Lip liners: love 'em or hate 'em? I've never been a huge fan, as alongside eyebrows (help is here), lip liner can be another grand faux pas. But sometimes, a little liner is necessary. The important thing to remember with liner is to be aware of the need to touch up. A ring around your mouth looking like you just ate a fudgesicle is never a pretty sight.
- When applying your liner, anchor your pinkie to your chin and work the liner upwards as if tracing a slight smile.
- If you find the liner looks too harsh, soften edges with a Q-tip or apply liner after your lipstick.
- Applying liner after your lipstick will have your liner fade off with your lipstick.
- If you're not a fan, then why use lip liner? Liner defines a fading lip, adds drama to a femme fatale color, and can prevent lipstick from bleeding. Not convinced? You can never go wrong au naturel and a smoky eye.
