J.Lo's Glow

I am forever being asked how can one achieve Jennifer Lopez's infamous 'glow'. In fact, her 'glow' is so popular, she even named her perfume Glow right?

Well, this is my take on the whole 'J.Lo Glow' (baring in mind, friends, clients, customers have been asking me this for the last 10 years or so).

1. You're either blessed with naturally good baby-soft plump skin, where just a bit of red lipstick on your cheeks creates a glow. (I must admit I get very jealous when I see others with this perfect skin, I was even glued to Wimbledon staring at some of the women tennis players flawless skin).


2. You've got the budget for weekly/monthly expensive facials a la Jennifer Lopez (rumour has it she indulges in placenta facials, weird but hey if it works then I'm up for it).

However, my advice to everyone who asks how they can create glowing skin who don't have J.Lo's perfect skin or her big bucks for regular super pricey treatments is;

1. Begin working with your skin. Invest in a good quality cleansing regime, do not just wash your face with 'whatever is in the bathroom', as I am frequently told. It's important to use products which are designed for your skin needs and skin type. (I could babble on for ages about the importance of a good skin care regime but I'll keep it brief on this occasion.) ALWAYS remove make up before bed, I don't care how tired or sick I am, I make sure I Eve Lom. Finally, before I go off track, DO treat your skin to the occasional facial - "you're worth it".

2. The fun part....the products which can help you with your J.Lo 'glow'.

The products you use do depend on your skin type and also skin colour. I don't like long blog posts, so I'll just mention a few for today and continue with more next time.

For my skin, olive toned, when I have a tan, I love to use NUXE's Huile Prodigieuse with the gold shimmer.

Ideal for: dry skin

When I am pale, like at the moment, I am loving Daniel Sandler's watercolour blusher in spice, a warm terracotta with pink shimmer. (Perfect for those beach scenes like in J.Lo's latest music video, because this is actually waterproof, separate blog post coming soon).

Ideal for: all skin types as it's water based

I also like Paul & Joe's bronzer from the Blue Horizon Collection. I love that you can contour with this bronzer (for J.Lo chiselled cheekbones), it gives a really nice sun-kissed look with shimmer.

Ideal for: normal/combo/oily skin

Finally, for my skin with a tan or darker skin (Indian/Black), I highly recommend Iman's Afterglow bronzer. It has three genius sections which combined give skin THE AFTERGLOW! You can use a blusher brush with the Egyptian-gold section and sweep over cheekbones and blush. HOT!

What do you think?

Have you tried any of the products above? Or is there another celeb's glow you'd like?

Next time, more products to fake J.Lo's glow...MAC's Lustre drops, New CID, NARS, Benefit Cha Cha more.


  1. I love the glowy look too its my favourite and it think it seems to flatter everyone. Great post. Ive not tried any of those products xx

  2. awww thanks guys.

    Totally agree, glowing skin suits everyone, you're so lucky you have naturally glowing skin.

  3. I really need to try the Daniel Sandler blushers!! Heard so many good things x

  4. I really like the look of that Iman bronzer! Loving the colours...I am getting bored of my Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick so may treat myself to this one. ;-) xx

  5. @camilla, I want to try the other DS waterblush colours now, LOVE it.

    @jessica, Iman bronzer is sooooooo nice! So different to BB shimmer brick, I highly reccomend it, you can also use them as eyeshadows.
