Spotlight On: Mary Phillips!

Mary Phillips

We had a chance to catch up with Mary Phillips, Jennifer’s super talented makeup artist, to get the scoop on her work and what it’s like to work with Jennifer! As Jennifer’s top makeup artist for the past 4 years, you’ve no doubt seen her work.  She has worked with Jennifer on her music videos, American Idol, the Dance Again World Tour, magazine covers, red carpets all over the world, and more. If Jennifer worked on it, chances are, Mary

Mary was nice enough to let us call her on her only day off in weeks to tell us all about her work and why she loves her job.


DAWT Memory Book Photos & Video

As you may recall, we put a fanbook together and delivered it to Jennifer at her last show in Puerto Rico in December! Jennifer loved the book and said, “You guys [BB] always put together beautiful things!”

Here are the photos and a video of the experience that Yoan put together:


First of all, I want to thank you guys for your patience and to apologize for posting this so late. Erika and I have been having such a tight schedule between work and family issues that made it almost impossible to sit down and work together on the story and the video we made to show you guys the book. Enjoy the video and again please accept our apologies. LOVE!

Note: A few fans sent us incomplete info/bad photos and never responded to our e-mails requesting information, so if you don’t see your picture featured, that’s why. Sorry!

We hope you guys liked the book and THANK YOU to each and every single one of you guys. We received a total of 130 submissions!

If you have any questions, please get in touch with us via BB or Twitter @BBjlo @Yoan_JLOVER @BellaJLo


Here are photos of the moment Jennifer received the book!

Top 12 JLo Moments of 2012

2012 has been another banner year for our girl! She embarked on her first ever world tour, appeared in two films, released a Greatest Hits album, collaborated with a variety of new artists and a million other things! Needless to say, narrowing down our favorite moments to 12 was a difficult task. Read on to see our highlights.


Dance Again tour in Rotterdam

October 29th, the day Jennifer performed live in concert in my country the Netherlands, for the first time! As some of you might know, I’ve traveled the world (Berlin, New York, Athens, London, Los Angeles and Antwerp) to see Jenn in person. Luckily I’ve seen Jennifer perform several times before. I attended the Antwerp and London concerts of her Dance Again Tour. However, attending a concert of Jenn in my home country was something really unique and special to me.

I met up with Beyond Beautiful JLo staff members Stefan and Lianne yesterday, along with Yvonne, who flew in from London, and another Dutch lover, Manou. All of us bought golden circle tickets for the show, this resulted in spots right in front of the catwalk. Best spots in the house if you ask me. A little before 9.30 p.m. Jennifer finally hit the stage. After “Hello lovers. Rotterdam!” she started, like always, with my ultimate favorite performance song: Get Right. All of us were on a high when we saw our favorite superstar up on the stage right in front of us.

Throughout the show, Jennifer danced sultry, sang her heart out, talked with the audience and shook hands. This during a show which featured many of her hits like Waiting For Tonight, Love Don’t Cost A Thing, If You Had My Love, Jenny From The Block, On The Floor and the final song of the night Dance Again. I have to say this was the best JLo concert I ever attended: her voice was amazing, her energy level was sky high, she glowed on stage, had lots of interaction with the fans, had the crowd on her side and seemed to be in her element on stage. Not only Miss Lopez, but her band and dancers delivered an awesome performance too. Us lovers had a blast, she even took Yvonne’s Puerto Rican flag and did an improvised dance number with it!

After the show we spotted Benny Medina at the back of the venue. I decided to walk down to him to say hi and give my compliments on the show. Benny invited me over to him, we had a little chat about the concerts I attended. Then he even invited us backstage to say hi to Jennifer herself! As you can imagine we were on cloud 9! We followed him backstage, walking by Jenn’s mom Guadalupe, the coconuts and Mark Young, to a room where Jenn was meeting up with the Tweet2Meet winners. When they left it was our turn. Jennifer was a doll, like always. She hugged all of us twice and chatted a little with us. She even thanked me personally for all my support during the shows, which was really special to me. Benny was so nice to take some pics of us with her on my camera. After that, some of her people took some more group pics of us. We’ve been told they will end up on soon.

Meeting Jennifer was the perfect ending of one of the best nights of my life! Being able to say hi backstage and to take a picture with her was a true blessing. Many thanks to Benny Medina and Jennifer herself for making this possible. I can speak for the 5 of us to say we experienced a night we will never forget! The JLOVE continues.

I also wanted to share some of my pictures with all of you guys out there, enjoy!
