This magical stick helps define your luscious lips, and keeps your luscious lipstick from straying beyond your lip line. To complete this How-To you will need: A lip liner A sharpener for the liner Lipstick And some tissues Some lip balm (optional) And some lip gloss (optional) Step 1: Choose lip liner Choose a lip liner that is the same tone, or lighter, than your lipstick. A darker liner will draw too much attention to the contrast. Step 2: Sharpen pencil Sharpen the lip liner pencil before using it to remove any dirt or bacteria that has built up since its last use. Tip: If you want a little extra moisture on your lips, apply a little balm, then blot with a tissue. Step 3: Draw upper lip Draw a thin line along your upper lip line, angling the pencil for a soft application. Do this with delicate strokes, starting from the outer corners of your lips and moving to the center. Step 4: Repeat on bottom lip Repeat this on the bottom lip line. Tip: If you want to go for a vintage '30s look, tuck your upper lip under your teeth so you can see the V-shape in the center. Line this bow and the middle of the bottom to lip for balance. Draw light lines to the outer corners on the top and bottom. Step 5: Shade in lips Lightly shade in the rest of your lips with the pencil. Step 6: Apply lipstick Apply your lipstick, blot with a tissue, and—if you want—dab on a little gloss for a finishing touch. Thanks for watching How To Apply Lip Liner!
