For years I didn’t really understand the importance of using a lip liner. It was just one extra step I didn’t want to take. I have naturally full lips and my cupids bow is very defined so it was very easy for me to apply my lipstick perfectly. Although its not a necessity, it wasn’t until I tried applying lipliner that I learned the actual importance. Here are the 3 reasons why I will continue to use lip liner.
- It helps your lipstick stay on longer. If you apply an even coat all over lips and top it off with your lipstick it will be less likely to fade.
- It helps to make uneven lips appear more even and to make thin lips look fuller. If you outline your lips with a lip liner one to two shades darker as a contour your lips will appear more full.
- You can use it as a matte lipstick. I have so many lip liners that I wear all over my lips in the place of lipstick and sometimes I prefer to wear it more than my actual lipstick tubes.
Overall, it makes your lipstick application look more neat and flattering and increases the staying power.
