RE: Can you wear just lip liner with no lipstick?
1.) Fill it in To make the most of your lip liner’s secret powers, use it as a base over your entire lip instead of just around the perimeter. This technique will allow not only give your lipstick a smooth base, but help you avoid that unfortunate “ring around the mouth” look once your lip color starts to fade. You’re welcome.
2.) Matchy-matchy Gone are the days when your lip liner was a full shade darker than your lip color – or in a completely different color spectrum altogether. Ninties, you gave us some great things, but this questionable beauty trend was not one of them. To avoid looking like you’re going to a costume party, make sure you lip liner matches your lip color – or is at least in the same color family.
3.) Blend it out The thing about lip liner is that you don’t want people to know you’re wearing it (see above for reasons why). Let it work it’s mysterious power behind the scenes, keeping your lipstick in place and smudge-free without drawing any attention to itself. To avoid any telltale lip liner marks, blend it in with a lip brush after applying your lip color.
4.) Go invisible When all else fails, go invisible. Invisible lip liner might just be the best thing that’s happened to us since finding out the right way to use bobby pins – it’s mind blowing and our worlds were a bit shaken up afterwards, but we’re so glad we can face the future armed with this knowledge. Not sure what invisible lip liner is or why it just changed the beauty game? Here are three reasons why we’re obsessed.
