A tasteful coating of lip gloss can transform any look just by giving your lips a little extra flair. With a kaleidoscope of colors available, there's something for everyone, and with these tips, you'll have the know-how to keep your makeup fresh and fun:
Lipstick and lip gloss, together at last
These beauty products are extremely versatile. For instance, if you consider the lipstick a base color, feel free to top it off with a gloss to give it a little pop. If you use a similar color, you'll be able to achieve a deeper effect, making the original pigment stand out with a splash of shimmer. Alternatively, try blending different shades to give your makeup bag a wider range of possibilities. A red lipstick with a pink gloss, for instance, will give you a playful, springtime look, whereas a purple base with a white shine will be perfect for a night on the town.
Blend glosses together
If you're hoping to forego lipsticks altogether, try blending a few different lip glosses. The beauty of these products, such as the Colorescience Sunforgettable Lip Shine SPF 35, is that they tend to work well together because of their creamy, liquid texture. Take your lip artistry to new heights by mixing colors together.
