Not lining your lips
If you don’t want a sloppy ring of color encircling the outside of your mouth at the end of the night, don’t forego the lip liner. Feathering and bleeding is never a cute look, and liner is essential for giving lipstick something to adhere to. To prevent overly sharp lines, try running your lip liner back and forth over your hand to blunt the point and warm up the wax of your pencil after sharpening it. Moist, rounded tips (as opposed to harshly sharpened points), are optimal for creating more natural looking definition. Above all, never line them in the wrong color. Outlining your lips with a hue one shade darker than your natural lip color will make them look instantly fuller, but be careful not to stray too far from your innate undertone. Always avoid these makeup mistakes that make you look sloppy.
Lining them way outside your natural lip line
What’s worse than neglecting lip liner is applying it incorrectly. While subtle liner can work to play up your pout, overdrawn liner can quickly turn into a Joker resemblance. For a gorgeous silhouette that isn’t blaringly obvious, dot concealer to the outer edges of your lips, then use a small concealer brush to blend it in. Afterwards, draw the lip lining ever so slightly outside your natural lips. Try dabbing some highlighting shadow to the center of your bottom lip after putting on your lipstick to make it look even fuller (trust us, it works wonders).
