You Will Need
- A lip liner
- A sharpener for the liner
- And some tissues
- Some lip balm (optional)
- And some lip gloss (optional)
Choose lip liner
Choose a lip liner that is the same tone, or lighter, than your lipstick. A darker liner will draw too much attention to the contrast.
Sharpen the lip liner pencil before using it to remove any dirt or bacteria that has built up since its last use.
Draw upper lip
Draw a thin line along your upper lip line, angling the pencil for a soft application. Do this with delicate strokes, starting from the outer corners of your lips and moving to the center.
Repeat on bottom lip
Repeat this on the bottom lip line.
Shade in lips
Lightly shade in the rest of your lips with the pencil.
Apply your lipstick, blot with a tissue, and—if you want—dab on a little gloss for a finishing touch.
