line them lips

this post is all about lip liners. i love love them! a lot of people get scared of using them because they don't want that huge contrast between the lip liner & lip color. i was the same way, but after taking a MAC cosmetic makeup artist course & actually learned how to do it, properly. i can't get enough of them. they make your lips look fuller, more volume, makes your lipstick not run over the edges, also it can make your lipstick stay on longer acting like a stain underneath. 
applying- wait until the very end of your makeup application. Use makeup remover/warm water & a q-tip to remove everything on your lips(in case you painted your lips with foundation like i do everyday) let it dry. i personally love doing a lip scrub( Victoria secret makes a fab one called PRO Smooth FX Lip Scrub get it here) or use a toothbrush! seriously, it works so stinkin' well, just scrub your lips with it for about a minute or more if you like. Sometimes i even put a little sugar on the toothbrush, run some water over it & scrub away. AMAZING exfoliate for your lips. 

Then dry em' off, use a thin moisture lip balm, i love Maybelline Baby lips in Quenched. 
now would be the time to use a lip primer or lip erase. heres the two i love

Lip Primer Potion; Urban Decay
MAC  Lip Erase in Dim
now here are my top 3 FAVE lip liners along with lip color
1a. Beautique Lip Liner in Dusty Rose & only $1.50!!! this is by far the one i use the most. I feel it gives you just a shade darker color than your natural so it stands out but not too much. & it honestly lasts so long. Pick it up at your local Sallys Beauty! this picture is just outlined with lip liner. 1b this picture is with the lip liner filled in completely. 1c lip liner filled in completely with Maybelline Baby Lips in Grape Vine on top, i love that color its similar to the lip liner color so you can reapply throughout the day & keep your lips moisturized & get that color still.
