How to Apply the Lip Liner in 3 Different Ways?

How to Apply the Lip Liner in 3 Different Ways?

We all love to tint our pouty lips with our favourite lip colour. But what do you exactly feel about your lip liner? Girls generally have a love-hate kind of relationship with their lip liners. Applying lip liners can get a bit tricky. But when done right, they can let you have the dreamiest lips you have ever imagined. From preventing lip colour leaks to helping the lip stains stay long on your lips, lip liners solve all major lip makeup issues for the lovely ladies.

If you want to know more about using lip liner lipstick together, scroll down and dive deeper!

Here's how to apply lip liner like a pro-MUA in three different ways:

1.      Want to add volume to your thin lips? 

For all the gorgeous women out there, who often crib that they do not have fuller lips, lip liner can serve as Cinderella's magic wand. Next time you see the picture-perfect images of celebrities and influencers, know that a lot has gone behind the scenes (surgeries, contour, bronzer and, of course, photoshop). However, you do not need any of these to flaunt voluminous lips. Get yourself the right lip liner, and you are good to go.

Grab a lip liner of the same colour as your lipstick and draw the outline with light hands. Try accentuating the contours by 3-4 mm. And start from your lower lips. Do not forget to blend the contours with lipstick. Dab a bit of lip gloss at the centre of your lips, and voilà! You are ready to pout and click endless selfies.

2.      Does your lip colour fade away superfast?

Use a lip liner as the base before applying the lipstick of the same colour. Try applying the lip liner using the cross-hatching technique. Now apply the lip colour, and we promise that the stain will hold for long on your lips. Basically, the powdery texture of the lip liner prevents the lip colour from fading away.

3.      Is that blood or your lip colour? maybe!

If you do not wish to look like a bloodthirsty vampire, you need to stop your lip colour from bleeding around the fine lines of your mouth. Use a good quality lip liner, like the ones available at KOL and use it as a barrier. When you outline your lips with a lip liner before applying lipstick, it prevents the lip colour from spreading out. Moisten your lips, draw the outline with steady hands and then apply the lip colour, followed by some loose powder. Your lip colour will never bleed again.

The Bottom Line

Once you master the art of outlining your lips with a lip liner, nothing can stop you from flaunting those mesmerising and fuller lips. Try these lip lining hacks and slay them with confidence!

3 Things to Never Do with Your Lip Pencil

3 Things to Never Do with Your Lip Pencil

Lipstick isn't something to be afraid of. In fact, we believe it should be used far more frequently than it is now. However, there are several undeniable recommendations that will ensure that any lipstick goes on smoothly and stays there for hours, and the most crucial recommendation is that lip liner should always be used before applying lipstick.

The best lip liner not only assists in outlining the area where you'll be applying lipstick, but it also assures that it won't bleed outside of your lips and will last a long time.. On the other hand, lip liner can have the reverse effect and make your lipstick seem worse for wear if used poorly.

This year, it's time to take out your favourite lipstick shade, and the best way to start is to avoid committing these three common mistakes that most people make with the lip liner pencil:

1.      Ignoring It Because You Don't Have the Appropriate Shade

The best lip liner tip comes in two parts. First and foremost, you should choose a neutral-ish lip liner that will work with everything. You don't have to match your skin tone perfectly, but aim to keep within a certain range. 

Even if you follow up with red or pink lipstick, it will still accomplish the trick. Just make sure to blend carefully and cover any lined areas completely with lipstick so that no neutral shows through. Second, if you're wearing a specific lipstick shade for an important event or occasion, it's a good idea to pick up the matching lip liner shade or lip liner lipstick.

2.      Skipping/Forgetting Blending It Out

Remember how we used to apply a frosted purple lip gloss on top? No? Then, even if you're using the exact same colour as your lipstick, blending is crucial. Simply take the liner and proceed to fill in your lips, heading towards the centre of your pout after you've completed the initial lip line. Apply lip liner to the outer third of your lips until they are barely covered. Then buff it out towards the centre of your lips with your finger. The idea is to produce an ombré shading inside the lips while keeping the outer line clean and flawless.

3.      Using a Strong Grip

Let's use the phrase "light as a feather" instead. To begin, approach your lip line at a 45-degree angle. Begin drawing on the lip liner with a continuous motion and little strokes, using feather-light pressure. Repeat until you've completed the full lip line. Return to the areas that require a little extra pigment. Always remember to use short, delicate strokes.

Use these suggestions by KOL to master lip liner finally. Your lipstick — and the confidence that comes with wearing it — will thank you later.
