#ELLEbeauty: Go glossy with this season’s hottest trend
Glimmer, glisten and glint!
Lip gloss returns, but not as you remember it. As gloss makes a big comeback, update your make-up mandate with dreamy finishes and sparkly hints.
Enlist metallic or shimmer eyeshadow to maximise the wet look. Then gently tap clear gloss—lip balm works well too—on top. Leave a break at the crease to stay away from any sticky (lid) situations.

There’s nothing like too much shine. Dip into the same lip gloss for a dazzling pout, then create a translucent version for the eyes. Keep it balanced with a grease-free T-zone.

Update your kohl-lined eyes with a mirror-like sheen. Coat the top lid with sheer gloss, and add a touch of highlighter on the inner corner of the eyes. Fresh and easy.

The nourishing, creamy modern day incarnations of lip gloss make it less threatening to wear a full-on shiny mouth. Choose bold hues for an eye-catching look.

Our new favourite way to wear blush: creamy, high on the cheekbone and topped with shimmer. Feel free to dab any leftover colour on your eyelids.
