When I first learned about applying makeup as a tween, I thought lip liner would be one of those items I would never wear. I don’t think I understood how to apply it or what its purpose was.
Liner is now one of my favorite tools. It can be used to extend the longevity of your lipstick and define the lip line. Overdrawn lips have been a huge trend in the past few years!
Make Up For Ever sent me their High Precision Lip Pencil, designed to define and enhance lips with 12 different shades. The shades are all natural tones, nude, pink and red, to provide makeup artists (and makeup addicts, like myself) with the best, most natural shades to define the lips.
- 10 warm beige – this is already my favorite shade. I haven’t tested these in-depth, but this color is great for a nude lip, and great for overdrawing my lips.
- 11 natural beige
- 12 beige brown
- 13 nuts
- 14 dark brown
- 20 pink
- 21 pink brown
- 22 rose wood
- 23 tender pink
- 40 red
- 41 brown red
- 42 red burgundy
- For a volumized, plumping effect, trace the cupid’s bow and the center curve of the lower lip to create perfect symmetry. Trace the corners of the mouth, then connect each corner to the cupid’s bow in one motion for each side. Repeat with the lower lip.
- For natural lip enhancement, applying along the lip contour then blend to the inside of the lips with a lip brush. Use a lip brush to fill in lips, then cover with lipstick.
