Lip liners are a girl's best friend when it comes to sexy lips. They make your lips more lush and give you a fuller, more pouty look. They also keep your lip color on for a long time so you don’t have to worry about it smudging or running especially if you want to slay the whole day and party at night.
If you want to exude that fierce, badass look, the secret is in learning how to use lip liner so you’ve always got your lip game on.

HOW TO PUT ON LIP LINER TO ENHANCE YOUR LIPS
1. SCRUB YOUR LIPS
Give your lips the royal treatment they deserve by using a lip scrub to remove the rough, dead skin. One of the best ways to better enhance your lips through a lip liner is by making sure you have a smooth canvas to work on.
2. MOISTURIZE YOUR LIPS
After scrubbing your lips, apply some lip balm to moisturize them. You want to keep your lips fresh and hydrated.
3. LINE YOUR LIPS
To start applying lip liner, draw an “X” shape over your Cupid’s bow and then work downwards until you reach the corners of your lips. Line your bottom lip by starting at the center and working toward the corner of your mouth. Use the built-in brush of the Power Line™ Plumping Lip Liners to blend the color.
4. APPLY YOUR LIPSTICK OR LIP GLOSS
Swipe some lipstick across your bottom and top lip and use a lip brush to blend it into your lip liner. Once you’re happy with how it looks, apply a lighter shade of lipstick onto the center of your lips to add the finishing touch. If you want to use lip gloss instead, the creamy, matte texture of the lip liner serves as a primer and will help keep your lip gloss from fading right away. Make sure to use a nude or lighter shade of lip liner.
Can't decide between lipstick and lip gloss? Try layering the two! Add some lip gloss on top of your lipstick for irresistibly luscious lips.
LIP LINER TECHNIQUES FOR SEXY, KILLER LIPS
A lip liner can enhance the natural shape of your lips or even change it a little bit. Here are some lip liner application techniques that will give you that fuller pout:
If you’ve always wondered how to apply lip liner for fuller lips, grab your lip liner and trace a perimeter over your lip shape instead of on it. This technique is called overlining and is used by babes everywhere to add a little spice to their everyday look.
If you're looking to plump up your pout, use BUXOM's Power Line™ Plumping Lip Liner, which makes your lips fuller and plumper using specialized peptides.
PRIMING WITH CONCEALER
If you’re feeling bold and adventurous and want your lips to say so, start by priming your lip line with concealer. Blend it with a sponge or brush until it doesn't show where skin ends and your lips begin. This technique makes it easier to draw a lip line of your own, even if it is outside your actual lip line.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SHADE
A big part of enhancing your lips with the right lip liner depends on the shade you use. Remember to always go for a lip liner that is the same shade as the lipstick or lip gloss you will be using. Use a darker lip liner for a bold, confident look. Use a lighter lip liner if you want seamless, lush lips. You can also go for a nude one instead to give your lips the extra pout you’ve always wanted to have.
BUXOM'S Power Line™ Plumping Lip Liner has plenty of colors for you to choose from. Keep one in your purse or makeup kit all the time so you have all that you need to make your lips plumper and poutier.
SWIPE IT ON
Once you learn how to do lip liner, you’ll get that bossy babe look you’re going for, especially if you pair it with the right kind of lipstick or lip gloss. Remember—it’s all about practicing until you get that fierce, bold look you’re satisfied with.
