Ever wonder how to glow like JLo? Whether she's rockin' the red carpet or strolling with her twins, Jennifer Lopez always looks radiant! We got the scooop from makeup artist Jennifer Bradley to steal Jennifer's look!
Try serums: A deeply hydrating serum that really penetrates and absorbs on a cellular level is vital for flawless skin, says Bradley. Apply your serum before moisturizer and go for one that has a collagen-boosting formula, which fills in lines and tightens your skin, as well as one that is oil-free. Try: Time Freeze with Matrixyl 3000.
Use the right foundation: You want a foundation that is completely lightweight, and appears like you are wearing nothing at all. "If you want the 'JLo effect' on your skin, powder foundation or mineral makeup will not do," says Bradley. "You need a moisturizing foundation or a crème to powder makeup that leaves a flawless, weightless look, and gives skin a smooth texture." Apply in light strokes to cover imperfections.
Highlight your best areas: Set crème foundation with a bronzer, and then highlight cheekbones and brow bone (the area right beneath your eyebrow) with a super-fine shimmer crème. Warning: "Big, chunky, girly sparkles will not do this," says Bradley. "You don’t want to look like a showgirl!" Try: Best Bronzer and Glow Stick.
