5 Unexpected Ways To Use Your Lip Gloss

As on-the-go girls we’ve run into our fair share of beauty emergencies, including leaving everything but our trusty lip gloss at home. Luckily, the beauty essential can be used in a variety of ways (depending on the shade). From a brow tamer to a cheek stain, your tube of gloss is much more than meets the eye–or shall we say lip.

Get Glossy

Cheek Stain

Forgot to apply blush? Just swipe a pink gloss that doubles as a stain and blend on the apples of the cheeks for a lived-in flush.

Hair Tamer

We may not be able to control humidity but we can manage frizz. Apply a clear, non-sticky gloss to the ends of your hair to calm fly-aways.


For a covetable summer glow apply a champagne-colored lip gloss on the cheekbones for fresh dewy-looking skin.

Brow Gel

Keep unruly eyebrows in check by brushing them with a clear gloss and a spoolie brush.

Glossy Lids

Looking to spruce up your eye-shadow game? Apply a bronze-colored shimmer along the lash line or the entire lid for a fresh summer look.
