Reminiscing aside, lip gloss is all grown up now and can be paired with any makeup look. From subtle nude hues to look-at-me, saturated shades, we show you how to wear lip gloss at home, work and out and about.
Everyday PrettinessWhether you’re spending the day inside with friends or running errands around town, a swipe of a brightening lip gloss, a coat or two of mascara and a pop of blush on your cheeks are all you need on your face. Our go-to formula for days like these? NYX Professional Makeup Intense Butter Gloss in Napoleon. The gorgeous pinky-coral hue instantly brightens up your complexion.
Office AllureFor days where you want to impress clients, opt for a red shade in a long-lasting formula. Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer in Classic is a lovely candy-apple red that lasts. The lacquered shine finish makes a welcome change from dried-out, matte formulas. If you’re more of a nude-lip kinda gal, you’ll love the colour Charmer in the range.
The options are endless here, feel free to play around with any shade or formula that tickles your fancy. Just bear in mind that lip gloss isn’t ideal for kissing so if you are planning on locking lips with your boo, we recommend you either slick on a yummy-tasting version, such as NYX Professional Makeup Intense Butter Gloss (any shade), or a shiny stain, such as Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain Lip Color, for a similar effect but with kiss-proof capacity. We adore the shade Magenta Amplifier for a look-at-me lip.
So instead of yearning for the days that were, embrace the you right now and the makeup products available – there to add a new spring to your step.
