5 Genius Lip Liner Tips You Need To Master Now!

Lip liner is one of those ubiquitous beauty products that we always seem to have to lie on top of our bedroom vanities or taking up prime real estate inside our makeup bags. We know that it works great as a barrier to keep lipstick from bleeding and that it can even be worn on its own as a lip color. But we haven’t been convinced to make lip liner a part of our daily routine, until now. Below are 12 hacks that will change your life for the better.

1. Apply lipstick first, and then add a liner. You’ll see exactly where you’ll need to line. And when your lipstick starts to fade away, it fades away with your liner. That way you’re not left with a ring around your lips.

2. For more intensity, start with your liner. Create the desired 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.

3. Don’t sharpen too much. I like the pencil to be a little dull so that it doesn’t create too severe of a line and becomes blended inside the lips.

4. For more intensity, start with your liner. Create the desired 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.

5. Go clear for a long-lasting finish. If you don’t like the look or idea of a liner, but still want your lipstick/gloss to stay in place, opt for a clear, mattifying pencil that will keep your makeup in place without adding extra color.
