Ever since Jennifer Lopez posted her now-infamous no-makeup selfie, our offices have been abuzz: How the hell does her skin stay so insanely flawless? We'd just about chalked it up to voodoo, seeing as the woman simply refuses to age. But, Byrdie has the true (and definitely more plausible) regimen behind J.Lo's glowing skin, courtesy of her makeup artist, Mary Phillips.
As you'd expect, most of Jennifer's gorgeous makeup looks start with good skin care. "I'd say skin prep is the most important part of your makeup routine," Phillips tells the site. "People should start thinking of their skin care as their makeup — if your skin isn't in prime condition, it hinders what I'm able to accomplish [as a makeup artist]." She smooths on a heady cocktail of L'Oréal's Age-Perfect Glow Renewal Day Lotion and RevitaLift Moisture Blur before moving on to the makeup.
