Chisel Those Lips
Lip liner has become a beauty staple in the world of cosmetics. Using a lip liner has a myriad of benefits as it greatly enhances any make-up look. Lip liner is ideal for improving the wear of lipstick, reducing colour bleeding and providing better definition to the lips with enhanced features.
Applying Lip Liner
Applying lip liner can be a challenge. It is important to follow the necessary steps to get the most out of your lip liner.
1. Prepare to line the lips
It is recommended to exfoliate the lips to ensure there are no dead skin cells building up on the lips which can negatively affect the application of the lip liner. Make sure to only gently exfoliate the lips as scrubbing or rubbing too hard can damage the skin surface.
2. Hydrate the lips
Using a lip balm pior to application is recommended to improve application to the lip. Applying a smooth line is made much easier.
3. Sharpen lip liner
Use a sharpener to sharpen the point of the lip liner. This will greatly improve precision and control to produce a precise line where desired on the lip. It also keeps the lip liner hygienic as it removes used sections of the liner before each use.
4. Warm the liner
Before applying lip liner, it is recommended to draw lines across the back of the hand to heat up the surface of the point for a smoother application.
4. Part the lips and trace natural lip line
Stick to the natural line across lip surface for a natural appearnce. Fill in all the cracks and creases with short, light strokes for better precision.
5. Complete the look
It will depend on your desired outcome. After tracing the natural lip line, you can fill in the lips with liner and apply lipstick for a vibrant, long-lasting finish. For a more natural look, you can blend liner into the lips and then use a lip gloss.
