Build A Better Foundation

Gone are the days of simply smearing on any old foundation and calling it a day. Getting truly radiant skin, like the always stunning Jennifer Lopez, involves finding the right makeup that works for your skin.

Opting for a double-duty foundation is a smart start. Jane Iredale's Mineral Foundation includes hyaluronic acid to deeply penetrate and moisturize the skin as well as olive squalane, a cancer-fighter that keeps skin smooth and supple, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and coenzyme Q10, a powerful antioxidant that rejuvenates, heals and protects.

If you prefer a powder foundation, try BECCA Boudoir Skin Mineral Power Foundation($30), made with specially treated minerals that are compatible with all complexions. Boudoir Skin is lightweight, sheer and easily layered with your other makeup, creating a radiant, flawless finish without any trace of cakiness.

Once you find the foundation formula that you like, buy it in a shade darker to use for contouring around your temples, below your cheekbones and along your jawline.
