How to Get Dewy Glossy Lips


They`re simpler than a smoky eye, don`t require an airbrush, and work on all skin tones and types. I`m talking about dewy, glossy lips sweet, subtly sexy, and quick and easy to do. They can balance out a dramatic eye, look good in any light, and work for any woman at every age.

Here`s what you need to do to achieve delectably dewy, gorgeously gloss lips.

Clean Them

You need perfectly smooth lips to master this look. Eliminate flakes with a gentle lip scrub like Korres Lemon Lip Scrub or Lush Bubble Gum Lip Scrub. You can even use a wet washcloth to gently pat and rub your lips.

Soften Them

Next, use a balm like Burt`s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm or L`Occitane Shea Butter Lip Balm Stick to condition and hydrate your lips. Of course, Vaseline always works, and if you`re on the run and desperate, a quick dab of hand lotion or moisturizer will even do the job. And many makeup artists swear by Blistex

Prime Them

After you`ve conditioned and moisturized your lips, it`s time to prime your lips to establish a smooth surface and clean canvas. Urban Decay Lip Primer and Napoleon Perdis` Auto Pilot Lip Primer help lip color stay on. Swipe either on before you move on to your lip color.

Color Them

For a glossy finish, appearance, look for a shimmering lip gloss or a creamy, conditioning lipstick with medium coverage and reflective shimmer Bobbi Brown, MAC, Cover Girl, Urban Decay and Dior all have an almost limitless selection of both. Choose a gloss or lipstick in a shade close to your natural lip color, of course. Avoid ultra shiny clear and bubblegum pink glosses to avoid blow-up doll lips. If you`re looking for an even more more subdued, next-to-nothing glow, try a colored balm such as Clinique`s Chubby Stick, Rodin`s Olio Russo or Smith`s Rosebud Minted Rose Lip Balm.

You`re done!
