The 5 Lip Gloss Commandments
We're obsessed with lip gloss. So after we narrowed down our top favorites, we reached out to the experts at Pure Cosmetics (which will be launching on Target.com this fall) to give us some how-to lip gloss tips to live by.
Thou shalt line and define: Your lip liner is the unsung hero of a flawless smile! Shape your pout with a clear liner like Pure Cosmetics Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil ($15). The smooth formula glides onto lips for a precise line without feathering.
Thou shalt find the perfect red lip gloss for you: Every woman should awaken her inner sex goddess and go red when she's looking for a little more attention.
Thou shalt always start from the middle: To avoid looking like a clown, always reapply your lipstick in the middle, and blend out toward the corners of your lips.
Thou shalt go neutral: Neutral lips are one of the most underrated and sexy lip gloss looks. Try a lip gloss that matches your skin tone for a soft, glam look.
Thou shalt let your hue be your lip hero: If you're trying a berry color for fall, avoid matching your blush to your lip gloss. Let your pout be the main attraction.
