What To Look For

Since lip liner is the foundation that goes on before your lipstick, you should choose yours carefully. For every variety of lipstick out there, there is a variety of lip liner too. When deciding which lip liner is the best buy for you, pick a liner color that blends easily into your lipstick. The function of a good lip liner is to define lip contours and prevent your lipstick from fading away at the edges during the day.

When you buy a lip liner, you need to take two things into account: your natural skin color, and your preferred lipstick shades. Makeup experts recommend shopping for a new lip liner without any make-up – not even foundation. Lip liners and lipsticks that look great next to natural skin are going to look fantastic once you’re wearing a full face of make-up. If you find it difficult to choose a color, a good rule is to pick something very close to your natural lip color. You might be wondering what the point is of using lip liner if it’s the exact same shade, but its still provides strong definition and prevents your lipstick or gloss from bleeding. Choosing a nature-identical shade is a clever way to make your lips look a little curvier and plumper without it seeming like you’ve even put any make-up on.

If you’re going to be matching your new lip liner to your favorite shade of lipstick, the general rule is to pick something two shades darker than your lipstick.

High quality needn’t mean a high price. Some of the most popular lip liners reviewed for this list are inexpensive compared to the major brands with their equally big costs. But picking the best lip liner for you is all about knowing what color to choose and how to apply it, and finding a range that works well with your body’s own chemistry. Some people find that a particular cheap brand of lip liner or eyeliner works much better for them (with longer wear and less irritation) than brands three times the price. Experiment and make the most of free samples until you find your perfect match.

Advantages Of Owning A Good Lip Liner

Lip liner is key to full, well-defined lips. You can sculpt your cupid’s bow to perfection, and even use a highlighter lip pencil to accentuate your lips further. Simply choose a lip pencil or concealer pencil one or two shades lighter than your own skin, and draw it just above your lip liner shade.

Lip liner is your best defense in prolonging the last of your lip color. Apply lip liner prior to your lip-gloss or lipstick in order to avoid bleeding and feathering. This is especially important if your lipstick color is dramatically different from your natural lip color. Just because your workday has to wear on, why should your lipstick have to wear off?

Even people who hate the idea of drenching their lips in lipstick every days can find a lot to appreciate about a good lip liner. It’s so much more lightweight, and it’s possible to pick a shade that’s natural and easy to wield so that you can define and enhance your lips without covering them up. A nude lip liner is perfect paired with a little lip balm to keep your lips moist and soft, but still looking completely natural and kissable.

Before you buy, take into account the mechanism of lip liner that works best for you. If you apply on the go, a retractable or mechanical style lip liner might work better since you don’t have to worry about keeping a messy sharpener in your purse. If you like a really sharply defined line, though, traditional style lip pencils can give you more control. Secondly, take into account whether the brand that sounds the best to you actually offers the shade(s) to suit your skin tone and your personality. Some of the lip liners on our list are available at great value in a 4, 6 or even 12 pack, which might be the best choice if you change you lip color every day, or if you’re setting up your own make-up kit. Next, decide on your budget. Finally, check out our guide to the best lip liners and find the right one for you.
