Jennifer Lopez uses Transparent Finish in new movie, 'Maid in Manhattan'

New York, NY – According to Karen Infantino on the website, “Once upon a time there was a beautiful single mother from the Bronx named Marisa Ventura (Jennifer Lopez), who worked as chambermaid in a swanky Manhattan hotel. One day a rich and handsome senatorial hopeful named Christopher Marshall (Ralph Fiennes) mistakes Marisa for a fellow hotel guest. The two spend an afternoon together and he sweeps her off her feet. Then Marshall invites Marisa to a black-tie gala, and her look goes from dust cloth to diva. Though she's not sporting glass slippers, she's dripping in Harry Winston diamonds and vintage Bob Mackie. ‘Maid in Manhattan is a Cinderella story,’ says costume designer Albert Wolsky. ‘But everything that we did until she falls in love,’ says hairstylist Melissa Yonkey, ‘was very simple and clean.’ ”

Ms. Infantino goes on to state that ‘The reason Lopez's look was so clean and simple for most of Maid in Manhattan was, well, simple. ‘Marisa's a mom,’ says makeup artist Margot Boccia, ‘and she doesn't have much time.’ Boccia started with a custom blend of Make Up For Ever Face & Body liquid makeup in Nos. 2, 12 and 18. Blush was a combo of Shu Uemura pink 02 and Amber 81. She finished the look with a light dusting of [Transparent Finish powder by Skin by Alison Raffaele. Boccia lined and filled in Lopez's lips with Hard Candy Super Good lip pencil in Digital, and then applied a bit of MAC Plink lipstick.’

Unlike traditional translucent powders, Transparent Finish never looks ashy on dark skin, never settles into fine lines on dry skin, never turns orange-y on oily skin, and never irritates sensitive skin.
