Lipgloss was the does-it-all wonder product backstage at London Fashion Week. It was on hand for makeup artists as an eyebrow tamer, eyelid glosser, cheek highlighter and more. So, if your current gloss use only spans as far as your lips, now is the time to branch out. Here are five new ways to apply your staple lip shiner – it’s time to get glossy!
1) Tame Brows
No longer will eyebrows be an afterthought. Give them that much needed spruce-up and use lip gloss to shape and style. Do like the make up artists at Christopher Kane and brush up your brows, then paint on a super shiny gloss (try Bobbi Brown Crystal Lip Gloss, £15) with a lip brush.
2) Gloss Lids
Use NARS Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in Spring Break, £19, across the eyelid for a two-dimensional glow as seen backstage on models at David Koma. Also sporting this doe-eyed look were models at Huishan Zhang where a small amount of gloss was dotted in the tear duct to brighten up the eye.
3) Brighten Cheeks
Apply a touch of Maybelline’s Baby Lips, £2.99, mixed with Maybelline Colour Sensational Pearls, £6.99, on cheekbones for a shimmery, fresh faced shine as seen at Osman. You’ll feel like you’ve just stepped off the beach and into the office.
4) Plump Lips
Want that perfect plump pout like Rosie Huntington-Whitely? Pop a bit of Soap & Glory Super-Colour Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Gloss in Candy Gloss, £9, in the cupid’s bow to make your lips pop!
5) Highlight Eyes
Dab a touch of MAC Clear Lipglass, £14.50, on the brow bone as a highlight to open up your eyes and give you a fresh faced, bright-eyed finish.
