Well, she already has the booty.

Kim Kardashian showed what a damn good Jennifer Lopez impression she can do, as evidenced by her appearance at the 2009 "Teen Choice Awards."

With her updated hair and makeup, she emitted the same J. Lo glow that made the singer/actress/paparazzi magnet such a beauty icon.

So what does it take to look like J.Lo, version 2.0? Perfectly smooth, golden highlighted hair certainly helps, but really, it's all about the makeup: Bronzed skin, peachy lips and cheeks, light eye makeup and major eyelashes are the hallmarks of the look, and she nailed each element with precision.


So is this beauty homage to Jennifer Lopez coincidental or completely intentional? My money's on the latter: Kardashian has recently been working with makeup artist Scott Barnes, the man responsible for said "J. Lo Glow" who still works with Lopez herself.
