Love it or not, ‘90s beauty trends are staging a comeback. One we’re actually excited about? High-shine lips. Nothing makes a statement quite like an eye-catching pout, but we know just as well as anyone that artfully swiping on layers of gloss can be a tricky task. Never fear—we’re here to help make your lips shinier than your favorite highlighter.
Follow these four easy tips and you’ll have a majorly reflective and ultra-glossy look—that has definite staying power—in no time.
Prep your lips
Before you start, make sure your pucker is in tip-top shape. Exfoliated and hydrated lips will keep product from collecting in the corners and along the rim of your mouth. Use our moisture rich Lip Primer to create a base that will smooth, define, and prime your pout for long-lasting color that won’t crack or fade.
Line your lips
Define your lips by using Lipliner in a rich hue that most closely matches your top color. (Bonus points for choosing a bold shade!) Start at the center and then trace outwards. In this case, more is better.
Once your lipstick has set, add a few layers of our sheer Lip Gloss in Crystal—make sure to extend the gloss slightly outside the line where your lip color ends. You’re good to go! But fair warning: high-shine lips are definitely not the most kissable.
