Get the Look: Jennifer Lopez @ the Golden Globes 2016

An off-shade of yellow calls for a red that's more brick than bright. Makeup artist Mary Phillips used a mix of three lip colors—L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in Rouge Envy, Nude Allude and Forbidden Kiss—for a full, ombré effect.

Recreate Jennifer Lopez's makeup look at the Golden Globes with this red pout. Wearing a yelowey mustard like gown requires a brick red lip. Loipez's long-time makeup artist, Mary Philips had mixed three shades of red to create this ombre effect. The three lip colors used are L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in Rouge Envy, Nude Allude and Forbidden Kiss.

As for Lopez's base, avoid using highlighter or luminizer, as it will create too much of a glowing complexion. Add a drop or two - three maximum of moisturizer into your liquid foundation. Mix well. And apply. This delivers the right amount of glow without going over board. Contour your cheekbones. Eyes are neutral to make lips the main focus. This is an important rule in makeup, even in fashion. Whichever your vocal point is; everything else is to compliment it, so, this means to tone down everything else, or make it as powerful as the vocal point the compliments it so there is absolutely no competition. A competition makes anyone not know what they are looking at. Mary Philips decided to stick with the first option. Makeup minimal. Focus on J.Lo's pout, because it's all about that pout.
Do add a highlighter - shimmer in the inner eye to make the eyes pop, including the white speck spark. Followed by mascara on top of the lash line, as well as the bottom lash line. Top it off with tightliner and hidden liner. Tightliner is to be placed on your outer upper lash line. Hidden liner is to be applied on your upper inner lash line. Very subtle amount of liner. It is not meant to be seen. Remember, this makeup look is all about the lips.
