Why Wearing Lip Liner Under Lip Gloss Will Become Your New Favorite Beauty HackSeptember 21, 2020
If you’re a makeup maximalist, you probably feel like wearing one product on your lips just isn’t enough. Especially when it comes to lippies on the lighter side (like sheers, glosses or balms), it’s difficult to really get long-lasting pigment without compromising lightweight texture. That’s why our favorite new lip hack is to apply some color underneath our gloss — and it’ll forever change the way you wear your lip products. Here’s how to nail the look.
After exfoliating your pout, start by lining your lips with a creamy, pigmented pencil. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Anti-Feathering Lip Liner in Nude Pink. Start by lining the outermost part of your lips, then filling them entirely in with the pencil. If you want a plumper, juicier (and more #Insta-worthy) lip look, slightly overline them.
Once they’re filled in, it’s time to add your gloss — one of our favorites for this is the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 8 HR Pro Gloss in Blush. Instead of a more sheer appearance, the light pink shade of the liner will make the color of the gloss pop a whole lot more, adding a little more personality to your pout.
