Jennifer Lopez's Glam Cover Look: All the Details!

Jennifer Lopez World's Most Beautiful Cover

Jennifer Lopez may love being makeup-free at home with her twins, but for her flawless appearance as PEOPLE’s 2011 World’s Most Beautiful cover girl, she had a little help from her glam squad. Makeup artist Mary Phillips began with moisturizer, then applied foundation with a blush brush “all over her face and neck, including on her eyelids.” She followed that with peach cream blush, “beginning on the apple using less product as you go back.” She set the look with a yellow-based powder. Phillips lined Lopez’s eyes in brown, “rimming the whole eye, all the way around.” After applying creamy shadow with a hint of shimmer all over the lid with a touch of espresso color in the crease, she curled Lopez’s lashes and used mascara on both the top and bottom lashes. On her lips, a nude pink lip liner was topped with a peach lipstick followed by clear gloss. As for her famously lush locks, stylist Lorenzo Martin started with freshly shampooed hair, applied a styling serum and blew it dry “with lots of volume, toward the back.” Then he curled big sections with a 2-in. curling iron, pinned them back, and set them with hairspray. After 20 minutes, he pulled the pins out, and, he says, “put her hair upside down and brushed it with a boar-bristle brush. Then I flipped it back, teased it and back-brushed it, then tousled it again to get gorgeous waves.” For more of Lopez’s exclusive interview, in which she sets the record straight on all the rumors, pick up this week’s special issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. –Reporting by Julie Jordan

I don’t know how they come up with these results, but most beautiful woman? There are so many, who are by far, more beautiful, and don’t need a six hour make up job. Same goes for the men, George Clooney? Really? Got to be some sort of payoff!

Oh Jen. You’ve been an absolute delight on Idol and your kindness has shown through. You’ve taken on a different look as of late and you seem to have re-invented yourself in some ways. It’s a great change and as a long time fan, I’ve fallen for you all over again.

Hey PEOPLE Magazine….The United States is a COUNTRY…. in the WORLD. Jennifer Lopez happens to be American and there are many reasons to regard her as most beautiful of somewhere be it America or not. But please, do not have this breaking news headline: “World’s Most Beautiful” when the people competing in “your world” are all from the same country. They had a similar ranking in France just yesterday and they voted Monica Bellucci word’s most beautiful but she’s not French, she’s Italian…Jessica Alba came in #2…the first French woman was Laetitia Casta at # 10. If they had only included French women in their selection they would have called it France’s most beautiful people. Take note, People Magazine you should say “America’s most Beautiful” not “World’s”. You make it sound like people from other nationalities/ethnicities are not even worth mentioning and I find that insulting and politically incorrect.

She is the most beautiful celebrity, yes, more beautiful than flat-chested Natalie Portman, or unhealthy anorexic Angelina Jolie.

Jennifer gets only better with time and deserves the tittle of most beautiful woman in the world,, being really young doesn’t make you more beautiful. As for those who think the tittle should go to Kate Middleton, I say shame on you for always bowing down to the British and viewing yourselves as second bests.

She took Marc Anthony away from his PREGNANT WIFE, then after making him divorce the wife (she was, after all, a Ms Universe) denied that she and Marc later secretly married. Shameful! How does this make one Beautiful???

Jennifer is beautiful inside and out and has proven to be a successful person again. Her American Idol gig is going great and so is her music career.
