|Slim Lip Pencils by NYX|
Benefits of using lip liners:
- As stated previously, it prevents your lipstick from bleeding and smudging.
- It defines lips and gives the appearance of plumper lips
but don't get all Kylie Jenner on me
- Lip liners can serve as a primer and help lipstick last all day. Before applying lipstick, color/fill-in your lips then, apply lipstick.
- Lip liners can help you create an ombre look; although, I think this trend may be a little dated...
PSA: Please stop wearing black liners guys. I'm not sure how or why that trend has lasted so long. It looked crazy back then and definitely is unacceptable now. But hey, I am not without fault. I used to line my lips with a dark brown pencil. Shhh, don't tell anyone.
If you're just starting out like me and don't want to spend a grip on liners, checkout NYX's lip liners. Their pencils are really good, cheap and available pretty much everywhere. For more, visit Ulta.
