Exfoliate Your Lips
Lip gloss is a great way to give your lips a bit of shine and moisture. Often, people assume that applying lip gloss is as easy as pulling off the cap and swiping it across the lips. However, there are some steps you should take before applying the gloss.
Before you apply any type of lip product, it's best to exfoliate your lips first. This will remove dead skin cells and make them softer and smoother, so they don't interfere with the application of the gloss. You can also use a scrub or washcloth with some water to exfoliate your lips.
Moisturize With Lip BalmA good lip balm is an essential part of any beauty routine. Not only does it keep your lips from getting chapped, but it also helps smooth the surface of your lips so that the gloss goes on evenly and looks natural. Moisturizing will also keep your lips from drying out and flaking while you’re wearing the lip gloss.
Line Your Lips Lightly With Liner Matching Your LipsThe first thing you need to do when putting on lip gloss is to line your lips with liner. You can use a pencil or lipstick, but if you're using something creamy like lipstick or a cream liner, make sure you wipe away any excess product, so it doesn't end up looking messy on your lips later on.
Different Kinds Of Lip Gloss
There are a few different kinds of lip gloss that you can wear and will look amazing. It all depends on what base you want your lip gloss to be made with. The first is wax based, which is typically a thicker consistency of lip gloss and often more opaque than other lip glosses. These versions of lip gloss also come in a variety of colors which make them very popular for anyone who enjoys bolder colors on their lips because they tend to hold up better when it comes to eating and drinking.
Lanolin-based lip glosses are very similar to wax-based in that they are thicker and opaque. However, the lanolin adds moisture to the lip gloss. If you have dry lips or live in a dry climate, this may be the best lip gloss you can use. Last but not least, there is petroleum jelly-based lip gloss.
This lip gloss is made basically out of vaseline. It’s a great lip gloss if your lips are dry or cracked. Petroleum jelly-based lip gloss is excellent for hydrating your lips and keeping them that way.
Apply Your Lip Gloss
Make sure your lips are clean and dry, and find your perfect color. When applying lip gloss, there are a couple of ways you can do it. The first is to apply it using a small lip brush. This way, when applying, you have total and complete control over where the lip gloss lands.
The next way is with a lip gloss applicator. This way is useful because you will not waste any products while applying it. Clean up after applying your lip gloss is also quick and easy. Lastly, you can use your finger to apply your lip gloss. This is probably the least sanitary way to apply your lip gloss but also the fastest way, especially when you’re on the go.
