Anyone who wore Lancome Juicy Tubes in the early 2000s knows applying it meant you also had to wear your hair up that day—otherwise, you'd spend the entire day unsticking strands from your lips, where it would inevitably land with one gust of wind. The look was far from subtle, especially because I wore it with dark eye makeup and matte foundation. Needless to say, I was relieved when the trend finally ran its course. In the past few months however, it's returned. But this time, with better formulas and smarter makeup. Instead of adding a glossy lip to an otherwise matte face, it's all about creating a nostalgic but cohesive dewy look. I recently pulled some of my favorite inspiration images on Pinterest and Instagram, and noticed some key similarities. Every look I was drawn to created an overall "natural" dewy look, complete with hydrating serums and foundations, a shimmery lid, and illuminated cheekbones. Here's the inspiration I'll be pulling from next time I wear a glossy lip, as well as my favorite gloss options:
P.S., If you're looking for a gloss to start with, our entire team is obsessed with Fenty's Gloss Bom in 'Fenty Glow - Shimmering Rose Nude.' Anne even wore it on her wedding day!
