ebeauty - Celeb glam on a budget

By Sophie SK

Welcome back to this week’s eBeauty Blog, where the topic is all about achieving the perfect celeb inspired glam look, without the expensive makeup wish list.

This week’s tutorial is inspired by no other than highly sought after celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes.


Having worked with A-Listers all over the world such as Kate Hudson, Beyoncé and Celine Dion, it’s his work with JLo that set the path for monochromatic looks of bronzed skin and pale lips known as “The Glow”.

Now, it’s no secret that most sane people on this earth would kill for Jlo’s flawless beauty, but unfortunately her makeup routine comes with a hefty price tag.

Check out this week’s feature as I try to tackle Scott Barnes’s legendary makeup techniques on a budget.

As a makeup artist I firmly believe in good quality products, but this chart goes to show high prices doesn’t always necessarily mean high quality.

A difference of more than double my makeup chart in price, it goes to show celeb glam really can be achieved without having to spend all your wages.

Have a look at this week’s tutorial to see how I got on trying to recreate JLo’s signature “lit from within” Scott Barnes glam look.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s eBeauty Blog. As always, if you have recreated or taken inspiration from this look etc, you can contact me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or tag me on Instagram  @sophieskmakeup.
