Tutorial: Hot To Draw Perfect Lips



Lip lining is the key to neatly covered lips. Lip liners can prevent color feathering outwards, or can be used as a lip base to help your lipstick last longer. The final result wihtout it can be pretty too, depends on how good you are with lipstick, but it really makes a big difference.

Applying lipstick and lip liner combo may be different on some people, but here's how I do it:



You might wanna moisturize your lips in advance. Apply an appropriate amount of lip balm and wait for several minutes, then wipe it gently with tissue.
Doing this step might take a while, so I prefer applying lip balm first before doing all of my make up, and when it's time to apply lipstick, I would remove the balm with tissue.



Scribble an X shape on your cupid's bow first.



Continue the line for the rest of your upper lip line. Just follow your natural ones.



Fill the rest of your lower lip line. Start from the middle, then continue to draw the lines outward.



Fill your whole lips with the lip pencil.



If you want to make your lips look fuller, this is the time. Trace your lip pencil slightly out of your natural lip line. Don't do it too much or your lips will look swollen.
This step is optional, might work best on thin lips.



Apply your lipstick with similar shade with your lip pencil. Using a lip brush will be a great advantage since you can trace hard places better.
If you have trouble with misplaced lines, simply erase them with a face concealer, then blend it carefully using your finger tip or a concealer brush.

And you are done.


Final result.


I also do this to reshape my lips to look more narrow:

  • Silky Girl Lip Pencil in Mauve
  • Wet N Wild Mega Last Lipstick in In The Flesh
(Review about these two will be up soon!)



Several tips about lip pencils:
  • Try to match your lip pencil with listick shade. 
  • If you're a beginner, start with a nude skin tone pencil first. Once you get a hold of it, buy another lip pencil that matches your lip color that's the hardest to pull off, like red.
  • Eyeliners or eyebrow pencil would be a great substitute if you don't have a lip pencil.
