Who isn’t attracted to shiny objects? Especially when it comes to high shine lips. The look is flirty, flattering, and truly easy to execute. Lips look fuller, and the technique works with every shade of lip color from nude to plum. Clinique Colour Pro Damian Garozzo shows how:
Step 1: Prep lips with a gentle scrub to smooth away any rough patches. Then dab on a moisturizing lip balm—it’s your first layer of shine and will help plump up your pout. We’re loving Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub & Lip Balm.
Step 2: Create a base of color with a lipstick that’s more than sheer, less than opaque—a happy medium with a touch of sheen. Here, Damian used Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Mightiest Maraschino.
Step 3: Swipe on a matching shade of long-wearing, high-pigment lip gloss such as Clinique Pop Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer. Concentrate the color on the center of your lips, to create noticeable dimension and volume. Layer a second coat—and get ready to turn heads.
