3 Ways to Use Lip Gloss as Makeup

Lip gloss might be meant for adding shine to your pout. But it’s far from the only way to use it! In case of unexpected events, it’s always good to multi-task your makeup staples. “How?” you might wonder. Here are three useful ways!

Use your finger to dab a little lip gloss under your brow bone and cheek bones to instantly achieve a glowing, shiny highlighting effect. Keep in mind that a light high-shine or shimmering lip gloss is best suited to replace highlighter.

It’s easy to turn your gloss into a cream blush. Lightly press and tap the colour into the apples of your cheeks for a fresh-faced glow. But remember that less is more! With a lip gloss formula, it’s easy to go overboard - so be careful. Pick a pink or peachy coloured lip gloss for best effect.

Using shiny lip gloss on your lids is a fun hack that can create a trendy wet look. Simply use a finger to dab it on to your lids. Again, don’t apply too much, since the skin around your eyes is extra sensitive!
