1.     It’s the master at creating the illusion of fuller lips. Use lip liner that’s a shade darker than your lipstick. Line the cupid’s bow as well the middle of the lower lip then blend with a matching lipstick. Finish the look by filling in the rest of the lips with a lighter shade of lipstick.

2.     You can recreate your desired shape or correct ‘lopsided lips’. Just use the liner to reconstruct your new lip, be careful not to make it too obvious. It’s essential to blend, blend and blend some more.

3.     Colourless lip liners are just as effective. These are great if you are in a rush or you don’t have the steadiest hand. They will match any lip colour shade and prevent smudging.
