So J. Lo has been making a comeback and she is one of the latest spokespersons for L’Oreal.  I saw this ad in a magazine for L’Oreal Colour Riche le Gloss, where the look was very glossy and smokey.

She has been rocking the heavy, defined, black liner with thick, dense lashes on magazine covers and other ads.

Anyway, here she has pointed liner, peachy-bronzey eyeshadow, peach lips, full brows and full lashes.

This is what I came up with:


The Details

  • TFSI – Apply to entire eyelid, past the crease, using ring finger
  • Kevyn Aucoin The Prime Colour Creme Eye Shadow in Decadent – light golden champagne cream shadow as a coloured base, apply to entire eyelid and lower lashline using ring finger
  • NARS Mediteranee – Using brunt orange side, using the M.A.C. #224 brush, apply the orange colour to the entire eyelid up to the crease.  Also apply to the entire lower lashline
