How to Rock Face Gloss Without Looking Like a Sweaty Mess
Summer is synonymous with sun-kissed, luminous skin. Nobody wants to be matte when it's hot outside! But most of the time, when people think of luminous or glowing, they end up with more of a shiny, shimmery look created with a powder or cream highlighter. This year, though, it's all about looking super glossy. It might sound weird, but giving off the appearance of wet, glistening skin is taking over. The key product is a face gloss, and it's still a form of highlighting, but the formulas used are transparent, with no shimmer or pigment in them, which makes them universal to wear. Try it over naked skin, or dab it on top of your foundation.
You might be thinking, "Well, I can go outside and sweat — isn't that exactly the same?" In short, no. (Duh.) You are able to control where you're dewing it (I couldn't resist a pun!) by applying it on areas like your temples, cheekbones, cupid's bow, and eyelids. While Instagram is filled with flat matte (yet gorgeous) makeup, this look takes it 180 degrees away.
