How to Apply Lip Liner

We love a defined and long-wearing pout, so adding a quality lip liner to our lipstick routine is an absolute must. If you’re new to the world of lining and defining and don’t know why you should use a lip liner or how to apply lip liner, we’ve got you covered! We’ve also got you covered with 2 brand new, ultra-creamy lip liners from our April KissMe collection that you can use to follow these tips to achieve the lip of your dreams. You can thank us later 😉!

How to Use Lip Liner

When you know how to apply lip liner perfectly, it can work wonders! Not only will your pout look fuller and more even, your lipstick will last that much longer. Sharpen that lip liner and let’s get to applying!

Step 1: Prep Your Lips

Your lips should be prepped before adding any product to them. Start by exfoliating and buffing away dead skin using our Hey Sugar Lip Scrub and follow up with our Total BALMshell lip balm to keep your lips moisturized.

Step 2: Choose the Perfect Shade

Depending on your desired look, you can match your lip liner and your lipstick or choose one that’s slightly darker for an ombre lip effect.

Step 3: Line Your Lips

It’s crucial to take your time with this one, we want clean lines after all! Start lining your lips from your cupid’s bow working your way all around your pout, following the natural line of your lips. 

Step 4: Fill Everything In

Now that your lips are lined, you can fill in with your lip liner or go in with a liquid lipstick or gloss! Make sure your lip liner is blended so there’s no hard lines when you apply your lipstick or lip gloss. 

Step 5: Finishing Touches

Once you’re done filling your lips in, grab a small concealer brush so you can clean up any small imperfections! This step is completely optional but recommended if you want a defined look.

Lip Liner Hacks

Now you know the basics of lining your lips! If you’re not fully convinced that lip liner will make any difference, if at all, here are 2 lip liner hacks that you can use to achieve fuller lips and even longer wear. 

Overlining Your Lips

Overlining is a technique used for applying lip liner for fuller lips. The key here is to go a little over your natural lip line to create a bigger appearance and more even lips. It can be easy to go overboard so make sure you’re in front of a mirror and you’re taking your time!

Fill in with Lip Liner and Lipstick

If you’re looking for incredible longevity, apply lip liner and lipstick when you’re filling in will work wonders. When you fill your lips in with lip liner first, it’ll act as a primer for your liquid lipstick since it will have something to adhere to (while improving the pigment, too)!
