When selecting a lip liner, choose a hue that closely resembles your natural lip color or one that is slightly darker than your lipstick.
Before applying lip liner, gently exfoliate your lips to eliminate any dry or flaky skin.
Begin by delineating the double curve in the center of your upper lip, which is the cupid's bow.
Trace along the outer margins of your lips, beginning at one corner and working your way to the other.
After outlining, you can use the same lip liner to color in your lips as a foundation for your lipstick.
To soften lip liner and create a seamless transition with lipstick, use a lip brush or your fingertip to blend the liner towards the center of your lips.
If you want the color to be more intense or to last longer, layer your lip liner by entirely filling in your lips with liner before applying lipstick.
When using a bold or dark lipstick coloration, ensure that the lip liner complements or matches the lipstick color.
Use a small, angled brush dipped in concealer or foundation to clean up any errors or sharpen the edges after applying lip liner.
Lip liner is a versatile makeup tool, so don't be afraid to experiment with various colors and techniques.
