Once the model’s look was complete, Kaliardos added just a touch of lip gloss to the center of the lips, right where the top and bottom lip meet. This simple addition prevents lips from looking Sahara desert–dry. The difference is subtle, but it helps the lips look fresh and more modern. Bonus: The lip gloss trick prevents your lips from sticking together. You know when a matte lipstick is so matte it looks like a layer of paint on your lips, and it feels almost like you're pulling your lips apart when you open your mouth? Not our favorite feeling either. A non-tacky lip gloss like Nars's Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil ($26) or a lip balm right where your top and bottom lips meet saves you from that dreaded feeling. Genius.
