#10 Makeup Mistake: Using the Wrong Lip Liner
Lip liners are an essential in any makeup artist’s kit, and they should be in yours too. Here are three you need:
1. A lip pencil that’s the same color as your lipstick. Create crisp lines or fill in the entire lip with pencil before layering lipstick so the color lasts longer.
2. A lip pencil that matches your natural lip color. Use this shade of pencil to line just outside your lips to create a plumper look.
3. A lip pencil one shade deeper than your nude lipstick. Nude lipsticks can blend into your skin tone, making lips seem to disappear. Line lips with this pencil before applying lipstick for stronger definition or after for softer definition
