Totally Cool 😎 Ways to Use Lip Liner as a Lipstick πŸ’„ for a Fab Makeup Twist ➿ ...


What do you do when you love your lip liner so much that you wish it was a lipstick?

You wear it as a lipstick, of course!

With a few little tricks you can do this and no one will be the wiser.

It takes a bit of practice to get this look down but you can do it.

1. Choose a Liner You Love

hair, eyebrow, face, black hair, nose,

The first thing you want to do is choose a liner that you love.

You may already know which one you’d love to wear as a full lip color.

If not, choose a fave and you can get started.

It’s a bit like using a lip crayon except the color is more concentrated and it takes a bit longer to apply.

However, because the color is more concentrated, it can actually make for a long wearing lip look.

2. Prep with Lip Balm

hair, face, clothing, blue, green,

Before you go any further, you want to prep your lips with a lip balm.

Lip liner is typically much drier than lipstick and doesn’t have the creamy feel that we love.2

Choose a lip balm that’s moisturizing but not too wet.

Regular Chapstick would actually work wonderfully.

One light layer is enough.

3. Line Your Lips

eyebrow, face, cheek, nose, eyelash,

You still want to line your lips as if you were going to fill them in with a lipstick.

This helps you to make sure that your lips still have the definition and shape you want them to have.

Your lip liner will probably glide on a bit more quickly due to the lip balm.

It could go off course a little easier so apply it carefully.

4. Fill in, Working from the outside in

face, hair, eyebrow, nose, blond,

Next, you want to begin filling your lips in like you would with a lipstick.2

Work from the outside in and take your time.

Lip liner isn’t as smooth as lipstick.

I’ve actually had it stick in a spot and cause a bit of a pinch.

Going slowly can prevent that from happening.
