Lip liner is one thing I thought I would never use when I first started wearing lipstick. I was like nah, forget all that, I’m just gonna put this lipstick on & go. I eventually fell in love with it though when I realized it helps make a way too bright lipstick easier to wear. being a true lover of nudes & pinks, I love a good brown lip liner especially.
Two of my favorite lip liner’s would have to be MAC Chestnut and NYX Expresso. Any brown liner works just as good though (there are so many gems for $.99) some just give better color payoff. with a nude that I love by Colourpop and brown lip liner combined I’ll show you why to me it’s so essential.
On the left – no liner, which as pretty as the nude is, is a little harsh and doesn’t look very natural (but if you like that look, do you!) then we have to the right – lined with NYX Expresso which gives the nude a so much softer look. Colourpop’s lippies are very very matte alone so lining my lips when wearing these takes away the harsh look right away. A lot of girls feel like nudes & pinks are just too bright and they can’t pull it off but all you need is this gem really. It also works so well with a lot of other bright lippies too, please add it to your collection.
