Girl of the Moment: Sarah Jeffery in ‘Shades of Blue’

The 19-year-old actress will star alongside Jennifer Lopez in NBC's new cop drama, "Shades of Blue," out this month.

Sarah Jeffery may not be Jennifer Lopez’s daughter, but the 19-year-old actress is the next best thing — she plays her on television. The Vancouver native, who has had supporting roles on FOX’s “Wayward Pines” and DirecTV’s “Rogue,” just wrapped filming for NBC’s “Shades of Blue,” out Jan. 7. Jeffery has been acting in musical theater productions since the age of three, and says she learned to do her favorite looks, like her signature cat-eye, on set. Her favorite place to shop for beauty is Sephora, where she picks up makeup by Nars and Smashbox, along with Fresh skin-care products. “I’m obsessed with the Soy Face Cleanser,” Jeffery says. “I wear a lot of makeup on set, so I like my skin care to be natural.” Working with Lopez was a learning experience in more than just acting — Jeffery recently snapped up a Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder after hearing that her superstar TV mom swears by it. “Your makeup doesn’t melt away,” says Jeffery. “It’s amazing.” Next on Jeffery’s beauty wish list is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette. “She [Lopez] does a wicked contour,” says Jeffery. “I’ve been trying to copy it.”
