In honor of Glossier rereleasing their Black Tie set lipgloss today, I’m going to show you three fun ways to wear clear lipgloss! In my previous review, you guys know I thought that the clear gloss was a tad bit basic. It’s a late 90s/early 2000s trend that can feel a little lackluster at times. So I took it upon myself to experiment with the gloss and find more ways to wear it! So whether you’re just venturing into the gloss game or are really for some hardcore beauty looks, I’ve got something for you. Let’s get started!
The Jelly Sandwich Style
This gloss style is the one that has been so popular (or unpopular based on your taste) in the past. Just LAYER. IT. ON! The effect is a perfectly 3D glassy look on your lips with mega shine! This is a great way to add some editorial level beauty an everyday makeup look!
This gloss style can be a tad bit more advanced so proceed with caution. First, I applied 1-2 layers of the lipgloss to my lips as normal. Then, I took the pointed Shader brush from Julep and NYX’s Face and Body cosmetic glitter in Crystal and applied it as a lip liner! You can leave it that way, or you can add more glitter as you wish. I did a gradient towards the center of my lips so it was more opaque the close to my lip line I got. Then, just clean up the edges with a clean lip liner and some tape!
Layered Over Another Color
This look is pretty simple! Just find another lip color that you love and isn’t already glossy, and apply the gloss over the top! Matte shades are good for this because it’s likely that the gloss won’t mix with the color already on your lips since it’s dry. I layered the gloss over Mac Cosmetic’s Matte Royal!
