Jennifer Lopez Look

Jennifer Lopez's flawless red-carpet makeup.

Celebrity makeup artist Matthew Vanleeuween created her look using exclusively NARS products. Here's how to get it:

Eyes: Eyes were prepped with Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base (available May 1st). Apply D. Gorgeous Single Eyeshadow, a matte, dusty lilac, all over lid to brow. Using Brousse Duo Eyeshadow, define crease with the dark purple shade. Line eyes with Nuits Blanches Eyeliner Stylo for definition. To finish, curl lashes and coat with two coats of Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara.

Cheeks: Vanleeuween applied Desire Blush, a bright, cotton candy pink, to cheeks, and followed with Orgasm Illuminator to define cheek and brow bones with a golden glow. He topped that with Gueules de Nuit Cream Blush for extra punch (available May 1st; use Enchanted Cream Blush for a similar effect).

Lips: Lips were coated in Cruising Lipstick, a gorgeous nude pink, and topped with Lip Gloss in Sweet Dreams to add shimmer and enhance the pout.

To bring the look together, Orgasm Illuminator was also applied to the decolletage, arms and legs to give Jennifer her trademark glow.

Summer makeup

Time to toss aside the rich foundations and matte creams in favor of lighter products that allow the skin to breathe.

Though you should ease up on the amount of cosmetics you use in the summer, it doesn't mean you need to give it up altogether. If you can't bear the thought of going without makeup (or aren't as lucky as Miss Baby Skin).

Tinted moisturizer

During the hotter months, the last thing we want to do is pile heavy cream and powder foundations on top of our over-hated skin. If you must use a base, tinted moisturizers have come a long way in the last few years. Coverage ranges from sheer to medium, and are light enough to give you coverage while keeping you cool and refreshed. Apply with fingers for more control, or with a damp sponge for a more sheer application. Bonus: the dampened sponge feels amazing on skin, especially when the weather is muggy.

Touch of Bronzer

Bronzer is perfect to warm you up and add a little color to pasty winter skin. Apply where the sun would naturally hit your face - forehead, nose, cheeks and chin-- with a fan-shaped brush to get a subtle, sun-kissed look.

Tinted lipbalm

Heavy lipsticks and glosses are the arch-enemy of tousled tresses in the summer wind, so skip both and opt for a tinted lip balm. These balms do double duty by moisturizing sun-chapped lips and adding the perfect sheer hint of color.

Watch Obsession :)

White accessories are very popular for summer. However, they can be worn all year round. A white watch can be flirty and fun, or classy and sophisticated, all of which are perfect for summertime. I don’t usually wear a watch at all, but this summer I’m obsessed and have to get one!

Clear skin must have!!!!

I just can't tell you how much I love, love, love and love some more my Clarisonic Mia! I've been using the Mia for a few weeks now and I can honestly tell you that I've seen a huge difference in my skin. My skin feels unbelievably smooth, even skin tone, smaller pores, less break outs and scars have cleared up. This has made such a HUGE difference in my skin soft and clean... the Mia just takes it to the next level. I totally think the Clarisonic Mia is worth every penny. I actually look forward to using it.  I keep this pretty little thing in my shower (it's water proof!) and use it every night before bed (or whenever I take a shower). :) This is one of the best things I've gotten all year!

My skin Concerns:
Oily/combination acne-prone skin
Breakouts, Oily skin, Dark spots
