Lip Liner 101: Tips and Tricks for Perfectly Defined Lips

Start Reading

When selecting a lip liner, choose a hue that closely resembles your natural lip color or one that is slightly darker than your lipstick.

1) Choose the Right Shade

Before applying lip liner, gently exfoliate your lips to eliminate any dry or flaky skin. 

2) Prep Your Lips

Begin by delineating the double curve in the center of your upper lip, which is the cupid's bow.

3) Outline the Cupid's Bow

Trace along the outer margins of your lips, beginning at one corner and working your way to the other.

4) Define the Lip Contours

After outlining, you can use the same lip liner to color in your lips as a foundation for your lipstick.

5) Fill In the Lips

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.

6) Blending Technique

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.

7) Layering Technique

When using a bold or dark lipstick coloration, ensure that the lip liner complements or matches the lipstick color.

8) Lipstick Matching

Use a small, angled brush dipped in concealer or foundation to clean up any errors or sharpen the edges after applying lip liner.

9) Clean-Up

Lip liner is a versatile makeup tool, so don't be afraid to experiment with various colors and techniques.

10) Experiment and Have Fun
