Who doesn’t want to steal Jennifer Lopez’s patented flawless skin? Her makeup artist Troy Jensen spilled his secrets at a recent Make Up For Ever event.
“I use highlighter before foundation for that glow that looks like it comes from within.” Troy applies it on top of the cheekbones, down the center of nose, on top of the cupid’s bow and in the inner corner of eye. “Full coverage foundation can look a little dull or matte. With highlighter underneath it gives a really naturally looking glow.”
Many Latinas also need to color correct to cover any brown spots or purple-y tones, especially under the eyes or around the mouth, Troy advises. His technique is to apply an orange color corrector before the foundation or to mix it together with the foundation and apply to any problem areas.
When it comes to concealing under eye circles, less is more, he says. “Don’t use concealer on the entire under eye area, because that can look like a mask.” Instead, look at your face first to determine your problem areas. “In general, I find the outer and inner corners of the eye are the places that need the most help,” he says.
