That flowing hair, that gorgeous face, that toned body—but it's her skin that is the real attention grabber. JLo simply glows. How does she get that luminescent look? Other than that fact that her skin is in amazing shape, a foundation mixed with a liquid highlighter will give you that “glow from within.” But a powder that has light reflective pigment in it will definitely give an airbrushed quality, too. It's the illusion of perfect looking skin. After you apply your foundation, set it with a loose powder like Prescriptives Magic Liquid Powder ($35), which is meant to diffuse the light, making your skin look flawless. Lines, wrinkles, and pores are less visible. You don't have to worry about this powder looking too cakey because it's actually 70 percent water. Even if perfect skin is just an illusion, it's great that everyone can get a little bit of J. Lo's glow.
