Despite what you might assume, achieving Jennifer Lopez-levels of glowing skin isn’t impossible for those of us without an on-call glam squad. According to celebrity make-up artist Ariel Tejada, who created one of her recent glowy looks and regularly works with everyone from Chrissy Teigen to Ashley Graham and the Kardashian/Jenners, a natural-looking glow can be achieved yourself in just six simple steps.
Step one: Don’t forget your skincare
“When I look at J-Lo, I think of how she exhibits youth, sex appeal and confidence – and all of that can come from having skin that looks good. Without prepping your skin well, you can be prone to breakouts, wrinkles and discolouration, while hydrated skin looks and feels supple and youthful. Skincare is the key step for flawless make-up.
“First of all, don’t only remove make-up with a wipe. You need to use a good cleanser and then exfoliate your skin a couple of times a week to make sure you’re getting rid of dead skin cells and keeping your skin super clean. I have a very strict routine that includes a cleanser, toner, serum, moisturiser and eye cream, but it’s vital that everyone at least cleanses well and uses a hydrating moisturiser. I’d recommend La Mer’s Cool Gel Cream.”
