Rosebud lips make any look prettier! The secret to pink lips that last is lip liner, but I wouldn’t go near the stuff for years!
Nicole Kidman has gorgeous lips that look full and pouty. To achieve this look and make it last all night, layer on a lip liner under your lipstick and gloss! Keep reading to see how my love affair with liner started.
Lip liner to me seemed outdated and unnecessary. Why complicate my lip look with one more product?
My whole way of thinking about liner changed when I stopped in at Bergdorf Goodman on 5th Avenue in NYC on September 10, 2010 for Fashion’s Night Out. Vogue‘s Anna Wintour hosts the exciting night filled with fashion and beauty parties and events all over the city. Stores keep their doors open late and people sweep in from the streets to sip champagne and explore!
My friends and I decided to have our makeup done at the Yves Saint Laurent counter to start off the night right. After applying a full face of makeup, my YSL makeup artist whipped out a lip liner. I assured the sweet girl that I really didn’t use lip liner and that we could skip that step, but she insisted and I relented. She lined my lips with YSL’s Dessin Des Lovres liner in #17 Rose and then filled them in until they were completely covered with the color. Not only did I love the soft pink shade, the makeup artist just followed up the liner with a sheer gloss!
I spent the rest of the night running all over the city visiting different stores and events and at the end of the night, my lip color hadn’t faded in the least! I went back to Bergdorfs and bought the liner the very next day.
Do you have a beauty product that it took you a bit of convincing to begin using?
