a lip liner how to

mixed textures

i’ve never used lip liner in my life.

but the lip sticks i’ve gotten always run away.

do yours? {because if they do, you’d better go catch them.}

seriously though, do they? {and did you ever make that prank phone call about a refrigerator running away? because i…didn’t. really. i promise. no prank phone calling on this end…}

anyway, maybe y’all are pros and don’t need this advice, but for the rest of you out there, clear lip liner is amazing. you can use it with any color to keep it inside the lines and all you have to do is trace the outside-ish line of your lips and then apply the lipstick. i didn’t have any trouble getting the crisp lines i’ve admired for so long. and it stayed all day.

    I’m not a big lipstick wearer. I usually just wear Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer (lip gloss with a fair amount of color in it). My beauty aha! moment was when I saw this pin:
    Tightling is subtle but it gives my eyes that certain something extra that I’ve been searching for for YEARS!

    My favorite new lip product is a Revlon:Bitten Lip Stain+Balm. I have it in Desire and it is a bright pink color. I put it on in the morning and it seems to stay all day! Check it out if you are looking for a good lip stain!

    May I ask where you bought the clear lip liner?

    • Caitlin February 11, 2013 at 12:15 PM

      Absolutely! I found it at Walmart.
