So, we don’t normally believe in magic, but when we watch someone transform herself into Jennifer Lopez in just 60 seconds with only the use of a few makeup products, we kind of turn into believers. Sure, we’ve all seen those transformation videos of makeup artists contouring themselves into different celebrities, but we’ve never seen one look so damn believable and realistic.
This week, makeup artist and beauty blogger Dilan Sabah posted a video to Instagram, showing herself mixing foundation, bronzer, highlighter, and a few layers of fake lashes until she suddenly became J.Lo before our very eyes. The video quickly got shared around the internet, garnering almost 100 thousand views in just a few days, with comments ranging from the mildly excited to the straight-up amazed—and for good reason, too.
✨✨✨OMG! I absolutely loved to do this J.LO look! You guys said that I reminded you of her which I WISH but I thought it would be funny to do a little transformation just to see how it will turn out and I loved it!!! I think it looked more real in ‘real life’. What do you think? Should we tag the queen herself? I absolutely think that Jennifer Lopez is one of the most beautiful creatures on earth! TAG everyone who loves her ❤ @jlo @makeovergeek @trendsandco @awesomemakeu.p @makeup.feed @makeupviddeoss @fakeupfix @makeupcoach @bretmansvanity @makegirlz @universodamaquiagem_oficial @hairandmakeupdiary @allmodernmakeup @maryhadalittleglam @hypnaughtypower @makeuptutorialsx0x @brian_champagne @hypnaughty.makeup @monakattan @wakeupandmakeup @hudabeauty
OK, yes, there were a bunch of other steps and products in between the start and finish, and yes, it helps that Sabah is an actual makeup artist and partial wizard with hair and features similar to J.Lo’s, but it’s still an insanely crazy process to watch, especially with the accompanying music. We can’t say we’d wear this look out, but if you’ve ever had dreams of looking exactly like Jenny from the block (Halloween goals?), here’s your basic tutorial.
