I Heart J-Lo! Get Your Glow On….


Take a look at the photos below. Now take a look again. Can you believe

(apart from the obvious lack of tan in the latter) they were taken ten years apart?











The luscious La Lopez still has the same fresh-faced glow as when she first burst onto the scene with, “If you had my love”, and, dare I say it, looks even hotter now than she did in 2001!

For me, J Lo’s fabulousness has always been about the skin and the hair (ok, ok, and the fashion *am thinking plunging green Versace dress*).

At the age of 42, and as mum to three-year old twins, she has managed to maintain her inexplicably, gorgeous, dewy skin.

 Over the years I have admired and tried to replicate the fresh-faced look with mixed success. Listed below are my three tried and tested favourite products in an attempt to inject a little La Lopez glow:  


1. Laura Mercier’s Tinted Illuminating Moisturiser – provides more coverage than the average tinted moisturiser…and gives an unbelievable glow to the skin (especially when coupled with blush in NARS Orgasm)

  2. Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl – provides a beautifully healthy understated radiance when mixed in with foundation/tinted moisturiser.

3. For the body, Benefit’s Body Balm is amazing – it gives a super-hydrated, dewy, sheen when applied along the legs, arms and decolletage. For an extra punch, mix with a highlighter such as Benefit’s High Beam. 

  Ms Lopez sizzles in the September edition of Vanity Fair in her first post-divorce interview. After a string of high profile relationships with the likes of P-Diddy and Ben Affleck, and with three failed marriages behind her, she says, 

” I remain an eternal optimist about Love. I believe in Love.”

 One thing is for sure, the lovely Ms Lopez will never be short of admirers, and may be,  gorgeous hair and dewy skin aside, its her beautiful, sunny attitude that keeps her looking so fabulous ten years on.

Laura Mercier Tinted Illuminating Moisturiser available online at Houser of Fraser £33, Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl £33 available at Fenwicks, Benefit’s Body Balm £22, available online at Houser of Fraser.
