A Complete Guide to Fall 2019 Makeup Looks - Look 7

This is the final post in my Fall 2019 Makeup Guide.  Perfect for evening, glossy lips have replaced the matte lip trend. The good news is, you can simply top your favorite matte liquid lip with a lip gloss to update your look. Playing with color combinations, or just adding a slick of clear shine makes this look easy for anyone to wear. 

Here is how to get Look 7:

The Trend: Glossy Lips

Depending on the color, and your personal style, glossy lips can be worn day or night. However, this trend is really about emphasizing the lips and adding extra glamour to evening looks. Keep foundation dewy and natural, brows full, and eye makeup to a minimum to get the full impact of this trend. A little eyeliner and mascara is fine, but your lips should be the star. Gloss comes in a number of formulas, textures, colors and price points.  It has the ability to make lips look more voluminous, and sexy!

Some of the lip glosses that I love (pictured above) are: Alexis Vogel Luminous Gloss, Milani Amore Shine Liquid Lip Color, Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster SPF 15 Lip Gloss, Nuance Salma Hayek Ultra Shine Lip Gloss (my favorite clear), Jordana Cosmic Glow (try Chromatic Peach), and my personal favorite - Jeffree Star Cosmetics The Gloss.

One way to wear this trend that is especially popular this season is opting for a dark glossy lip. To keep your pout looking pristine, line your lips with a lip liner close to your natural lip color (I used Trick from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics).  You can use the pencil to correct any unevenness or cheat a fuller lip. Fill in your lips with the pencil to create a base.  Top with a liquid lipstick in a terracotta, brick or a classic red color. I used Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in Gingerbread Man in the photo below. After your liquid lipstick has dried completely, top with your favorite gloss.  Start in the center of the bottom lip, spreading it out to the corners of your mouth, and press your lips together to coat your top lips. Apply a little extra to the top lip to accent the shape of your lips. I used Jeffree Star Cosmetics The Gloss in Wet Peach below. With so many different formulas on the market, it is important to make sure your liquid lipstick and gloss formulas are compatible. For example, a lip oil may break down the liquid lipstick.  I like The Gloss from Jeffree Star Cosmetics because they were designed specifically to work over liquid lipstick and there are a variety of colors and finishes to choose from. Layering a sheer, shimmery peach over a dark terracotta creates a unique and stunning lip combination that instantly makes your look appear more festive.  I love this type of look for holiday parties.  

If dark lip colors make you uncomfortable, simply layer a gloss over your usual lipstick hue. I feel like matte lips have been popular for so long, that I had to rediscover my love for gloss. If you prefer one product that does it all, try Milani Amore Shine Liquid Lipstick. This is a one and done product that works like traditional liquid lipstick, but has a high-gloss finish. If you like something custom, layer a couple of them together to create your own unique color. Below I combined the colors Addiction and Delight for a shiny nude lip.  To take the gloss to the next level, I applied a little bit of Jeffree Star The Gloss in Legends Only (creamy nude) to the center of my lips.
