Lip liner is a makeup product that can help you achieve the look you want for your lips. It provides an even base for your lipstick to rest on and stay put longer. It also helps prevent feathering (when color transfers from one area of the face to another). Lip liner comes in a variety of colors, so it’s important to choose one that will complement your natural lip shade or enhance what you’re trying to achieve with your makeup look. Here are some tips for choosing the right lip liner:

1. Choose a matching shade of lip liner.

If you have fair skin, go for a deeper color than your natural lip color; if you have darker skin, choose a lighter one. If you want to make your lips look bigger, use a darker shade and vice versa for smaller ones. If you want the outline effect but don’t want anyone noticing the liner itself (like when wearing nude lipstick), go with matte nude lip liners instead!

2. Go for a darker shade to make your lips look bigger, or a lighter shade for smaller ones.

If the goal is to make your lips look bigger, choose a lip liner that’s one or two shades darker than your natural lip color. If you want to make them appear smaller, go with a lighter shade.

Lip liner should be used as an accent–it shouldn’t overpower or clash with what’s already on your lips (unless that’s what you’re going for!). To complement the lipstick you have chosen, choose something similar in color but slightly darker than it–this will give definition without taking away from its focal point.

If you’re using one single color throughout all of these steps (which we recommend), then choosing a lip pencil of this same hue should give an even base layer before adding any other products onto it later on down the line!

3. Know that the same color on everyone will look different based on skin tone and lip size.

You may think that the same color will look the same on everyone, but that’s not true. A good lip liner should complement your skin tone and also match your lip size. If you have large lips, for example, it might be better to use a darker shade than if you have small lips (so as not to make them look even smaller).

If you’re still not sure which shade would be best for you or how much contrast between your lip line and surrounding skin is best suited for your face shape and complexion? Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I have light or dark hair?
  • What colors do my eyeshadow palette contain?

4. Make sure that the color is matte, not glossy or sparkly, so it doesn’t leave behind shine when you apply it over your lipstick.

Glossy lip liners are not very durable, so if you like the look of a light sheen on your lips, then go for one of these types of liners instead of matte ones. They’re also great if you want to create a darker color on top of them because they have more pigment than their counterparts do!

5. Use lip liner as an accent color or to define the edges of your lips, but leave out dark colors (especially black) if you have any areas of dryness or flakiness on your lips that you want covered up by makeup products (like concealer).

  • Use a lip liner to define the edges of your lips.
  • Use a lip liner as an accent color and create a more dramatic look by applying it just outside the natural line of your upper lip or filling in just one side of the bottom lip.
  • Create a more natural look by applying the same shade of lipstick or gloss all over your mouth, then using a darker shade of lipliner (or even eye shadow) to fill in any gaps between where your natural color ends and begins. This will also help prevent bleeding if you tend to lick or bite at your lips while wearing lipstick!

A good lip liner should match your skin tone and provide an even base for your lipstick to rest on and stay put longer

It’s important to choose a shade that matches your natural lip color, but it’s also crucial that you keep in mind which shades work best with each type of skin tone:

  • Pale or fair: look for a pinky nude or peach pencil (or even better, one with some shimmer) that mimics the natural color of lips without looking too overdone.
  • Medium: opt for something rich like burgundy or red–but only if it works with other makeup looks you regularly wear! Otherwise stick with neutral browns/nudes instead of earthy hues like greenish browns or purples. You can always add an extra layer overtop if needed later on down the road…
