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

Crowning someone “World’s Most Beautiful” MAKES NO SENSE! Having said that, I think JLO looks fantastic; I heart her.

How do all you haters know that by most beautiful that they are talking about looks and not overall person in who she is. Not only that Jennifer Lopez looks better than half the celebrities half her age who look like addicts, rail thin, over processed! Or do you think she can’t be beautiful because she is Latina? you people are so sad, my gosh always have to rag on someone all the time no one can enjoy anything without negativity 5 seconds later! Get lives.

She is the most non-talented successful person I have ever seen. I guess there is beauty in that.

Everyone’s idea of beauty is different. I think she’s beautiful for sure. Sometimes certain races are more drawn to their own in terms of what beautiful is. I am not Latina, but Filipina and find Jennifer Lopez extremely beautiful. You don’t have to be a “certain” race to be beautiful.

Interesting & nice to hear! She looks great on The PEOPLE Issue!

She would be even more beautiful with less makeup. She exudes happiness and that’s beautiful and she is a sweet, smart girl and that helps.
I think she deserves the title, although for me I think Jolie is still the most stunning actress to date and a lot of it has to do with her love for kids, family, charity and so on…
