Im not that fond of using lip liners when i first exposed myself into the world of makeup artistry,not knowing its benefits i just ignored them,and it didnt bother me at all if some of my friends would use lipliner and i dont....
But when i bought the Summer Sunset Lipstick from maybelline i noticed that it easily bleeds and fades compared to my friend who lined her lips prior to applying lipstick..since then,i can create any shape depending on what mood i am in.
Heart Shape lips(nichido red lip liner with Summer sunset lipstick from maybelline)
as the name suggest its main purpose is to line our lips and make it more defined,not only that we also extend it inside and cover the whole lips much like making a base prior to applying a lipstick,hence making it bolder and stay longer
A smaller heart shape lips,if you want to define your lips,then go and grab yourself your own lip liner
not only that it makes the lipshade more vibrant...it also adds a much cleaner look.
just got out of bed,i just played with my lip liner and 3 red lip shades..see how red lips gives out a powerful look.
and here is my lips without any liner..im wearing my estee lauder lipstick..
- if you have thick lips you may line your lips slightly inside your natural lip shape.then apply a concealer on the border for more definition
- if you have thin lips,then line your lips slightly outside your natural lip shape.then fill the whole lips,defining the cupids bow and making the lower lips slightly thicker than the upper.
- if you have uneven lip shape then lipliner will be your bestfriend.just make the shape adjustment that you prefer then fill it in and then apply your lipstick.same principles if you have shapeless lips.
- I also like to dab a mattifying powder after i fill in my lips using a lip liner before i use my lipstick,just to add an extra hold and barrier for my lips.
