How to: Change your lipstick color with lip liner

12 Nov

Up until recently, lip liners have never been my “thing.”  I often use them on clients but rarely for myself.  The other day I was experimenting with my makeup (as I often do) and I decided to get out my stash of lip liners.  I normally just use them under lipstick to extend the wear time (for clients).  After playing around, I discovered how much fun it is to layer different lip colors on top of liners!  I whipped out some lipsticks that I NEVER wear and got to work.  Check out how this deep plum liner revolutionized (yep, that’s right, the R word) some old lipsticks:

The plum lip liner is a warm brick purple.  Chloe is a cool magenta with a blue iridescent sheen finish.  Sparkling Dusty Rose is a warm, light peachy pink with tiny flecks of silver glitter and a silver sheen finish.

See how it really makes the lipstick “pop?”  My camera had a hard time picking up the color, but in person the finished lip is very bold. 

I love the way these compliment each other.  The Sparkling Dusty Rose is a tad too light and frosty for my taste, so I never wear it.  Paired with the plum liner, it makes the perfect combo of red and pink!

Where: Ulta, Amazon (Plum, Chloe, Sparkling Dusty Rose).  Price: $3.49/0.04oz (Plum), $3.99/0.14oz (Chloe), $5.50/0.15oz (Sparkling Dusty Rose).

Do you use lip liner?  If so, how often?  Any favorites?

Drink water. Wear SPF.
