Get The Look: Jennifer Lopez on American Idol

Spring has sprung and we all crave a fresh new look. Jennifer Lopez on American Idol only has us lusting for her secret on how to achieve her refreshed, dewy, look. Celebrity makeup and brow expert Robert Bolanos has some tips and tricks for getting your J-Lo glow on.

"Invest in a great moisturizer. No matter what makeup you apply- you need to start with a good foundation- great skin. The more hydrated the skin is, the better the makeup will apply," says Bolanos.

After moisturizer, look for a primer. I am a fan of Laura Mercier, Smashbox and NARS. These formulas are great for many skin types and can address specific issues such as redness.

Apply a drop of NARS illuminator in “Orgasm” with your foundation and softly press it all over the skin. It can also be pressed over mineral makeup. This is a great “must-have” product that works on all skin types.

For the eyes, use a beautiful wash of loose shimmer to add glow without glitter. Stila makes a great shadow in Grace and Bobbi Brown has some shimmer shadoes as well.

Mascara finishes of the look- choose a formula that is “definining” to make eyes look clean and defined.

For blush- opt for a matt bronze, ever so softly on the cheekbones. Remember- you have already used a glowy product in the foundation so you don’t want to over-do it with a shimmery blush/bronzer.

Lips should be moisturized first with a lip balm then filled in with a natural lip liner without defining the outer lines of the lips. Then apply a sleek and shining lip gloss in a soft lip bitten color.
