What Goes Wrong: Once your lipstick disappears, you’re left with a dark outline around your lips.
Beauty Fix: Dark liner with a lighter lipstick is an early '90s look and can date you. A better strategy is to match your liner and lipstick or opt for a nude liner that matches your natural lip color.
“Liner helps to keep color on your lips as long as possible. It’s not a definer,” explains Mathew Nigara, a makeup artist for NYC New York Color. Try to draw along your lips’ natural line; too far out and you risk having the color run into the fine lines around your mouth.
