3 Ways To NOT OverLine Your Lips

How NOT to Over Line Your Lips

We’ve recently talked about over-lining your lips and how it can help give you that Kylie Jenner look. If done right, it really can make an improvement. But when it comes to ‘doing it right there seems to be some confusion with.

You should never over-line your lips with a color that doesn’t match your normal lipstick perfectly.


Doing so will make you look like a clown, and will make it obvious that you’ve over-lined your lip because your lip color doesn’t match your outer line.

Look at this girl. She’s a model in the UK. I found this picture of her on Facebook and almost fell over. What could be an otherwise really pretty girl has ruined her looks to the point that she looks almost comical because she used a lip liner many shades darker than her lips.

3 Things To Avoid When Overlining Your Lips 

1. Never Overline Using Different Colors From Your Natural Lip Color

When you use a different color other than your natural lip color it creates a bold shade on your lips making it unnatural and bad. If you are using the same color as your lip color it will fade with your natural lip color and give you a bright and beautiful look. 


2. Don’t Apply Too Much OverLiner On Your Lips

When using lip liner do not apply too much because it will ruin your lip’s makeup. When applying makeup you have to make sure you are using the products as they are suggested using it excessively will not only ruin your appearance it will create a bad impression. 

3. Avoid Use Multiple Shades

When applying outliner avoid using multiple shades. Once you are getting ready to go out you usually try to match your outliners with your dress colors trying to make it twin with each other. To do that don’t use multiple shades because it will make it worse and ruin your appearance.
