Lip liner is the one product when applied incorrectly makes it obvious that you are wearing makeup. Overdrawn liner looks cheap and harsh while subtle liner makes your lips fuller, younger, and more defined. Here are some beauty rules.
1. Liner should never be darker than your lipstick.
Liner should always be one shade darker than your natural lip color, or a shade darker or lighter than your gloss or stick of choice. The safest bet is a neutral, natural liner.
Moist, rounded tips, rather than freshly sharpened points, offer the prettiest definition. Sharpen your lip pencil, then running it back and forth over your hand to dull or blunt the point.
3. Do not overdraw your lip lines.
In order to enhance, but not excessively exaggerate your pucker, trace your natural lip line, or draw ever so slightly above it if you want that kylie jenner look.
4. Play up your Cupid’s Bow.
The Cupid’s Bow is that sexy little peak in the middle of your top lip.
Lip liner can multi-task as both a definer and a matte color for your lips. The matte texture is trendy right now and longer lasting than your average gloss.
Remember, after outlining the lip liner blend it out.
