After years of puckers covered in liquid matte lipsticks that are so matte, it looks like they will crack, lips now look soft, supple and shiny. Here are some tips on how to wear gloss with looking like you ate something greasy for lunch:
1. Apply a non-shiny lip balm and follow with colored gloss at the center of your lower lip.
2. Apply berry-colored lip tint and allow it to dry. Then coat your lips with balm so they look juicy, not crusty.
3. Find a metallic lipstick and apply it full on. For precision, use a lip brush to apply.
4. Work that lewk!
