We have all adored celebrities and models when we see them sporting a particular lip colour. And sometimes, we buy lipsticks with the expectation of looking like them. But when we use it, our lipstick tends to fade or bleed. Have you ever wondered why this happens? It is because we forget an essential product we should use with lipstick, i.e. Lip liner. Lip liners were quite popular during the 90s, and then we thought they died out because they were not as obvious in the celebrity lip makeup looks. However, models and celebrities continued using lip liner makeup. They started using ones that either matched their skin tone or lipstick colour. All those models that you follow on Instagram? Well, they use lip liner lipsticks to give them that 10/10 look.
A lip liner gives you a sharp lip look and adds volume to your lips, making them look more plump. It also makes your lipstick last longer. The technique of using lip liner differs depending on your lips and product.
Before buying the lip liner, you should know how to apply the lip liner correctly.
- Apply lip gloss or scrub so the liner goes on smoothly.
- Choose a lip liner two or three shades deeper than the lipstick.
- Before applying, make sure the tip is sharp and fresh. Start from the centre part of your upper lip and continue to follow the natural lip line to the outer corners.
- After you line your upper lip, follow the same step for your bottom lips.
- Then put some lipstick across your bottom and upper lips and smoothly smudge them together. Then take a close look at your lip liner and blend it into lipstick with your fingertips or lip brush.
