against humidity.
STEP 3: Blow dry hair with a round brush.
STEP 4: Set hair in big, hot rollers to create volume. Once set, remove the rollers and brush through the hair spraying on L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Strand Smoother Serum Spray ($4.99).
STEP 5: Gather hair into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic with metal hooks on each end to keep the ponytail high
STEP 6: Finish the look off with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Lock It Weather Control Hairspray ($4.99) to combat the rainy weather.
