#TrendingNow: 5 Glossy Makeup Looks That Are Subtle, Stunning, & Oh-So-Sexy


We love a good makeup trend, don’t we? Whether it’s a smokey eye or a bold lip or even the latest ‘clean girl aesthetic’, the variations of the different makeup trends just spices life up a whole lot more. One such trend to hit us hard this season has a lot to do with that healthy shine. The glossy makeup look trend has gotten everyone talking and with the rise of glass skin, we can assure you that this one is here to stay. The overall focus of this makeup look is based on getting that naturally dewy glow, across your face–so a lot of highilighters and shimmer-based products are involved. But, here’s the catch, while the look is shiny, it isn’t ultra glittery. You can either play around with colour in the same zone or keep things simple by sticking to nudes and neutrals. Keeping up with the trend, scroll down to see 5 glossy makeup looks you can try out on your next outing. 


Glossy Makeup Look


When you’re looking at doing a glossy makeup look, it’s important to keep your hand light. This means that you don’t want any harsh lines when it comes to your eye makeup. You even need to avoid heavier coverage, and keep your foundation more breathable. Take your pick from 5 of the chicest glossy makeup looks we’ve curated for you.

You can add a hint of eyeliner and mascara to tie in the look—but again remember thin lines are the way forward, so avoid those dramatic wings. Go with a nude lipstick for this one!
