The Last Minute Lip Gloss Makeover

Got a last minute date night, party with the girls or even a business meeting you’ve gotta look fresh and fabulous for? We’ve got just the trick, and we’re betting you’re already toting around a tube of the stuff in your bag. Lip Gloss!

That’s right. Grab your favorite tube of lip gloss (not the deep red, and not the bright pink – choose the one that looks most natural on your skin tone) and get to work on your cheeks, eyes and lips. For Brit’s dewy bohemian look, we used Estée Lauder Pure Gloss in Rosebud.

Here's a shot of Brit before our lip gloss makeover.

Start off by adding color to the apples of your cheeks with a tiny amount of your gloss. Blend the gloss into your skin using a tiny repetitive tapping motion with the tip of your finger, known in the beauty biz as stippling.

Next, place a small amount of gloss in the crease of your eye and use the same stippling motion to blend into the remaining part of your lid. For a little more depth in the crease, add a second layer of gloss.  

Lastly, apply the standard amount to your picture-perfect pout and pucker up! 

Go the extra mile by adding a quick braided headband and voila! You have a bright bohemian look that’s sure to boost the style score of any last minute rendezvous.
