Lip liner is a truly forgotton gem. To be honest it does lay in my dresser all neglected and feeling sorry for itself. I would like to say I own a colour to match every lipstick but nope, I don’t, I just seem to own various shades of nude. Although liner has been tarnished by the nighties, used right it should serve a rightful place in everybody’s collection.
Small feathery strokes are key, you don’t want solid lines, unless thats the look your going for. Don’t go above your natural lip line, its not a food look, it looks obvious and unless your a pro makeup artist, don’t do it!
For a long lasting lip colour, lip pencil has the lasting power and I’ve seen pro artists use just a pencil for the entire lip. It looks amazing if you want a strong, matte lip and if you have the right colour it can look really effective; think oranges and reds!
Now I managed to grab this beauty for £2.00 in TKMaxx by New CID which is currently £16.00 on feelunique.com here. Another fab nude is MAC’s Spice and for a deep purple MAC’s Vino. Check out Vino in full force here.
