The must-have of all girls is the perfect lip gloss! It is a real must-have to give your make-up look an extra touch. Lip gloss comes in all types and colors, from glossy to good care. Do you want to know more about lip gloss? The most important questions about lip gloss are discussed below;)
A lip gloss falls under the category of lip make-up. It looks a bit like lipstick, but it is slightly thinner. It is a liquid substance that you apply with a brush. Lip gloss is a thin layer that often gives a shiny effect on your lips. That is why it is also worn over the lipstick. Lip gloss is available in a color or transparent. Some lip glosses also have a taste or a nice scent. Many girls wear lip gloss for that delicious shiny look for a party, for example. Lip gloss is often not only beautiful, but can also have a nourishing effect on your lips. Some lip glosses have the same structure as a balm, but also make your lips shine. A lip gloss also gives your lips a mega beautiful volume, a real must-have!
In the make-up world we distinguish a number of lip glosses. We have listed them for you:
Transparent lip gloss
This type of gloss is perfect for you if you really want to go for a beautiful shine. A water-like gloss gives a natural glow. Really an addition to your every day look! Example of a transparent lip gloss: Bourjois 3D Effect Transparent Lip Gloss .
Colorful lip gloss
This is the little sister of the lipstick. It gives about the same effect and is perfect for a light make-up look. An example is the Bourjous 3D Effect Framboise Magnific Lipgloss .
Volumizing lip gloss
There are lip glosses that give your lips more volume. Like the Plump Up The Volume from Pouty Lipzz, these give your lips a better contour and make your lips look fuller.
Mattifying lip gloss
For example, you can smear this lip gloss over the lipstick for a satin, matte finish. This is how the Bourjois Fabuleux Lip Transformer works on any lipstick and transforms into a matte effect.
Glitter lip gloss
This gives a mega cheerful effect! These glosses ensure that your lips will shine completely. Some lip glosses also have coarser glitter in them, so you can really see the glitter on your lip. This type of lip gloss is often also used over the lipstick, so that the lip look gets an extra beautiful effect. Glitter lip gloss is really a must have for that one fun party!
A lip gloss is of course the most beautiful if it matches the color of your skin. With a lip gloss you are of course less likely to go wrong with this because it has less color, but it can still be nice to know. Which lip gloss color suits you depends on the undertones of your skin:
The cool undertone
Does your skin have a cool undertone? Then it is best to choose a lip gloss with a purple undertone. If you are more of the nude shades, try choosing as pink a shade as possible for a beautiful lip look!
The warm undertone
Do you have a warm undertone? Try to go for a slightly warmer lip gloss. A peach nude is really a very suitable choice for this!
The neutral undertone
Is your undertone a bit more neutral? Then you can actually have any color lip gloss, lucky you! Always look at the color of your own lips, for example with dark lips also go for a dark lip gloss. That way you always look your best!
They can both give a nice color to your lips, but of course there are also differences! One of the biggest differences is that lipstick gives a much more intense color and stays better. Lip gloss, on the other hand, gives much more volume and shine to your lips. Lip gloss often also has more nourishing ingredients.
Lip care is super important for a beautiful lip look.An example of good care for your lips is a lip scrub. This removes the dead skin cells and makes your lips completely soft again. A lip scrub is super easy to make yourself with a little sugar and some coconut oil. It is also very important to moisturize your lips. You can of course do this with a lip balm, but petroleum jelly is also suitable for this. For example, if you do this every day before going to sleep, soft, well-groomed lips are almost inevitable! What many people don't know is that your lips are also very sensitive to extremely cold and hot weather. Therefore, try to take good care of your lips if you are going to walk in the snow for a day. In the summer or, for example, during your winter sports, you can opt for a special lip balm with sunscreen extracts in it. These ensure that your lips do not get burned by the sun. This way your lips will always be well cared for!
Plumper lips are sometimes something we all naturally want. Fortunately, there are also tricks for this so that you get the most beautiful botox-free lips!
The best trick for fuller lips is a lip liner. Lip liner is actually a pencil in the same color as your lipstick, which you can apply to the edges of the lip. By applying this in a natural way just above your own lip edge, you can ensure that your lips get just a little more volume. Another tip is to buy a super shiny lip gloss. Because of the shine that this gloss leaves behind, your lips look really shiny and they really get a volume boost! If you want fuller lips, try to avoid dark lipstick. This can cause your own lip color to fall into the dark color so that your lips only look thinner, and you want to prevent this of course!
