I’m not exactly sure where this singer/actress found the youth elixir she’s been using, but if I could get my hands on that, like, now, that’d be great. Jennifer Lopez posed with minimal makeup and had such a fresh, dewy glow. Her skin couldn’t have looked any better, which comes as a surprise to literally no one.
After seeing the photo she posted to Instagram, it got me thinking about the most natural way to create radiant skin without having to add a ton of highlight. Don’t get me wrong, I love highlighter as much as the next girl, but it’d be nice to get a J. Lo-status glow from time to time, too, you know?
Once you see her photo, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about here. Even if you still wanted to add a highlight as a finishing step, it definitely wouldn’t hurt to have naturally glowing skin as a base. This is the perfect low maintenance routine for summer, especially if you’re all about creating “no makeup” makeup.
Now, we can’t all be J. Lo (she’s a one and only kind of gal, after all), but there are certainly ways that you can get a gorgeous, fresh face look that’s all your own.
She's such a beauty. Now, let's find out more about how to get a glow like hers, shall we?
1. Create A Shimmering Base
Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer, $36, Sephora
Priming your face with a product that has the shimmer built-in will eliminate the need to add a highlight, unless you're just looking for even more glow power, that is.
Embryolisse Lait-Créme Concentré, $28, Sephora
Having a face that's extremely moisturized is key to getting dewy skin. You can opt to use this moisturizing primer without shimmer on its own, or take a tip from Whitney Port and mix it together with a shimmering primer to have hydration and shine, all in one step.
2. Add A Lightweight Foundation
Born This Way Foundation, $39, Too Faced Cosmetics
This foundation is filled with coconut water to hydrate the skin and keep you absolutely radiant all day. It really is the perfect thing to add to your face for flawless minimal makeup.
3. Gloss It Up
Balm Dotcom, $12, Glossier
For the final step of your glow process, you need to add a glossy finish to your face. With this universal skin salve you can add shine to your lips, cheekbones and eye lids. You can even slick down those brow hairs and get them in just the right place.
You too can achieve J. Lo-type radiance in just three easy steps. Because all-natural is the only way to be this summer, if you ask me.
