The Tuesday Tip: Lipstick Before Liner

Smashbox-Always-Sharp-Lip-Liner -Nude-Light-Review

When it comes to applying lipstick, the standard rule is that lip liner should come first. Most girls apply liner before lipstick to help them see and trace the natural line of their lips. However this doesn't necessarily make the lipstick look better, it just helps with application. So I like to break the rules and apply my liner last. Imma bad bitch after all...

Applying lip liner after lipstick locks in the colour, fills in any gaps and helps achieve a sharp, precise lip shape. I also find that applying lip liner last creates a more natural look.

One of my favourite lip liners is the Smashbox Always Sharp Lip Liner in Nude Light (£16.00 Boots / $21.00 smashbox.com). This nude lip liner creates a defined lip line, whilst also preventing the lipstick from bleeding. It also contains a sharpener in its cap, which sharpens the liner each time you twist the cap off...genius!
