    Jennifer Lopez is 44-years-old? Come again? Listen, we know she has a team (who are we kidding? An army of hair and makeup people) but we've got to give credit where credit is due. We don't care if the entire state of Nevada helped J. Lo get ready for the Billboard Music Awards last nightshe was the best look of the night!      

    From her voluminous retro hair that was strategically pulled up with a mini-ponytail (hello, instant facelift) to the smoky cat eyes, the songstress gave new meaning to the word "hot."

    Could she have gone for fewer brushstrokes of bronzer in the middle her forehead? Sure. But aside from a little unblended bronzer, this look was perfection.

    Get the Look: Start by spraying damp hair with a weightless "plumping" volume spray like Oribe Volumista Mist for Volume from roots to ends. Using a medium to large barrel round brush, blow out hair.

    Wrap sections of hair around the brush and blast the roots with heat for extra lift. When blowing out the shaft of the hair, turn the brush vertically when you get to the ends and blast with heat. This will give the ends curl and movement.

    Once hair is completely dry, take the front section of hair and pull up into a small ponytail and secure at the top of your head with an invisible hair band. Pull ponytail up and apart and blend it with the rest of your hair.

    Spray entire head with a flexible hold conditioning hairspray that builds volume, like R+Co Outer Space Flexible Hairspray. Locks still looking limp? Flip your head and tousle the bejesus out of your roots while spraying hair.

    To copy J. Lo's seductive smoky eyes, start by covering entire eyelids with a matte powder eye shadow in ivory or cream. Then, apply a long-lasting shimmery cream eye shadow in metallic pink beige like MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Matic in ME-54 to the eyelids.

    Now, apply a mushroom taupe eye shadow like MAC Eye Shadow in Coquette above the creases and create a V-shape with the outer corner of your creases and eyes. Next, line your upper lash line with a waterproof eyeliner pencil like Lancôme Le Stylo Waterproof in Minuit, making the line gradually thicker as you get towards the outer corners.

    Use eyeliner pencil to create a thin line along your lash line. Smudge into your lash line to soften. Next, with your ring finger, dab shimmery white or cream eye shadow in the inner corners of your eyes. Complete this look with two to three coats of your favorite volume-building mascara.

    We don't know if Jennifer has been visiting a witch doctor or perhaps she's chugging fairy dust-infused elixirs, but damn, she looks good. And we didn't even bitch about her nude lip! That's how much we loved this look!
