JLo’s Makeup Artist Shares How She Gets That Glowy Look
Jennifer Lopez just celebrated her 48th birthday and as always, she looks flawless. The Bronx diva is very devoted to working out and eating healthy, but when it comes to her skincare, she has a couple secrets that help her keep that glowy radiant skin.
For starters, Lopez focuses on getting enough sleep every night, which is half the battle. She also drinks plenty of water, meditates, uses a daily SPF moisturizer, gets plenty of exercise, and eats right. “I never took sun when I was younger. I wasn’t a drinker, I didn’t smoke,” she told the Today show. “But I feel like at the core, it’s like how you feel inside and who you are inside kind of shows on your face.”
Makeup artist, Mary Philips has worked with JLo in the past and she’s sharing some of the technique she’s used with her in the past. The first thing she does is massage her face in order to get the blood flowing, which also helps to alleviate puffiness.
When applying a moisturizer or foundation, most women simply drop a couple of drops directly on their faces. Instead of doing this it’s a good idea to warm it up in the palm of your hand. “Think of this almost like a step you would do when cooking or baking,” says Philips to Vogue. “The ingredients need to get to a certain temperature, and then they melt right into the skin.” This helps prevent you from applying your makeup unevenly.
