Lip gloss: how the professionals do it

1.?Apply lip gloss only to the center of your lips

When applied correctly, lip gloss will make your lips appear fuller, plumper, and more reflective—without impairing the contours. To get it right, cover the center part of your bottom lip with a coat of gloss over your lipstick. If you prefer matte or creamy textures, only apply the gloss lightly in the center.?
2.?Lip liner and gloss
Going for natural, unadorned colors but still want to keep those defined contours? Try lip liner and gloss in combination. First, trace the contours of your lips with a lip liner to stop the colors from bleeding out onto your cheeks. Then, apply the gloss. When you preserve the clean lines, the gloss will highlight and define the contours of your lips.?

3.?Lipstick on top of gloss for radiant accents
Start by glossing your lips completely. Then, apply a lipstick with a defined color to the center of the lips. This technique will help those colors radiate naturally from the center with a subtle shine of glassy texture underneath.
