Photo: Pamela Hanson It seems like practically every day that we find ourselves wondering what Jennifer Lopez uses on her skin, what she likes to wear, and whether she likes to dance to her music as much as we do. But it certainly isn't every day that we get the answers. Today is that day. After gracing the cover of InStyle's May beauty issue (for obvious reasons), Lopez hit the sand with stylist Julia von Boehm and hairstylist Chris Appleton at our Miami shoot and shared a few of her favorite things with us. Her most treasured piece of jewelry? "My blue diamond," she says, though discerning fans will recognize it as the 8.5-carat Harry Winston gem Marc Anthony proposed with back in 2003. As for her everyday staples: The star has surprisingly casual style go-tos, and swears by a cult–favorite lip gloss that you've probably used for decades, too. To get the specifics on those picks, plus to see if a certain VERY famous red-carpet look makes her all-time favorites list, read on. Greg Allen/Shutterstock Most Treasured Piece of Jewelry?
