Lip liner is such a controversial subject. Applied incorrectly it can look really dated and sometimes even clownish.
(Please don’t ever wear it like this! No offense to our lovely clip-art model)
However, when applied correctly it can not only help keep your lip stick neat and prevent any bleeding or feathering, but it can also help define your lips and even provide a contouring effect.
We’ve all had that morning – you leave the house with your fabulous lip color, so shiny and vibrant, when a sudden breeze lifts a wayward curl and directly imbeds it in to your lip gloss. By the time you’ve reached up to remove it your hair, it has efficiently managed to leave cherry red streaks across your chin and cheeks. Not very attractive, even if you are the Joker. Or perhaps you’ve felt the frustration of trying to perfect your cupids bow (the curve of your upper lip) only to never get both sides even. Lip liner can help in both of these scenarios, not only does it greatly improve the longevity or staying power of your lip stick by giving it something to “stick” to, but it also allows you so much more precision – sloppy lipstick is never okay.
Let me show you how in four simple steps!
I used Avon Glimmerstick Lip Liner in True Red and Avon Irresistably Sexy Lipgloss in Super Red (similar here). Both of these can be found on super sale, my favorite kind!
