If you tend to stay abreast of what’s in vogue in terms of skin care, the latest makeup trend to hit the masses should come as no surprise. Recently, everyone and their mother has been fawning over dewy skin with a high-shine finish (achieved with the help of illuminating moisturizers and serums aplenty). This Korean beauty trend is known as glass skin. Now, we’re seeing the glass skin trend translate to what’s popular in makeup, too. Instead of sporting matte lipstick exclusively, glassy lips with a shiny, reflective quality, are taking over. Ready to take lacquering your lips to the next level? Here’s how to achieve glassy lips in five easy steps. Plus, read ‘til the very end to find out how to match the rest of your makeup to your glassy lips.
Let’s get right into it! Follow these steps to give your pout a glass-like look.
The drier your lips are, the more of a struggle it’ll be to turn them into glass. Before breaking out a lip color, slather on a hydrating lip balm.
We love lipsticks with satin or matte finishes, but now’s not the time! Opt for a lipstick with a super-shiny finish, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick, and swipe it on. As for which color to choose, it’s up to you! Have your pick from the 16 available shades—glassy lips can be any color you like.
To amp up the uber-glossy, glass-like effect you’re going for, add a layer of clear lip gloss over your lipstick. Try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Le Gloss in Naturally Nude.
Don’t be afraid to add a little shimmer into the mix. Using a lip-safe pigment, dab a bit of shimmer onto the center of your lips. Not only will they look extra glassy, but this little trick can also make your lips appear bigger.
To finish off your lips, use the pad of your finger and shade from the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette to add a touch of highlighter to your cupid’s bow.
Round out your makeup look with radiant skin, glossy lids, and highlighted cheeks.
To make sure your makeup look lasts, start with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Lock Makeup Primer. Apply a thin layer of primer, then it’s on to your next step.
Matte foundation is likely to clash with your glassy lip look. Instead, apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation, which has a radiant finish.
Brighten your under-eye area with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer. Dot the concealer on in the shape of an upside-down triangle, then blend out with a makeup blender.
Glassy makeup isn’t reserved for your lips. Give your eyes the same effect by swiping a clear eye gloss across your lids for an ultra-glassy look.
A couple of coats of mascara may not contribute to the glassiness of your makeup, but coating your lashes will help your look seem more complete. Try the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara to pump up the volume on your lashes.
Don’t let your cheeks fall flat. Blend the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Blush onto the apples of your cheeks to add a dose of color to your face.
You’re almost done! For a natural-looking, glow, dab the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer onto the highpoints of your face—i.e. above your cheekbones, under your arches, and down the bridge of your nose.
Next up, we’ve got another Korean skin care trend on deck. Here’s How to Try the Glass Skin Trend.
