#LipGoals: How To Apply Lip Liner In 3 Easy Steps For Super Results!

05/19/2021

Do you have a drawer full of lip liners but rarely use them?

Stop ignoring those lip liners!

Lining your lips gives you a clean, polished look AND helps keep your lipstick and lip gloss ON YOUR LIPS- not all around your mouth! 

The secret to applying lip liner is knowing your “lip goals.”  

#LipGoals? 

This is an easy goal to set! Just ask yourself, "How do I want my lipstick to look when I'm finished applying my makeup?" Once you answer that, applying lip liner applying is a cinch!  

I Want A Natural Look!

* Match your lip liner to your natural lip color or lipstick.

* Apply a moisturizing balm.

* When applying lip liner, follow your natural lip line. If you want your lips to look fuller, line outside your natural lip line, but just a little! No strange, clownish mouths, please! 

STEP ONE: Make a ‘V’

Holding the lip liner steady, follow your Cupid’s bow (the little ‘V’ at the top of your mouth).

 

STEP TWO: Draw Two Tails

Draw a tail from the top of each side of the ‘V’ to each corner of your mouth. 

 

STEP THREE: Connect the Tails

Connect the ends of the tails along your bottom lip. 

* Add lipstick or lip gloss.

I Want A Dramatic or Retro Look!

* For a more dramatic or retro look, your lip liner should be a few shades darker than your lip color or lipstick. 

 * Apply a moisturizing balm.

 * Add lipstick or lip gloss. (Yes, do this before you line your lips!).

I Want My Lip Color To Last Longer! 

Does your lipstick or gloss seem to vanish right after your apply it? 

Here's a pro tip:

Apply lip liner over your entire lips and then apply lip color. Your lip color will last longer, and when it does wear off, you will be left with a wash of color instead of a lip liner outline!
