Whether she’s on a red carpet, playing a concert or portraying a role, Jennifer Lopez always looks incredible. She’s constantly setting fashion trends and serving her fans iconic glam left and right. Thanks to longtime makeup artist Scott Barnes, JLo’s makeup moments are always worthy of admiring.

Here are ten iconic looks from Jennifer Lopez we will never get over.

A Smokeshow

JLo graced the red carpet of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards earlier this year in this smoky eye paired with nude lip. The glam serves drama and elegance, and we are loving it.

Lashes Galore

JLo’s character in Hustlers is iconic from the moment she steps on screen until the credits role. This glam moment, with long lashes, a beauty mark and glossy lips, is everything. We would’ve died for this look in the early 2000’s!

Au Natural

An oldie but a goodie! For this Vanity Fair shoot in 2001, Lopez and Barnes went with a more natural look. The barely-there makeup really shows off the singer’s natural beauty.

The Perfect Purple

From fashion to glam, Lopez knows how to slay a red carpet. For the 2020 Independent Spirit Awards, Barnes used his own Colour Bomb Eyeshadow Palette to craft the perfect purple smoky eye.

Red & Radiant

Red lips are gorgeous in their own right, but especially on an icon like Jennifer Lopez. This monochromatic look from season two of her show World of Dance is fire.

Bronzed Babe

Another day, another red-carpet look. This time for the Gotham Awards, the actress’ bronzed glam and intense eye looked stunning with her pulled back hair and sparkling mini dress.

The 2019 Met Gala saw many iconic looks (remember Lady Gaga’s entrance?), and JLo is no exception. Her purple eye from Barnes perfectly matched her jewels, along with fiancé ARod’s own ensemble. And we’re obsessed!

Early 2000’s Goals

Another iconic makeup moment from Lopez is from the “All I Have” music video. The nude lip, thick eyeliner and frosty eyeshadow is the epitome of the 2000’s thanks to Barnes.

Green Queen

In 2019, JLo surprised the world when she recreated her iconic Versace look from nineteen years prior. Paired with a nude lip, a glowy complexion and the perfect amount of eyeliner, this look still has our jaws on the ground.

Spot-On Selena

Last by not least, it’s impossible to discuss iconic JLo moments without mentioning her portrayal as Selena Quintanilla in Selena. The film’s key makeup artist, Jay Wejebe, stunned with his recreations of the late singer’s unforgettable looks.
