Ever look at J.Lo and wonder how you can get that same sexy glow? The answer is to create a dewy look with your makeup. Sure, most gals have a natural glow, but it doesn't always shine through as much as they want. Good looking skin starts from within, so to achieve that ethereal glow you have to take care of your body, drinking lots of water and eating healthy food. After that, a few makeup tips can help you do the dewy look.


Create the perfect canvas for the dewy makeup look by starting with clean and fresh skin. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser to remove any dirt and buildup that results in a complexion that looks less than heavenly.


Exfoliate your skin to slough off dead cells that make you look dull. Be sure to use scrub made specifically for your skin, or you could cause irritation and end up with a red flush instead of a sexy glow.


Spritz a light misting of rosewater on your face. Besides smelling super nice, the rosewater helps create the basis for a heavenly glow.


Once dry, moisturize your face with a gentle hydrating lotion. Look for a firming day cream with light-reflecting particles to achieve the sexy dewy look you desire, or mix a small amount of light illuminator in with your normal moisturizer to help get your glow on.


Sweep powder foundation onto your face with a big, fluffy brush. Applying a light layer helps cover up any problem areas and leaves you with a hint of dew. Look for shimmery and glowing shades to really boost your dew factor


Apply a light amount of bronzer to your face to finish off the golden glow. Use a brush to dust the areas of your face that typically see the sun, such as the top of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and your forehead. Kiss the apples of your cheeks with peach blush and you've got a fresh and radiant glow.
