To create wet-look hair, wash and squeeze the excess water from your locks. Next, load in a flake-free gel from the root to mid-shaft. We like R+CO Wall Street Strong Hold Gel, which creates a shiny, sleek look without the crunch. To avoid hard, stiff hair, you can also try applying a leave-in conditioner on top. Finally, run a wide-tooth comb through your hair to ensure that each individual strand is covered.
Eye gloss can be worn alone, or over an eyeshadow for a vinyl effect. To apply, simply tap the product onto the middle of your lid, and gently rub it back and forth. You can smudge a little under your brow bone, on the inner corner of your eye, or along your lower lash line, too. Applying the product with your fingers will give you a cool, lived-in feel. One thing about eye gloss? Much like a lipgloss, it will crease, but embrace is: there’s something super sexy about a disheveled-looking, glossy eye. Pro tip: If you plan on wearing mascara, always apply it first. Choose a waterproof formula, too—the gloss can mix with your lashes and cause smudging.
Want that post-workout glisten without breaking a sweat? Enter CLE’s Essence Moonlighter Cushion. While most highlighters have a pearly or metallic finish, this K-Beauty-inspired formula gives skin a hyper-dewy finish that looks wet. To apply, dab a small amount on the high points of your face like the top of your cheekbones, brow bones, and your cupid's bow. You can also apply some onto the center of your lids, along your brow bones, and in the inner corners of your eyes.
