Lip Liners are certainly very effective in giving shape and definition to your lips; they can add volume to your pout and make sure that your lipstick stays intact for a longer time.
However, there are things that you should watch out for when you apply your lip liner:
- Match the shade: Make sure that the color of your lipstick and lip liner or lip pencil is as similar as possible. Don't go use a black lip liner and apply a red lipstick or balck and gold, cuz I have seen that alot on the lips of ladies. It is wrong.
- Make a thin even line and Blend: Make sure that you don’t apply your lip liner with a heavy hand. The whole essence is to outline and not fill. So a thin precise line that follows the lines of your lips should be applied and blended in properly.
