  2. What is most important when choosing a lip gloss?
    Reply

    Aside from clear or pigment, the most important part of lip gloss is the wand. These are ideal for full coverage with precision, especially for the corners of the mouth and edges of lips. With sheer lip gloss, touch ups can be done without a mirror.

  6. What about more natural looks?
    Reply

    For 2018, it’s less about the perfectly-lined lip and bold hues and more about enhancing the natural lip color. Go for lip gloss colors that offer a softer look just a couple of shades darker than the natural lip pigment.

    The Cupid’s bow part of the upper lip is the ideal place for extra color, especially for those going for fuller, juicier lips. One of the trends for 2018 is to apply one color of lipstick to both lips, a lighter shade to outline the Cupid’s bow, and cover all with a layer of lip gloss.
