Ultra-Shiny Lips

GET THE LOOK We've all been there. Our lips are freshly glossed when we leave the house but wind up dry and bare within minutes of our first latte. We found the trick to getting Elizabeth Banks's glazed pout without touching up every hour.

INSIDER TRICK Apply a long-wear lipstick, followed by a long-wear clear gloss on top. And drinking through a straw will help too
