How to Combine Lip Liner and Lipstick for the Ultimate DIY Lip Kit
The key to a flawless, pigmented lip is a bomb lip liner (go ahead and quote us). Lip liners stop lipsticks from feathering, lock them in place all day and are a great way to make a shade work. Pairing a deeper lip liner with a shade that isn’t quite right will help you refresh and reuse the lippies you haven’t reached for in a while. When it comes to playing matchmaker with your lip products, there’s lots of ways to go about it. You can go for a matched pair of lippies for a bolder finish or choose a deeper liner to complement a lighter lipstick.
Peep our favorite pairings, ahead:
A pre-matched pair, these two lippies are the same shade so you can amplify and lock in your lip color. This true brown shade is great for fall and is a great everyday option. To get the most out of these, start by outlining your lips and filling them before applying the suede matte lipstick. Trust us, it’ll last (almost) all day.
Another preset pairing, these two lippies have opposing undertones. When mixed together, they balance each other out and create a neutral lip look you can rock everyday.
The iconic pink-nude lip look (popularized by a certain beauty guru known for her lip kits) has become a staple in many beauty junkie’s routines. This combo is perfect for everyday no-makeup makeup looks or paired with a bold, colorful eye.
