OK so the name does imply that lip gloss is meant for adding shine to the lips but, the next time you need a little pick-me-up or you've got an unexpected rendezvous with the guy you've been making eyes at in line for coffee, turn to your trusty friend: the lip gloss. It is a multi-tasking marvel, I tells ya.
On the cheeks: For a dewy look, simply dab a hint of gloss on your cheeks. It's an easy way to give yourself an instant fresh-faced glow.
On the lids: Have a pink lip gloss? Pat it on lids to create a subtle rosiness. A neutral one will look like the perfect ivory. Still not quite sure what to do with that black lip gloss? For a smoky, edgy effect, dot it on your outer lids and blend. Carine Roitfeld eat your heart out.
On the lips: If you want to be all conventional, I insist you still have some fun. Create your own custom colour by tapping an eyeshadow or blush onto your lips, then blend out it with a clear- or neutral-toned gloss. Remember that blue shadow, cringe-worthy as it might sound, actually provides subtle, teeth-whitening results.
