A few years ago I started following a blog called Maskcara. It has since become a very popular blog and makeup company. The reason I started reading it was because I loved all of the beauty tutorials Cara would do! It was the first place I had ever read about contouring your lips to make them look more full! I thought this was the coolest thing ever and have done it almost every day since! Cara would line her lips with a contour color and then apply her lip color, which I thought looked really good. Since then I have learned more about lip liner and have found that it works wonders for making your lips appear more full—or just more precise if you’re doing a bold lip. One of my favorite things to do for a kind of Kylie-Jenner-lip look is to overdraw my lips slightly. There are a couple of videos below that show what you can do with lip liner as well!
Overlining your lips is trending right now, I personally love the look! Huda Beauty shows you how in Step 2 with her pro tip. It’s fun to try new things with makeup, so if this interests you, give it a try!
My favorite brands of lip liner are:
- Too Faced Perfect Lips lip liner (in perfect nude)—This is my favorite ever!
- Mac Lip Pencil—I recommend the Lip Pencils over the Pro Longwear Lip Pencils because they aren’t as creamy and don’t budge as much.
- Rimmel London Lip Liner Pencil—Super affordable!
