    How to get plump lips without having to go through Botox? The answer lies in a product long shunned by beauty aficionados, gloss, one of the (many) vestiges of the 1990s and 2000s. If new generations appreciate it for its ability to offer a ‘naturally’ luscious mouth , however, they seem to regret its lack of outfit. A problem that a world-renowned brand has tackled head on, revealing the ultimate tip for maintaining voluminous lips all day long.

    If Botox has become essential in recent years, whether to reduce wrinkles or add more volume to their lips, many women are also looking to adopt a more natural makeup routine. The idea is simple: it is about reproducing the effects of botulinum toxin without overdoing it – and without these effects lasting over time. A desire which allowed gloss, which had fallen into oblivion at the end of the 2000s, to make a remarkable return to the forefront – and more precisely on social networks. The proof is that it has already generated several hundred million publications on the social network TikTok, and is the subject of a host of trends, tips and tutorials. The only downside: the gloss fades quickly, in just a few hours, and requires a multitude of applications throughout the day.

    Well, that was before! A famous cosmetics brand recently unveiled a beauty gesture that would not only accentuate the effects of gloss, but also make it last throughout the day. And it is to Fenty Beauty, the brand of the singer Rihanna, that we owe this tip which has become viral. Its code name: ‘double glossing’. As its name implies, it involves applying not one, but two textures to your lips to make them even more voluminous – and longer. Viewed more than 150,000 times, the video published by Fenty Beauty was the subject of numerous publications, whether from ordinary users or world-renowned influencers like Sarah Wolak and Mikayla Nogueira, who in turn were viewed millions of times .

    ‘Double glossing’ does not require any particular technique or know-how. However, you must have a lip oil and a gloss, the idea being to apply the first to deeply nourish the lips and create a sort of barrier, then the second to make them more shiny with a bulky. That’s it ! Admittedly, many content creators were skeptical when they discovered this tip, then adopted it immediately after testing it.

    This is not the first time that such a tip has gone viral on the Chinese social network. Social users even seem to be passionate about all the techniques that allow you to obtain luscious lips without resorting to aesthetic medicine. The proof with the ‘lip combo’, a tip based on the use of a lip pencil and a gloss, the ‘lip liner’ based on the exclusive use of a lip pencil, or even the ‘ honey lips’ for a glossy and delicious mouth.
