We love the high gloss trend for eyes, skin and hair but our favorite way to bring glamorous shine into your beauty look for a night out is luxe, glossed-up lipstick paired with with a gorgeous, hydrated complexion. Today Joey Maalouf demonstrates two chic ways to make a statement with lustrous lipstick this holiday season using Team Zoe staffer Kendall Cohan as his model and muse!
Dark & Vampy
Dark, vampy lipstick never goes out of style but it's definitely having a moment in the spotlight this winter with every brand offering up their own almost-black or deep purple shade. We love the look with a white dress and opulent accessories for a sexy contrast.
"Exfoliate lips to create a flawless base then line them with a basic pencil. This will ensure lipstick looks even, doesn't bleed and stays on all night."
Apply a little bit of Vaseline on top of an already glossy lipstick for extra shine. Vaseline 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly, $5; Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in Satin Blackcurrent, $20.
Style It With
Light & Luxe
If you're planning to wear an already-edgy or dark-color look, opt for a high shine lipstick in a blush nude color. The luxe, feminine shade will elevate the ensemble, and is especially practical for dinner parties when you'll be eating and drinking during the event.
Joey's Tip: "With a lighter color lipstick you can afford to extend the liner a little bit beyond the natural line for an extra full look. For added drama finish with major black lashes."
