Worried About Using Lip Liner Perfectly? Follow Few Steps

Using a lip liner seems fairly simple, however there are some steps that one must follow to get that million-dollar smile, say experts.
Bhavya Sharma, Beauty and make up expert at lists down few ways to get the lip linear right:

* Remove dead skin: Well-hydrated and smooth lips are essential for a neat finish. Apply lip balm to moisturize your lips. And to remove dead skin, gently use a soft toothbrush over your lips. Once this is done, use a tissue paper to blot your lips and to remove the extra balm.

* Choose lip liner: The lip liner should be of similar shade as your lipstick. This way it blends in well with the lipstick and does not stick out.

* Outline the lips: Draw an ‘M’ shape on your upper lip where the two arches converge. Do this slightly above your natural lip line to make your lips fuller. Be precise and do not overdraw.

* Line the lower lip: Keep your mouth wide open and tighten your lips. Start outlining the lower lip from the middle and gradually move outwards to the sides.

* Apply strokes: Now that you have outlined to lips, it’s time to move inwards. Start by drawing small strokes on your lips. Use your lip liner to fill in the lips smoothly.

* Blend it: If you want to sport a matte look, then you are done. Just apply some lip gloss and you are set. But, if you want a strong shade, apply a lipstick of the same shade. Blend the lipstick with the liner using a lip brush for an even-toned look. Clean the edges using a tissue or cotton bud.
