GLOSS ALERT! In case you haven’t noticed, glossy makeup is a thing, and we just can’t get enough of it. Risqué gloss is all you need to go from drab to fab in a hot minute. So, let’s take a moment to bid ciaos to blotting papers and pressed powders. Gloss, gloss baby! Because it just looks so damn good. Join us in achieving the most imitated look in beauty town.

Here’s everything you needed to know about glow makeup!

Dope Liddies
Considering the sultry weather all around, glossy lids can sometimes turn their back on us. Here’s what’s going to help. To rock this baby, pull out the L.A. Girl Eye Lux Mesmerizing Eyeshadow. Go for the edgy purple from Glamorize and the mustard yellow from Dramatize pallet. Now mix each shade up with a swish of Kay Beauty MaeStrobe Lip Topper - Show Stopper Focus the product above the creases of your lid line to get that faint glow, so that it doesn’t migrate downwards. Oh, and if you have oily skin, skip the lip gloss bit and leave a small break open along the crease. Finish this look with the power of lip balm. Dab on the Forest Essentials Luscious Lip Balm - Sugared Rose Petalto get that extra-sexy glossy finesse!
Sheer Smack
First thing’s first. To create high-impact glossy lips, you need to switch your lip liner into your lipstick. Apply a dime-sized amount of Provoc Semi-Permanent Gel Lip Liner Filler-Heat Of The Momentto your hand and use the Nykaa BlendMaster Lip Oval Brush to mix this with a tiny bit of the Ruby's Organics Tinted Lip Balm - Cinnamon Oil to get that beautiful creamy texture. To ensure your look doesn’t bleed outside your lip line, go right back to your lip liner and top it up with elegant strokes for that extra bit of insurance. If you apply too much, you’re going to lose that stunning sheer you worked on. #MajorGlossQueenVibes.
Cream Cheeks
Here’s a little something. ‘Cream Cheeks’ aka ‘Sheen Highlighting’ is so gorgois yet so tricky to achieve if not executed right. To begin with, you don’t want to look too OTT with a caked-on coverage (a complete no, no). Skip your concealer for this one, and slap on the Nykaa SKINgenius Foundation Stick for an intelligent coverage. Coming to the cheeks, pull out the NYX Professional Makeup Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator and apply this beautiful formula on the top of your cheekbones in upward strokes. To go full throttle, aim for your temple section, bridge of your nose and along your brow bone. Yummy cream cheeks? Mastered.
First Base
To create the perfect foundation for this look you need to lay down a super reliable base. For this you need to listen real close to your skin type. Fancy packaging and pretty scented formulas ain’t going to get the job done. Start with a good cleanse; oily skin beauties should opt for a good clay mask like the Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask 2X. If you have parched skin, you will love the instant plumping that The Face Shop Real Nature Shea Butter Face Mask promises. Then moisturize. Squeeze a tiny blot of The Face Shop White Seed Brightening Lotion and massage it onto your face. Your skin will thank you!
