We rounded up some of our favorite JLo glam moments from recent years. Everything from her low-effort, no-makeup-makeup moments to her red-carpet-ready looks.

Monochromatic Mocha 

While the latte makeup trend is currently having its moment to shine, we’ve long been fans of a warm, bronzey makeup look.  Here, Lopez wears a sparkling brown cropped top and maxi skirt with a monochromatic mocha makeup look.

Biden and Harris’ Inauguration 

Lopez donned an all-white ensemble at the White House to perform for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ inauguration in 2021. For her makeup, artist David Velasquez coupled an icy silver smokey eye with a glossy nude lip. 

Bold Burgundy

When in doubt, wear a burgundy pout. Lopez pairs a soft glam eyeshadow and a dewy, skin-like foundation base together with a bold lip for the perfect holiday look.

Pink Champagne

Lopez wowed the masses in a neon pink puffer coat from H&M in a 2022 New York Times feature. To complement her head-to-toe pink outfit, she wears a simple yet glowy makeup look with accentuated rosy cheeks and a pale peach lip color. 

Gunmetal Goddess

It’s no surprise that Lopez loves to wear a smokey eye. In this rendition, Lopez matches the rhinestones throughout her outfit with a gunmetal smokey eye and vibrant highlight placed near the inner corners of her eyes and on her nose.

No-makeup Makeup

In the most effortless no-makeup makeup look,  Lopez pulls off this sweet gingham look with her hair pulled back in a slightly tousled bun, some eyeliner on her upper and lower lashline, and a simple rosy pink lip.
