I am totally a lipliner pencil person. I love matte lipsticks to death. Lip pencils give a nice matte lipstick effect. The best part is that these are not even expensive. Try it with different colored lipsticks. It’s a fun way to experiment with different looks without having to buy million different lipsticks.


Follow these hacks and I promise you will become a pro in applying a lip pencil.

  • Do not oversharpen the pencil. Rub it back and forth your hand to dull the look for a soft texture.
  • Blending is the key! Don’t forget to blend the lip pencil. It’s the most important tip.
  • Do not extend past the natural lip line.
  • Liners should never be darker than your lipsticks.
  • Overdrawn liner looks cheap and harsh, subtle liner plays up your pout and this way lips look more defined and fuller.
  • Use a universal nude lip pencil that works underneath all shades and colors of lipsticks.

These are the basic tips when followed properly will increase your makeup skills.
