How to Get Glossy Lips How to Get Glossy Lips How to Get Glossy Lips

If you’ve been keeping up with the beauty trends that grace the runways (and your social media feeds), you’ve probably noticed the progression of the “wet” beauty trend. First came wet hair, then glossy eyelids, and now the glossy lip look is here to complete this totally saturated style. While you may want to pick and choose which trend you wear when, rather than sporting all of them at once, there’s no denying that looking like you’re fresh from the shower is seriously en vogue. We’ve already taught you how to translate the trend to your hairstyle and eye makeup, which means, obviously, we can’t not share how to get glossy lips, too. Hint, hint: The trick is in your lip product pick. There’s no need to layer lots of makeup; it’s all about the finish of your lip color and a few application techniques. Keep reading to find out how to get gorgeous glossy lips.

OUR BEST GLOSSY LIP PRODUCTS

Achieving glossy lips doesn’t have to be a struggle. In fact, it shouldn’t even require more than a minute or two of your time. Once you have a glossy lip product with an extreme-shine finish in your arsenal, most of the work is already done. Take your pick from our best glossy lip products, below.

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Plump and Shine Lipstick, Sheer Lipstick: For a glossy lip that packs some extra punch, look no further than this plumping lipstick! The hydrating formula delivers lasting shine, all-day moisture, and a cooling, tingling feel. Your lips will appear soft, glossy, and visibly plumped, with a subtle flush of color.

HOW TO GET GLOSSY LIPS

Once you have your product selection, follow these (super-simple) application tips to get the glossy lip look you so desire.

GLOSSY LIP TIP #1: PRIME YOUR LIPS

If you want this look to last—which why wouldn’t you—you’ll want to use a lip primer. Apply a primer before you start reaching for your lip product, and you’ll be blessed with better application and staying power. Win, win.

GLOSSY LIP TIP #2: SKIP LIP LINER

This is really more of an anti-step. One of the best things about a super-glossy lip is that it doesn’t have to be perfectly precise. That means you can skip using lip liner, so there’s no need for an extra step.

GLOSSY LIP TIP #3: HIGHLIGHT YOUR CUPID’S BOW

To take your glossy lip up a notch and really draw the eye to your pout, apply a highlighter to your cupid’s bow. Pop the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Shimmerista Highlighting Powder into place to do just that.

GLOSSY LIP TIP #4: APPLY IT THE RIGHT WAY

Start in the center of your upper lip, working toward the outer edges of your lips and following the contour of your mouth until your lips are completely covered with glossy lipstick. And that’s it. See, told you it was easy!
