What’s the work of a lip liner?
To define the edges of the lipstick, nothing is better than a lip liner. However if your lips are defined naturally, you might skip this step. But if the edges of the pout are not even then the lip liner makes it symmetrical.
Applying lip liner would prevent lipstick from feathering or spreading around the lips. If you have noticed your lipstick smearing, then always use a lip liner along with your lipstick. Darker shades of lip color are more pigmented so they can feather more.
A lip liner is of course thicker than a lipstick and therefore it lasts long. So you can line your lips first and fill in your lips with the lip liner and apply lipstick over it. Lip liner colors are generally matte, so once you are done lining the lips, go ahead and apply lipstick and lip gloss.
Few tips to use lip liner
Lip liners can be in pencil form or thick liquid form. Liquid liners can be used anytime anywhere, however lip liner pencils need to be sharpened always.
Always pick a lip liner which is close to the shade of your lipstick. Or can be one shade darker. Never use a liner that is lighter than the color of your lipstick. Also a lip liner which is too dark from the color of lipstick you are wearing, will make your lips look darker too and wont be right.
For thinner lips, you need to line outside of the natural lip line, so that your lips look fuller. But then don’t stray too far from your natural lip line as it will make your lips look very unnatural then.
