How to Use Lip Gloss?
1. Prep your lips: Ensure that your lips are clean and well-hydrated. You can gently exfoliate them with a lip scrub if needed and apply a lip balm to moisturize.
5. Spread the gloss: Press your lips together to distribute the gloss evenly. If needed, use your fingertips to blend and smooth the product across your lips.
3. Apply lip liner (optional): For more defined lips, you can consider using a lip liner that matches your natural lip color or the shade of the lip gloss. Outline your lips to create a guide for application.
4. Apply the lip gloss: Starting from the center of your bottom lip, apply the gloss evenly using the wand or your fingertips. Avoid applying too much product to prevent it from becoming sticky or goopy.
2. Choose the right shade: Select a lip gloss shade that complements your skin tone or the look you want to achieve. Lip glosses often come in clear, sheer, or tinted options.
