Skin looks best when it’s bright, healthy and glowing, but stress and other day-to-day challenges often get in the way of looking great. That’s where the right products can help. If you’ve lost your glow lately, here are some tips for getting it back.
And now with American Idol judge, mother of two, fashion icon and recently declared as People magazine’s “most beautiful woman in the world” for 2011, it is no surprise to know that women everywhere are clamoring to get Jennifer Lopez’s gorgeous glow!
Make your skin glow like J-Lo with these product essentials:
Start with a clean canvass
It’s important to start with a fresh face that is well moisturized. Try Goldfaden’s 3-in-1 Daily Moisturizer ($65 at Goldfaden.com) to prep and protect your skin.
Try a luminizing foundation
A luminizing foundation gives skin a subtle glow and natural-looking finish using light-reflecting ingredients. Try Nars Sheer Glow Foundation ($42 at Sephora), which provides sheer, buildable coverage (which we love), boosts brightness and leaves skin with improved texture and tone. Also try Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation ($38 at Stila Cosmetics).
Go for a faux glow
A bronzer can give your skin a brightening boost. Fresh High Noon Fresh Face Glow ($36 at Sephora) is a cream formula that you can wear alone or under makeup to give skin a subtle, sunkissed glow. Clinique True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer ($24.50) bestows brilliance with the flick of a powderbrush.
Use a highlighter
Subtle shimmer or light-reflecting ingredients are the secrets to this tip. Try Benefit Girl Meets Pearl ($30 at Sephora), which gives skin a natural-looking glow. If you prefer a powder formula, try Stila All Over Shimmer Duo ($22 at Stila Cosmetics) to give your skin a subtle shimmer and warm up your complexion.
Go beyond your face
Bring your faux glow beyond your face with glominerals’ shimmer brick in gleam or luster shades ($33 at gloProfessional.com). Brush along your neck and decolletage to extend your skinkissed look.
