Lip-Liner Tips and Tricks
Lip Liner Tips & Tricks
My clients have always worn lip-liner - it defines the lips, keeps lipstick on longer and prevents bleeding. This generation's love affair with lip-liner comes from Kylie Jenner and her Instagram pics of a plump, lined pout.
Our Top Tips for Perfect Lip Liner Application:
Want your lipstick to last all day and not end up with a ring around your mouth? Fill in the entire lip with liner (not just the edges) before applying lipstick for a look that lasts. Liner sticks better on clean surfaces, so make sure you’re lips are clean and dry before applying.
Lip Liners work great as a barrier to keep lipstick from bleeding and can even be worn on its own as a lip color. Who needs to buy an expensive matte lipstick when you have a creamy matte lip liner?
Create your desired lip shape by drawing in the edges of the lip; the more pressure you apply, the more intense the effect will be. Fill in the entire lip with the liner for an all over color that can be worn alone or layered with lipsticks and gloss.
Make sure your lip liner is sharpened before you use it, this aids in creating more precise lines. Smile while your lining - this creates a smoother surface making lining easier.
If you want to make your lips appear fuller while still looking natural, use a slightly darker lip liner to define the bow and the middle of the bottom lip. Then, blend it with a lighter shade lip liner.
Not a fan of wearing lipstick? Don’t fret as you can still benefit from lip liner. Pick a nude shade that is close to your natural lip color and lightly trace the natural lip line to define the shape. Blend out the edges into the center of the lip with a brush and layer with a clear gloss or nude lipstick.
