Can you wear lip liner without lipstick? Yes, of course you can. Wearing lip liner without lipstick can give a modern and matte look, perfect for daywear. Here’s how:
I recently learned a new lip makeup trick from my latest visit to the Dior makeup boutique – the chic way to create matte-ish lips is without using a lipstick at all. First use a lip balm (I used Maybelline Baby Lips in peach). Then line the lips using a lip-liner. For this I used Dior Contour Lip Liner Pencil 043 which is my new favorite! And finally, fill the lips in with it too.
This kind of a technique gives very light-wear and velvety finish which doesn’t look too dark. So it’s perfect for everyday makeup.
The makeup for this look is all about creating a youthful face that looks freshly washed even after hours! I did this by creating a base that covered blemishes. Then I wore a winged eyeliner that complemented the shape of my eyes, and paired it with matte pink lip color. I finished off the makeup look with blush on the apples of my cheeks and highlighter on the cheekbones.
