A well-defined pout can steal the show. That being said, often, too much credit is paid to the colour and little or no attention is given to the lip liner. Truth be told, lip liner is an integral step to getting the perfect pout. If you’ve been skipping it all along, it’s time to stop! We’re here to offer some assistance in the form of an expert guide to help you choose and apply lip liner…
how to choose and apply lip liner

Step 1

If you are using a nude or brown lipstick, choose a lip liner that is closest to the colour of your natural lips. Try the Lakmé 9 To 5 Lip Liner which comes with a soft tip that makes lining lips extremely easy.

Step 2

While applying a lip liner make sure you draw the line carefully along the natural contours of your lip. Start with your cupid’s bow and extend it to the corner of your lips. Make sure you don’t use a liner darker than your lipstick as this might give your lips a shadow effect.

Step 3

The final step is to fill in your lined lips with a lipstick starting from the centre of your lip extending to the corners. Use a Q-Tip to erase any smudges.

With these steps in mind, you would’ve achieved that perfect pout!
