Fancie Faves: Lip Liners

Lately I’ve been finding myself lining my lips to the gods! A good lip liner can extend the wear of your lipstick, make the color really pop and really give your lips definition. I love using lip liners to alter the color of my lipstick (or gloss) a bit but my favorite way to use them is to contour my lips. I know some ladies skip the lip liner but it’s so important to achieve a crisp, clean lip! You can either fill in your lips completely or create a nice contour by outlining your lips and then filling in the corners leaving the center bare. A great deal of my lip liners are from MAC but you can use any brand to achieve luscious lips!

After hauling Heroine and the Punk Couture lippies I’ve been in bright purples and bold vampy colors a lot! I’ve been using deeper shades to create a nice sexy contour and the bright shades to shake up the color a bit. My current faves include:

    • Fashion Boost
      bright purple cream
    • Currant
      intense reddish purple
    • Embrace Me
      vivid pinkish fuchsia
    • Magenta
      vivid pinkish purple
    • Vino
      intense violet purple
    • Nightmoth
      blackened plum
