Happened upon this image of Jennifer Lopez at the launch party for her first album On the 6. Then compared it to an image of her from the 2013 Met Ball last night. It's 14 years later.
So what's changed?
JLo's brows now are so. much. better.
And overall her makeup is better, but that, in part, is because makeup textures and application techniques in 1999 were different. Plus, comparing a non-smoky-eye look with a smoky-eye look isn't quite fair.
While JLo's insane skin appears not to have aged in the least, maturity has hollowed out under her cheekbones a bit.
Let's go back to young-collagen Jennifer Lopez in 1987...
...and Jennifer Lopez in 1990.
Again, Jennifer Lopez in 1999...
...and Jennifer Lopez 2013. (Seriously, since 1987 -- 26 years ago -- her brows are the only obvious improvement.)
For fun, now let's look at JLo's first music video, "If You Had My Love:"
I still love her makeup in this vid.
And for fun, let's look at Adam Rodriguez then, and in 2012 on the Magic Mike red carpet:
Oh, right. Jennifer Lopez. So, what do you think of JLo years ago vs now?
