3 Ways to Use Lip Balm (That Aren't On Your Lips)

Create a glowing complexion, groomed brows and smoked-out liner.

At Travis Taddeo's fall/winter show, the look was dewy, radiant skin with worn-in eyeliner. Lead makeup artist Grace Lee used one product—Maybelline New York Baby Lips SPF 20 Lip Moisturizing Balm in Quenched, a clear lip balm—in three different ways backstage.

Lip balm as highlighter

To create a radiant complexion, Grace perfected the skin with Maybelline New York Fit Me Foundation.

Then she massaged Maybelline New York Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector into the forehead, chin and apples of the cheeks for a dewy glow.

Here's where Baby Lips in Quenched comes in. She swiped it directly over the cheekbones, temples, chin and the bridge of the nose. “This is the most essential part if you want that super-fresh-faced glow," says Grace.

You can also use Baby Lips in Quenched on your brows. Grace swiped it over brushed-up brows for a 'post-shower' shine.

Lip balm over eyeliner

To create the lived-in eye look, Grace started with Maybelline New York EyeStudio Master Drama Cream Pencil Eyeliner in Midnight Master along the lower lash line.

Then she took Baby Lips in Quenched and rubbed it against a Q-Tip before dragging it along the eyeliner to smudge it/smoke it out. “The idea is for it look as though she just got out of the shower and there is a bit of eyeliner leftover; a little hardcore," says Grace.

To finish, she applied a light coat of Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara in Black.

And dabbed some BB cream on the lips to moisturize and neutralize them.
