The makeup guru, who was born in the Dominican Republic and now based in the Bronx, New York, says: ‘I wasn’t surprised by any of the comments because I’ve been told that my whole life.

Rodriguez says she started getting comments about looking like JLo after she moved to the US at the age of nine. 

When she was 16 she started working at McDonald’s and customers would often pick up on the ressemblance.

She has been stopped by strangers many times, including once while driving and another time by a persistent waiter who ‘refused to take no for an answer.’

She began creating content on TikTok and Instagram under the name @pocaeve to share fun make-up videos.

Her videos include makeup looks inspired by the All I Have and the I’m Real music videos, as well as an iconic JLo look from the 2005 Latin Billboard Awards.

While she doesn’t always see the likeness herself, Rodriguez says she’s always taken it as a compliment to be compared to the singer and even now she still feels ‘honored.’ 

She concludes: ‘I’ve been stopped countless times when I’m just walking around the city. People always ask if I’ve heard it before and I’m always like… “Yes!”

‘She’s a multi-dimensional icon. There’s no doubt about that. She’s a vibe.

‘To be honest I really don’t see it, to me this is just my face. Sometimes for a second I see it, but then I soon go back to not seeing it.

‘My favorite one is when people stare at me for ages and ask “Do you know who you look like?” because the answer is always the same.

‘When I meet new people I always get the same compliment and all my friends have always told me I look like her.

‘I have dyed my hair, had weight changes and it doesn’t matter – apparently I always look like her.’

Rodriguez has never met with her celebrity doppelgänger, but says she would love to and ‘would probably be girl-crushing’ if she did.
